A new piece for StarCityGames.com revealed today! Force of Squirrel. :)
This time, I got to pay homage to the incredible Terese Nielsen. She’s one of my very favorite Magic artists, and I also had the pleasure of meeting her at GP Charlotte, making this an extra personal assignment for me. (I hope I did you proud and make you smile, Terese!)
It was also great as a technical exercise. It was very important that I get the lighting/values right, and because of the nature of the piece I spent a lot of time really studying the light and form on Force of Will. I took away a lot from that.
(And just like Terese was her own model for Force of Will, I modeled my squirrel’s excellent physique myself. ;) )
I love days when I can release client work!
The Creature Collection for StarCityGames.com is back, and first with PANDAS! Yep, had to draw pandas for my job. Pretty ok with that.
Although to be honest with you, the part of this that I love the most is the vegetation on the left. Artists! We’re weird!
Can we find a link to all of the illustrations you did for SCG? I can't seem to find them on their website.
Do you mean the other parody ones? This is the only one that’s been released so far, but more in good time. :)
If you mean in general, most of them are on the Creature Collection page: http://www.starcitygames.com/pages/creaturecollection/
Another piece for SCG got released a few days ago! :) They tasked me with creating a few illustrations parodying various iconic Magic cards. This one is a riff on Brainstorm.
See, I’m not dead!
I’ve also done a few playmats lately, but they’re Christmas things so I can’t post them until they’re given to their recipients. Are YOU getting a sweet Custom Liz Nugent Playmat for Christmas? MAYBE YOU ARE!
Here’s a playmat I finished up today! This was a really personal one for the client and I’m really touched that I got to be involved. :) One of the perks of the job!
As always, if you’re interested in a custom playmat, just shoot an email to nugent.liz @ gmail.com!

I got interviewed on a podcast! It’s called Across the Table. It’s primarily a Magic: The Gathering related podcast but in my interview I talk about art, my process, growing up, nerdery, etc. I am actually afraid to listen to it because I might die of being self-conscious, but if you want to hear me talk about things, give it a listen!
