Sensor Splicer by IzzyMedrano Sensor Splicer by IzzyMedrano
This one was extremely tough to pull off. They wanted to show the splicer doing his work, his victim, and what the end result would be. I don't think it worked out, but the final image is pretty creepy and unsettling, and I'm happy with those outcomes any time! <3

This is really cool! I've always been a sucker for white-and-red-plus-darkness, and biomechanical critters!
I'm not familiar enough with card games to figure out what this is, nevertheless I love the shiny plastic (porcelain?) look of their body and the blood-meat internal stuff. The black eyesockets and mouthless skull faceplate are also really cool, the being depicted is creepy as hell and the elongated head makes me think of xenomorphs, which pulls even more biomechanical and horror into it! The lens attached directly to their head via posts instead of on a string or strap or goggles is pretty cool too, love the way the light reflected from behind them into the cloth makes the lens red! The ribcage torso is a nice touch and goes well with the head, and the pinkie held up in the scalpel hand is kinda cool too, instead of all one fist, more of a 'delicate touch' look almost. The critter in the background is a pretty cool one too, although it's looking more like a suit of armor and less like an animate horror. The lack of glow and straight posture makes me think of suits or something on a wall, waiting for someone to put them on or displayed to show craftsmanship. And the hand in the foreground is nicely jointed, I like how you separated the kuckle and first bone shape with color, and the little subdivisions in them. Back to the surgeon, the way his faceplate is designed he seems expressionless yet... Pleased? His posture and the gleam of his eyes makes me think he's pretty focused on the task at hand.
All in all, great work!

Esta genial! tiene una ambiguedad interesante porque siento que da dos impresiones; la que son una especia de robots o androides y la de que están hechos de carne y hueso. =)

how uniquely intriguing
olbertus Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2013
Oh this one "worked out" completely the lighting and residual glow are astounding and the detail of the extended pinky is a great touch that implies so much about the character.

Great piece!

Very impressive. I kinda wish the splicer was more visible, but this is excellent.

Is there any way I could get this as a full scale print? This is too amazing not to enjoy in my home.
IzzyMedrano Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012  Professional Artist
Absolutely. I'll be selling some larger copies of this at the CTN Expo in Burbank this weekend.

I hadn't really noticed on the card itself, because the canvas is so small, but blown up as an image here, I can see all the details you put into it, it's a great job =) I like the way the splicer is holding his tool and the eye-piece thingy he is wearing.

I was wondering btw, how does one actually get a job doing art for magic? I've always wanted to try once I got better with my art!

is it strange i find this guy oddly cute?
TENKHAI Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2012
Love it ! Love the details of the cyborg armor on the splicer. Those thin bands like tape around the neck and right under the shoulder. It makes it look sophisticated and a bit broken/mended up at the time... in a word : real^^
