Origins - Shadows of History by Rick Davidson

Unread postby sms69x » Tue Jul 05, 2016 3:52 am  



The Great Maester Rick Davidson is working on is next deck on the Origins series, this time is called Shadows of History and will have some nice colors added to it.

I'm getting in touch to let you know development is now underway on a new deck in the Origins Playing Cards series. As a subscriber you get a first preview of the Teaser video and early concept art below.

16th century playing cards evolved to become the standard art we know today. The Shadows of History art draws directly from details and colours in these rare historic originals to create a vibrant new deck.

The Shadows of History deck will be printed on the highest quality stock and encased in premium quality card, embossed and embellished with metallic foil. The cards will feature full colour art, updating and refining the art from the first successful Origins decks.

Agree, the black/gold on the outside, the gothic imagery with the angels and filigree, and the rich red on the inside is a beautiful combination, makes me think of Symphony of the Night:

+1 to this. The Origins deck is one of my favorites, in the top 3 of all time without a doubt and the only time I've bought a print from a campaign (that Queen of Clubs man, freaking beautiful). I do hope he's able to get this one out before 2017 though, considering how long we were teased with Origins before its campaign started. But perfection takes time.

This is so phenomenal. I love the idea of using the original cards the inspired the ones we know today. And, that Queen of Clubs is a really nice representation.

I hate to say it, but I kind of prefer the some things on the brown sample on the left, to the finished one on the right. The center is more interesting, being filled, and the colors are simpler. It's easier to look at than heavy gradients.
Regardless, I will be supporting this deck FOR SURE.

If you mean this image below, you should be aware the brown image on the left is from his 2014 completed deck and you should pick that up if you can! I do prefer the originals as well, but this is a very nice round 2 and is different enough to make it worth picking up as well. I also agree it's one of my all time favorite decks, everything about it is amazing! Expect to be much of the same.

Hi there! A little progress update on the face card artwork for the Shadows of History deck. All of the cards are getting 'facelifts', some more drastic than others. Line weights are being adjusted for impact, new details more accurate to the historic originals are being applied. Here is a working draft for the King of Clubs, next to the original First Edition king.

The original, even if it's the regular version, should be in every card collectors inventory. It's one of those decks where everything works.

I actually really don't like his courts at all, but I absolutely love everything else about the deck and can't wait for this next one!
