trading cards

yay :) I've been planning to do this for a while. I only made three for now.
These are a couple of months old. Black Widow (left) is drawn with pencils and ink. The face is inked, a sort of a self-portrait.

I drew this shy lady today, using black fine-liner, silver marker, white gel pen and graphite.

art card 03 - Lady

You can see the silver parts on this bad web-cam photo. I still haven't gotten a new camera.
Anyway, if you make ATCs yourself and are willing to trade, let me know.

I love how that trading card shines! ATC is art trading cards? just making sure, but it really is an interesting idea.

I love the glass from your still life study post. I've tried drawing transparent/see-through stuff but it never works that well for me. That textured paper looks like a fun medium to work with though I can imagine it being difficult to draw on..

And I really like the red ink sketches too =)

Thank you :)

yep, that's it :) I'd like to trade some with you people I've known for a while, so if you ever feel like it, let me know :)

I guess the secret to drawing transparent stuff is just draw what you see, not what you think that should be. Every invented detail makes it less believable.
This textured paper is great for loose drawings, and I've found it works well with watercolor pencils too.
