Hello, my name is Martin Schwesinger. I am an astrophysicist living in Freiburg, Germany. Antaresdesigns is a conglomerate of all the creative projects I have authored over the past years. These include set designs for Magic: The Gathering, my own trading card game concept “Conquest of Orion”, as well as my oil paintings.
Are you here primarily for MTG Content? You should check out my Overworld set, my latest MTG custom set. It is a naval-themed set with pirates and sea monsters. How is that not awesome?
I am currently working on Conquest of Orion, a space-fantasy trading card game. The game features a combat system that’s a hybrid between Magic: The Gathering and Hearthstone. You should check it out!
I’m also learning the art of oil painting. I hope to release a lot more space-paintings, portraits, landscape paintings, and fan art pieces in the future. In the Traditional Art gallery, you can find my earlier work.
If you’re a fan of DotA or League of Legends, check out my Warcraft III custom map Darkening of Tirisfal that I created back in 2010.
Use of Art
The Conquest of Orion game, as well as the Magic: The Gathering sets, include artworks that are not my own. I do not claim any copyright of these artworks. The artworks were taken from community sites such as deviantart.com and have all been credited to the original artist. As no financial gain is derived from the use of these artworks, and their state is transformative enough, their display should warrant fair use.
Due to the number of artworks used for the cards shown here, mistakes are bound to happen and some artworks will be credited wrongly. I have no desire to offend or infringe upon the rights of any artist. In fact, if I’m using your art it’s because I admire your work. If I made a mistake, contact me and I will remove the artwork in question.
