This week's Sketches looks at the Judgment rare Golden Wish by Alan Pollack.
1. Art Description
These are the instructions given to the artist:
"This is a white card and should show a djinn offering a female nomad a splendid looking glowing ring. The nomad should appear overjoyed to receive the gift."
The card was originally called "Nomad's Wish."
This is the preliminary sketch submitted by Alan.
Alan then voluntarily sent in a second sketch, fearing that when his original image was shrunk down to card size, the ring wouldn't be visible at all. His new sketch brings the action closer to the ring itself.
3. Final Art
Here is a large version of his final piece. He opted to go with the close-in version, and it turned out beautifully.
Finally, here is the card as you all know it today.
