Living Hive by Fyreant Living Hive by Fyreant
And another Magic card! This one was a bugger-up on my part. Got carried away with the piece and made it the wrong aspect ratio. Arguably one of the biggest brainstones I've ever passed.

Photoshop 6, over a pencil underdrawing.

this was one of my faves back in the day. i remember fighting it with the slag wurm. :D ah, how stupid me and my friends were, not even understanding the difference between a spell and a creature in play.

thanks for the memories.

It's a pity this wonderful art hasn't been showed properly on the card. Now that I can see it entirely, with these little green ants, it gets much more sense...

Love it.

For some reason, what caught my eye was the sky.
It seems like there is like a whirlpool or
cyclone or something in the sky.

I think this is one of the best Magic arts :clap: :clap:.
Sadly, in the final card we can't see the little ants generated by the hive.
I think that one of the greater faults of Magic cards is that the art is wider than high: this caused the elimination of the lower part of the illustration, wich is DEFINITELY better when seen entirely.

Whoa, I love the card and I love the bugs in the front, it's such a shame that didn't make it on the card. I never knew it used to be this high but I'm really glad I've seen it now :)
They should print this card as textless promo some time :p

Well, that's largely my fault. I fell in love with my composition and this is NOT the ratio for Magic cards. Nobody at WOTC's end caught this in time for me to make changes. As a card it doesn't work well. :P
