Before that I'll need to do an in-between pass for balancing of all the illustrations. That will take care of making sure that all of the hand drawn text is the same font, that there are no misspelling, and that illustrations are really what we want to bring to the color phase.
During this in-between pass I'll also be dealing with creating the back of the cards, and yesterday I made the decision for the background pattern I will be using. It took a bit longer then I anticipated to lock that down, but it's no surprise. Design is something that works or doesn't and you keep at it until you have the feeling that the image works for the project. Many are the times when I've done appealing designs that unfortunately didn't match the project, and out the window the design goes.
Enough blabber here are some of the cards I've inked recently.
Before that I should say… as a promotional effort…
