Thought Hemmorhage Sketch

Posted in Arcana on April 13, 2009

By Wizards of the Coast

It's a little early in the Alara Reborn previews to be looking at sketches, but, well, Thought Hemorrhage just looks so cool. And we've been looking at it since it appeared on the Alara Reborn Visual Spoiler last Wednesday. So why wait?

Art Description

Color: Black and red spell
Location: Esper interior
Action: A human from Esper, clad in mostly white, has fallen to her (or his) knees inside a pristine Esper building of some kind. She covers her face with her hands, and blood runs from between her fingers and drips on her clothing.
Focus: the woman crying blood
Mood: a psychic trauma made physical

Final Art

Finished Card

And here's the card in all its glory, as it will appear in Alara Reborn boosters. The prerelease is April 25-26.
