Illustration of the Week #4: MtG: Even the Odds
This week you are given a real description for a real Magic the Gathering card. This card already exists, but imagine it is being reprinted and needs new art. The card in question is called Even the Odds
. The description the artist had for it was the same as is below. You must keep to the description but also ensure that it is not simply a ripoff of the original art. Here is what you have to work with:
Color: White Spell
Location: not important
Action: This spell "calls for reinforcements" when you're up against the ropes, in the form of three soldiers. How to represent this is up to you. One idea is to show a fallen soldier whose sword, helm, and shield have fallen onto the ground around him. The armaments reflect the fallen soldier's form, and those reflections have magically come to life and are emerging from the armaments, stepping foot into the real world.
Focus: The arriving reinforcements
Mood: the tide has turned
The deadline is Sunday 18th of September, 23:59 GMT
This is a full illustration that requires a high level of finish, so you have a full two weeks to complete it. Have fun!
