With a whole new 350-card set to look at, we're quickly turning "Sketches" sites to Onslaught. The first installment will cover the card Mark debuted yesterday, Snapping Thragg by Iain McCaig.

1. Art Description

These are the instructions given to the artist:

"Location: Skirk Ridge
Action: multi-headed mountain beast. Some of his bonespurs spit flames."

One of the defining characteristics of the beasts in Onslaught is their bonespurs, horn-like growths that spring from these creatures.

2. Sketch

This is the preliminary sketch submitted by Iain. His sketches have a quick, rough feel.

3. Final Art

Here is a large version of the final piece.

4. Card

Finally, here is the card as you all know it today. Or, rather, as you'll know it at the Prerelease!
