MTG: Quicksilver Amulet by Cryptcrawler MTG: Quicksilver Amulet by Cryptcrawler
One of several cards that I had the pleasure of illustrating for the 2012 Magic the Gathering Core Set.

You can go here to learn all about it and see some of the amazing art in the image gallery: [link]
It was a great change of pace to be able to do a still life, inanimate object but still try to give it life and warmth. Hopefully I delivered on it.

I know an artist who complained about getting an item card for a game we are both working on, like he was too good for it. I hope he sees this and how you utterly knocked out of the ballpark and into the next universe. You definitely delivered here man, can't wait to see more and more of your work!

the creature in the right, that one who looks like a "sharktopus", remembers me those "deep ones" from Lovecraft tales... and the movie Sharktopus

When I first saw this on a card, I instantly thought of the V838 Moncerotis star. Did you by any chance take inspiration from the Hubble images when working on this?

Hee hee!

Thank you, thats a very kind compliment.
No 3D base though my man.
I don't do 3D or photo paintovers - that is cheating in my book!

Is that a sharktopus? I figured I might as well ask the artist who designed it. In any case, the artwork is beautiful.

Does the amulet allow you to summon a Sharktopus? 'Cause that'd be awesome. ;)
