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.
