From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
Michael Komarck’s debut set was 2007’s Future Sight. With just over 50 cards illustrated in total, and the most recent new card illustration being from 2015, many magic players may not be familiar with this name.
The cards he has illustrated have featured some popular characters and places in the game.
This image of the planeswalker Elspeth Tirel stands in contrast to her usual depictions. Usually depicted as the humble or haunted hero, in this piece she is looking down on the viewer, standing tall and confident.
Here we see the army of Bant on the plane of Alara gathered for battle.
The knights of Bant ride giant lions called leotau and are covered in gold coins. Rafiq is one of the preeminent knights of that plane.
The vampire planeswalker Sorin Markov is a popular recurring character in the multiverse of Magic. Most recently he appeared in the 2019 War of the Spark set. This art by Michael Komarck was the character’s debut, and this stunning illustration ensured he would be both popular and memorable.
Towering over the plane of Zendikar is Kozilek, the Eldrazi titan. Kozilek was eventually brought low by the gatewatch.
We end of the plane of Innistrad with this art of a follower of Odric, one of the leaders of human efforts to survive against monsters, terrors, and more.

Visit Michael Komarck’s website to see more of his art in magic: the Gathering and beyond. He has chosen not to update his site for several years though.
Unfortunately these are not currently available – as I write this orders are not being fulfilled on his website. Hopefully this changes soon!.
