Onyx Mage - MTG  Unused variant by IzzyMedrano Onyx Mage - MTG  Unused variant by IzzyMedrano
The unused version of the Onyx Mage for MTG. If I remember correctly, the self mutilation was a little too much for the universe.

funny, because they talk about mutilating all the time in the lore. Scooping out someone's corneas to use like crystal ball contact lenses for one...

Right, but that's not self mutilation.  Lol... so... different? *shrug*

I really like this piece. Guessing that the card was in the Core Set, they probably wanted to limit graphic content to not shock new players. Now, put this guy in the Shard of Alara Block, and he'd be at home in Jund. Maybe Grixis, though he's a little too healthy looking to be from there. Great pose, and I can almost imaging the power hungry, angry yell while he carves his body up for payment.

First of all, I love this version, it would make for a killer promo. 2nd, I'm curious as to how the commissioning worked out on this one. Did they pay you for both versions? Did they suggest they try a different artist? If these questions are too personal feel free to ignore them. Lovely work!

I got the pitch to do the mage cycle and in excitement I took this guy to finish before sending in the sketch.  It was my bad.  They paid me only for the card they used.

Thanks for the reply! That's cool to hear you were so into the project, I could see myself doing something like that as well once I start working on Magic. Still, 2 great pieces came out of it :)
