Breakdown: Modern Horizons

Mind Rake has to be one of my favorite pieces of art from Modern Horizons. A figure on the ground in pain and radiating from him or, depending on how you read it, towards him are tears in space, like ripped paper, showing another space where a wizard also seems to be in pain. The use of warm and cool colors serve to divide the two spaces and figures. Notice the way the upright wizard is shaded with very reddish colors, matching the very intense reds of the space he’s in. The wizard that is prone is wearing more cooler colors, like blue and green, to match the space that he is in.
