I have free 3d artwork at my site http://mtg3dfree.end-day.net.

You might want to add that you have to have permission if using art from sites like deviantART, Epilogue, etc... as those are sites where professional (and hobby) artists post to.

Sorry to have spent so much time away, but I brought something back with me.

If you go to Google Image Search and type in "site:www.wizards.com/magic/ art," and select "Medium images," you will be treated to a wonderful tour of card art that has been featured on MagictheGathering.com. Great for tokens!

Also, if you select "Large images," you will be treated to a tour of past wallpapers.

That thread was taken down. The reason? Artists who were in it complained about people using their art without credit and/or permission.

I don't know if these would be as welcome as galleries of art, but it might also be worth listing some tools to make your own art. I have used and recommend:

-Terragen, a freeware landscape generator, could work perfectly if you needed a bunch of landscapes, but also for the backgrounds of cards. Runs under windows and mac, also, works well in wine (so far).

-GIMP, the GNU Image Manipulation Program, is an powerful (open-source) image editor. I use it to compose images from multiple sources and to touch up images, but it also has reasonably good tools for starting from scratch (IFS, basic shapes, etc). GIMP for Windows is available here and for Macintosh here.

-Inkscape, a powerful (open-source) vector image editor. Although I'm very fond of it now, if can be hard to get used to, I recommend this tutorial and this manual to learn.

A warning though, these programs were all created for different styles of art than people generally associate with magic, so the art may not "work" or "fit" for you. I recommend trying them anyway, you may discover you like them.

I'm sure that many people have seen these before, but they could be worth listing, particularly terragen. Examples of terragen output (which may be considered galleries in their own right), are listed here.

I am concerned however, that if I composite images from multiple sources (and obviously only if the license allows it), there's barely enough room to credit them properly. Is there a way to store card metadata, such as comments or extra credits?

[edit]: I apologize, the terragen galleries I linked to are mostly gone since the last time I looked, but I'll leave the link because some of it's still there, and the Internet Archive might have some more.

If the tools are under the right liscense and you created the content the artist credits go to you AFAIK, so that shouldn't be an issue.

While not exactly sure what you mean by "card metadata", but there is a "Notes" field associated with every card, always visible in the editor.

Thanks, I just didn't remember; I haven't used the program in a few years and I haven't got it to work again yet. But that should be fine then.

The Anycraze card creator went back up, and it's got about a thousand lower quality images on it. It doesn't have artists, but it's pretty good.

This is not necessarily the right place, but you could start by searching the list of sites at the beginning of this thread. Also, I believe Wikipedia actually has images from the comics of the majority of Marvel/DC Superheroes, if that is what you're thinking.

One source that can be a great help in making humanoid creatures is HeroMachine. Using the easy color selectors, part selectors, and image editors, you can make a quality piece of creature art in minutes. Currently, 3 versions export to a JPEG file, and a fourth can also handle PNGs.
Note: The last three links are to functions hosted on UGO.com. Some sections of that site may be NSFW, but the HeroMachines don't have any such conteent on them.

HeroMachine 3 - Great at creating any character. This is the version that can export to PNG.
Modern Day Warrior Creator - Better at creating modern or futuristic characters. This version, as well as Lordi and Zombie, do NOT include backgrounds you can edit.
Lordi HeroMachine - Better at making fantasy characters, but some more modern elements are available.
Zombie Creator - What do YOU think this is good for?!?!?

Anyone have good sources for Eldrazi-esque creatures (Cthuluhu inspired maybe?) and/or Gideon Jura fan art?

I don't have a gallery of stuff that would be suitable for magic cards, if that's what you mean. I've got a site with some of my designs and such on it, but it's not really a good place to get card art. So much so that it's not worth spamming y'all with the link.

I've been playing around with new software for digital painting (To get a more Magic-ish look to the cards), and my roommate has been distracting me, which is why the bricklayer isn't here yet, but it is in the process of being made. Sketches are done. If I can't get the software working right/can't get good enough to my satisfaction in it, I'll just do a less Magic-ish look.
