Let's take a look at one of the promos revealed yesterday, Pain Seer. Here's a look at the normal version you can get out of a booster pack and the Game Day promo you can earn at the event.


I love both versions of this art but let's take another look at the promo version of the card. First off, here's the initial sketch that Mark Winters turned in.

What immediately popped out at me is that there are legs hanging in the art, something that was subtle enough that I didn't realize it when I looked at it. I also love seeing what the tools of the trade are for a pain seer. When it comes to the final piece it's largely the same concept with just a few things changed to clean up and simplify the piece.
