    This is a work in progress. I still have about 50 more cards to do. It will end up being about 120 surfaces in total because the person couldn't decide exactly which cards he wanted to build his deck from. I am cheerful about the extra cards, in spite of suppressing the urge to throttle and yell "Make up your mind!" XD

    The metallic paint on some of the cards doesn't really show without video. You'll have to take my word that some of them have MUCH BLING.

      Oh wow, this isn't even for yourself? I assumed you were doing all this work so that you could have your own fancy deck to be able to show off.

      This looks amazing though, I really like all the different stuff you've done with the forests. Did they give you a list of things they wanted for those or anything, or have you just been able to do whatever you felt like?

        They are giving me a minimal amount of monehs for it. I'll doodle on a card for 5 USD. Full art painting can get quite a bit more costly. Card painting is a hobby for me.

        The only suggestion they had was that they like pokemon and Miyazaki Hayao films. Truthfully, this would take a lot less time if they had been more specific. But I also would have gotten tired and bored if they had wanted all the same thing.

        Thank you for the feedback!

    Heh, is that No-Face in the forest? Given there is also some Sootballs, Yubaba's "Bird" carrying Rat-Boh and Princess Mononoke in the others, I would guess yes. Hello, fellow Ghibli fan! Awesome...

    Heh, is that No-Face in the forest? Given there is also some Sootballs, Yubaba's "Bird" carrying Rat-Boh and Princess Mononoke in the others, I would guess yes. Hello, fellow Ghibli fan! Awesome job on the M:TG cards. :)

    p.s. Spirited Away is one of my all time favorite movies.

      Spirited Away is one of my favorites too! I wanted to do a 5 card spread of Haku in dragon form, but then it wouldn't play as well visually. TT_TT

        I haven't seen you around Tildes in a while but just wanted to let you know I am still thinking occasionally about your awesome custom cards, especially any time someone brings up MTG here... And yes, I still desperately want to buy one of your Elvish Mystic to Princess Mononoke conversions. *hint hint* ;)

    Wow, I'm always impressed when I see these. I remember the first time I saw you post them on Facebook, I forgot that Magic cards normally have a border because the painting to the edge is so seamless~

        Ooph! I mean, I'm not surprised it takes that long because they look so good, but no wonder you're suppressing the urge to throttle them for being unable to make up their mind, haha.
