Alice in Wonderland Card Deck - PRE-ORDER!!

My deck is now fully compete and available in my Etsy store here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/205544518/alice-in-wonderland-card-deck-pre-order

Anyone who pre-orders the deck will received a FREE Alice in Wonderland themed postcard as a gift. The pre-order period is from now until the 8th October!

My deck will be available as an in stock item at a later deck, at a later date however at first the quantity will be limited, due to the printing costs.  

Thanks so much for all your support and feedback so far on part one, I am so pleased to hear people are keen on this deck. I really hope many of you will be able to enjoy one in person.

Each card I have tried to make as unique as possible, including pictures and poems from both Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass. Because they are a pre-order they decks will take 2-3 weeks before they get to me. However once I receive I will do my best to ship them out to you as soon as possible.

Alice Deck - Update!

I have sketched the final card for the deck! So that means I should be able to make the deck available for pre-order later today! Any one who does pre-order will get a FREE Alice in Wonderland themed postcard as a gift!

This offer will only be for people who pre-order the deck. The pre-order period will be for roughly 1 week. If I make the deck available today, it will end on the 8th October. After that orders will have to wait until I have the cards in stock to buy, which will be an option in the future. If they do will I will be able to keep them in my Etsy store. 

Each deck will be £20 GBP. 

But I did it!! 54 cards! I am proud right now! Since this is the biggest project I have managed to do. 

I will post the full details later!

this is literally the old faiytale where the king requests a robe be made out of fine fabric, but the guys that make it are con artists that tell him only the intelligent can see the fabric, or something? The king believes them and falls for it cos he doesn’t wanna seem stupid, and then walks around naked cos he thinks he’s wearing this beautiful fabric but he’s really not.

I have 53 cards done out of 54!! So I am hoping I can do the last card tomorrow! These are the cards I have been working on yesterday and today. We have the Red King from Alice Through the Looking Glass, who is the King of Diamonds in this set. Also the Jack of Hearts, needed to be the Knave of Hearts. He even has his own little tart! 

I am so excited I have done so many of them, this is by far the biggest project I have ever done! And I will admit I am proud to be able to do it!

These cards still have their bleed edges on BTW, hence the big space around them.

ghostofthewriter replied to your post: Just One Sketch Left!

Awesome

I think so too, I am going to keep working on it today as well and see how much I can get done! I doubt I can finish everything today but hopefully later in the week I can do the final touches! :D

I am excited about how close I am to finishing since it is 54 cards!

Oops wrong blog!

Just One Sketch Left!

So I have sketched on of the last Kings that needed doing for my Alice in Wonderland Themed Deck! So I only have one more king to go and then I will have the last cards sketched out! I will then have to ink them, shade them and turn them into cards.

However the pencil sketch is the hardest part! I am really hope I can make the card available sometime this week! However I will make a separate post about that when they are actually ready!

The complete deck should cost about £20 GBP for those who have been asking. There will also be a free art postcard for anyone who pre-orders!

Troll Azura Vs Serious Azura by karla-chan
Thank you to Draw-This-Again-Meme for the template.
Okay in theory I know you are meant to post older art, but this does have a story to it so I thought it would be funny to post it. People familiar with my art will know that I didn’t sell my soul! The first image I actually drew on my laptop with MS paint, it is noteworthy that because I am a traditional artist I don’t have a tablet or anything, so I had to use my fingers! I was aiming for “bad” but, like effort was made to make it. It is why the shading is just scribbled on and her face is uneven etc.
This is because I got some hate on a character RP blog about my art being terrible, so I wanted to respond in character. However the bad didn’t come off well enough and people complimented it. Even not knowing I did it in MS paint for a laugh. So I thought it would be good to draw a serious attempt at Azura. Since I was aiming for bad in response to the troll.
Azura is one of the Daedric Princes from the Elder Scrolls games, my character in Dunmer so I decided to draw Azura and Mephala for a laugh since that would be something my character might draw. Although I will admit at one point my art did look like that any way! In fact probably worse because at least I kept the anatomy mostly/sort of okay.

Don’t you just love how people on DA can see something like this, and still comment with things like. Oh look how much you have improved! Even though both dates are 2014 and you have explained the story behind it…
It is not like people on DA do this all the time or anything… 
You point out there is no improvement, and mention there is a story in the artist comments, and they are still like, oh but I can see there is improvement!
The thing is to me, even the title should be a clue!

The basics of eye shapes for writers.

My sources are probably better than I am (more photos, longer descriptions), so here they are: [x] [x]

I figured this would be a useful reference for art since making faces different to each other can be really hard.
