Fantasy Art Sketch Cards

The Fantasy Art cards from Unstoppable Cards have been released, so I thought I'd share all 20 of my sketch cards with you. The stock on this set was once again pretty terrible, so it was quite a challenge to work on and it was a very quick deadline as well. But overall it was fun subject matter and I'm happy with how they turned out. Hope you like them! Let me know if you get one of mine in your packs!











Source Point Press

Hello everyone! I wanted to take a quick second to update you further on some of the news that you might have heard drop in my interview with Fanboys Talking and also in my interview with Drunk on Comics. I have signed on to pencil and ink a comic book series from Source Point Press. Within a matter of months you will be able to purchase these comics and read along, and I hope you do!
Source Point Press is a new publishing company that will be releasing novels, illustrated poetry books, comic books, and more. 

Its creator and owner Trico Lutkins is also the writer for the upcoming comic book series, titled "Jack of Spades" which will be available in Spring/Summer 2013. This story has been a long time in the making and I'm happy to help bring it to life. 
Trico and I are currently working through the scripts and character concepts and details while I also finish up a large chunk of commissioned paintings and jobs for trading card sets so I can really dig deep into penciling and inking the comic starting February. We're hoping to have the introductory issue #0 and issue #1 available to purchase at the 2013 Motor City Comic Con.  
Keep your eyes peeled for more information on this comic series coming soon and make sure to go like the Source Point facebook page to keep up to date with all the great things coming soon. 

Cable and X-Force #1 Domino Sketch Cover

Yesterday I whipped up a quick sketch cover for my good friends at Gamer's Gauntlet, a fantastic gaming and comic shop. It was dealer's choice so I went with Cable and X-Force #1, a great comic book, and did a sketch of Domino, one of my favorite Marvel characters and a large part of this comic series. 
Went for kind of a combination of her latest outfit and an earlier outfit. Basically I used a version of her outfit from the previous X-Force series but the colors from the current outfit.

World of Fantasy

Breygent's World of Fantasy Set has now been released! For this set I did an illustration of a mermaid for one the set's base cards and I also did 10 sketch Z-Cards. These cards are regular trading card size and then fold out to become a much larger image. Fun to do, but unfortunately I was very worried about the paper I was working on, it was very thin (so that it could fold up easily) and I was worried that if I put too much of any medium on it it would start to tear at the fold lines.
For the mermaid illustration I did in trading card proportions but I did it horizontally. Unfortunately they decided not to lay out any horizontal trading cards so they cropped her a bit. But it still looked nice.

Bram Stoker's Dracula from Cult-Stuff

I did 2 base cards and 30 sketch cards for Bram Stoker's Dracula Trading Card Set from Cult-Stuff this year. This set was intended to be true to the book and it was a lot of fun to be a part of.
WARNING: Some ADULT CONTENT shown below. If you're under 18 then this is not intended for your viewing. I couple of my sketch cards were a bit risque. Many parts of the book were very sexually charged, an especially risky theme for the time period it came out. This trading card set is intended for adults, so I was able to really portray some of the parts of the book in a more adult manner.
Any way, hope you like the cards! If you got one of my sketch cards, please email me a photo of you with it, I'd love to see!
I do have some APs so if you're interested in commissioning me for one, contact me soon!
