Process Post 40 - "Herald" playing cards!
 
I created this design to be used on the backs of playing card sets when playing our upcoming tabletop RPG,  

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ravendesk/herald-lovecraft-and-tesla-the-savage-worlds-table

We were successfully funded on Kickstarter (thanks to everyone who supported!) so now we've got TONS of work to do in creating the game. :) If you weren't able to get in on that Kickstarter action, don't worry - the game (and these cards) will be available though the Ravendesk website (http://www.ravendeskgames.com/) after its completion next year. 

Anywho, step 1: Thumbnail sketch - based on traditional Bicycle cards images, but with the Lovecraft & Tesla twist. 

Step 2: pencils (printed out the thumbnail sketch in non photo blue ink on 8.5x11" bristol) 

Step 3: Inked with microns and zebra brush pens 

Step 4: After scanning, I mirrored the border elements and added in the dot effects in Manga Studio. 

Step 5: Created a border - again like the traditional Bicycle cards one - in Manga Studio 

Step 6: Converted it to blue lines 

Thanks for your support! :D
