Hi all,
I was just wondering where you'd go about getting images for cards you create. I have over a hundred cards made but no images to suit them. I don't want just some random picture to fit it, I want something like you'd actually see on a magic card but I have not the means or knowledge on how to make such art.

Check out the card showcase; the third stickied thread is all about different websites for art. And just my personal preference, you can always check out deviantart.com

I actually did check deviantart.com before posting. Is there a way to filter our stuff because most of it is the kind of stuff that I wouldn't use for any card. Or is the a certian search criteria that you use? I'll check that other thread now.

It depends what you are after; I've had quite a problem trying to find a "Draconum" of half-dragon kind of picture. But if there is a certain thing you are after, just search for a couple similar items and go through the first couple pages. Normall, you can find something that will work sooner or later....

Draconum? Half-dragon half-what? I ask because I have two half-dragon/half-human images.

Draconum are a specific type of 'half-dragon' kind of creature from a game called Mage Knight; well, they're technically a completely seperate race, but they look kind of like a half dragon from Dungeons and Dragons. Anyway, I had a hell of a time finding anything resembling a dragonoid (humanoid dragon, with wings anyway)

I've got seven humanoid dragons in my set, The Taint. Six are by Jason Engle. The last is by Ursula Vernon. Looking at Engle's page, I found a few right away. Vernon's is a little more decorative, and she has a few sites, so I've no idea where to find the one from her again. You may not even want it since its markedly different.

Thanks for the recommendations; I forgot where I had seen those (in your set!)

At Anycraze.com, under Create a Card, they have hundreds of images made for magic cards you can use.

i thought anycraze shut down their create a card thing, due to legal reasons.

What do you think you've found?
Here, in this dying world.
Why do you build,
knowing destruction is inevitable?
and why do you yearn life,
knowing all things must die?
