I do many of mine in full color. This Anakin card above (click on image to see animation) was sketched out in pencil, then colored with markers (Copics and Prismacolors), inked with disposable tech pens (Sakura Pigma Microns or Staedtler pigment liners), and highlighted with Copic white. I need Santa to bring me more pens and markers- or at least some Copic refills!
Each card ends up being a hand drawn one of a kind art card. Once I finish them and send them back to Topps, they are randomly inserted into card packs and sold on-line or in retail and hobby stores all over the world. I usually get 6 artist returns back for me to keep/sell.
This is my 2nd Galaxy set to work on for Topps this year- worked on G6 around the first of the year. Last year I got to work on The Empire Strikes Back 3D Widevision set- my first professional sketch card gig.
I’ve still got a few artist returns from Galaxy 6 still available for sale here on my site and I’ve dropped the prices on each for Christmas. I’ll have a few for Galaxy 7 returns for sale after the holidays on my site and at upcoming 2012 conventions.
Got to get back to the drawing board- MTFBWYA!
