On This Date…

… in 1985, I was born.  And the world trembled.  I’m not one to do much celebrating (being poor and having almost no local friends probably has something to do with this), so how about we just finish off the sketch card pickups then?

Echo..

Echo..

This was the only one of the bunch not from that one particular seller.  It is pretty great, but I can’t read sigs of people I don’t know via Facebook or whatever that don’t write out their full name, so I don’t who this one is by.  I will edit to attribute credit here & on the sketch card page when/if I ever find out.

Black Widow by Felipe Alves..

Black Widow by Felipe Alves..

Another Felipe Alves.  I picked this one up purely because her face reminds me of someone I know, and not because she’s tied up.  That’s just a bonus. 😛

Dani Moonstar by Cal Slayton..

Dani Moonstar by Cal Slayton..

This is another one that’s borderline “I could do one this good”, but 1.) I like Cal’s style, and 2.) There isn’t a lot of choice when it comes to Dani Moonstar cards, so I grabbed it, and I am quite pleased with my purchase, thank you veddy veddy much.

Nico Minoru by Stefanie Battalene..

Nico Minoru by Stefanie Battalene..

Finally, one more trip to the Stefanie Battalene well.  This card is just absolutely spectacular and phenomenal and mind-blowingly fantastic.  This isn’t just a centerpiece for my Miscellaneous Marvel Full-Color Sketch Card Page, it is one of the best cards in my entire collection.  Short of the heavy hitters that are way beyond my means (Melike Acar, Charles Hall, etc.), Stefanie Battalene has gotta be within the next couple tiers.

And with that, I am outta here for today.  Because what better way to celebrate one’s birthday than by going out in bone-chilling cold on when you are tired and not fully recovered from the stomach sickness?

But anyway, thank you for stopping by!

Until our next…

The Sketch Card Sale-A-Thon Part 2

Time now for the next bunch of sketch cards I picked up all from this one seller.

Mockingbird

Mockingbird by Mauro Fodra..

This one is for the miscellaneous licensed Marvel sketch card page and it is pretty fantastic for the just under $8 price tag.  Definitely one of the nice Fodras.

Dagger

Dagger by Johndell Snead..

Breakin’ up the Mauro Fodra-fest (there are two more coming) with some Daggers.  Here’s a nice shot by Johndell Snead.  I wish I had the skillz to do anything remotely dynamic like that.

Dagger by Stefanie Battalene..

Dagger by Stefanie Battalene..

This is card is phenomenal.  It almost looks it glows.  Stefanie Battalene is a top-notch artist and I’m super psyched that I’ll have at least three sketch cards by her in my binder when this sketch card buying frenzy is all said & done.  Outstanding work.

She-Hulk by Mauro Fodra..

She-Hulk by Mauro Fodra..

This was also a nice effort for the same price as the Mockingbird.  I like it when She-Hulk actually has muscles.

She-Hulk by Felipe Alves..

She-Hulk by Felipe Alves..

It’s not an absolute necessity though.  This is the other Felipe Alves card I mentioned in the prior post, and despite lack of defined muscles, it is also good.

Scarlet Witch/ She-Hulk puzzle

Scarlet Witch/ She-Hulk puzzle by Mauro Fodra..

Another Mauro Fodra.  Not sure what to do with it though.  Puzzle won’t work on She-Hulk page cuz one isn’t She-Hulk, and I won’t break them up.  But it won’t go on the misc. Marvel full color page cuz She-Hulk is on it.  So I guess I’m gonna have to start some other page for it.

That’s all for today.  We’ll do the third part of this saga once they get here and have been scanned.  Thanks for stopping by!

Until our next…
