Guess my true geek is coming out now. Although I never was an avid player of the Magic: The Gathering card game, it was the card-art which drew my attention. I would spend hours attempting to recreate some of the images and even attempt to make my own card designs. So here are some of the MTG artists whom I particularly like:
