As much as we love Udon for providing all of the card art up until now, we’re bringing in Massive Black to provide a bit more. Below are 3 new characters from the upcoming pirate set. Let me know what you guys think!

I thought my input was of vital importance.

I think that the middle and first one doesn’t quite match the color/and shading that all the other cards but the styles match, or aren’t to different from the old ones, which is good I think the middle ones name should be Lass :3 she seems like a charmer wink.

Wow, those pictures are awesome, but will they look so good when they are scaled down to card size?

I will basically use the top guy in all my decks no matter what stats he has.

Lol I was thinking the same thing.

Scaled down they obviously won’t look as good. You can already see that with our current art, though (zoom in if your browser scales it down): http://img526.imageshack.us/img526/7853/ama3colors1mm1.jpg

The first guy? The last one is carrying a cauldron of cannon balls! Plus, he’s a god fearing man. Artillery and piety.

uh I’m pretty sure she’s wearing white leggings and spiky shoes like the other two

Yeah, they are just normal steamin’ hot fightin’ babes (does the phrase “femme fatales” fit here?) with spiky boots.

That stuff looks sweet. Can’t wait for more.

The Woman Pirate are very sweet and beautifull! Lets use it!

Very good art. But if I see/hear more Pirates today, my head is going to explode.

I wish there were “creature cards” or something now that would be cool like liger that a amazon can ride on the back of, awesome :P

There is shading. System failure.


Sweet.

I do really like these a lot, but not for what they’re being used for. That’s going to be weird when you get those two drastically different art styles together. It’s going to make the game seem a bit less uniformly put together. Not only art styles but the battle positions and the lack thereof. That first pirate is just asking for a free kick to the nuts. I definitely like the former art for the way kongai is set up. They have vivid colors which are emphasized better with darker shades and brighter harder highlights letting it sit more comfortably on the game’s background. I like these (especially the first) for admiring. These remind me a bit of my style. I think different art styles much of the time do fine together, but usually not when an anime style is in the mix.

Are you guys planning on having even more artists? I think since you’ve got these 2 styles already, even more of a variety could help.

Looks really, really good; however the difference in art style is fairly noticeable. It doesn’t match with what is currently used, so I don’t care for the inconsistency.

If we used this style first I would be saying the same thing about the Udon style. But you gotta do what you gotta do; not really a horrible thing. Very professional at least.

 
Flag Post

We actually mocked these up with some of the Udon art and it didn’t look that off at all. At least not to me.

The art looks great, but I think it’d look more like the other cards if they had outlines. That’s what I noticed about it first. Other than the difference in art though, the images rock.

Wish I could do art like that :P
