MTG Island by CrimsonMagpie MTG Island by CrimsonMagpie
More Magic card art. :dummy:

I tried for a majestic (again) and mysterious feel for this one, in keeping with the character of the most magically powerful element in Magic: The Gathering. This dictated the low horizon-line to emphasise the hugeness of the main island, and the strange shape of said island. Many existing island illustrations for this game depict coastal areas, so I wanted it blatantly obvious that this was an island, so it had to sit entirely within the picture.

Although I'm happy with the composition, the colours aren't like I imagined, which is a risk when one doesn't even know what one wants the colours to be like. I also rushed this one again, and fudged just about the whole thing. :c




Acrylic on paper, A3 (42 x 29.7cm, 16.5 x 11.7")

The colors you choose are beautiful. I love the main island, with it's window to the sun setting sky. Also, how you shaded it so it has depth, especially in the middle right.
Another lovely piece.

Iunno, they're just not very good. If I did it again I'd go for a more monotone look. :B

Of course you're going to disagree, you're the artist. :lol:

Out of your entire gallery, which piece are you the most proud of?

Indeed. =p

I don't really know... usually the most recent image I've completed, which isn't in my gallery at the moment.

Woah awesome landscape! I love that island! Hmm only thing is the colour of the sky doesn't seem to quite match the light on the land? But other than that, nice work! :)

Thanks, glad you like. :meow: Yea, the sky doesn't match well, I rushed this horribly and didn't have the time to consider it properly. :crying:
