Seb McKinnon is one of the best Magic: The Gathering artists, and his recent artworks he did for Wizards of the Coast's trading card game look amazing. Now, McKinnon's art for "Soulherder", which the Canadian artist illustrated for the Modern Horizons set, is becoming a meme on Reddit and Twitter as Magic fans are creating their own versions of the fantastic artwork.
Here's the original card just in case you haven't seen it:
One Redditor created a charcoal version of Soulherder and another showed an image of a bloodspray in the form of the blue/white spirit creature. There's also a stickman version and someone made themselves become somwhat like the Soulherder itself. Others have created sillier versions of the meme-ified MTG art. Check out what fans posted on Reddit:
Got a really bad papercut on my thumb and it sprayed blood on my papers. Kinda looks like Seb Mckinnon's Soul Herder! from r/magicthecirclejerking
Here's my take on Seb McKinnon's Soulherder. Please don't be too hard on me, I don't have a GF to draw for me. from r/magicthecirclejerking
On Twitter, someone illustrated Soulherder using Microsoft Excel and it looks pretty abstract.
Now I'm wondering if Seb McKinnon has seen these ridiculous pieces. The legendary artist recently illustrated art for the new fairy tale-themed set Throne of Eldraine, including the wonderful promotional art and the art for the Showcase version of "Order of Midnight".
