wow, alot of this stuff looks really profesinal and good, but thers some pieces here i relly dont understand, nr 1,2 and 4 really looks a litel amaturish and unfinnished, thers anathomy problems, not as much detail, and really weird composisions and poses.
other thne that its really neat, was any 3d used in those illustartions?

I'll second Lotet's observation about the 3d usage. The overexposed lighting is rarely used in 2d work, so it looks a little wonky.

This pictures are all made from a heavy 3d base. We did not intend to say it was not the case, sorry for that! If you think it is not appropriate to post here, I will close this thread. Sorry

I think for the most part the blending of 3d and 2d is well handled
is just that at times the posses do look slightly stiff, other than that
this show a great deal of creativity and vision!, this are
very well made and original designs, but some the characters
could use a second revision as far a flow goes, specially
on the first image which since is a fight scene should have
better body dynamics, also the hands could use some polishing.

I opened up photoshop and reduced the pictures to average card size pictures.
Now, these pictures do look nice on a large scale, but all those details and readability is kind of lost on the smaller scale.
Take image nr 3 for example, the big green wilderness scene.
In the large picture, you see the texture of the tree, the wooden "bandage' around the stump, several rock definitions in the front of the scene and a mist of trees on the background. The image works.
Now, on the smaller version, you see in the right hand corner some dark branches which take away focus from the tree in the middle, some undefinable masses in the front which are green, and a tree with a very strange, strong shadow in the middle of it's trunk.
So, maybe start from thumbnails and color themes on a canvas size LOWER than the actual card size, then resize it in photoshop to a bigger size when you're adding more and more detail so you can zoom in.
Still, congratulations with the cardgame. You must be damn proud, I know I would be.

Thank You all for these feedbacks, it is very good to have.
In future extensions for the game, we will definetly give more attention to character posing and motions. We were really in a hurry on this first release, therefore we could not pay more attention to it. But we will
#3(armies of the wild),4(hysel Orn),5(Laen) & 7(Ushin) Illustrations are for 80x50 cm prints in 300dpi. Original resolution for this images is around 10000px wide or height. I will try to post a closeup in a next update so you can have a better look at details.
I agree that some compositions with dark masses should have been more balanced.
All the others pictures are for card illustrations (around 6x9 cm).
Thanks for your advices
