The More Popular Brother of Rosheen Meanderer

The episode of Avant-Card Show I was on is currently up over at their site and on MtGCast.com. This is the Brion Stoutarm that I talked about during the show. I also featured it in my most recent article; there's not much to add to what I said there so I'll just link you over to it.

He Fronts a Math Rock Band from Ohio

When I made this 3D Craw Wurm for my first article over on GatheringMagic.com, I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it afterwards. I chose the card because it was a favorite of mine when I started playing but didn't know if anyone would want it.

Imagine my surprise when someone immediately contacted me looking to trade for it. Since then, I've had two more requests for a 3D Craw Wurm. I guess I wasn't the only one who considered it a favorite.

No idea what an Asura is

Last night I was a guest on the Avant-Card Show along with Eric Klug. Debbie recently commissioned us to make cards for her cohosts; Klug made a set of Avatar of Whoa for Christian and I made this Jenara, Asura of War for Brian and a Brion Stoutarm for Andrew.
 Art elements that float in the foreground such as Jenara's emblems are a problem for 3D alterers. I haven't found a perfect solution, but in this case I decided to raise them out and shift them to the background.
On both the Jenara and the Brion I also raised the mana symbols in the text box (and tap symbol on Brion), something I rarely do.

Lady in Pink

This is still one of my favorite 3D cards, and one I wish I still had. Shaving and weaving the pieces of her robe and hair took a ton of time but the result was pretty great. Sadly I didn't get great pictures before I sold it.

I'm leaving for GenCon in half an hour - if you're there, find me in the TCG hall.
