This set has seventy cards(read: Cloud will be sold separately) in the deck that includes Smash Bros characters that have been playable at some point in time, plus a couple boss characters, ... and Viridi because of her inclusion in Palutena's Guidance scenes haha.
I decided on making a physical copy of this deck with tarot-sized cards. I'm only making about one-hundred of these decks, and then moving onto my follow-up project, the Minor Arcana which will be a fifty-six card deck.
The card dimension are, 70mm x 121mm or 2.75" x 4.75". They will be printed in 300 dpi on 300gsm premium card stock, in a custom tuck box which you can see in my gallery and probably a little booklet.

So I have been thinking of doing a few articles apart from feature articles to link some useful resources for artists and this is the first one of these. While this is a mini one, it's helped me a lot on several occassions.
Sometimes it gets confusing to decide which colours to choose. "'Should I go with a turquoise and a gold for the face? What about the room? I was going for a chic cool modern palette which is minimalistic!" Surely, a lot of us have gone through those decisive moments.

Back when it was common knowledge that the sun and all the planets revolved around our Earth, the phenomena of solar and lunar eclipses were mysterious and terrifying occurrences. Were the gods unhappy with us? Were these heavenly messages indicating the End of Days had arrived? Emperors and kings often felt a familial connection with the Sun, and so feared its temporary withdrawal from the sky to be a warning of its unhappiness with royal actions. Desp

Most of you nature photographers will have seen long-exposed waterscapes resulting in the peculiar soft aspect of water. If you haven't, or if you're not a nature photographer, here are a few examples:
In this article I will be sharing some ideas and tips which hopefully will get you interested in this kind of photography first of all; and if that marvellous personal paradigm shift takes place within you, give you the basics in achieving the sought-after results.
Who am I to dare do this ?
Well this is quite important: I'm nothing fancy, just a nature photography-loving guy with a cheap entry-level DSLR and tripod, with a couple of filters. But taking photos out there and gleaning knowledge from artists I admire has taught me lots. This I simply wis

There is no "right way" to make a species. There are TONS of variables that might affect your success (in sales). Nothing here should be taken literally. It's only my opinion & personal methods!
Not in it for Money
I DO NOT recommend people make an OS for the specific reason that they want to make money.
It's fine to want a little bit of spending money or something in the mindset of a little side-project. But if you go into this market with the expectation of making a living & supporting yourself off of this?
You're very likely to be disappointed, cause yourself unnecessary stress, and possibly make yourself feel like a failure, when you absolutely are not.

Original Species Information: VestaVestaOriginal Species Information: Vesta2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The name originates from the Roman goddess of hearth, home, and family.
Vestas are an ancient race with their civilization built around nature. While not technologically advanced, they are profound in magic and hold a strong affinity for one or (in some rare cases) more element. They are known for their long, groomed tails, fluffed ears, and horns that differ from Vesta to Vesta. The tips of their ears are typically protected by ornate clips as Vestas believe the source of their magic stem from their ears. Vestas have a love for beauty and it is a part of their culture to dress elaborately, often wearing their trademark embroidery, the "Vestan Braid", somewhere on them.
Vestas are a closed species, meaning that you may not create them without my permission
Vestas, while not immortal, are known to have a long lifespan. They can live up to three-times that of a human. Because of their prolonged l

The 5 bullshit myths of concept art.Concept art is getting bigger and bigger. More people know what it is nowadays, it gets shown in the media more often and more books get released. This automatically results into more people wanting to become concept artists. So many artschools are now creating special courses all towards game art or concept art.

Yet it is a fairly new thing to most people and the idea of "becoming a concept artist" has grown rapidly over such a short time that a lot of people who are new to it seem to get a lot of misguide info. I am going to try to list this misguided info and direct you to the correct info.
