Today I have the great pleasure of introducing to the community an exceptional Sorcery: Contested Realm TCG Alpha artist, Marta Molina!
Marta is one of three artists who earned broad recognition for her artistic talents in the genre of Magic the Gathering card alters (the other two artist commissioned for Sorcery are Elvira Shakirova and Caio Calazans). She has a vast portfolio of alter cards, and a large fan base all over the world. This is one of her breakthrough opportunities in full size traditional painting for a Trading Card Game (TCG).
Thank you so much for this opportunity, Marta...
Mike @ Collector Arthouse: For those who don’t know of your work, tell us a bit about your background. Where are you from?
Marta Molina: I was born and raised in Madrid, Spain. I have lived in different cities in Spain until I came to live in a village near Madrid.
Mike @ Collector Arthouse: How did you get into artwork as a professional career? How did you get into MTG card alters? Have you done work beyond MTG alters before, and is this your first full art paintings commissions outside of card artwork?
Marta Molina: I come from a family of artists and that made it clear to me that I wanted to dedicate myself to art as a profession. Before devoting myself to alterations, I made reproductions of Byzantine and Renaissance works... and I also worked with silver. Then, by chance I came to this world and since then I haven't stopped. Although this is my first time in an illustration commission.
