Sketch Card trading - Oran Parker
I got a note from another sketchcard artist named Oran Parker, (Check out his site http://www.oranparker.com/ ) who wanted to know if I would trade cards with him. After checking out his stuff, I said Yes right away. He requested Beta-Ray Bill, Abe Lincoln and Hawkman. None of which I had any experience with, but I thought this would be a great deal. I had a bunch of things going on travel-wise (see Korea blog-post) so I wasn't able to get to them finished right away. I saw the cards he did (see his blog post about the trade) and I knew I was going to need to up my game. Anyway. I did one of Abe Lincoln "Vampire Slayer", A raging Bill, and Golden Age Hawkman and Hawkgirl. I did the Lincoln on tan card stock to give it a vintage feel. I wanted the Hawkman to still feel Golden-Agey so I tried to do it in that style. I just wanted Bill to look as pissed off as I could. I did an earlier one, that I will post later, but in the pencils stage, I creased it doing some erasing and so I had to start over again. I actually did another Abe, but I didn't like the feeling, so I redid it and I think this one is much much better. I hope he likes them!
