MTG: Apostle's Blessing by Cryptcrawler MTG: Apostle's Blessing by Cryptcrawler
One of 6 cards I had the pleasure of illustrating for Magic the Gathering's lastest expansion: New Phyrexia

You can see all the spoiler cards here at the official site: [link]

Check that spoiler gallery out, INCREDIBLE stuff.

Thank you very much for all the amazing interest and kind compliments, I hope my art continues to earn it.

The tiny reliefs in its helmet eye slots are an awesome touch.

The bending pages of the book really do it for me. I really love how that connects with me in comparison to what I am used to seeing.

well considering that this is one of my favorite card game ever other is yugioh and well ill say it munchkin is there too but yeah this art is one of the reasons i keep collecting cards to be honest great work i would like to know more of the stories behind the game though it would be nice if they ever come up with a story behind most of the cards captions are nice but the story is what intrigues me behind the most powerful enemies and allies of this game

When i first saw this pic, i thought it would be a Red creature, maybe a cleric of Urabrask's. But it turned out to be a white instant, and a neat one, too. Will be hot stuff when Brave the Elements rotate out.

Almost looks like he's gallantly protecting the homunculus. Which is odd, since i can't see his expression, but he certainly seems to radiate valor. Great job on this piece, you're actually made the phyrexians look capable of gallantry!
