MTG - Soul Conduit by Cryptcrawler MTG - Soul Conduit 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]

I REALLY enjoyed this one as well, im a sucker for Frankenstein-esque mad science and really 80's horror and sci-fi movies in general, I called upon all that thick, black gooey goodness for this piece.

Art Direction: Jeremy Jarvis

i love finding MTG art on deviant because you can see so much more detail than just what's on the card

Looks amazing, love the color choices and the lightning. I wonder why you picked the yellow/brownish lightning color in the bottom right corner? It works great, but I think I would never have picked that color, so I'm really curious why you decided to pick that color.

Your pieces are of a different caliber than most of the MTG artists, my friend. You're pushing the boundaries of how much information a human mind can invent for one piece of art. Or perhaps you aren't human?

I wouldn't want to comment all of the cards you did in this set, so I'll keep it for my favourite - this one. :) It's the most outstanding of the six (or was it five ?) ! Nice composition and framing, colourful, various FX and surfaces... This artwork rocks !! :D
