Magic the Gathering: Alters

What is it?

Magic the Gathering is a collectible trading card game where you play against opponents using cards that have things such as monsters, spells, and artifacts.

I started playing probably back in 1994 during summer camp. I recently decided to get back into it and picked up some new cards. While playing at a local card shop, I saw some cards that had custom art that was painted directly onto the cards. I decided to give it a shot myself and bought some acrylic paint and brushes.
