The Japanese Artists Behind the Variant Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty Cards

It looks like Japanese artwork is getting rather popular! With Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty, many of the cards will be released with an alternate art version, and this time, the cards are in English. The artists, of course, are mostly known for their work on Japanese titles, so let’s take a look at them (ukiyo-e lands included, of course)!

If possible, the links will lead to the artists’ Pixiv or Twitter accounts. If they do not have one or a link cannot be found, their personal website will be linked instead. I’m sorry about any artists that I couldn’t locate, but I’ll edit them in if I find them. All images are copyright Wizards of the Coast.
