Even though we've been talking about Judgment lately, this edition of Sketches is going back to the face of Torment,Chainer, Dementia Master. Chainer was drawn by Mark Zug.

1. Art Description

These are the instructions given to the artist:

"This card should show the character Chainer in a very insane pose."

It is arguable how "insane" the pose that Mark depicted is.

2. Sketch

This is the preliminary sketch submitted by Mark. The picture is larger than the one on the card because it was also used for the cover of the Chainer's Torment novel.

3. Final Art

Here is a large version of his final piece. This is the uncropped book cover art.

4. Card

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