So Many Illustrations!
Well, hello! Long time no see, friends. I took last weekend off from the blog posts, because I had family in town and wanted to spend as much time with them as possible. But I’m back to it, and my oh my, how much has happened since my last post!
All the Projects….all the Time
In the past couple weeks, I have been commissioned by several people to create illustrations for various different projects. I can’t go into great detail on all of them, but the list includes a few concept projects, as well as an illustration for custom cards for a miniatures game! Oh, and my various personal illustrations projects…but let’s talk about the card illustration.
So, my boyfriend’s brother helps organize an X-Wing tournament in his area every year. If you don’t know what X-Wing is, it’s a tabletop miniature war game set in the Star Wars universe. Players are in control of a fleet of ships and they duke it out in an all-out, epic, space dogfight. A fight may look something like the picture on the right.
Anyway, a fleet is dictated by cards that players have in their hand. During tournaments, winners can sometimes earn alternate cards (alt cards for short) as prizes. Typically, these alt cards are custom-made by various artists and illustrators. And I just so happen to be chosen to create an illustration for an alt card this year! I am a new face in the community, so I was asked to do a quick sketch to show the organizers my skills.
My sketch of a Tie Defender.
If I am able to, I will post the final card design when it’s complete…along with all the other illustrations I am working on. See you next week for more fun and exciting adventures!
