This week's "Sketches" looks at one of the most popular new Legions cards, the Zombie Cleric Withered Wretch by veteran Tim Hildebrandt.
1. Art Description
Withered Wretch is interesting in that the art was originally commissioned for an Onslaught card that was to be named "Shadowcrafter." Shadowcrafter was eventually cut from the set, and from the electronic file, so whatever it was supposed to do is lost to the sands of time.
Shadowcrafter was obviously a Zombie Cleric of some type, however, so it the art fit well onto Withered Wretch.
This is the preliminary sketch submitted by Tim.
3. Final Art
Here is a large version of the final piece.
Finally, here is the card as you know it today.
