ATC #59: Fortune Cookie
"Fortune cookies seem like a good match for a Jirachi like Pixie. Not only do they contain a fortune, but they taste good!"

I drew this after the tournament at the Wisconsin Pokemon TCG State Championships up in Baraboo, WI, last week using *Nestly's Copics, since neither of us wanted to play in side events or anything. Good as time as any to art, plus this works as a nice belated birthday present! This is her Jirachi character, Pixie. :)



I'm more familiar with Prismacolor markers, but Copics are also pretty nifty. I don't think they blend quite as well, but they make a sharper image in the end, plus there are some other cool things you can do with them. I experimented with an interesting shading style, sort of splotching dots here and there to add to the effect, on top of standard shading. I was skeptical at first, but I think it worked out well!

Drawn on March 16th, 2013.

Pretty sweet drawing, Devin. You draw on actual card, right? And I guess you would somehow put on a protective coating on top of the art so it could last, like an actual trading card? I would be quite interested at trying my hand at card-art! What type of card and pens/drawing implements do you use and what is then used as the protect layer, if there is any? Should I create one, maybe I'll send you one in the post somehow =P

Yeah, it's a card stock type of thing. Same thing that =Nestly linked to in her post. It'd probably be most professional to apply that protective coating stuff. But really I just take a good scan of it and then put it into a card sleeve. It works fine enough.

As for pens and such, I use PrismaColor art markers for these ATC cards. They do a nice job in my opinion, but they can be rather expensive. Any medium will work fine for these, though!

Yaaaay this is so pretty! <3 It always makes me smile when I open my binder now, haha.
Thanks so much for taking the time to draw this for me! :D (You slow poke, lol) "Hurry up Devin we're leaving!!" xDD
But yeah you should do some more colored art cards yourself when you have time. It's a really nice thing to do while having a fun cartoon on you don't have to pay all that much attention to, like Garfield or something. XD

I still wonder what that fortune says.... :paranoid:
