This is coming together rather nice! Love the QoH! But I also think that the green can be mutted slightly.

I agree that this deck is coming together quite nicely... as a Paul said, we are in good hands with Rick!

Also, no need to mute the green backs...just make them FOIL! :ugdance:

Very nice deck so far. I agree with the others about the green.

Personally, I think the green on the tuck render is a good shade, just needs some dark/black elements to give it some more depth.

I am in. But, I am more IN with foil backs of any shade you want. :mrgreen: The art so far for Queen of hearts, number cards and Ace of Spades is great.

Yeah, we are in good hands with Rick. The tuck rocks.

The QoH reminds me so much of Mr. Zorg without cigarette. :) Are my hopes for a Fifth Element movie deck coming true Rick? :lol:

Hi guys, Merry Christmas!

Thanks for the great feedback, appreciated and taken on. Have been buried in this project the last few weeks. Love the Fifth Element reference Rich haha I think that might actually have been some subliminal inspiration. I tried more than once to get the rights to a Bladerunner deck. No luck.

Have been working hard to get quotes for De Novo but I don’t think it’s the best time of year, clearly be waiting until after Christmas but will keep working on the art. I’ve completed concepts for all the face cards but not happy just yet. I’ll post something soon. But here are latest concepts for the two tucks and backs. I’d also love foil backs..

I'm coming around to these. I guess the shock of the green back knocked me momentarily senseless. It still doesn't look right if you ask me, but maybe I'm just remembering the Edgy Bros UC green deck last year - which was fantastic - too fondly. Gotta hand it to you tho Rick, that green tuck looks amazing! To be fair you sold me a pair the moment I found out you were involved.

The darker green back looks much better than before. It must be tough picking a green since the UC banner is a fade from a darker to lighter green top to bottom.

Looking great, Rick!

As he noted, we decided to skip the holidays and we will be announcing more soo. I think it's a good decision. Several decent decks either didn't fund or barely squeezed by over the past month. Holidays just aren't a good time to crowd fund.

I prefer the darker green, too.
This deck is getting better and better. Great work, Rick!

Happy holidays to all!

Hi everyone, hope your year has started well :)

Ok first look at the initial concepts for the court cards for De Novo. These sets are for the two decks - the green Viridi deck featuring full colour art, the red/gold Aurum deck featuring a more traditional variation in metallic inks. Each of the suits represent different factions in a future world... Happy to hear your thoughts!
