The “Telltale Deck ‘o Cards” Project

posted by divisionten on - last edited by Jennifer - Viewed by 6.3K users

A small group of fanartists on the Sam and Max forum recently made a really awesome fanart calendar. But Telltale is so much more, and the forum members are also really diverse and talented. So why don’t we undertake something a bit bigger- like a full 54 card (A-K and two Jokers) deck of cards?

This is not intended for sale- just a fun fanart project for everyone to do!

So that we have some degree of order, here are…

DA RULES:

1. All cards are to be 750 pixels wide by 1050 tall. Essentially, a standard poker sized 2 ½ inch by 3 ½ inch card at 300 dpi. Please upload your finished card to an image-hosting site like Imageshack, and give us all a link.

Since there has been a little confusion- 72 dpi is what home printers and the internet use (and it's the default for Photoshop), but good commercial printers use 300 dpi- and that's usually the standard used by scanners and digital cameras, too. I picked the resolution I did so that regardless of whether you use inches or centimeters, and regardless of your grahic program's settings, we'll have uniformly sized cards.

2. One character, one card. So that we don’t end up with a deck half full of Nelson Tethers, once a character is claimed it’s out of the pool of options. However, characters that have more than one distinct model (human versus demon LeChuck come to mind, or Sam versus a doggleganger), may be treated as spearate characters.

3. Choosing a card: When choosing a card, name the card you’re doing and the character. If you’re doing a joker, pleae mention whether you want the red or black one. First posted, first served.

4. You have three weeks to finish once approved. If you’re not done, tell us that you’re still alive or something. If we haven’t heard from you, the card and character you picked go back into the pool for someone else to choose if they want.

5. Your card must contain the suit and number somewhere on its face. Where, or how large, is entirely up to you. Jokers can say “Joker” or have some other kind of indication without words, but must specify the color somewhere.

6. Other than the size of the card, and that it contains its number and suit, your card can look however you please so long as YOU MADE THE ART ON THE CARD. But don’t limit yourself to just drawing- a photograph of cosplay, a diorama, sculpture- anything goes! Be creative!

7. If you're done with your card and you'd like to make another, feel free..

LASTLY, 8. THIS IS NOT A CONTEST. This is a collaborative project for fun. If you want to participate, pleae do! Be creative, enjoy it, and if you follow rules 1-6, you’re set. There are no prizes, there are no awards. This is just a chance to make something really cool with your fellow forumites.

  • So we're no longer making Guybrush the king to Elaine's queen of diamonds? I know it seems Tope isn't doing that card anymore, but I thought we paired Guybrush to that card before Tope ever took up the task. I would've put Ash on the ace of clubs.

  • I thought about that as well, but then I saw that Guybrush was in another slot to Tope, so I grabbed the last King there was.

    If anyone still wants to do Guybrush on a king, I'm willing to move King Graham. I was never happy with the way the card turned out and my new card idea takes place when he was Sir Graham.

    Crap! Ive still got my cards to do. Guess I have to start over. I can easily do a GLaDOS card, I've drawn her playing poker before... now to find the file...

  • I hope, if the deck is finished by the end of April, it can be included in a patch as an unlockable deck. I wish I were good at art. I can do ideas and be a backseat driver but not the important bit.

    Yeah, might wanna do that...

    Now that The cancellation of King's Quest is official, I'll just pull King Graham from the deck altogether. :(

    Because of that, I also pulled out Yoshiwam's Rosella card too. :( I'm keeping the card and number up though, because I've sent a PM and want to see if Yoshiwam is interested in making a new card/updating the card with a new character.

  • So, all we know is following Fables at this stage is Walking Dead 2. I think I'll hibernate after Fables.

    I really liked your Anemone card, and thought it was great as it is.

    I actually have a version of it edited to fit to the card size in my Telltale Deck folder on my computer. :)

    It's been over a year since a new card has been made, so I figure it's about time for a new one.

    card

    Here's the full size card.

    If anyone still wants to make a card, there's a lot still up for grabs. All of Telltale's original characters for The Walking Dead, most of The Wolf Among Us (minus Flycatcher), Ash Williams, The Heavy, GLaDOS, Brock Samson, and Claptrap, Fiona and Handsome Jack, and anyone from Game of Thrones. Plus, a whole bunch of other characters from series that have already had a card like Guybrush, everyone from Hector besides Hector, and a ton more. So, there's a lot of space still available if you want to make a card.

    Hopefully someone else will take a card, but if not, I'll keep chipping away at them. I really want to see this get finished some day.
