Ok, I need to enlist the help of my fans! I received a commission for bella from twilight on a lilianna recently. I've never actually *seen* the movie. Google search revels absolutely no nice shots of her. Does she EVER wear anything other than a t-shirt?? I'm looking for an outfit that will make her look beautiful AND recognizable. I could really use some help!!

A few people have been asking about using card alters in tournaments, I just wanted to clear things up for anyone who might want to know!

The rule regarding modifications to cards is as follows (Universal Tournament Rules, Section 28):

"Cards used in a tournament may not have writing on their faces other than signatures or artistic modifications. Modifications may not obscure the artwork so as to make the card unrecognizable. If modifications to a card are deemed by the Head Judge to constitute outside notes or unsporting conduct, the player using such cards will be subject to the appropriate provisions of the DCI Penalty Guidelines."

So basically, artistically modified cards are fine for tournament use under the DCI Tournament rules as long as the card is clearly recognizable and can't be picked out of a sleeved deck.  The head judge of any tournament has the final say (and we recommend you clear things with your local judge before you play with your altered cards) but all of our cards are painted with tournament legality in mind!
By popular demand, we have opened the Black Wing MTG art mod studio to the masses!

For those of you who don't know us already, we do custom commission Magic: the Gathering card alters.  Most of our alters are done with acrylic paint and ink, though occasionally a few other mediums pop up.

Please have a look around our gallery and then contact us with your commission requests!  We can do any card to your specifications, or we can work with you to create some great designs.  Most of our modifications only cost between $10-20 per card, depending on the alter.  

Please feel free to drop us a note with any questions or commission requests!

Thanks again to all of our supporters for making us the top card art studio on the web!
