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.

      Welcome to the 2020 Summer Miniature Exchange! 
       
      This is the thread where I'll post announcements, and you can post questions, let people know that packages have be mailed or received, or just talk, get suggestions, and show off the awesome mini that your partner sent you.
       
      If you've never done an exchange before, how it works is like this: Everyone who is interested PMs me with the questionnaire below filled out (please don't just send an old one, as the questions may have changed). I then match you with a person whom you will paint a mini for, and a second person whom you will receive a painted mini from (sometimes it's the same person). You have until the deadline to send your mini out (please try really hard to do this, though we understand if sometime life gets in the way). That's pretty much it, feel free to PM me with questions.
       
      This exchange is based on trust and is open to painters of all skill levels. Please be respectful of the fact that someone else is investing their time, money, and energy into painting a mini for you.  I am simply the organizer, but I will do everything I can to make sure that everyone who paints a miniature receives one.
       
      The Rules (tl;dr version)
      Fill out the questionnaire below and send it to me via PM by end of day, June 12th. Painters must acknowledge their assignment message and/or post or message me that they have selected their miniature by June 30th. Painters must post a WIP of their mini by August 1st. Paint your partner a mini and mail it to them by September 30th.  
      Full Rules
      Fill out the questionnaire below and send it to me via PM.  Please fill out the current version of the questionnaire. Please don't just send an old one, as questions may have changed. Please don't contact your partner unless they have listed themselves as okay with contact. I've included it on the questionnaire, so you'll know who wants to keep it secret and who doesn't. You will need to acknowledge your assignment message and/or post or message me that you have selected a miniature by June 30th. Basically, if I do not hear anything from you once the assignments go out, you will be dropped, and your recipient will be reassigned. I really do not want to do this but there have been too many instances in the past of radio silence once assignments go out. In order to encourage people to start painting early, you will need to post a Work In Progress (WIP) image of your mini under a spoiler tag to this thread by August 1st. The mini should be at least base-coated by this time.  If you don't post a WIP by this point, I may have to drop you from the exchange.  Please don't make me do this. Try really hard to get your miniature out by the deadline.  Let an organizer know if you are going to be late. Please post in this thread once you have received your miniature from your partner. We all love seeing what everyone did and it serves as an acknowledgement that you received it. If you are mailing internationally and plan to send more than just miniatures/paint, you must contact your recipient to get any "bonus items" approved.  We don't want any trouble with customs.  As an example, plant matter or powders can cause a lot of trouble. Also, only the purchase price of the figure should be listed under "value" on the customs form.  No extra value should be added for your paint job, etc.  the purpose of the package should be "gift". Reaper minis are the focus. If you want to paint more than one miniature, you may do so. If you wish to include other gifts for your recipient, you may do so, but please keep them small. There is no hard and fast rule but keeping the value less than the price of a single miniature is a good rule of thumb. The focus of the exchange should be a Reaper product. The organizer (SGHawkins09) can help facilitate any anonymous conversations you want to have with your partner. Have fun!  
      Deadline
      The deadline to mail out miniatures for this exchange will be a little over 3 months from when assignments are sent out, on September 30th.
       
      Assignments Deadline
      I will try to send out the assignments by June 15th.  Please let me know if you're interested by end of day, June 12th.  I can't make any guarantees if you're late, but I will try to make arrangements.
       
      Exchange Assistant
      I am running this by myself so please can contact me if you have any questions or issues.

      -Mailing Information-
      Name:       Forum_person
      Address:   1234 my street .
                        My town, My province or state
                        (Postal code) or (ZIP code)
                        My Country

      -Miniature Information: Outbound-
      What can you paint?  Fantasy PCs or monsters
      Examples: fantasy, sci-fi, monsters, PCs, women, undead, demons, etc
      What do you like painting the most? bugbears and orcs
      Notes: if possible, the organizers will try to match you up with someone who wants this thing, but if we can't we'll fall back to what you "can" paint

      -Miniature Information: Inbound-
      What do you want to receive?  Fantasy enemies for my players to fight!  Monsters or human(ish) are both fine.
      Examples: mouslings, necromancers, warriors, dual-wielders, etc

      Notes: Reaper miniatures come in Bones, resin and metal
      Do you have a particular color scheme in mind?  No preference.
      Notes: If you're asking for a miniature to be used in army, you can ask your partner to match the colors.
      What style of basing would you prefer? Plain or basic - I will use these miniatures in my PFRPG games.
      Examples: round or square preference? Unbased, plain base (simple black base), basic base (standard sized base with some scenic elements), or scenic base (fancy base not really suitable for gaming)
      Please give your partner some inspiration, especially if you have very few preferences above.
      I'm starting the PFRPG Adventure Path "Jade Regent" soon.  Try painting non-human skin tones.  My favorite color is blue. "Spring has sprung!"
      Notes: Consider this a non-binding word of inspiration for your partner.  If they're stuck and can't figure out what to paint, maybe this will help them.  No need to repeat your preferences above.  You partner may ignore this question if they already have an idea from the your previously answered questions.
      Examples: Are there any books or movies you've enjoyed recently?  Is there a challenge or technique you'd like your partner to try?  How about some song lyrics or a quote from a book?

      -Personal Information-
      Will you ship internationally? Yes
      Notes: Be aware that postage costs will be higher than domestic postage.  If you mail internationally, you will need permission from your partner to include other gift items so that we don't run afoul of customs.  Most participants in these exchanges are located in the USA.
      Would you be willing to have multiple exchange partners? Yes, I love painting!
      Notes: If yes, specify if there is a limit (though it is unlikely we'll ask you to do more than 2)
      Would you like to know who is painting for you? No
      Examples: Yes, No, No Preference
      Notes: If you say yes, your preference will be communicated to your partner.  It will be up to them to contact you.
      Would you like your partner to know who is painting for them? No
      Examples: Yes, No, No Preference
      Notes: You can contact them directly to work out details or ask for advice.  We will attempt to match people with similar preferences, but can't guarantee this is the case.
      Is there anybody you would prefer not to paint for?  (please include why)    I painted for johndoe123 in the last miniature exchange.
      Notes:  If you like to paint for a variety of different people, you can list those you've painted for in the past.  We will do our best to pair you with someone new.  Another situation is that you know certain people in real life, and would prefer to paint for someone you don't know.

      Hi!! my name is Katerina and I'm new to painting miniatures, I begun 
      with a miniature from NonSenseminiatures, the Barbarian, I buyed the 
      54mm because it's bigger and maybe easier to paint.
      I asked some help to NonSense and he already made a base coat for me, I 
      would like to get some help for painting because I see too much 
      information and don't know were begin.
      I already make painting but totally different
      Also he gave for me a discount code Katerina10%, because he will sell my 
      paints also!!!

      Story
      Hello, and welcome to the Foglio Portfolio!
      Kaja and Phil Foglio have illustrated 117 cards for Magic: The Gathering, with their first image included in Magic's very first expansion, Arabian Nights.  Here are all of the cards they've illustrated for the game.
      After being away from the game for many years, the Foglios are back to offer officially licensed Playmats and Prints of their most famous and popular Magic artwork.
      The Foglio Portfolio offers you a once in a lifetime opportunity to bring your favorite Foglio art to your gaming table.
      Each Playmat has the following features:
      Premium Stitched Edge - A brand new offering from UltraPro, each mat will have high quality stitching around every edge, ensuring that your Playmat will last a very long time. Limited Edition - We will never be reprinting any of these Playmats with a stitched edge, ever again.  This is your only opportunity, ever, to get this artwork on a stitched playmat. (Playmats are printed in units of 50, so we'll print to demand, but no more than the closest unit of 50.) Signed by the Artist - Phil and Kaja will be hand signing each and every playmat. Minimal Logos - We've worked with UltraPro and Wizards of the Coast to minimize the impact of their logos as much as we possibly can. If you don't see your favorite piece of Foglio art in the options above, don't fret!  Additional Playmats will be unlocked through Stretch Goals.  
      If we meet all of our initial Stretch Goals, Backers will be able to vote for additional designs.  The design with the most votes will be added to the project.

      What is Secret Sophie, you ask? 
       
      Well, it's a lot like Secret Santa, with a more attractive (albeit more dangerous) delivery person!  (For those not in the know, Sophie the Succubus is Reaper's mascot.)  This is the time of year for Reaper forumites to give a little holiday cheer to each other. 
       
      Unlike most of the exchanges we do on the forums, this will have two categories
      - miniature and gift exchange and gift-only exchange. 
       
      Signups will run from October 23rd to November 3rd, with the assignments going out by November 10th.

      If you've never done an exchange before, how it works is like this:
      ·         Everyone who is interested PMs me (SGHawkins09) with the questionnaire below filled out by the deadline. 
      ·         The organizers (SGHawkins09 and robinh) then matches you with a person to whom you will send your gift/mini, and another person from whom you will receive a gift/mini from in return (sometimes it's the same person).
      ·         Halfway through the exchange, you'll need to send the organizers a WIP. 
      ·         You have until the deadline to send your gift/mini out.
       
      That's pretty much it, feel free to ask questions in this thread, or PM them to me.
       
      This exchange is based on trust.  Please be respectful of the fact that someone else is investing their time, money and energy into painting a mini for you.  I am simply the organizer, but I will do everything I can to make sure that everyone who paints a miniature receives one.

      The Rules (tl;dr version)
      Gifts should be primarily new, Reaper-branded presents. Exchanging painted miniatures is optional. Fill out the questionnaire below and send it to me via PM. Painters must send the organizers a WIP of their mini by December 29th. The deadline for non-painters to mail their items is December 21st.  The deadline for painters is January 31st. Full Rules
      Decide whether you are doing gift and miniature exchange or gift-only exchange. "Gifts" are Reaper paints, unpainted miniatures, or other Reaper painting supplies.  Recommended dollar value of gifts is $25 or less. The miniature exchange is where you paint a Reaper miniature for someone and mail it to them.  If you want to paint more than one miniature, you may do so. Reaper minis are the focus. If you want to paint more than one miniature, you may do so. If you wish to include other gifts for your recipient, you may do so, but please keep them small.  The focus of the exchange should be a Reaper product. Fill out the appropriate sections of the questionnaire below and send it to me via PM.  Please fill out the current version of the questionnaire, Please don't just send an old one, as questions may have changed. Please don't contact your partner unless they have listed themselves as okay with contact. I've included it on the questionnaire, so you'll know who wants to keep it secret and who doesn't. In order to encourage people to start painting early, you will need to post a Work In Progress (WIP) image of your mini to either this thread, or as a reply to your organizer, by December 29th.  The mini should be at least base-coated by this time.  If you don't post a WIP by this point, I may have to demote you to gift-only or drop you from the exchange.  Please don't make me do this. Try really hard to get your miniature out by the deadline.  Let an organizer know if you are going to be late. In the past some people have wanted to send food - please verify allergens, etc. with your partner before proceeding. If you are mailing internationally and plan to send more than just miniatures/paint, you must contact your recipient to get any "bonus items" approved.  We don't want any trouble with customs.  As an example, plant matter or powders can cause a lot of trouble. If you want to participate but acquiring Reaper minis is a problem, please contact me first. The organizers (SGHawkins09 and robinh) can help facilitate any anonymous conversations you want to have with your partner. Have fun! Deadline
      The deadline for mailing gifts is December 21st.
      The deadline for mailing exchange miniatures is January 31st, but it's even better if you can get them out by Christmas.
       
      Assignments Deadline
      The organizers will send the assignments out in about two and a half weeks (November 10th).  Please let me know if you're interested by end of day, November 3rd.  I can't make any guarantees if you're late, but I will try to make arrangements.
       
      Exchange Assistant
      robinh will be helping me run this exchange. He will coordinate and communicate with some of the participants and you can contact either of us with questions and/or issues.
