Icarus the Seer by BenWootten Icarus the Seer by BenWootten
This is a piece that was done for the TCG Mystic Warlords of Ka'a, the spin off game from the Big Bang Thoery. This the TCG that Will Wheaton is constantly beating them at. The game has been designed to capture the parody like quality it has in the series and the flavor of the character from the show play use the different factions featured in the game. Hence the game has a humourous undertone to it. I think that comes through in some of the artwork. I have really enjoyed working with Derek Herring and Roger Chamberlain at Dire wolf Digital on this Game.

Agreed. There were some pretty cool factions to work with in there. Can't say I ever got to work with the Wind Riders though. I envy you for that, sir.

A hawkman called Icarus, that's beyond amazing reference... I'm somehow sad no one else will be able to use that kind of motif without copyrights, but it's just my way of saying "great job, bro". So, what is this guy's story?

:iconbenwootten:
BenWootten Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks dude!! I have no idea what his story is, he was described briefly for a piece of card art for the Mystic Warlords of Ka'a game based off the game played in the Big Bang theory. No back story or the like was mentioned.

I like the idea, but I'm not really sure I like the game mechanic of the card game he's placed into. Based on what I saw, it looks more like some kind of fancy game of remi (regarding the state when all players put their cards on a pile, then the winner collects them all, meaning no player posseses a real deck)

You mention that this piece is supposed to be humorous, but I don't see it...

Is it that the legendarily short-sighted Icarus is the name for a 'Seer'? Is it that they bird is flying blind with a pair of knives?

Not this illustration in particular, but the game as a whole has a humorous tone, to reflect the show it was born in. I am not usre of the sigficance of the name or design of this card, I was only given a visual description for a brief, no backstory of insight.

Thanks for the reply! I am grateful for your time.

But you said the humor comes out in the art. If it's not in this piece where is it, specifically?

I used the same caption in al lthe art for this game that I posted, I have changed the wording so it says " some of the art work", but perhaps not this piece specifically
