For Throwback Thursday, I am posting a project that I did about 11 years ago. I was hired to design a series of trading cards, with a total of over 40 cards. I was given full creative control over this project. Each card featured a character conceptualized in appearance even their names were creations of mine. The cards ranged from heroes and villains characters, heroes in civilian clothes, to scenic cards showing battle and rescue scenes. Each card began with several traditional pencil drawings that were then scanned into the computer and inked and colored with Adobe Photoshop, which I now use Adobe Illustrator for. This project was extremely fun for me as an artist. I was hired to create pretty much everything, the characters, their personalities and even their world.
