I realize that I completely SUCK at keeping up with the posting. I DO make the cards every single damn day, I just am tooooo lazy to scan them in one at a time. I prefer to scan a bunch all at once so that I can just zip around and crop and shit all at one go.
I am still practicing for that swap on a4a. But I think that I am going to have to drop it (in fact, I would say that I am, like, 85% certain that I will) simply because I draw, like, cartoon-y people, and everyone else is, like, PHENOMINALLY realistic. Seriously, I am in a group of fan-freakin'-tastic artists, and I feel like my cards just don't measure up. It's not a huge deal. But, to avoid causing disappointment to others that may feel my talent doesn't match their own, I will likely bow out gracefully :D
Anyway, if nothing else, I count myself extremely lucky to have learned a new technique to incorporate into my artwork.
