The feedback for all of this has been really overwhelming, I am so happy with all the positivity and feedback we are receiving.
We are redesigning the back to make it a little more traditional, the original back design I posted, we do still have some plans for that for within the project, don't want to say too much, just in case we hit any bumps in the road. don't want to set an expectation only for it not to go through.
In regards to the suits you mentioned that are a little bit off centre, is anyone else having this issue seeing it tilted? I think I can make out on one of them, my eyes are playing games though lol anyone who sits in front of a computer for a living knows what I am on about lol
Yes, the AoC is something that seems out of place at first. The idea is that, during the Edo period, when Tokugawa Ieyasu officially took over, he restored order within Edo, tranquility set in. The Koi are meant to represent that.
Throughout the deck, we are aiming to represent over 250 years, from the battle of Sekigahara to just before the Meiji Restoration.
We are using the crest for other part of the deck and tuck, and also using the crest as part of add ons that we have in mind. We didn't really want to over do it with the crest too much.
We are experimenting with the background of the court cards, looking to incorporate a background design to fill the negative space. We did enlarge the image, but with some of them, when enlarged, the weapons are cut off.
It's definitely something we are working on and trying to perfect as much as we can
I'll pop in and out with updates, on tuesday I will be posting more images.
Thank you again guys, for all the support
