This week's Sketches looks at the Judgment rare Breaking Point from Matthew Wilson, the artist just featured in Behind the Canvas.

1. Art Description

These are the instructions given to the artist:

"This is a red card and should show Kamahl slamming his sword, with the Mirari attached to the pommel, into the ground. This causes the ground to erupt and sends lava streaming towards a battlefield. See reference for Kamahl."

2. Sketch

This is the preliminary sketch submitted by Matt. He was kind enough to label the lava for ease of viewing.

3. Final Art

Here is a large version of his final piece. Matt added the fire and energy wrapping around the sword blade.

4. Card

Finally, here is the card as you all know it today.
