Super fun. That brass case looks sexy!

In case you couldn't tell, meeting Ryan was one of my highlights at last year's 52 + Joker Convention.

Deck Reviews! / Decks which last the longest and handle great
« Last post by amalolan on January 19, 2017, 01:40:21 AM »
I am looking for decks that last a while. In my area, most decks cost an extra of around 10$ (due to shipping) except the bikes which go for 3$. I am kinda new to cardistry so I'm not that comfortable spending 20+dollars on a deck of cards which won't last me long enough. Any deck which lasts long and has good handling is fine by me.

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

Design & Development / Re: From Whimsical Teapots to Playing Cards - The Beginning

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:
