Wow dude, I am brand new to this forum and I gotta say I love this sketch thread! Those are some beautiful cards man, I also really like the Elvin Hernandez cards I've seen on here.

I've noticed a lot of people using Photobucket on this forum, is that the preferred image manager? I've been using imgur but I think I would like to post some of my sketch cards in a thread and I'm not sure if you guys prefer one over the other.

When I need big images I use my Wordpress blog at sketchcardsaloon.com but if you only need smaller pics you can store and share here:

SketchCollectors.com: Everything Sketch Cards

That place is really fun.

Thanks--I appreciate it Yeah, Elvin Hernandez is an artist I've really taken notice of from what he did for premier.

As for what image manager to use--I've always used Photobucket, so it's just a habit for me. It does all I need and is easy for me to do uploads and manage what I have into subfolders. I've heard other people say they really like imgur, though.

Rian mentioned Sketchcollectors.com, which I think is a good idea as well if you will be focusing on sketch cards. I've set up an account there, but I was waiting until my collection stabilizes a bit before I copy my sketch card scans over there. I like that you can search by artist in other people's collections and it has a more standardized organization model than what you'd see in Photobucket, which of course works for them since it's focused on just one type of image.

Charles Hall - Black Cat (PSC)


Frank Kadar - Black Cat (Marvel Beginnings AP)


Now for the Premier goodies:

Kate Bradley - Thing


Jose Jaro - Spider-Woman

Mike Mayhew - Loki (love the crazy look in his eyes)


Puis Calzada - Elektra


Butch Mapa - Black Panther

Got a bunch of non-Premier stuff for today, so I'm going to break up the updates:

Wanted to check out one of those Z-card sketches from World of Fantasy, so picked up this Puis Calzada:


Not a sketch, but pretty cool nonetheless: Walking Dead #101 Ghost Variant CGC 9.8


Jason Adams


Discovered this new artist/seller Victra and loved her work on this Avengers Assemble sketch cover, so I went to her store and picked up a couple of her PSCs:





Charles Holbert did these



John Czop (love the look on Black Cat's face)


Kimberly Dunaway


Lak Lim

Stuart Sayer


Ashleigh Popplewell


Chris Foreman


Elvin Hernandez


Adriana Melo (love her work)


Mike Miller


Chris Foreman


Jaime Carrillo

So you're the one that picked up the Dunaway Domino! I had that thing on my watch list forever and I was still upset when it was gone!

It did give me the kick in the pants I needed to buy a couple others I had been watching for a while though

Yeah she is one of my favorites. I had never seen her pencil work before I saw this card. I shot her an email and it turns out she did a bunch for the set, but I haven't seen any others pop up since. Of course, I love her crazy whimsical color stuff too! Maybe I'll pick something up tonight

I see you picked up a few Cherry cards. I started with Marvel, picked up a few Shi and now I'm totally addicted to the 5finity stuff! I'm waiting on a couple of AEs and then I'm going to post my Cherry set (at Scoundrel).

Yeah, I'm sort of taking a sample of several different sets and companies to see what I like right now. The 5finity stuff is fun and also nice when you don't have a lot of money you can get some pretty good stuff.

I look forward to seeing your set

Yeah the 5finity stuff is cheaper for the most part, but there are artists/cards that pull a pretty nice buck for a single panel. If your interested you should email Steve about getting on his mailing list for the next release. Also, check out the Perna Studios thread over at Scoundrel. That stuff looks pretty good. I'm going to try and get in on the upcoming Spellcasters set.

Got a bunch of Premier and non-Premier to scan in, so just doing the non-Premier tonight.

Billy Martin


Here's one of Frank Kadar's 2 AEs for Lady Death (picked up the other one tonight)


For these next 2 from Nevermore Alice, I thought it would be neat to get this one subject and two different takes on it by two artists I really like.

Lak Lim


Tim Proctor


I know from an artistic standpoint, realism is not the highest measure of artistic ability, but sometimes it's pretty damn impressive especially when it's not of something real and it's on a tiny sketch card

With that introduction, I give you this PSC from Charles Hall that I'm still not sure how I got it for $50 in all it's Badass Yoda glory

It really is amazing. I don't love everything he does, but the stuff I like I really like. His PSCs are really not that bad pricewise either. And it seems you can get his commission auctions for around $50-75.

Mike Mayhew's sketches are some of the best. He's such a great artist.

You're not the only one I didn't see this one on eBay at all though. Did you pick it up elsewhere? Nice grab.

A lot of really nice additions today.
