Feedback on design

Unread postby pushkar000 » Thu Oct 12, 2017 10:33 pm  

Hi, I'm working on a deck design right now and I'd love if you guys could give me any feedback.

I know this forum is mostly for custom decks with intricate artwork and completely altered cards which is not what I'm doing but hopefully you folks can spot any general inconsistencies or other issues that I am unable to see.

The deck is for magicians. The goal is to have a back design that's completely unsuspicious, doesn't distract from the performance but still provides a positive visual stimulus in the spectator. It's going to be marked.

Courts are standard + recolor. Pips are smaller and the red ones are bordered. The accessories on the courts are colored differently - again, to provide a minor visual stimulus without being distracting.

I posted it on a magic forum and it was generally met with positive reviews. But I'd also like input from artists who are likely to be able to see things we can't. Please let me know if you feel like this is meeting my goal/if there are any issues/general opinion.

Edit : Prototype ace. Using a bird picture off the net to figure out placement etc. before I draw my own bird.

Thanks!

I like the blue back better. It fits the hair color on the courts better than the red back. I don't know if you could add a bit more blue on the body too. Adding the Jack's leaf or coloring the Queen's flower looks fine to me. Not sure about the white and gold feathers though. They pop so much it's all I see. I feel like the middle needs more too.

You've started something so best of luck!
Move on, nothing to see here.

I don't think the current back design is good. In general, back designs have fine lines and shapes. Yours looks like an art project or painting, on the smudgy side. No disrespect, just an opinion.
