Artful August, The Fifth Annual!
As in previous years, we want you to create a Custom Card, using original artwork created and owned by you. Cards will be judged on both standard contest design rules, as well as the artwork design and relation to the card concept presented.
Entries will be accepted from August 1st - August 31st. Winners to be chosen by our League of Judges and announced the first week of September. You may only enter one card url, so submit wisely. Cards may be directly edited (premium feature) on the same submission URL until the final day of the contest, but you cannot re-post/enter more than once.
This year we've decided to mix things up a bit! Cardsmiths who have won Artful August in the past are still allowed to compete in any category they choose, but they must change their medium if they want to win.
1st: $50 Amazon gift card + 2 months of premium membership
2nd: $25 Amazon gift card + 1 month of premium
3rd: $10 Amazon gift card + 1 month of premium
Best artwork award: Custom MTGCS Avatar from your original Artwork
Best Traditional art award: $25 Amazon gift card
Best pencil drawing: 1 month of premium
Now it's finally time for you to show us what you've got!

(I really wish I didn’t have to use such a low-resolution version of my art to make a card but ah well)
Art was done on my iPad on Procreate
(I assume that doesn't count haha)
The third route I considered was just keeping 1-3 the same, but making the token after checking for five creatures instead of before checking.
Revelation 13: 11-14 in Hollow Knight.
Never mind. I made this.
In case it's relevant, Utter here is being used as a verb not an adjective.
9x12, acrylic on canvas pad, color corrected in photoshop.
Unfortunately the image quality isn't great as my camera is pretty bad and my scanner is worse.
Very fun art!
Here's my guy. I think I did creatures the last two years and wanted to try a different card type. I'm including the original pencil drawing and a bigger version of the final.
From Peru? Sweet!
