Presented in alphabetical order
Title: Festering Squee
Description: One of Squee's most famous traits is his immortality. For this Altered Reality Challenge, I decided to reimagine his immortality being a result of zombification instead of Phyrexian magic. Since I don't alter using paints, I had to find a different way to zombify Squee that fit my alteration style, hence: 3D Festering Squee!
Title: this card bites
Description: First real alter attempt.
Title: Momir, Cytoplast Reanimated
Description: The front side of Momir has not been modified much, it seems. Wait, the what? In fact, this general now has a sun symbol and... a transform condition?
Yes, Momir Vig has been completely transformed -- both artistically and mechanically -- into a zombie. In this timeline, when Agrus Kos killed everyone's favorite Elf Wizard, he did not go quietly. Now he is chained to unlife by the same cytoplasts he spent his life's work creating. And, considering the amount of time it took to painstakingly recreate the Magic card face on the back of a non-double-faced card, it might as well be my life's work, too. The medium is acrylic and Copic Multi-liners. I hope you enjoy it!
Title: Axelrod the Werewolf
Description: I was inspired by the full moon in the background and decided to make Axelrod into a werewolf. I tried and match the feel of the art, keeping with the shades of blues and purples.
Title: Mirri the Cursed
Title: Dakkon Bloodblade
Description: Attached is my Vampire version of Dakkon Blackblade titled "Dakkon Bloodblade" - My favorite legend! I take alter commissions, but can only send in France or neighbour countries.
Title: Blood Before Blood
Description: Many noble fighters have been corrupted during the long, dark Innistrad nights. On one such night, under the ominous shine of a full Innistrad moon, the corruption caught up with the mirror-master Riku, a peaceful wizard whose wisdom, passion for spellcraft and the study of life had brought him to the unwanted attention of evil. Olivia Voldaren watched with cruel pleasure as Riku's skin lost color, his eyes reopened with a sinister yellow glow and the fangs extended from his pale mouth. Belatedly sensing his sibling's distress, Riku's reflection flew to his brother's rescue, only to be slain by his own creator...
Title: The Mimomonster
Description: An attempt to make the Mimeoplasm all 3 creature types, as suggested by Drew Sitte on twitter.
Title: Zombie Jhoira of the Ghitu
Description: She likes brains!
Title: Wort, Zombie Auntie
Description: This is a 3d alter of Wort that uses only a single copy of Wort. In order to meet the zombified requirement, art was taken from Blackcleave Goblins, Toxic Nim, and a Shards of Alara Swamp (#241). To add to the zombie theme, all filler cards are also zombies (Which doesn't really matter, but it's the thought that counts right?). In addition, to go with the commander theme, all cards used are singletons, e.g. all filler cards are different cards.
