Nevinyrral's Disk by SteveArgyle Nevinyrral's Disk by SteveArgyle
To me, magic is the fantasy fiction equivalent of science. I'm not sure I can state this more fervently. I love science. I love technology. I love ingenuity and engineering. I would love it physically if it were possible, and I have faith that once again, science herself will deliver that miracle.

Feel free to picture me in a cheerleader outfit with the pi symbol across my overstuffed chest.

"Trinketeering for a better future!"

However, Nevinyrral's Disk has shown me that perhaps there is a call for moderation in even the awesomest things. The Disk is essentially a conveniently sized universe eraser button cleverly formulated to expunge all of God's unfair oversights. As a proud member of those oversights, I feel Nevy's Disk may have crossed the line of propriety in advancing arcane knowledge.

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

Apologies to the universe that was imploded to get reference photos.

(Check out the first sketch I sent into Wizards for Nevy's Disk. While it conveyed the purpose and power of the Disk, it seems it was slightly off in terms of flavor...) [link]

Looks epic. Universe will forgive you.

Yep. I either get the 50 proofs, (which are the cards with no backs,) or they give me 10-25 if it's a special edition or whatnot. Is nice.

It conveys the purpose of the card way better than the original artwork. So damn awesome that words can't entirely describe it.

i just love this picture, there is so much detail in it that the foil card kinda looses because of the foil process. i also have to admit its one of my fav cards. such stunning work on the disc it's self! i do hope you post more of our MTG work.

SteveArgyle Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
They should start using that foil for pots and pans or something. Nothing sticks to it. I've signed a bunch, just to have the sharpie ink bead up and fall off. I've coated one with primer to do an alteration, and even primer just popped off. It's like a cursed coating...

wow, Nevinyrral's disk is one of my fav cards!
Definitely a fav since your version of it is just EPIC!
as for the magic thing, i agree with you is like what science would be in a fantasy world... anyways to picture you in a cheerleader outfit, lol, well I'll leave that for other viewers...

Great work, as usual, congrats!

Oh, how I love Nevinyrral's Disk. It truly is one of those special cards that makes your opponents go "oh fffff-"... and your allies too, for that matter!

Gotta say that this new version looks particularly snazzy :D

I like the fact it looks like you could almost play frisbee with it... albeit a particularly painful game of frisbee, and probably one with a really unhappy ending.
