Style Guide - Leonin
Posted in Arcana
on January 19, 2004
Below are a few sketches from the Mirrodin Style Guide, which is a document given to artists that worked on the set for reference. This first sketch shows a Leonin, the race of cat humanoids associated with the color White (see also "Mirrodin Environments: White"). Note how the Leonin, like most races on the plane of Mirrodin, has its flesh fused and intermingled with metal.
These sketches inspired the illustrations in such creature cards as Leonin Abunas, Leonin Den-Guard, Leonin Elder, and Leonin Skyhunter, and the artifact cards Leonin Scimitar (left) and Leonin Sun Standard.
Leonin claws (below) are nasty metallic structures!
