Dungrove Elder

I was pleasantly surprised that I'd be able to show this one this early. Dungrove Elder is one of the first cards spoiled for the upcoming Magic 2012 core set. I always enjoy any chance to paint trees. It's oils on paper mounted to MDF, 12" x 16".

Pestilent Souleater

As if being a "souleater" was bad enough, this guy's pestilent as well. This is the fifth and final card I've got in the New Phyrexia set. The design of this creature, just as the pliers headed guys in the last post, were given to me by WotC. My job is to show it in its environment doing something, preferably pestilent in this case. Hence, more slime.

The sketch. Unlike most pieces that require a lot of adjusting, composition changes, and redrawing, this one pretty much came out in one try.

Gremlin Mine

Another one for New Phyrexia. The creatures in the background have set a mine for some unfortunate passer-by. They've made the mine out of the metal bodies of the fallen comrades. I based its design on a naval mine. It's oils on paper mounted on MDF, 9" x 12".
