Broken Concentration - MTG by ClintCearley Broken Concentration - MTG by ClintCearley
Created for the Shadows over Innistrad set of Magic: The Gathering. The brief:
"...an older man reaching toward us in anguish. Now imagine we were seeing that image in a mirror -- and that mirror has been shattered. We see fragments of the anguished man across the broken shards of glass. Maybe we see his despairing eyes repeated across several of the mirror-shards -- and strangely, his same face has taken on subtle mutations in several of the images."

I would love to see a process video for this one. The shattered face is insane.

Very well execution and interpretation of the brief you were given. As I hope to work for Wizards eventually, it's always interesting to read some of the actual prompts given to artists, so thanks for adding those! : )

Dude, as someone who fights severe ADHD, I have to commend you. You finally gave me something I can show to people when they ask why I can't concentrate! Even when playing Magic, I have to take my time and even write down my future moves, haha. Thank you! You're a genius!
