See, I've been in the middle of an ATC trade with the mega-talented Chrissie Altese, who I met through an ATC trade with the equally talented Wynn Ryder. Because I've been so busy lately that I'd failed to finish up her final card, but I made plans to get that done tonight.
After I finished up my days work, I logged in to my blog reader and noticed that Chrissie had posted the cards she had done for me over at her blog, and what a treat for the eyes! She completely nailed these cards. As I say almost every trade, I think I may have won out on this one. My little sketches are nowhere near as good as hers, plus she's fantastic with color (which I am not). I'm more comfortable using black and white, but I'm thinking I need to start stretching my color legs a bit in the future.
Anywho, here are the cards I did for Chrissie; Galactus, the Punisher and a character I'd never heard of before, Modesty Blaise. I'm going to throw in the first Galactus card that I did, for good measure. I was disappointed in it, but maybe Chrissie will like it (or she can trade it off to someone else).
Like I've said before, ATC trades are an enjoyable hobby. They allow me to meet some of the most friendly and talented people on the web, plus acquire several nice pieces of art in the process. There's much more to ATC trading than building a collection; it's about building relationships for me.
Make sure you stop by Chrissie's blog and check out the cards she did for this trade. I think you'll all agree, Chrissie Altese is one of the great ones. Thanks for stopping by!
