For those of you whom I met in Porto last week, I was trying to explain what sketch cards are and give an idea of work I’ve done before. But it’s easier to show you. :)
Here’s a sample of sketches included with the trading card set for Topps & New Line Cinema Lord of the Rings:
There are more HERE and HERE.
‘No visitors, well-wishers, or distant relations!’
‘Farewell, dear Bilbo’
‘Realm of the Lord Celeborn…’
‘This is no mine…’
‘Why do you lay these troubles on an already troubled mind..’
‘City of Kings.’
‘Perhaps you’ve come to tell me why my son is dead..’
‘The dead do not suffer the living to pass.’
‘Do you not know death when you see it, old man?’
The Host rides to the Black Land
The White ship into the West.
‘…he’s known as Strider’
‘…forsaking the immortal life of your people’
..He is burning. Already burning!’
‘Your son is badly wounded, my lord..’
‘There will be no dawn for Men.’
The lighting of the beacon
‘Let him go, you filth!’
‘I summon you to fulfil your oath!’
(Aragorn): ‘Fight for me and I will hold your oaths fulfilled! What say you?!’ ‘…We fight.’
The black-sailed ships
The town of Bree
‘Bring forth the Ring, Frodo’
Light in the dark
The Fellowship mourn
“Govannas vîn gwennen le, Haldir o Lórien.”
‘The Pillars of the Kings!’
The Black Gate is shut.
‘There is nothing for you here, only death.’
‘Leithio i philinn!’
‘Who enters my domain?’
The Dead Army swarm the enemy
‘I do not believe this darkness will endure.’
‘I can’t carry it for you…’
A long-awaited reunion.
And some of the sketches for various Star Wars sets for Topps and Lucasfilm :
There are (many) more here for the Empire Strikes Back, and here for the animated Clone Wars series (which I really enjoyed), and here for all the Star Wars things before the new movies.
Amidala stained glass miniature
Leia stained glass miniature
Han Solo stained glass miniature
And here’s a sample of the tarot cards (major arcana only) I was asked to make for the Penny Dreadful set, based on the themes & symbols of the show, but not using the actors’ likenesses.
You can see more about these particular cards HERE, there are many more which I still need to upload to my site!
