Scent of a Gamer

From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.

MtG artists: Jung Park

Jung Park is a well-known and highly-regarded concept artist, so it was a real treat to see him producing finished card art for Magic the Gathering. Behind the scenes he has been involved in world-building activities, bringing the various locations of Magic to life.

Here are some of my favourites, there is a definite bias towards land art here:

Swamp

mtgswamp_m14_jungpark

A memorable art for one of the simpler pieces in Magic – basic land art. These are important to get right. Players will spend a lot of time with this art in front of them, yet it must not overpower the board, since it’s a fairly simple component.

City of Brass

This is a reprint, with some epic art work from Jung Park!

Island

This island from Magic Origins depicts Jace’s home plane of Vryn, with its system of mage-wheels.

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx

This card became an instant classic when it was published in the Theros block, becoming a favourite art of many players. It has a powerful effect in the game, too!

Thopter Spy Network

Thopter Spy Network is the only non-land card in this selection, even though it is a cityscape! The enchantment in the game will give you a free flying artifact creature each turn, as long as you already control one.
