Incremental Growth - MTG by ClintCearley
Incremental Growth - MTG
Card image for the Khans of Tarkir set of Magic: The Gathering. Card text:
"Put a +1/+1 counter on target creature, two +1/+1 counters on another target creature, and three +1/+1 counters on a third target creature.
The bonds of family cross the boundaries of race."
Kheru Spellsnatcher - MTG by ClintCearley
Kheru Spellsnatcher - MTG
Created for the Khans of Tarkir set of Magic: The Gathering. Brief called for a naga to be sneaking through the underground waterways after stealing a piece of blue magic.     
Prismatic Spray - Dungeons and Dragons by ClintCearley
Prismatic Spray - Dungeons and Dragons
Another image I did for the D&D 5th Edition Player's Handbook. The brief said "Iconic human wizard catches a foe with a Prismatic Spray spell" and gave the description of the 7th level spell. I had a lot of fun with this one as D&D is classic high fantasy and I got to choose the location, enemies and define the look of the spell. The wizard was fairly straight-forward; long robes, beard, staff but I wanted something very different for the enemies so I picked the amphibian Chuuls who love murky waters. Instead of the classic dungeon I thought an overgrown tropical temple would be fitting place that an adventuring wizard might encounter some Chuuls. Lighting-wise I chose to have two shafts of light; one behind the wizard to silhouette him and one to show off the foreground Chuul. It was important that the rest be shadowed so the colors of the spell would be very visible.
