MtG - Secret Base

This is another card I made for MtG: Unstable. This was the first card I made, and as you can see from the sketches it took a few iterations to hit the read that was needed. This one was a little tricky since it is a “Land” type card, but the land in this case is this giant mobile mechanical castle! It needed to read as massive and take up most of the frame to be seen as the focal locale, but also not be framed too close as to obscure the nature of the machine.
A super huge thanks again to Wizards, this was a very fun project!

This third round was needed to reboot things the direction and show more of the base's "ground" surface.
