thornwolf @ : Deadline?
Hey guys, is the deadline September 1st? Is it possible for me to get a couple day extension on this like..possibly till Thursday? Given my current school situation I haven't been able to work too much on this thing but I'm almost done. I just have a few details to work out and its a matter of finding a half an hour a day to do it in. If not I'll try my best to finish it in time. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Current Mood: stressed

ursulav @ : Hey, all!
I'm coming late to the party, I realize, but here's my capybara for the Three of Clubs.
(There's a lot more colors--oranges and purples and whatnot--in the fur in the large version, since I've been fooling with fairly wild colors lately, but it mutes out a lot at 72 dpi.)
I'm sort've wondering if the three club shapes overlap too much, and if I shouldn't swap the side of his mouth that the one is on--it might make a stronger shape to have negative white space, and the clover contrasted against the fur...

I'm thinking I want to fiddle around with those diamonds some more, but it's pretty close to done.

gatcat @ : Thursday, Thursday, THURSDAY!
Hiyer! So here we are, just a few days out from The Big Deadline! How we all doing?
Let's take a gander at the Taking Care Of Business department...
Sketches: Of 54 cards, we have 42 sketches completed or bypassed. We still need sketches from the following folks for the following cards: berbalang,
Info: I still need this info from bastek, pseudomanitou, electricgecko, and mbala emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, please! If you want to just give me the contact information and species name portions, that's fine--I can make up stuff for question 4.
Final Pieces: Here are the completed pieces so far. Due date for the rest of them is September 1st. PLEASE let me know as soon as possible if you don't think you'll be able to make the deadline!
Note To Standby Artists -- Keep standing by! We've recently reassigned a couple of cards and it looks like we might have to reassign a couple more. Thanks to those who have let us know they're still available. We will contact you as necessary.
Aaaaand once again, GREAT WORK everybody! The deck is out of control awesome.
susan_calvin @ : The Butaan from Polillo says "Yes!"
Just a work-in-progress-but-nearly-done scan. The greens scanned in seriously bright, so I might tone those down a little in photoshop, and I haven't done shiney white shines yet either. ...Mostly this was just me playing with the sezzy new flatbed scanner (yum!) so excuse this post.
After the blocky painted stage this picture was so bright and cheesey that it only reminded me of the Del Monte adverts, hence "The Man from Del Monte says 'Yes!'" has been changed to "The Butaan from Polillo says 'Yes!'", and randomly uttered when talking about the painting. I guess you had to be there...

saribou @ : Here's mine. 3 of spades. I feel like I should darken the background and make the spade shapes pop out more. What do you think? I kept the foilage really patchy because I thought about it being too messy when shrunken. It looks unfinished to me this way, though.

amoux @ : Two of Hearts: Maned Wolves
Sketch and original inks by the incredibly generous Cara Mitten, colorpaintination by m'self. Many big thanks to both the Hyena Lady and to Ringleader Raven Kenket for allowing me the opportunity to be a part of this beautiful project.
My work on this card is very nearly done (I'm basically just going to rework some of the texture even though it won't be too noticeable at the printed size) and several folks seem to like it well enough, but I figured I should post it for opinions while there's still a bit of time left to change things before the deadline.
( Under the cut due to largeness of dimensions, though not filesize.Collapse )
Thanks in advance! :>

dragoncreator @ : Nine of Clubs (once more)
Okay guys. Your critiques were all a really big help! I fixed the nose so it doesn't look so huge. I added cooler shadows to the figure and some blues to the sky. Darkened the corner to the left a bit which (pointed out elsewhere) was blending into the figure a bit. I tried cutting off part of the face like suggested before, but it looked bad. Plus it's not going to make such a difference when it's shrunken down... so here we go:

dragoncreator @ : Nine of Club (again)
Would you guys be so kind as to critique this? =^^= It's all digital and on multiple layers, so editing wont be a problem for me.
I've been staring at it for so long that I can't see it for what it is anymore. I need you guys to point out the errors. =^^= I just know it looks "funny." I plan to put narrow African-style borders along the sides to widen it a bit and balance out the centered composition.

anch_kethrii @ : five of spades : cassowary
Even though I got called into work unexpectedly, I still managed to finish him today! My scanner mangled the blues a bit as usual, so I'll use the school's super-scanner for the finished scan. This'll do for now, though.
Still open to art direction if needed :)
