Battleground Geist - MTG by ClintCearley Battleground Geist - MTG by ClintCearley
For Magic: The Gathering's Innistrad set. Brief called for a spectral creature that is calling the spirits of dead warriors on a battlefield. I really have mixed feeling about this one. Time pressure caught me and some elements just didn't get handled the way I wanted. But I learned some valuable things about luminescence and workflow.

I think it's a She, like die walkure / valkyrie(s) who choose those who may die in battle and those who may live.
Looks skeletal and bug like or exoskeletal. The haze looks very natural and the purples, blues, whites give it a ominous and nightly feel. The perspective gives it an eerie starring-in-shock or onlooker who gazes at the scene in either fear or awe.

Wow, I appreciate your frank and candid opinion of your Innistrad art.

I think it looks great. It would be interesting to see what would be changed if time wasn't a factor.

Spooky! Reminds me of the Nightwalker from Princess Mononoke.

ikr! it's got that alien translucence that we all associate with the Nightwalker. The head shape and eyes don't really look like a human, but it's still beautiful.

Unfortunately, it's one of those pieces that needs to be seen up close. From a distance it's a bit indistinct, which is how it might appear on the cards.
Up close it's f*cking badass though.
