MtG: Arachnogenesis by algenpfleger MtG: Arachnogenesis by algenpfleger
Here's a painting I did for Magic's new Commander set, called Arachnogenesis, basically Spider Fog! I did something that I hardly ever do here which is paint an entire image with almost nothing but the basic round brush. Usually I'm all about efficiency when it comes to commercial work (more time for other things) but this for some reason I felt like doing that way. It ended up taking forever (four or five days I believe which is super long for me) and it doesn't really make up for the lost time in any way except really teaching you how to focus on the important bits. Custom brushes (oh boy that word) do have the tendency to kinda lure you into becoming a bit dumber I think in that you rely on them to do a bit of the work for you. Which is good when it saves you time, but bad when it turns out you don't know how to do it yourself (which is never because you can always use them. Art autism, there you go). Either way I'll post up some steps later too. Cheers! And and if you do play Magic (as opposed to just being here for the paintings) check out my Patreon, I make a bunch of sweet tokens for everyone: www.patreon.com/johannesvoss

That is one of the best and most overpowered cards in the new Commander decks! I love the art, it looked very appealing and familiar, now that I see that you made the art, I see why. Great work!

This, so very much.

But it's not gonna happen, painting is done, cards are printed. :/

Yeah, but other MtG artists like Clint Cearly have updated their card art before for full size viewing even though the cards were already printed though. Personally I couldn't stand leaving that big of a mistake in my gallery, at least not on something that recent, but that's just me.

Interesting, didn't know that.
And no, it's not just you, I'd want to get it fixed asap too and I know /ic/ has been bashing this piece as well.

But looking through the other comments here it seems like most people either don't care or don't see it, neither of which is a very good sign.
