Upper Deck continues their series on the art of the game
by talking to two artists
who've done some terrific work for the TCG, Zoltan Boros and Gabor Szikszai
. The two partners talk about how they make some of the art of the card game (with a Wacom Cintiq
-- drool), and specifically how they made a couple of multi-card pieces. For the most recent raid deck, they had to make a mural of Magtheridon and his channelers that went across five cards, and that the challenge wasn't just creating an interesting piece of art overall, but also making each card interesting enough to stand on its own.
Very cool interview, and definitely neat to see what these two guys are like, working on the forefront of digital painting.
