|This is to show off the lovely gifts i have been given of friends and watchers of my characters, as well as other nice gifts arts done for me. I am very thankful for them and each one makes me very happy. Thank you so much!|
So I am being a good girl and doing some more work on my Alice in Wonderland themed card deck because I know some people really want it. I have actually done 3 more sketches and I'm still planning to see if I can get some more done today.
Originally I said there was going to be an illustration or poem on each card, but as I am getting further up the suits I think this is going to be more difficult. I am especially worried about the 9's and 10's of each suit. Do people think it will be okay if those cards didn't have an illustration on in the same way the others so far do?
I don't want the designs to look too cramped, but I still want the deck to be interesting as a whole. I would be interested in people's thoughts. Or will the fact they don't have an illustration on them look odd?
I will try and make the actual suits look interesting on those cards? It would only be the cards of the higher suits and so far I have managed to do up to 7 with illustrations on and it still look good. So I am reasonably sure I could do 8, if I kept the designs small and fairly simple.
I am a traditional artist and lives just outside Manchester in the UK. As far as work done in the art industry, I do not have much experience but has a T-shirt and program design for a Manchester gaming convention known as "Game Con". I would love more experience and would enjoy computer game concept design, gaming/war-game/miniature figure concept design, card and book illustration or anything along that vein. I don't have any art school experience and is self taught using books, online guides and feedback of others to improve.|
Although I do very much enjoy the social aspect of DA and love making friends. I am very thankful to everyone on here who has helped me grow, I could not have done it without you. I am always looking for ways to improve & is happy to receive any advise or critique. My main focus being fantasy art being influenced by anime. I also collect BJDs and very much enjoy the photography aspect of them.
A lot of my BJD work can be found on Tumblr -> karla-chans-bjds.tumblr.com/
