Making of Viking Showcase Cards
Folks at Wizards of the Coast talked about how they went about making these cool-looking cards. First, James Arnold, senior graphic Designer for Magic the Gathering, spoke about his inspiration:
“I went to the National Nordic Museum and spent time looking at incredibly ancient Viking artifacts for inspiration. I remember running my hand along the side of a centuries-old Viking ship and feeling the wood grain worn smooth by lifetimes of adventure; that was the feeling I was looking to capture with this frame.
With the rough, powerful feel of the frames, it only made sense that the artwork would follow suit. Tom Jenkot secured the talents of some truly incredible artists to breathe life (and unlife) into these illustrations.”James Arnold, senior graphic designer for MTG
Furthermore, Tom Jenkot, principal art director for Magic the Gathering, explained how the first art pieces for Viking Showcase cards got made:
“We worked on the frames first. They came together perfectly thanks to James Arnold. We had some placeholder art in the frame that we thought fit perfectly. Luckily, I convinced that artist, GodMachine, to do a couple pieces for us!
GodMachine couldn’t do all the illustrations, so I had to find some others who could do this normally black and white style with some color. We found some of the best out there to lend a hand, and they showed up in a big way. Of note, I was happy to have Ian Miller lend a hand. Ian’s been doing Magic art forever. He’s also been doing Death Metal style before Death Metal was a thing!”Tom Jenkot, principal art director for MTG
So a lot of thought went into making those amazing cards – and it definitely shows.
