MtG - Spara's Headquarters

With this landcycle I had a special plan. It was probably one of the greates and most fun experiences in my career.
The brief for those was to show the doors to all the five family hideouts of New Capenna.
My idea was to show not literally what is inside the hideout, but more what the feeling of beeing part of this family would look like as a art deco fresco.
So all of these show signiture elements of their territory as well as their special interests.
The door it self is also very prominent - the center of all those images.
We see a differently shaped stylized door in all of those. All are slightly open and we see a stripe of bright light coming out of it. This light shows the different colors the family stands for and what the card can produce.

A small detail: we see a tiny figure at the bottom of the card. (behind the text block)
This figure stands for all potential new members of the families.
It is YOU joining them.
It is YOU getting into their business and
it is YOU who is probably overwhelmned by what awaits you behind those doors.
Are you ready to decide?
