and a little more
Well... sadly we have lost Soupandbutter due to unexpected computer
troubles,... but this is a harsh wasteland to survive in and all we can do is
push on... or get off the road... hehe
Gavin, hope you get up and running again soon and that you are able to
salvage anything of importance. Take care maybe we will see you next
Charlie, 5 of cups is coming along nicely... are the cups all going to be the
same or are you going to vary them a bit... I was just thinking it might be
more interesting to have a variety of containers that could be salvaged
and used to represent cups or chalices. Anyway just a thought.
Oh are you going to stick with 9 of cups or do you think you might want to
take either one of The Hermit or Judgment cards Gavin was going to do?
Trevor, thanks for saying so... email is incoming.
I've been working on a design for the Magician character decided to
throw in some more high-tech bits seemed like it would fit the idea of a
post-apocalyptic magician to me...
I'm going to work on some compositions for the card of the Magician next,
maybe refine the characters in the 5 of wands a bit.
Sorry to hear about Soup but as you say the wasteland is a hash mistress, still we only have to do 4 images now
Magicians looking great headpiece is very cool and love the laminated identity card, it's a really nice touch. Is the jacket and the cloak connected/one? its just a bit hard to read around her hip/arm area at the moment
Yea not sure about the cups I like your idea of the containers, the only problem then is how easy they are to spot as cups/chalices. On the cards all the cups are the same type so I was going for dirty and dented enamelled tin mugs (stuff you find in army surplus places) horrible things but pretty indestructible.
Palette hmmm been thinking about this, do you reckon its worth using a similar palette to tie our entries together or at least finding a common environment colour scheme? Like 'Mad Max' was desert/sandy, 'The Road' is grey and desaturated etc.....

Thanks for the comment Janos, that's a good idea shame its a bit late to change (ok mainly I'm just too lazy ) though on second thoughts it would be a bit hard to convey the mood of sorrow with an active pose hmmm I'll have to have a think........
Heres a bit more with a bit of colour added, (must do the hands) had some problems with the car wreck on the left but pretty pleased now with how its come out so far..
Well I was going to tell Daestwen to put Judgment and the Hermit back up for grabs since Soup had to bow out but today I was struck with inspiration so here is a wip on Judgment hmmmm finishing 4 card in 9 days?... I better stop typing...
oh also here is another character design sketch I did awhile ago but forgot to post
Thanks Soup, still a shame your pc died but looks like Adams picking up the slack
Judgement's looking great, really sweet action. I think the second version where you've flipped her looks better, have you thought about movng the overall composition to the right a bit?
Interesting idea for the hermit, the dead forest around him's a cool touch.
Hmmm not much time left, anyway here's my 9 of cups, hope to get it finished tomorrow...
The idea is that the cups are represented by those Fragile symbols you get on the side of boxes for electrical goods. The characters having a sale of his pre-apocalypse artefacts all stacked up in boxes (who knows TV might still work somewhere)
Seaport I love the idea for 9 of cups can't wait to see the finished piece.
Personally at the moment I'm hoping for either a miracle or that Daestwen
gives an extension on the deadline which ever comes first.
I've gotten some more done. Its not going as fast as I would like though.
Anyway thought I would throw up updated wips for Judgment and the
Hermit since they are the ones that are moving along the best atm.
