The Deep Cards Released


Viceroy’s The Deep Cards Released


I can finally announce that Viceroy’s The Deep set is now being shipped. Sadly Viceroy had some issues with buyers which meant that their set was delayed, but they are now shipping and it is looking like a fantastic set.

I can also now reveal my contributions to the set which you can see below. I had a lot of fun with this set – sadly my blue Copic pens did not! I had a bit of a drama halfway through finishing the set and had to rush out to restock pretty much all of my blue pens as they had died a death on me. Insectae managed to kill what was left of my greens, while Beyond Stoker’s Dracula sucked my red dry – so I suppose it was only a matter of time.

I have put a few of my personal favorite cards from this set below, but if you would like to see all 25 of the cards I contributed to this set, click here.

I have saved one AP for my father on this set as I know how much he loves sea creatures and tropical fish, but this still leaves me with 4 APs up for grabs if anyone is interested. I will add more information on these as and when I draw them/they are approved by Viceroy, however if you are interested in a personalized AP, please feel free to get in touch.

Viceroy Insectae Cards Released


Viceroy Insectae Cards Released


Viceroy have announced the release of the Insectae card set. I really enjoyed working on this set as it gave me a chance to work with a bit of realism. I hope that the collectors like my take on certain creatures as obviously I still managed to put a little of my own style on them. This was a big test of my Copic skills too as I was relying on a lot of new techniques to create the illusion of exoskeletons, shining shells and even (in the case of fireflies) luminescence.

I really hope I get to work with Viceroy again. It was a nice change to work on animals and there are even rumblings of the possibility of arachnids in the future (obviously we had to check every insect we were drawing to make sure it was actually from the species group Insectae first!) The card stock was also of a beautiful high quality being very thick with engraved information on the back and foil detailing.

All in all these cards make for a beautiful collector’s piece and I’m really looking forward to hearing from anyone who drew any of my cards in their decks.

Here are some of my favorite contributions to the set. Let me know if you managed to pull any of them. You can see the entire collection of the 25 cards I contributed to this set here.

I also have 5 APs from this set up for grabs if anyone is interested. I will add more information on these as and when I draw them/they are approved by Viceroy, however if you are interested in a personalized AP, please feel free to get in touch.

Viceroy Insectae & The Deep Announcement

by Anastasia Catris in Announcement Comments: 0 tags: ACEO, Announcement, Sketch Cards, Viceroy

I am happy to announce that since receiving my first company job as a sketch card artist for Cult-Stuff Cards, I have been accepted to work on two new sets for a Las Vegas based company named Viceroy Cards.

 


Much like Cult-Stuff, Viceroy concentrate on unlicensed material (I.e. material which holds no copyright and is therefore public domain), creating high quality cards with unique artist driven artwork. Their previous set ‘Carnival’, for example, had artists creating characters based on the travelling carnival, such as strong men and ring leaders (I am seriously jealous that I couldn’t be part of this set – would have had a lot of fun with it, I’m sure).

I have been commissioned to work on their two newest sets named ‘Insectae’ and ‘The Deep’. I am pretty excited about this as I get to play around with realism and, of course, draw a lot of ugly buglies and underwater creatures.

My dad actually seems more excited about this set than anything else I’ve worked on! If anything because me and him have always shared a passion for tropical fish. He has an amazing fish tank of his own, full of ridiculously colourful fish; whereas I have three little puffer fish in my own smaller tank. I’m hoping I will get to reference some of these little guys in my sketches.

Keep posted by following this blog for more information on the set as I hear more from Viceroy. To learn more about this company, feel free to visit their site Viceroy Cards or their Facebook group here. You can also follow them on Twitter.
