Yikes, my bad.  I hadn't realized I hadn't checked the forum for awhile.  I am getting some notifications. but not to all threads.  weird.  everyone should have my email addy by now, just email me if you want to get hold of me.

I've updated the list in the front.  cards are so cool 
WE'RE HALF DONE, 11 CARDS IN, 11 CARDS TO GO.  2 WEEKS TO GO.

last chance for the chariot

REMEMBER TO SEND ME THE HIGH RESOLUTION VERSION.  and if you could, add the title of the card on the card.

and, actually, if you want to send a version without the lines, that would be cool too.  i'd make it easier for me to match the lines up card to card.

i'm trying to add a low res version of judgment.  hope it works, it's a neat card

well, I don't WANT turtles, per sey, but if YOU want a turtle or two, I have no actual objection to a turtle.  It can even be a blond turtle.

Just as long as he has a title.

 
 
DEADLINE COMING UP QUICK.  TIME TO SEND THE HIGH RESOLUTION CARDS TO ME!!

 

DEADLINE IS JANUARY 31st

Ehm, just a quick question. The lines don't have to be a part of the actual design, do they? I have this great idea, but not sure if I could make the lines fit with it. And yeah, I now the deadline is coming... I guess I am one of those eternal procrastinators when it comes to making my cards. Hopefully in this coming week I finally get going :f:cc:z

tru, the lines are supposed to be on your card, if that's what you mean.  If you see the layout in the first posting, when we put all the cards together, the lines create the TCF Fool.  That's part of the 2011.5 idea.  Is that what you were asking?

No - I think she means do we have to create an image where the lines are - like, say - the edge of a house or something.

No ! (well, I didn't except for two of them !)

OK, so if you look at the Chariot I just submitted, the lines are just on top of the image. I kind of like the placement but they weren't necessarily a shaded belt-buckle, etc.

Hope that helps!

that's it!

there wil be two parts to this deck, the individual cards, then the picture when they are all put together.  I got the idea from the Minotaur deck.

Yeah, that is what I meant. Because I saw several imaged where the lines were really a part as well. So I just wanted to check to be sure.

Ok, overlay is ok, I can do that :hp

OMG, I am just such a...:f:f:f

 

I finally started work on my card today. Made a drawing, am reasonably happy with it.. and then I find out that I have been using a different paper size then the template...:ee:v:cc

I assumed we were using the same size as the other TCF decks... I guess we are not? This template looks longer and smaller...:n



Oh, and does anyone know how to make the template transparant.. the white I mean in photoshop. Because I am trying and not making it work yet...:ww

And another thing, does the card need to have the title on the card? Maybe that will actually save me...:sd

Truelighth - you have email. And yes - it needs to be the exact same size and shape as the template skad sent you.

Or scale it. Read your email - you can probably fit it in there and add some !

Yes it has to have the title :D (my revised one has it now.... I should maybe post it... Skad has the hi res one...) I wasn't happy that the light started so far from the lantern.

Actually now I want to change something else.... :cl

Hmm.. scale it... not sure if that will work or if the proportions will be all weird. I am already not sure if I want to use the actualy version I made (and scanned) or the colour corrected version (which is darker, but has more contrast).

I made a pastel drawing.. not so easy to just change that. But I will make it work... somehow...:ww:Z

the size of the cards was actually not arbitrary, but defined by the size and shape of the fool picture.

Ok, deadline approaching fast...:gi



And I managed to tweak and crop my original drawing so it would fit the format. And surprisingly, I am actually happy with the result.

(Btw, Skad, let me know if you prefer the hi-res with or without the lines):

So here is a bit of a different take on Temperance (idea thanks to my boyfriend):

Thanks. I will tell him. I told him I wanted to make Temperance and something with fire and water. And this what was he came up with... why don't you make a smithy, you have fire, you have water, you need to "temper" the metal.. well... here is the result.

Btw, the 4 of swords in the TCF II deck (sleeping cat with sun rising), was also his idea. I definately gonna pick his brain more often :cl

Good luck, Skad1!! :ok I know that kind of stuff is often hard to figure out. And yes, computers... but then again, my computer (and photoshop) saved my card this time :hp. I am looking forward to seeing them all!

I love that Star. It works really well with the lines too. I thought I better not use black&white, because of the lines, but so far I have seen several wonderful black&white cards that just work great with the lines. Great work!:ok

FINAL VERSION IN FIRST PST ON PAGE 1 (and second post, I had to cut it in half to fit in within forum size limits).  It's a low res version so final will look quite a bit better.  only one missing is Morwenna's, send healing thoughts to her computer.

I added titles to acouple. if you don't like them, send me an updated version and I'll swap them out.

And, yes, I know that Death has a few problems.  somehow the scaling of the lines got strange. :?  I've emailed blistersnbutterflies about it.

So, what to ya'll think?


After I posted this, I received the files from Morwenna.  It's somewhat appropriate that Death is the only remaining card, isn't it?

If you upload it to any photo hosting site (Flickr, Photobucket, etc.) and then use the [IMG] tag to insert it into a post, you can get the whole thing in one post.

Looks great, BTW.

WOW!! This is so cool to see altogether! I'm so impressed with the the work here!

So, Powers That Be, will we have the option as a deck too or will this be a poster-only?

I just looked at the cards at the start and it does really look wonderful.

Except... I noticed how my card looks. Temperance looks really weird. It has lost all the structure of the pastel and well, the drawing really isn't what it was. You can't even see or recognize the furnace anymore. And the subtle flickering of the light against the background has become orange blotches, there are other light blue blotches near the sea area... well, the whole thing just seems very blotchy, with some colours showing very much and others not at all anymore. It has lost all it's original structure.

So I really hope this is not the final version of the card for printing. :sd

 

As for the final format, I think I would prefer cards that I can put together if I wanted to.

If that is the case, then I am fine with it. As long as the final result is like it should be.

Yes, it is definetly better.  most of the high res cards I rec'd were too high to even post by themselves (if anyone wanted to) so you can imagine what the group size was. 

New top portion image with all cards accounted for. The dark lines weren't visible on the magician, so I made them a pale grey.  I also switched the title card to a linework view so there would be a better idea of what all the cards together should be.

There is a new bottom half also.  now you can see how neat the death card is. truelight's card looks better too.  it's still a very low res version of it, tho.

I am glad to hear that. I was first looking and thinking... wow. And then I saw that my card looked so weird. So I started worrying. But yes, if it is just because of the low resolution, then it would make sense. Pastel does seem to need a lot of detail and with the low resolution that is probably lost. Thanks for putting my mind at easy on this, Skad1.

And the new result looks great. You managed to fix the Death card too.. cool! I like the change to the title card, makes it easier to see the figure.

And yeah, you said most of the high res cards have too high a resolution to even post. That is true. I had to make a lower resolution Jpg to post on here. The original tif was huge. I actually also had to cut that down to send it to you.
