Snuff Out - Alternate Version. by SteveArgyle Snuff Out - Alternate Version. by SteveArgyle
Liliana Vess. Gorgeous supreme sorceress of the black arts.

Concubine of death and weaver of destruction, here we see just how easy it is for her to snuff out a life with her dark craft.

And yet, how many among us would kick her out of bed for eating crackers? Show of hands? Now, how many of us would still lay there smiling, although maybe a few scoots further away, if she were eating kittens in bed? Hands?

Indeed, Liliana's genius was revealed when first she asked the devils for eternal beauty. How powerful an attribute to lure prey, and soften one's enemies...

For Magic the Gathering. Art directed by Jeremy Jarvis.

Special thanks to Cheyenne, who spontaneously modeled for Liliana while taking a break from restoring a 1984 Goldwing.

I actually like this version a LOT better. The other one makes her seem garish and oversells the magic side of her nature.

This is the best artwork of her. Is there actually a "Snuff Out" with this version of her? If not, Wizards of the Coast has gone insane.

I almost died laughing when I read "Now, how many of us would still lay there smiling, although maybe a few scoots further away, if she were eating kittens in bed? Hands?" because I have a kitten named Liliana Vess.
This is an absolutely beautiful piece. <3

I've spent the past two minutes tabbing between this version and the Card version trying to decide which I like more!
The card version definitely sells the whole occult magic factor, but in this version with us able to see her eyes there's a totally different sort of creepiness to it. You made her gaze into a whole different kind of monstrous, no remorse, no hesitation, not even a hint of malice in her eyes, it's just another day at the office for her; and that is entirely too creepy for words to properly express.

*snort* eating kittens! LOL! I can actually picture that! AHAHAHA!!! I can see it all now, Jace perusing over a spiffy scroll and then slides ever so slowly to the edge of the bed as Lilliana is going NOM-NOM-NOM on a bowl full of kittens! AHAHA!!! Awesome art by the way, I have this card.
