I would like to know, how are artists like you asked by Wizard of the Coast to draw the illustrations? Are you given themes (like the generic appearance of a race in a given extension) or do all of you decide the themes together?
Hey sorry I didn't get to answer you question. They usually give me a description of the scene, and the tone or mood that they want and what is in the scene.. Then I come up with the composition and design of the characters and costumes but they should meet the requirements of the style guide. Sometimes though they also just say its a blue card and there is a mage doing a spell.. and that's it .. lol
