Shared Trauma - MTG by ClintCearley Shared Trauma - MTG by ClintCearley
Completed this illustration for Magic: The Gathering last October and it's just been released in the new green Commander set.
The original brief was more complicated than this scene so the art director allowed me to change it to this. Definitely had some learning experiences during this one :D

Oh wow.

I could never figure out what the hell was going on in the art on the original card size.
This is pretty cool!

when illustrating for MTG how do you know what they want the image for the card to look like?

Artists are sent a brief describing the scene to be depicted. The general look for places, people, architecture etc. is often already defined in a styleguide which the artist references in order to make sure everything is accurate to that line of cards. The brief outlines the subject, the mood, the focus of the scene and various other pertinent details. A large amount of creative license is allowed however as the background, camera view, specific clothes, time of day etc are usually not defined. A sketch must be submitted and approved before sending the final.
