MTG - Vault Skirge by Cryptcrawler MTG - Vault Skirge by Cryptcrawler
You can buy a PRINT of Vault Skirge here: [link]

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]

This was the very first magic card I was assigned, itll always have a special place in one of the dark, dripping corners of my mind.

Art Direction: Jeremy Jarvis

Awesome as usual.

Have you ever made any tutorials? I'd love to see how you go about making such a piece.
Do you use 3D models and then work on them in photoshop?
