The Price of Fame.

Nyanko arrives in a town where another Wizard is drawing too much attention.. and if you want that much recognition, you must be prepared for the consequences… Using a little fraction of her power, Nyanko will check if the newcomer rival is worth of her time.

“So you think you’re the greatest Wizard around here? Let’s see how you will handle THIS!!”

The main goal of any Wizard is to have their power acknowledged throughout the realms and they hate when another one starts to show off. Nyanko definitely didn’t like to watch someone else walking around one of “her” towns talking nonsense about being the most powerful spellcaster that ever existed… The concept for this Chain was to focus a Wizard with a higher amount of Influence, so we thought on this idea to represent it as a card!

On the art, Nyanko is at the first layer, chaining a spell and transforming it into a pink missile of pure evil magic at another unwarned Wizard in the middle of a crowd in the second layer. The green sky contrast with the pink spell and light and also match with some green details of Nyanko’s clothing.

Traditional Giant Fireball.

Some Wizards use their knowledge to expand their Influence, some Wizards play heavy metal music to giant audiences, other Wizards just randomly drop giant fireballs from the sky upon unsuspecting targets in hopes to be noticed. It works wonders, but only when there are survivors left…

“Look! A falling star, make a wish!”

As we said earlier, Wizards want to be recognized by their powers, and the use of powerful spells is the most common method. Sometimes though, Wizards may use too much power and end up exaggerating… This card represents one of those moments, when a simple display of power can be so impressive that it can destroy lands and cities!!

We wanted to demonstrate a giant fireball about to destroy a small town. We chose a point where the viewer would watch the calamity from a higher ground on the first layer, whilst the city is right at the middle of all the layers and, unfortunately, the action. To contrast with the lights from the magic, we chose to set the scene at night, turning it into a more interesting composition.

We hope that you like the spells arts and the reasoning behind them to be this way. Stay tuned for the next week spotlights!arts and the reasoning behind them to be this way. Stay tuned for the next week spotlights!
