Generic background for card art

Postby Maike05 » Tuesday December 25th, 2012 8:04am

Hello guys, first of all thank you all for this tremendous work you've put together ! It really help me create some great cards!

Now I've a request, and I think it would help the creation of further cards. I would like to have clean generic backgrounds on which to put any new object. I'd like to have some generic empty tables, dungeon ground, grass, or cave walls.

This way, if I want to create a new potion for instance, i'd just have to get a copy of a clean background and put a separate object taken from the artchive gallery. do you understand what I mean ? :)

That would mean you'd get a deck of all sorts of items, but with one similar background, is that what you want?
If so, I might whip something up. If not, I suggest you use the already made backs for: potions / scrolls / artefacts / treasure / monsters / chaos spells / skaven spells / wizard and elf spells etc.
I like to split my items into decks for easier use. I can't use a deck with every sort of item all mixed together.

This could be very useful… in my opinion the best thing is to edit a HQ image and remove the main objects. I don’t have much time but I will try one card. I’ll try to remove the wolfsbane potion from the table of that card.

I'm not yet savy enough to create the cards efficiently, but here's a list of where to find suitable(?) source-images to choose from. I'll host them at my Flickr gallery for at least a few months to provide easy access to Inne image files. Anybody who is interested in helping out can simply hit a link and copy a file to make into into a background. I still need to add the EQP and BQP cards, but this was a lot of work and I'm not sure if anybody will actually want or need more links, much less those already posted here. And then there are the Gallery images with backgrounds to add. Perhaps I'll add them anyway for completeness, if I feel the need.

@Maike-
If you feel so inclined you could narrow down the use of this big list by posting just those images you are interested in. However, it isn't necessary if you are content to wait and see what comes your way.
