Mortivore by Fyreant Mortivore by Fyreant
Happy Halloween ;)

My favorite Odyssey piece by far is the Mortivore. Would I change things if I could? Of course! But he still stands as one of my most cherished monster designs. I love the idea of an ever-hungry undead beast!

Pencil and Painter.

The Mortivore is one of my favorite cards in the Planeswalker PC game. Your fantastic artwork plays no small part in my reasons for liking it. It's just so awesome looking.

Mortivore's my favorite Odyssey piece by far too =P

I like both colors and shadows, and that blueish light in its eyes' almost chilling; a real monster! Good job!

This dude was the x/x where x = #of swamps owned, right? I loved this card soooo much :) it always came out twenty minutes into the game when i had stockpiled half of the deck worth of mana XD

Anyway, thank you! A big part of my childhood and inspiration as an artist has come from staring at so many magic cards - only recently have a realized that so many of my favorites were done by you.

You rock!

OMG;
the artist of one of my favorite MTG-cards is here on DA
:wow: :wow:

have to ask one question though, 'cause I've always been a tiny little irritated by his face:
does the blue glow come from 3 eyes, the nostrils and his mouth or is his mouth closed?
Reply
:iconfyreant:
Fyreant Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
Hey you!

The glow's coming from within his skull, so that's light coming from his eyes and sinuses. Light's coming from inside his mouth, too, but it's closed (for the record).

sure;

it was just something that stayed on my mind for a long time -
I mean you got one of your fav-cards and you can't acctually recognize his face (especially if you make an attempt to draw him);
this large image made it a lot easier :)

It's a challenge, trying to make things read clearly at that size. That's why I admire folks like Mark Zug and Kev Walker so much; they excel at the task.

I can imgine it is
- it's acctually a shame that quite a few details are more or less getting lost, too;

do cardgame-artists acctually get to see how most of their work ultimately turned out on the cards?
I mean, you don't happen to get a copy of each card you design, do you?

Fyreant Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
We get Artist's Proofs (Magic cards without the Magic logo on the back). When we sign at conventions we often get a copy or two of regular Magic cards we've done, but that's about it.

Working with the Artist's Proofs is cool, though. The surface is a lot like bristol, and really forgiving.

Mortivore's power and toughness are each equal to the number of creature cards in all graveyards.

I assume it eats your opponent! Beyond that, I'd say it's up to you.
