MtG: Avacyn's Pilgrim by algenpfleger MtG: Avacyn's Pilgrim by algenpfleger
Heya! Here's more work `janaschi and I did back in the 18th century! This is for Magic: The Gathering's new Innistrad set which is shaping up to be a really flavorful set O_O

You and Jana have done a beautiful job with these illustrations. I think your style fits quite well with MtG, most particularly for this set.

It may be because of all the different directions in the strokes that have been used there but the river feels kinda off. I like the leather jacket ^^ Could you explain how you two work together ? Does one make the outlines or sketches and the other the color ?

Amazing job on the clothes, as always! They're very sharp. But that makes it look a bit weird contrasting with the background. The background is detailed and clear, but looks different. The foreground is so sharp it looks almost animated and to me that just doesn't totally hit it. But I suppose that's my personal opinion. Great work!

MtG cards always did have the coolest art work... Now that I'm getting a close look at these, sometimes I have a hard time believing it's not 3D modeling! It's just really cool painting!

I really hope that Wizards of the Coast will realize that that style is far too sterile for Magic cards. The whole figure seems to be "flat" in 2D, there are no details like fingernails etc. etc.

:iconalexavander:
AlexAvander Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
You can hardly see the fingernails when it's on a card and I've seen "flatter" images than this who've managed to look almost-autenthic when on the complete product. I like it, and many agree.

:iconandrekowalski:
AndreKowalski Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2011
I don't say that this isn't good, it just doesn't seem to fit to the art style of Magic. And by the way, check out Volkan Baga's work: he paints every little detail in oils and he doesn't mind if the final image is as small as a trading card illustration. These details give the pictures their "soul".

while i can agree with the 'sterile' style opinion, it might be fair to mention that adding littler details like fingernails in this type of illustration wouldn't be the best use of a trading card illustrator's time *_*

dasAoD Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2011
Exactly -- when the final published image is at such a small scale, it is far more important to focus on the major aspects of the artwork, such as composition, lighting and colour palette, instead of rendering out all sorts of insignificant, and possibly distracting detail. ( Not to mention that professional illustrators will rarely have time for that, as you've implied. )
