This week's "Sketches" looks at one of the new Legions "Muses," Seedborn Muse by Adam Rex. Adam has been doing Magic art since Mirage, so he is an old hand at it.
1. Art Description
These are the instructions given to the artist:
"Color: Green Location: Krosan Forest.
Action: Show a beautiful female Spirit, somewhat ghostlike, in the Krosan Forest surrounded by large and vicious looking Krosan plants. She is walking past the plants unconcerned."
This is the preliminary sketch submitted by Adam.
The internal Creative team here felt that Adam's first sketch was a little too dainty and delicate for what looked to be a powerful card, so they asked him to make some slight changes. His updated sketch satisfied all involved parties.
3. Final Art
Here is a large version of the final piece. The plants aren't quite so noticeable now because the background is muted. The focus is clearly on the Muse.
Finally, here is the card as you'll see it at the prerelease.
