In lieu of sleeping, I instead prepped for my next project, inspired by a suggestion from Chad at FNM this evening. As a side note, I’m discovering that cards that are pre-M12 were printed differently. Normally in prep I can fade the printed ink, but with older cards it comes off all at once versus gradually (note the middle two Shards of Alara cards). Also, it’s easier to feel the difference between cleared and not-cleared space on the older cards. True, this makes little to no difference once they’re painted, but I think it’s interesting nonetheless.
From left to right, the original artists and sets are:
Robh Ruppel - M13
Aleksi Briclot - Shards of Alara
Aleksi Briclot - Shards of Alara
James Paick - Innistrad
