There is less than 6 months to go before the 2012 CON is upon us!
Well - maybe not just yet, but look how fast the 1st 2 months of 2012 have gone by... So consider this thread well and truly bumped
Now, although we have our 'generic' decks for use at the Con there's still the greater forum project to realise and if our arty types who've already stepped up to the plate for this are still interested
then now would be a great time to start work on your allocated suits but...
There's also the original idea for people to design character cards on the fly that aren't necessarily 'themed' in any way and can be mixed and matched. What would people like to do about that as this thread is largely here to be used as the boutique catalogue for bespoke Discworld playing cards?
For starters I'm making the card templates I've used for the convention deck available for download in here (face side anyway) together with my own disk-themed back design - these will also go in the opening thread post as well so everyone can find it in future. Now, for our artists the face template is designer sized to fit the A4 print layout I have for the court cards in the Discworld suits. The aim for this is for you to simply to use it for your own character fanart and by posting it in here, to share it with everyone else on the forum.
As the portfolio builds up I can then send the A4 deck layout templates to people on demand (by PM only) to make and print their own card sets on a mix and match basis
We're not breaking any copyright laws if no money changes hands and the bulk templates are only available to forum members so even if you're not artistic you can have a go yourself or just pick and choose from what's posted to transfer and scale into the layouts.
