Lackadaisy Cardshark by tracyjb Lackadaisy Cardshark by tracyjb
It was beginning to bother me that I didn't have any recent full color images of all of the Lackadaisy gang...or maybe it was just another excuse to get my painting fix for the month. I had some compositional trouble - fitting that many characters into one picture is never easy, but I think the playing card theme turned out to be a reasonable choice.
It was rendered in pencil first and painted in Photoshop with the use of a tablet and many, many cups of coffee. (If it appears too dark and incredibly over-saturated, kindly let me know. Working on LCDs can be misleading like that...)

Characters Mitzi, Rocky, Wick, Freckle, Ivy and Viktor.
Prints and such will be available shortly.

Now, back to comic-ing.

Daily Deviation. Wow. Thank you to those involved in selecting the image and to everyone who's taken the time to stop by and/or comment. It's greatly appreciated.

Daily Deviation

Given 2007-06-21
Most of you have already seen *tracyjb's work in some way or another. I have admired her work for a long time. Her characters are always so lush and detailed, and on top of that they fit perfectly in the time frame and situations they are presented in. Lackadaisy Cardshark is a really great display of her characters, and a great example of the hard work poured into every deviation *tracyjb submits.

I think it's perfect. I especially love the attention given to the fur. What tool did you use to get that because I just started doing digital works and that's one of my problem areas.

I love comparing full color drawings like these to the ones you do of them as humans.
And a -very, very- late congrats on another daily deviation. If it hadn't been for your Lackadaisy Halloween one being selected, I never would've found this amazing magnus opum of yours!

The detail is simply stunning. Words cannot begin to describe how wonderfully drawn this is. The anatomy, light and shading are all perfect. It holds a somewhat three-dimensional appearance that is very captivating. The eyes seem so life like and it's as if they really stare at you. All this while still keeping a fantasy air with a hint of realistic. Beautiful, amazing.
