More Sketch Cards by Yours Truly

New day, new batch of art.

Rogue

Rogue..

This is bound for my pal Twitter pal Celina.  Drew it up ages ago but just finally got her colored a few days ago.

Raven 1..

Raven 1..

This was the only one of the three Ravens I liked before I colored them, but I’m pretty lukewarm on it now.

Raven 2..

Raven 2..

I don’t even know what the hell I was trying to do on this one, but I actually liked it a little better after coloring.  Still not a strong effort though…

Raven 3..

Raven 3..

I don’t even… I can’t stand most of my comic book/cartoon/anime-style stuff.  Let’s just get this post over with only other one of the five besides the Rogue that doesn’t really make me cringe.

Blink..

Blink..

Finally, mercifully, here’s another Blink that turned out decent.  Multiple Blinks in a short period happened because I didn’t have a tan marker to help out with more regular human skintones at the time I first sketched them all out.

That’s all for this post.  I’ll try to do better next time.  Thank you for stopping by nonetheless.

Until our next…

Old Sketch Cards (Edited, but still possibly NSFW)

I was going through the old scan folders that were still on this computer and editing the sketch cards into into individual pics for posting on The Sketch Card Page, so I thought I’d toss ’em up in a blog post while I was at it.  Enjoy.

Starfire..

Starfire..

Dunno who this one is by.  I literally only started keeping track since the last two or three sketch card-related posts.  Great card though.  I think it was a pick up from some charity thing.  Well worth the couple bucks I paid, and then some.

Dani Moonstar by MRam (Edited)..

Dani Moonstar by MRam (Edited)..

Whoa!  Sexytime Dani Moonstar.  I won a pair of commissions from MRam on eBay.  Figured I might as well go for the nudity since that’s what he’s known for anyway.  Dani and the next card were who I chose.  Both are edited for obvious NSFW reasons.

You were expecting somebody else?  You know I’m all about the Raven.  MRam does fine work. 😉

Raven by Banky Farano..

Raven by Banky Farano..

These last three come from an epic several person sketch card trade in a Facebook group.  I know I posted the cards I did for everyone else, but it doesn’t appear I ever got around to showing what I got in return.

Raven by Juan Fontanez..

Raven by Juan Fontanez..

We all did a sketch card for each other (in one case, we did two apiece).  It was a good way to do get experience by doing a lot of different cards (8 total) in a short amount of time, and get exactly what you wanted in return.  And in return, I got Ravens.  Lots and lots of Ravens.  Mwahahahaha…

Raven by Ashleigh Popplewell..

Raven by Ashleigh Popplewell..

And the best one of all was this magnificent Ashleigh Popplewell classic.  I believe I did a Jareth from Labyrinth in return for this.

That’s all for this one.  I should be able to do at least one more post like this when I’ve edited the rest.  Thanks for stopping by!

The Sketch Card Sale-A-Thon Part 1

There has been a certain seller on eBay with tons of Marvel sketch cards that has been marking them down a great deal.  Enough that way too many pretty nice ones have fallen into my price range.  My sketch card page has suddenly started to fill out a bit, and this is why.  There’s so much that I’m splitting this into at least two posts (I still have three more on the way).  So without further ado, here is what I have picked up in the last month or so of going absolutely bananas on sketch cards.

Dani Moonstar by Stefanie Battalene..

Dani Moonstar by Stefanie Battalene..

There are multiple Battalenes in this bunch.  Her style is probably my favorite amongst my pickups.  I sense a hint of manga in it and it just looks unique, especially on the more colorful ones.

Rogue by Stefanie Battalene..

Rogue by Stefanie Battalene..

See what I mean?  And just wait until you see the other two in later posts.

Rogue by Bridgit Scheide..

Rogue by Bridgit Scheide..

This wasn’t originally on my radar and kind of grew on me over time.  Probably the one closest to my “I could make one this good” standards, but eh, I like it regardless. 🙂

Rogue by Jessica Hickman..

Rogue by Jessica Hickman..

Jessica Hickman has been on my shortlist of sketch card artist wants for awhile, so to get one by her for under $9 is pretty cool.

Rogue by Felipe Alves..

Rogue by Felipe Alves..

Without question, I think this was the best card available by this artist.  I do have one more by him I also quite liked to post next time though, so you can be the judge.

That’ll do for now.  More sketch cards that aren’t by me again next time.  As always, thanks for stopping by!

Until our next…

Other COMC Keepers

Here are the last of the keepers from my latest Check Out My Cards order/binge.

First up, some glossy Allen & Ginter..

All three came from the same set break, as you can see..

A couple new cards of my favorite pro wrestler of all-time, the five time, five time, five time, five time, five time WCW Heavyweight Champion of the world and overall most decorated champion in WCW history, Booker T!

The Muscles, Ink back..

A few random comic cards. No, that Hulk card isn't phallic at all. Why do you ask?

A few comic backs..

And finally, hottie hits..

My COMC keepers, ladies & gentlemen.  Stay tuned for trade bait and the inks for my latest pair of Marvel sketch covers.  Thank you and goodnight.

Until our next…

I’ll Get Back to Baseball Cards Eventually…

They are really boring me right now though, Diamond Giveaway site aside.  The only cards I’ve purchased this month that I’ve really enjoyed were the blasters of Panini Americana.  Everything else I should’ve left on the shelf.  The first Americana blaster has been scanned and will be posted up in the near future, but today feels like a sketch card dump post kinda day.  So sit back, relax, and get ready to enjoy some serviceable art!

Goku!

Batwoman!

King Felix! On a decoy card.

Green Lantern John Stewart!

Vampirella!

Ricky Romero! Also on a decoy, but one with a non-slick side, so I was able to use my normal lighter pencil on it. Hopefully you can see it somewhat okay.

Dani Moonstar! (X-Men)

Supergirl!

Starfire!

Rukia! (Bleach)

Well, there ya go.  Most of it is for sale or trade.  Inquire within.  Thanks for stopping by.  Next time, a blaster’s worth Americana.

Until our next…

Odds, Ends, Updates and Highlights

Hey.  Wassup?  Got some random stuff to hit on, so here goes.

First, there is one slot left in The Daily Dimwit‘s Ovation Case Group Break!  One team of your choice and a second to be randomed off, for $30.  Go for it!

~~~~

Next, I’ve gotten into trade talks with all of the following recently!  Cardboard Collections, The Good Dimwit again, Things are Funner Here, the legendary Night Owl, Argyled Plaschke, The Lost Collector, Potch Wheeler, Nomo’s Sushi Platter, Too Many Vergrandersons, Cards on Cards, Offy and more!  I know what you’re thinking.  Why do I always get myself in so over my head with trades that at least a couple will end up taking forever?  Well, this time I’m not in over my head (it just looks that way).  Every single person up there has most of their cards set aside for them already.  Once finalized (three already are), these will start going out in June.

Stuff for Marie and Cardboard Conundrum is pretty much ready to go and just needs sent.  I’m pretty sure that despite my extreme brokeness, I will be able to send these towards the end of the week after the weather breaks (it’s storming something fierce as I type this).

On top of all that, I think I’ll finally be sending what I believe are my last four horrendously long overdue trades in the near future as well.

Finally, check back this evening to see what football cards I have available.  I should at least have most of my swatches and autos listed by then.

Oh, and for the sake of having a picture in this post, here’s a look at my latest artistic endeavor:

Pencils on the X-Men blank variant cover I picked up on Free Comic Book Day, which wasn't even close to free. L-R: Jubilee, Storm, Wolverine, Cyclops, Pixie, Angel, Emma Frost.

That’s all for now.  Seeya.

Jubilee is a vampire now.  Vampires are cool.
