As Magic the Gathering fan/player, I’ve always been fascinated by the beauty of the illustrations on some cards !
But the bad thing about those cards is, that the art never gets it’s moment to shine ! The actual art is much bigger, as how it should be seen… the trimmed down version on the card is like a low graph thumbnail used on websites.
So now for an update, a very talented member of the Magic the Gathering artists : Greg Staples. But like many other artists in that large pool, also Greg started drawing with other projects !! He has also been involved in some mayor comic projecs, like Judge Dredd and Batman to name a few.
I like his illustrations, but can’t exactly tell you why, I just do !! So without any further rambling, here some cool examples ( look at that Batman ! ). More available here…
