Altered Magic cards

Hey guys, pretty sure this is where I post this..?

On a popular auction site (yes, that auction site... can't say the name I believe), if you type in "mtg altered" for a search, it will come up with cards that are being altered with paints, to either look borderless, or completely custom altogether.

It's been getting more popular (a recent slump lately), and I thought you guys in this forum would appreciate the work being done. Some of them are VERY good. There is also a good thread in MTGS's Artwork forum, which is getting pretty huge, that shows a ton of work from different artists.

Some examples (from "that" site) attached.

Peace, Mike
There's a whole thread posting these on a certain MTG fansite. (not sure what the policy is on that sort of thing, so let's be safe) I love the Jaya Ballard mana leak. Expanding the art of a card onto everything not carrying text is apparently the new 3-D-ing.
These are really nice, and I wish I had the talent to do this
Here are some from DeviantArt.com, all of these altered cards are really amazing. To those who make art alteration, Good work and thanks for the altered art!!!

ENJOY!!!!!

Feel free to visit these artist websites.

I like that Stay-Puf Darksteel Colossus...
They say that life's a carousel, spinning fast you've got to ride it well, the world is full of kings and queens, who blind your eyes and steal your dreams, it's heaven and hell, oh well!
i want every single one of those force of wills.
I would have such a hard time taking an eraser to Damnation ...
Or seeing Forces altered.
I have a bunch of artist signatures, but no modifications.
At any rate, I probably wouldn't get an expensive card signed, but probably a lower-value card (in terms of gameplay), but despite that has artwork I appreciate. [There are a lot of cards without insane gameplay/collector value, that still have vey nice art...and those are the ones that I'm more likely to have spare. ]

All of those very neat, I love the damnation extension.
Hi all!! I am new to this thread I just wanted to put a few alters for myself and my artist friend Georgi. I hope you like them. All are on "The Auction Site" now.

Hi, I'm Georgi. I'm new to this forum. I'd like to give my friend, Lupe Woody, a huge thank you for posting up some of my altered mtg cards. We hope you enjoy the altered cards that we do. Thanks!
Altered cards are always great. Love your surging flame, and Spike in the swamp.
The Serra Avatar made me smile.
I've done a few, here's the two I have pics of.

Plains Altered with Vash the Stampede
from Trigun By: Georgi. I love the intentional comic style of this card. It reminds me of some of Frank Millers works.

Killing a Sunday

Thank you, Japoniano! I really appreciate the compliment!
Also, thanks (I think) to White Phantom - I hope that it makes you smile in a good way.

I understand some of the art. Don't get me wrong, I like the art that you guys have done. But I don't understand the crossover between lands and other shows.

I like the Lava Axe, both Birds (though I think that the second one with the lady, the "wings" should have covered the original birds fully), Hurkyl's Recall, and the rest of them. I especially like the Serra Avatar one. That was a great crossover. Avatar Aang and Serra Avatar, I get the connection.

Maybe I'm just confused. But either way, keep up the good work.

I lol'd at the Good Doctor.

Same with Phoenix.

Although I don't have a picture of it, an acquaintance of mine altered a Turnabout to showcase Phoenix Wright, shouting "Objection!"

...ya know, because the name of the series in Japan is "Turnabout Court." Totally Sweet.
