Wagic free licensed special art.

Post by Amarquez »

I'm a graphic artist (on real life mediums, like oils and watercolors, I suck at Photoshop), as presumptuous as that might sound, and I was wondering: has it been suggested that Wagic could use it's own art? what I mean is, I would like to go and create a batch of illustrations for, say, the thinnest card set, all original illustrations for the Wagic cards in no way based on the Magic counterparts, so Wagic could be released with competent, own graphics. and we could even shake the framing here and there. After all, what is life good for, if not for working for free?

Of course, the sets everyone uses would remain what they are, an option for fans to apply if they chose to.

For me, it would be a great incentive to build a respectable portfolio, and maybe, eventually, some money for my tortillas. Also, I think I could get some people on board, after all, ten thousand plus cards are a lot of work. I really have no idea how many card are there

I hope to have an answer from a dev. In any case, I'll go ahead and make some.

The devs have been dormant for a little while now... we've had several artists contributing art (for example, the Orc in the shop is 100% original artwork), but for cards this would be a ginormous task. Nevertheless if you can provide some cards art, I'm sure the community will definitely enjoy it.

I would say this will go in the next release if we like it, but I don't know when/if there will be a next official release.

From a personal point of view, can't wait to see what you can produce though :)

I'll post someones here as I go by making them, I'll try to keep it simple and steady so my pacing don't slow down, then I'll see if I can wrap up a package, I've at least one person in mind that may also contribute and I'll create a DeviantArt account if things go well, maybe I can drag some attention there.

Cheers.

I'm really curios to see some of your artwork, but I didn't understand if the project that is in your mind is to create an original artwork for every single Magic card! It would be a very ambitious project!

Yes and no, it would be near impossible to make one art for every card, no matter how cheap the art is. Right now I'm tackling a sole expansion as a project of mine, I'm making Fifth Dawn first, I'm making the first drafts on 22 x 27 (aprox) paper sheets, once I'm done with the sketches (I'm working on batches of sixteen) I'll upload them here, ink them, photocopy them, color the photocopy by a variety of means, and upload them again, right now I'm at half the sketching process of the first batch.

Once I get a fresh batch, I'll upload them to DeviantArt with a link to Wololo's Wagic page and a description of the project, if they want to contribute.

Basically that, cheers!

Reporting on this, it has proven to be a very tedious work to try to go card by card, so to shakethis up, i'd like to receive some requests, if some people here feels some cards really need a makeover or just want to see one of their favorites reimagined, i'll gladly do so. please, someone request.

i'd love to see a reimagined Akroma, Angel of Wrath and Phage the Untouchable... and maybe another Oblivion Ring artwork (the only one I really liked was the Lorwyn print of it)
