Barbed Battlegear by SteveArgyle Barbed Battlegear by SteveArgyle
The change of the title to this piece was unfortunate. After some rough debate, the Magic the Gathering crew decided to scrap the original title of "Dr. Grope McSqueezles' Super Fun Time Hugging Machine." (Now with "ghetto booty" grip!)

- Once again, the astute viewer-player will note that this is slightly different than the version on the card.

For Magic: the Gathering. Art direction by Jeremy Jarvis. Copyright Wizards of the Coast.

Scarves by Miskatonic Tentacle Warmers Specialty Inc.

If this was the art for the card, it would be in a frame on my wall because I would be afraid to play it. Great job, Mr. Argyle xD

This is just something else.. Wow... :wow:

What a brilliant character design! The metalwork is amazing, so detailed and well contoured/shaded and the crackling electric/fire stuff is phenominal! :O How on earth do you paint that!?

In awe, as ever, keep up the inspirational stuff! :love:

Lovely, but a tad busy. It doesn't read well as a thumb, perhaps some more contrast between the background and the creature? Wonderful details though of course.
