The “Telltale Deck ‘o Cards” Project

posted by divisionten on - last edited by Jennifer - Viewed by 23K users
A small group of fanartists on the Sam and Max forum recently made a really awesome fanart calendar. But Telltale is so much more, and the forum members are also really diverse and talented. So why don’t we undertake something a bit bigger- like a full 54 card (A-K and two Jokers) deck of cards?

This is not intended for sale- just a fun fanart project for everyone to do!

So that we have some degree of order, here are…

DA RULES:

1. All cards are to be 750 pixels wide by 1050 tall. Essentially, a standard poker sized 2 ½ inch by 3 ½ inch card at 300 dpi. Please upload your finished card to an image-hosting site like Imageshack, and give us all a link.

Since there has been a little confusion- 72 dpi is what home printers and the internet use (and it's the default for Photoshop), but good commercial printers use 300 dpi- and that's usually the standard used by scanners and digital cameras, too. I picked the resolution I did so that regardless of whether you use inches or centimeters, and regardless of your grahic program's settings, we'll have uniformly sized cards.

2. One character, one card. So that we don’t end up with a deck half full of Nelson Tethers, once a character is claimed it’s out of the pool of options. However, characters that have more than one distinct model (human versus demon LeChuck come to mind, or Sam versus a doggleganger), may be treated as spearate characters.

3. Choosing a card: When choosing a card, name the card you’re doing and the character. If you’re doing a joker, pleae mention whether you want the red or black one. First posted, first served.

4. You have three weeks to finish once approved. If you’re not done, tell us that you’re still alive or something. If we haven’t heard from you, the card and character you picked go back into the pool for someone else to choose if they want.

5. Your card must contain the suit and number somewhere on its face. Where, or how large, is entirely up to you. Jokers can say “Joker” or have some other kind of indication without words, but must specify the color somewhere.

6. Other than the size of the card, and that it contains its number and suit, your card can look however you please so long as YOU MADE THE ART ON THE CARD. But don’t limit yourself to just drawing- a photograph of cosplay, a diorama, sculpture- anything goes! Be creative!

7. If you're done with your card and you'd like to make another, feel free..

LASTLY, 8. THIS IS NOT A CONTEST. This is a collaborative project for fun. If you want to participate, pleae do! Be creative, enjoy it, and if you follow rules 1-6, you’re set. There are no prizes, there are no awards. This is just a chance to make something really cool with your fellow forumites.

  • Can I do homsar and senor cardgage as the jokers?

    I think it's one card per person..
  • Ok, no problem. That's fair. Can I do Senor Cardgage as either a Joker or one of the Kings? Whichever you guys think would be a better fit.

    Hey Spinky, I think there's two Jokers - and one's possibly already taken. So take your pick QUICKLY! ;)

    Here's the rundown, because I am mortally afraid to edit divisionten's initial post and mess stuff up:

    Heart: 6, 8, Q, A
    Spade: J, K,
    Diamond: Q
    Club:
    Jokers: 1 (?Max?)

    Characters: Charlie Ho-Tep, Hidden Person, Morgan LeFlay, Satan, Stan, Sammeth, Sybil Pandemik, (Max?).
  • Well, I'll take the Jack of Clubs for Superball if nobody minds? Just seems like a nice fit :)
  • Ok. I'll do Senor Cardgage as the King of Hearts.
  • I'd love to get in on this, but I can't really do anything but sprite art. Maybe later I'll see if I can think of one of the Homestar characters to try and do in 8-bit.
  • Just woke up. (timezones, remember?) This is lookin pretty good, guys! I'll go back and edit the initial post.

    And, as for now, one card a person. Doesn't need to be complex- remember it's not terribly big!

    EDIT: People really seem to like face cards. And, to whomever made a Max joker- does it fit the size requirement? If the answer is yes- please! If no, you are welcome to make another. Let me know. As of now, it's yours, but I'm not marking you down for it until you tell me.
  • Someone has to make one of those cheesy instruction cards too for total authenticity.

    Its even better if its in engrish, (you know those cards are going to be so naughty! A-chica-chica-CHICKOW!! XD).

    I think it's too big. Which is too bad, I really like it =/
