    Ted's "It's Finally Finished" Thread (L5R GAME ART), (Sony's "The Con" Concepts)

    Here is some card art I did for the "Legend of the Five Rings CCG." I'm kinda happy with them, but wanna know what you think.

    Here is a link to a helpful article that covers image design when it is published in card form...http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=mtgcom/feature/252

    Hi Ted, nice job designing for the circular/rectangular format. I really like the red guy. Are those your own creature designs or were you working from a style guide?

    oof! love the colours as well, really wonderfull to look at. what happened to the hand holding the sword? looks like, well, i think its off, like at the wrong perspective in relation to the sword.

    the shoulder pads look almost as an after thought, and im not sure how they stay on. the left side shoulder pad looks like its sliding off, but its detailed very nicely.

    i tried the link to WoTC but its dead or something. anyways, i think these are wonderful, gonna go n have a look at your site. thanks for sharing

    flex mathews - Thanks.
    Elwell - Thanks for noticing the effort. These are my own creature designs. The art director wanted something with a lot of teeth for the first image and then another demon that awkwardly memicked a samuai for the second.
    jabberwookie - Glad you enjoy looking at these. Thanks for the critique. I fixed the link.
    KevinP - Hey Kevin. Thanks for the response...I'll keep an eye out for your work. Take it easy.

    Ted-

    First of all, excellent work. I love the general moods created by the colors, but the ppl above have said the same thing I think.

    Secondly, I'm interested to know how you get information on drawing for cardgame illustrations. It is something I would like to participate in someday. If you could just e-mail me with general info, that would be great!!!!!!

    These are concepts I did for the new Sony PSP fighting game "The Con." I have more, but I need to do some sketchbook and file digging to find em.

    These are very old and done in great haste, but I'm curious to know what you think anyway.

    I love the designs and the colors are fantastic.

    I agree with the shoulderpad crit, that's one of the few things that bugs me about the second image. I also wish there was a bit more differentiation between textures from the steel sword to the shoulderpads to the skin, it would help bring these to a new level. You start to get it with the shoulderpads but you could push it further.

    Still very cool stuff!

    easy tiger! - Thanks for the compliment and critique. I agree on all that.
    Death - Thanks.
    Red_Rook - Guess what man...I'm going back to Amsterdam for Rembrant's 400th birthday. I'm fired up. It would be even better if there was another workshop there. Glad you like the oni. Yeh, "the con guy" should really be considered production art. Paintings done after I was shown around twenty-five other characters that were done in a style that I needed to use a certain technique to adapt to. Thanks for the reply. I saw that thunderdome piece you did...great job.

    Here are a couple of drawings done to generate ideas of how I would approach this project. These were done before I was shown any other designer's progress. It was the best being asked to somewhat consider the days of Street Fighter II in my approach. I found these scanned images in my files, I guess I have to rescan the others and post em later.

    Please let me know what you think.

    the sketches to me seem so much more polished.
    the stomach muscles on the colored photos makes me cringe alittle, very odd looking.

    really like the sketches alot though.
