Ravnica Green by Fyreant Ravnica Green by Fyreant
Magic: the Gathering is a strategy-based card game where land (swamps, islands, forests, mountains and plains) constitute the backbone of your spellcasting power. Land cards are the most plentiful cards you can imagine, meaning they get seen by a zillion players. Getting to do land cards is a big deal. I still feel pretty happy with these paintings, though I (like any good artist) see all sorts of problems now. Whatever. 'twas a learning experience.

Drawn by hand, started in Painter XIII, finished in Photoshop 6.

I have a Garruk themed deck, using only this land, and the other lands from the same set. I use to have the big pictured land, but when i saw this i had to change it out. I know land isn't a big part of the gameplan, but i always try using land that fits my personality. And i love the look and feel of what's going on inside that picture.

Cool, this is one of my favourites from "drawing and painting fantasy landscapes and cityscapes" and also one of my favourite forest cards :)
I hope to be able to make illustrations for Magic the gathering in the future, though I don't know if that dream will ever come true.
