For my first cards I cut them out first and then painted/color penciled/drew. That doesn't work well for me since they want to move around. Hence the boxes! Working so far! :)
Sort of a manga horse?
I really loved doing this colorful little conch shell!
So, I'm working at building up my supply of cards to trade and in the process I'm tricking myself into practicing art almost every day! (I'm so sneaky.) I have several lists of themes and subjects for cards which gives me lots of ideas. I may tackle an old car next!
Have a great and artful day!
