If you've read my other journal entries, you know that I'm currently working on a card game. I'd like to have illustrated artwork for the cards and while I could probably do all the illustrations myself, I think it would be better if I not wear as many hats in the creation of my game (so to speak).

If you're interested in doing color illustrations for a card game, inspired by martial arts action, then send me a message and we will see what we can work out.

Please let spread the word and tell your friends about this.

Thanks!

I wish I was really more diligent in posting stuff (art work or journal entries) but I've been focusing most of my attention on game design. Yes, I'm still working on the game that I've mentioned before. It's going well and I plan to do a play test at Origins Game Fair again this year since I've made some changes. I want to see if those changes improve the game or not.

The game is far from ready to be published but it seems to be getting there.

Previously I had shown a blank card for a game I had designed. I recently had a play test of that game at the Origins Game Fair in Columbus Ohio. People offered some great feedback, and some suggestions.

There's still plenty to do before the game can be published though.

I do need illustrations, which I could do myself, but that's a lot to do considering I also have to write the rules and I will probably have to create even more cards before the game can be published.

After discovering that the colors of my cards (for the card game I'm making) were printed darker than they appeared on my screen I wrote a post for The Game Crafter's forums. It turns out that I should have used the same color (RGB/CMYK) profiles that they are using.

After I had installed them I loaded a test image into GIMP and found that the colors that showed up on screen were a lot closer than what had been printed by The Game Crafter.

Which brings up a bit of advice that if you want artwork, that you had created digitally (2D*), to be produced accurately in a physical way (paper, canvas, etc*) you should find out what color profiles they are using so you can get a sense of what the finished product will look like.

*You could create 3D artwork that can be produced in a physical way via 3D printing, but, you often don't need to worry about colors and therefore color profiles aren't needed. That said I know that some places can print a model in color but I don't know if color profiles are needed in that case.

The cards for my game arrived today and they look good with the exception that the colors are darker than in the digital proof. Now I know that along with any other changes I need to make to the colors lighter.
