I first did a large background with inks, stamps and water color. Cut up the backgrounds to the sized then layered with images and more ink, stamps and watercolor. I added some gold acrylic paints to enhance some of the work like Gustav Klimt did.

These are artist trading cards for a swap. They are snow kings. I tried a different style and technique from what I usually do. They are similar to the ones I made earlier (see below). I used Primsacolor markers to draw in picture, then with a .005 Micron pen went in the marker lines to add some extra detail.

I use to doodle all the time with ball point pens. This is an artist trading card, for a swap ball point pen only medium. I love the effect of the pen skipping ink in the foreground. My inspiration was through some photographs of New Mexico.

I am making a commitment to post art at least once a week. For this week are three artist trading cards I made to swap out. I usually use my very small Micron pens to draw, so these are pushing me to try something new.
I lightly drew out my pictures in pencil then outlined everything in Primsacolor markers. I went back with smaller ink pens to put in the tiny details. The last thing I used was a Q-tip with dry inks to make the cheeks.
