Altered card - Mind over matter by JohannesVIII Altered card - Mind over matter by JohannesVIII
An altered Magic: the Gathering card.
Original card here [link]

Fanart: I completely removed the original illustration and painted something else.

For some reason the previous owner of this card decided it was missing a giant bazooka drawn with a black marker.
So I decided to erase the whole picture and paint something completely different. And I wanted a Portal-related altered card anyway.

Acrylic and poscas.
The four logos were printed on a paper, then cut out and glued on the card.

Portal (c) VALVe

I think I've asked you this before, and if so I apologize for asking it again, but how exactly do you erase the picture of a Magic card without significantly damaging it?

I ask again because this is so beautiful as to make me want to make some of my own. You've really outdone yourself this time!

So once the original picture is erased, will any type of artistic tools work? I think all I own are the crayons and markers I used as a kid-- I never graduated beyond Crayola :(

A lot of things work - chinese ink, acrylics, pens, felt-tip pens, markers... even pencils if you erased it cleanly.

Wow, this really looks epic! I think it fits the overall concept of the card better than the original picture did. Great job!

Thank you :hug:
I wanted to put a Glados quote on it but the logos look kinda better.

Wow, this is totally amazing. Just... damn. :D
You could have carbon transferred the little square images, though? How come you didn't?

Aww, really? Hrmmm...
Well, regardless, it's an EDH card anyhow. Don't gotta worry about tourney playable.
It's super super pretty, you did an amazing job.

I have a Korean Mind Over Matter and haven't been able to bring myself to paint on it. haha
