3x Galen's Contemporary Pinups Holiday Edition sets
Saw these on sale last week on Scoundrel Art, with a limit of 3 sets per person, so I decided to try some. You get a 39 card set of base cards, plus a sketch. And in about 1 in 3 sets you get an extra sketch, either because it's a puzzle (1 in 5 packs) or you get an extra sketch from the first CP set (1 in 10 packs). I beat the odds and 2 of the 3 sets had an extra sketch.
Ashleigh Popplewell holiday sketch
J.D. Seeber original CP sketch
holiday sketch by unknown artist (not signed)
The Seeber sketch has some amazing detailing, it's hard to believe you can do so much with just a pencil! Here's a larger scan of the sketch:
I also got this amazing puzzle sketch:
George Webber 2-card holiday sketch puzzle
Geat sketch, and the planets and red highlights are in a sparkly metalic ink, hopefully you can see that in the pics. Had to edit it slightly, apparently a cold front went through Austin, since there is a bit of a nip in the air.
Very happy with my pulls, definitely wish I could have purchased more sets. Ken Galen is also a great guy, the sets were $35 each, but he did 3 for $100 including shipping since I was a new customer. From the info he posted on Scoundrel Art, apparently each artist did a single holiday puzzle sketch, and I ended up with a great one. Also, some artists sent in their sketches too late for the original set, and so those sketches were inserted in this set. So I've seen some other great Seeber sketches being pulled from these.
I've also added thumbnails of the sketches to this post, since yesterday someone mentioned that my pics wouldn't load for them.
