Intercontinental Inks

Back to the girlies!
Here's the first batch of inks for my and Josh Cooley's "54 Intercontinental Cuties" playing card deck. Josh and I decided to do line art with digital color to keep them consistent with each other. Since our styles vary already, painting them traditionally would make consistency that much harder.

I love your girls so so much !!!

I definitely understand the concerns for 'consistency', as far as the card deck is concerned; but I'd still love to see some of these gals done up in watercolor .. in particular, the Scottish lass and the mermaid. Perhaps as 'spin-off' prints..?

It's shaping up to be a lovely card set, regardless. ^_^

Droosan,
Yeah, I've been toying with the idea of painting a few of them for no particular reason. Prints are a good idea. Maybe I'll do that.

All awesome, but I would buy the whole deck just for the space station. The Japanese girls are a little scary!

I do not want to be some kind of "party crasher" here but.. Your inks are wonderful, but i prefer your roughs!

James C Trujillo said...

Will you guys by any chance be selling this stuff at APE or Wondercon? There's no way I'm making it to Comic-con.

bpresing said...

Hey there "Lost Viking",
I thought the Norway card might stir you from your hiding place. Don't worry your Norwegian head, she'll be a Queen :)

James,
We're hoping to go to APE, and Wondercon is probable. Nothing set in stone yet though. Since I live in the bay area I'm sure the cards will wind up in some local shops anyway, so you'll get your chance.

Bill, these are absolutely fantastic. Love the Viking dragon-head sneaking a peek on the Norwegian card.

This is my first time i visit here. I found so many entertaining stuff in your blog, especially its discussion. From the tons of comments on your articles, I guess I am not the only one having all the leisure here! Keep up the good work. I have been meaning to write something like this on my website and you have given me an idea. Judi Bola Online
