INTRO & WHAT IS A SKETCH CARD?

:spotlight-left:TO ALL NEW VISITORS:spotlight-right:
:bulletred: PLEASE CLICK HERE TO READ GROUP GUIDELINES! :bulletred:
Especially before sending join requests!


This group focuses on sketch cards related to the trading card industry. That includes character media from comic books and movies, among others.

Members are: official artists working on licensed sets and/or established and recognized in the trading and sketch card collector community. The collector community refers to collectors of actual licensed and distributed trading cards and collectibles.

Fan, collectors and other artists please add the group to your Devwatch.

Sketch cards are 2.5" by 3.5" (some Official cards are 4" by 5" or 5" by 7" when uncut) pieces of original art usually created completely in traditional mediums such as pencil, ink, markers, paint and more. This makes each card individual and essentially one of a kind.

A sketch card can also be commonly referred to as a
PSC - Personal Sketch Cards

And sometimes (but rarely) as an
ATC - Artist Trading Cards

Our sketch cards are not ACEO's. Sketch cards are one of a kind original art and character specific, whereas an ACEO is a non-specific card that is reproduced (prints, copies, etc). This is NOT a generic ACEO/ATC group. Please keep this in mind before sending a join request.
Hey everyone! Its getting into the holiday season again, so its time for this year's community-wide Holiday Art Swap! :holly:

Its been an annual event on :devart: since 2006. Some of the previous years have seen several hundred artists participate, but since :devart: has been a little quieter than usual these days we need your help to make the event bigger and better than ever!

The event is fully hosted at its own group at :iconholidayartswap:


How does it work? Its easy: Participants are paired up randomly and do a gift art trade with each other. The gifts don't have to be holiday themed, you can request anything your partner is comfortable with doing. So if that's something you would be interested in taking part in, then please feel free to sign up (see link at the bottom).

Who can join in? While the event is open to any kind of illustrator, it is also open to writers, handcraft artisans, photographers, 3D artists, and others (anyone creative). It can be tricky to fulfill some wishes, but it's been really neat seeing artisans creating items like homemade scarves for their partners, photographers taking special shots for theirs, even writers creating short stories or poetry.

What is this event for? Its all in the spirit of giving to fellow artists, having fun and being sociable. Oftentimes its a great opportunity to make new friends and get to know artists and other creative people whom you might not have seen or spoken with before.


Now here's the thing: Signup is only open until December 6th, 2016

:holly: CLICK HERE TO SIGNUP & READ EVENT DETAILS! :holly:

If you have any questions about the event, the event blog is also a good place to leave them for the organizers.

And if you decide to participate, we recommend joining that group or adding it to your devwatch (especially the group's journals) so that you don't miss out on any updates. The entire event will take place on the HolidayArtSwap group itself.

Might be pissing in the dark here but I've been interested in creating Sketch Cards for awhile now, Comic artist Will Robson was my first exposure to it (On a live-stream)

Would any members of the group be able to quick fire some basic do's and don'ts for making sketch cards, it would be appreciated, cheers.

Hi, I have created a card game and I am looking for an artist to commission to follow a brief and draw the card art. This will include borders and icons too. Am I in the right place for this?
Thank you,
Sam

Hey guys! I just recently got into doing sketch cards and I was wondering if you had any tips or advice on what I should do ie. Commissions, pricing, finding collectors, etc. In the meantime, I'll check your journal posts in case you have already written something like this. Thanks for your help! :D
