Is there any stylistic appraoch that you guys are pursuing? or are you guys just scketching and seeing what the result is of that? Also the rules state that each person must do a least two cards. Are we pick are own cards or deciding as a group which to do?

I beleive we are to pick our own cards -- other than that it's all up to us to find a cohesive middle-ground I'm thinking a bit along the typical side and going with fantasy and things. Everytime I've been in these so far, trying to stray away from the norm, it has been debunked bad. ;p
What are your thoughts on this... btw, I'm going to be on AIM everyday from 12 - 4 CST.
Of course I might have my offline moments, but just letting you guys know
how bouhgt this...everyone post a style or styles they like and would want to try with these cards. We can discuss further after we see all the different examples...and then go from there. It might be a cool idea if er try to combine all the styles in an interesting way to...
just putting it out there
Well as always, my favorite themes are fantasy, dark fantasy, sci-fi, cyberpunk, steampunk, and pretty much anything else along those lines
I'll post a ton of ref pics
That sounds good. I'll start whipping up some wips tonight.
So i was looking up ref images....as for style i like the idea of high fantasy, with a dark Victorian twist. it might be cool to mix a little punk in to .
As for clothing and such, i'll get to posting that stuff later.
let me know what you guys think about that idea...also post some refs of styles and ideas you guys have . Don't want to be the only one pitching ideas.
I'll be on this evening 11:45pm ish (EST) probably till 3 or 4 am if you guys want to chat more directly
anyhow happy designing
Anyone have any other ideas for a style/theme?Anyone have any moodboards as well?
Having a theme will tie all of our work together as team...plus it'll be cool to pool resources .
Ideas will probably flow easier as well.

I am down with whatever style.I think it is a good idea if we go with whatever we are envisioning for our respective cards, and then after we got some wips of the different style we can see about applying that to the rest maybe? Do you think this will be a good idea? As for me I have sketched some WIPs of the Justice card in my sketch book. I gonna try tonight to upload some digital sketchs of that. I also am beginning to work on the 7 of wands too. hopefully by the end of saturday I will have those sketches posted. How is everyone else fairing?
I'm not sure if two people in the same group do the same card..not a 100% on that though.
The ones above are already selected....I kinda chose the star card and the 3 of cups already. Matte art chose the moon and the 2 of pentacles. GeistDel chose the Justice and 7 of wands.
If you are having trouble picking a card, you might be able to do one of those random card selectors or you could google "what tarot card are you" type things.
Also when you claim cards you should head to the TeamChow discussion thread to finalize the claim. Better head there soon though...alot of the good ones are getting taken fast!
As for research check the links i posted earlier, as they may help .
Sorry about that. I mentioned in the very first pm i sent, that I wanted to know what cards you were choosing, mostly so we could claim them right away as at that point quite a few had already had been taken.
The Team Chow III sign up thread mentions in the rules that the card selections are on a first come first, serve basis. Everyone chose as I heard back from them...you could claim them on your own though. GeistDel claimed their cards under Clan Serpentine at the TeamChow III Discussion thread.
Everyone had already selected their cards before I heard back from you...I figured you already knew about them being first come first serve. I didn't preselect any cards for the group as i thought it unfair and figured everyone probably pick for themselves as they would be happier....
There are still alot of good cards you can claim though. Most of the major arcana are still available....the swords may not be available, but the wands (career and knowledge), cups (love and emotions) and pentacles (money and health ) are.
Also don't forget you can only choose one major arcana. Only half the groups entries can be of major arcana. You can choose 2 minor if you want though (according to the TeamChow rules).
I do recommend picking cards asap before anymore get taken ><.
Sorry again for the mix up.
I gonna try to post some sketches today and tommorrow.
I gotta scan my quick sketches, is there anyway we can schedule weekly or more meetings that we talk out what we're working on or something?
I suppose we can try. It seems that everyone has conflicting schedules though. I also work most days....and evenings lately. I can try to meet up with people after 11:30pm Monday to Thursday...before 4 on Friday, and anytime on Sunday (only day off this week).
I still think its probably a good idea to post stuff here as we finish it, just so when we do get time we can respond to everyone's work as we see it.
Hey guys, So I finally got some WIPs up. These first few are of The Justice card. This is in no way representative of the final product or is it the sum total of my ideas, but these are some of the sketches that I like the most. Ill try to post the rest of them tommorrow since they are in my sketch pad at work. I will also try to get some more sketchs of the 7 of wands. Please give me your thoughts. I am not married to any one idea at this point so fire away. Also I can probably meet up on Mon- Thurs @ 11:30 or Friday before 4. Just let me know if it is feasible and what forum we are meeting on (i.e. here or aim)
Awesome stuff Geist!
Ok, so everyone will meet on aim tomorrow night (Wednesday) @ 11:45pm Est. To make everything go smoothly, please post your sketches here. I'll do the samein the morning before work
also my aim again=nefgoddess
See ya guys online
I don't know if anyone happened to see that my AIM icon was there...
AIM = fedoraparanoia
I'm on and ready to discuss (think it's 11:55PM EST?)
Sorry I was not able to make it last night. I was at the coffee shop sketching...the EST made me lose track. what was the result of last nights discussion?
