This card game, however, is based on Greek mythology and the illustrations are to be executed in whichever medium I see fit. So far, I've been entertaining various ideas with some proper concept art that has spread over and throughout my sketchbook. I absolutely love this era of Greek history and am having one hell of a good time researching and finding out more and more about each creature and deity.
Anyway, I just wanted to toss some scans of my sketches up for view. I converted them to grayscale in order to overpower the natural tones of the paper and I also tweaked the contrast a bit to get rid of a lot of the smudging as well as emphasize the pencil lines. I believe that I will execute the final illustrations in watercolor...I'm not too positive if that's the dedicated road I'm willing to take as of yet, but I'll know within the first and second attempts whether I should try another route.
As always, I welcome any questions or comments on any of these. Actually, I would be absolutely thrilled to get some feedback! Feel free to drop some comments below!
