artist trading cards, fall 2018 edition

Recommended Posts

Any interest in a new round of trading cards? 

 

What is an artist trading card (ATC)? 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artist_trading_cards

 

Artist trading cards (ATCs) are miniature pieces of art that are traded around the world. Artists create, trade and collect art at organized "swap" events, either in person or online. The only official rule for ATCs is the size: 2.5" x 3.5". Most swaps are open to any media, materials or techniques as long as the card fits into a standard trading card sleeve.

If I can get 6 or more people I will set up a round of 1-1 trades for forum members. Post here or PM me if you'd like to participate.  I am thinking of an Oct 1 start date and Dec 1 due (in the mail) date.

What sort of time constraint? If I could casually work on something and announce when it is ready for those interested, that would be better for me than a big formalized trade event.

60 **days, or so.  (If you wait until the official start date. Otherwise now until Dec 1., almost 75 days.)

 

**One day per square centimeter, roughly. A card is 56 square centimeters (10x10mm boxes) and change. 

 

No constraints on subject, media, style, or technique.

I’m trying to decide if I want to do this... I wanted to do the last one (but missed it) but I’ve been so dang sleepy lately. How many cards would I have to make?

Just one card. 

 

Remember, this is informal, this is supposed to be fun. You don't have to be a professional artist or an art student. If you think you can sketch or draw (or paint, or block print, or collage) something onto a 2.5x3.5 card, you are welcome.

I have never done one of these, but would love more excuses to make more 2d art. I'm in if no one minds me experimenting with media and color.

      So there's a thing called Inktober/Drawlloween that @Pingo reminded me about, where you draw/paint/sketch/art a thing every day during October. There's the "official" list of daily prompts...
       

       
      and this other one that Pingo found that I think is cooler.

       

       
      So who else is up for the challenge?

      So, I'm working on a miniature for my Box of Many Things exchange partner, more commonly known as a "Thinger" among those long time participants. This happens on the Twitters and you can search for it by sticking one those hashtag/pound sign/number sign thingies in front of BoxofManyThings in the search thingy there. Basically, it is like a Secret Santa type thing for geeks and nerds that happens every couple months. Sign ups for the next one should start near the end of October, if you are interested.
       
      Anywho, my "Thinger" is interested in, among other things, Medusas. So, since I'm kind of not up to much due to a severe lack of AC at my place, I've decided to try to distract myself from the fact I am alternating between melting and immolating at this time by making a custom mini and painting it. Also, attempt to chronicle it too.

      My exchange partner this year was Fealron and one of the ideas suggested was a new enemy or villain to throw against his players.  I had this guy on hand and wondered if a giant werewolf would fit the bill: 
       
      14030: Vasyl, Rageclaw Alpha 


       
      While I was painting that I came across these guys and they just begged to be henchmen: 
       

      The one in the middle I believe is an old Grenadier, the others are clix. 
       
      Meanwhile, back at the ranch I did a little digging and discovered that Fealron has a set of DwarvenForge, so I felt compelled to paint these as a gift.  It's all molded from Hirst Arts molds (except the barrel mimic).  I hope they provide hours of fun play.

      My partner this time around was Clearman.  He requested a heroic character painted heroically, and nothing says heroic quite like the word "Hellknight."  Of course, I haven't actually played the adventure(s) that Pathfinder Hellknights appear in so maybe they are cuddly people.  We'll say she just finished up a heroic day of undead slaying.
       
      Metals are TMM, which my camera hates, but I think I managed to get a few decent shots.  For something different I painted the base using pigments rather than hobby paints. I used the wet method of applying them and the color shift is huge, so I wasn't sure how they would come out until they dried.  Of course you can be intentionally sloppy because any pigments on the mini's boots just help "tie the figure to its base." I freehanded some wood grain onto the shaft of the weapon just to add some interest to the boring space.
