I've known about ATCs for a few years now, but I never got around to making any...till now.  With Craftster comes many new opportunities, including ATC swaps, an event that my social network is sorely lacking.  I figured I'd share a few here, see what people think, cause if there is any place in the world where my art might be appreciated, it'd be Craftster  Smiley

(sorry for the fuzziness, a slight headcold is wreaking havoc on my balance and coordination - makes my hands all shaky)

My favorites, thus far:



Here's a closeup of the center one (my favorite of the three) :



They look good separate, but they're meant to go together...here's what they look like connected:



All of the colors are rather oversaturated - my camera can't handle them  Roll Eyes
They look a lot cleaner and more distinct in real life.

So whaddya think?
Would they be appreciated in a swap?

*EDIT*
these 3, plus 11 other cards now posted here

Fine by me, poo head (I like your name).

I have visions of painting out huge pictures, cutting them into ATCs, then shipping a different piece off to people all over the world...makes me feel part of some weird treasure hunt...if you wanted a complete picture, you'd have to swap continually to finish the puzzle.

But, then again, I'm a nerd...that idea might drive others bonkers...

atc- artist trading card check this out http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=53197.0

the idea of sending them to different people to swap amongst (sp?) themselves or whatever sounds way too complicated for me, but i tend to  be slow when it comes to other people's ideas, just like many are confused by mine. i think it's an artist thing... not that i'm an artist, but ya know
