Thanks again guys for the feedback! I'm working on making adjustments and will hopefully post a few updates in the next day or two.

I'll whole heartedly agree with Fess, all the changes have been positive.  This deck is on track to be top notch.

I was introduced to the forum when I joined 52+Joker. I love reading all the posts here; I will get more involved and interactive soon!
Fabulous job on the whole deck.   It looks fantastic.  If i may make a wee critique of the jokers, here is my take.  I love that you have incorporated the black cards and red cards into the two jokers along with the angular aspect for the red and the curvy aspect for the black.  I like the pips at the end of the jester cap on the black but not on the red.  It seems haphazard.  Maybe using one as an earring and the other to top the jester cap perhaps.  Just my two cents and it may not even be worth that much as it is so minor.

This deck is great all the way. I'll agree with the basically insignificant critique from Helshawk. When seen side by side, the hearts and diamonds look a little off on the joker. I think that's partly because the red suits are "attached" to the jester's hat in a different spot than the black suits are. The hat (curling up vs. down) emphasizes it. Seen apart from each other, I don't notice it.

Thank you Helshawk and skinny :) So glad you pointed out the hearts and diamonds on the Joker hat - something was bugging me, but I was a little too lost in the detail to see. I'll definitely have a play around and post an update very soon. I like the earring/hat idea, thank you :)

This is going to sound ridiculous but I managed to break my finger last weekend (on a bushwalk - clambering up a rock, which wasn't a particularly clever thing to do...)! Luckily it's a clean break and will heal fine - I just have to be patient, which isn't the easiest  ???  ::) Drawing for the card back is underway and while I'm 'strapped' I will keep working on the ideas in my head. :)

I put some drawing images up on my art blog if you want to revisit the pre-painted stage of the artwork:

Thanks for stopping by

Not having seen your design it is hard to give specific advice :) I agree with Helshawk, there are lots of tutorials online - if you include Gimp in your search you should come up with some useful and inspiring tips - and having put time and effort into the cards, you want to make the back your own :)

Things are looking nice. The changes have been positive in my opinion. I do not believe the cardback is too busy. The negative space is used in a tasteful manner that flows well with your theme. Dimming the green glow behind the title of the deck on your tuck is nice. I also think the enhancement to the hex pattern on the tuck box addresses that very well.

One thing I would like to draw to your attention if the offset illusion of the K on your Kings indices. May want to take some time to center the negative space on the bottom of the letter with the top center of the pip under it. This will help with the feeling of polish. Also any number cards where the font is shifted to one side should have a little extra care.
Hi All,

Production is looking good and here is a picture straight from Production.

Latest KS update has got a video and few more pics. Link below.

I'm looking into options that would allow me to actually change the flow of the figures without having to rework the image.  If I can implement something that looks good I'll have to make some adjustments; it's likely though I may have to just wait until a new deck of cards.  In the meantime here are a few additional updates including the Clubs and Aces.



Oh, and I adjusted the King of Diamonds and Spades to extend past the top and bottom edges of the rectangle.

Ah, I see what you did with the court cards!  Very cool.  Eager to see how you handle that with the clubs.  I only have one suggestion and that is with the K of Hearts and Diamonds. The other king and all the other face cards extend beyond the background frame on top/bottom.  I would like to see the KofH and KofD also follow suit. 
Hello everyone,

I have an eBay listing active for two rare low number Aurum decks by Encarded.

Thanks for looking,
