Worship the Infection by ChunLo Worship the Infection by ChunLo
Could've sworn I uploaded this on here before?

Well this is fan art for my favorite Magic the Gathering set yet: New Phyrexia.

So obviously I wanted to depict the Machine Orthodoxy in all it's stained porcelain glory.

Hope you guys enjoy it, I'm planning on doing more based on the other 4 factions. Let me know what you guys think about this idea, hopefully I depicted the flavor of Phyrexia well.

I agree with everyone here it seems, you have done some awesome work on this.

I for one would love to see a series of these for each of the praetors. Vorinclex is my fav by the way, in case you were wondering where to go next :)

This art is amazing. It definitely gives a good feel for the flavor of New Phyrexia. I like that the focus is on a giant Phyrex-ified Karn. It sent more than a few chills down my spine seeing that.

I created two decks to honor the Phyrexian forces. I love to scare my opponents with infect monsters.

Not really Phyrexian, Yawgmoth and his ugly machines are nowhere to be found :P

I really like New Phyrexia, Elesh Norn and Urabrask are my favourite praetors, and Norn's whole porcelain legion thing is very badass.

I've seen a paintover / crit at awesome-horse.
It's a really nice piece and with some little changes it could very well be awesome.
dont know if you've seen this, but I guess so.

golden ratio for the masterpriest, more distance fog and try mirroring to see more problems (I'd play around with it). And try changing the size of the front guy.. smaller or bigger.
It all comes with playing around I'd say

I've watched the critique video several times and matched it against Darksabata's original and have to say that I like his original much better. Maybe the size of the front guy can be made larger but I think it looks good the way it is. One important thing I noticed about Awesome-Horses mods is that they took away the artist's fine detail and replaced it with the "smoky" spraycan effect, which only serves to dull the image. I understand the concept of wanting to dull the image in certain works of art so as to force the viewer to focus more on the main subject of a piece but I prefer and appreciate the details artist's such as Chun Lo put into their paintings. There are certainly works of art that you can and should apply this technique to but this is not one of them. Take a look at Chun Lo's original (above) and contrast it against Awesome-Horse's finished product (around the 11:35 mark in their video) to see what I mean. Of course this is just my opinion and beauty is in the eye of the beholder but I think this type of painting, as envisioned by the artist, should be left "as is" so as to retain the detail and imagery as it is intended to be.
