Magic The Gathering: Fungal Sprouting by Cryptcrawler Magic The Gathering: Fungal Sprouting by Cryptcrawler
One of the cards I had the pleasure of illustrating for Magic The Gatherings 2013 Core Set.

You know you can't help but kind of giggle when you think of near man-sized forest-matter - animated by sentient fungi - coming to kick your ass, but then you realize that having dozens of logs busted upside your mellon would not be a laughing fuckin matter...

Ok, if it was someone else it probably would be.

Shroomy. This is fucking sick, I am seriously considering getting a Magic deck now, just for the Art. Do they sell artbooks of these collected somewhere?

I will refrain from gushing, suffice to say I LOVE this piece intensely, especially now that it's bigger than a few inches  Love

Love it. Really cool concept. Some types of fungal spores have been known to be able to control animals by infecting them funnily enough, so this may actually be possible. A good idea for a horror film, perhaps :D
