Making this 3D Kiki-Jiki was a lot of fun. For a long time I avoided cutting up cards that cost more than $1 each unless they were commissions; I'm glad I let that go because a lot of my favorite 3Ds would never have been made otherwise.
here. The card itself is currently in Trick Jarrett's possession, along with a bunch of other awesome Kiki-Jikis - foil Japanese, From the Vaults, and a Guru alter by Eric Klug.

Back in the day, this was one of my favorite cards. Stealing effects of any type seemed insanely powerful to me. I was very happy when I was contacted to make this for someone whose love for the card was stronger than mine.

I made this for an article on GatheringMagic because it won a poll for which card I should do next. I don't dislike the finished product, but I think that being 3D makes it less creepy. Part of the atmosphere of the original art is the murky darkness of the room; detailing the spine, blades, and pincers takes away from that by defining the borders of everything too much.
