Yeah, I only found a few of his other sketches and they were pretty standard. Do you have a scan of the other one of his you picked up? Or be sure to post it when you get it in and I'll check back lol.

Still goin' strong on the sketch cards I see... Nice additions, as usual. I was hoping for more Poison Ivy stuff to show up but, I think people are hanging on to them. On to Plan B and commissioning an AP...

Yeah, honestly I'm not super impressed overall. I don't think Charles Hall did his finest work on this set, IMO. Which is okay because I really don't need to buy any more of his sketches right now anyway

Yeah, I think APs may be the way to go on this one. Doesn't seem like many people are breaking or if they are they aren't listing on eBay. You can really see the impact of not having UD pushing the product or it not having the RA-like case incentives in terms of what's listed.

I know people bitch about the big breakers, but this is what you get when they aren't heavily breaking a product.

Yep, I was thinking the same thing on the Batman product. I actually really like many of the sketches coming out of there but, I have to limit my collection focus so I just want to get a really nice Poison Ivy or two and leave it at that. You can really tell the artists put in some effort on this set, though. Good to see.

I'm selling a Catwoman and will soon have a Batman and Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn AP's up for sale. Only 2 of my 6 AP's will be males. Any suggestions as to what the characters should be doing is welcomed. Batman will be perched on a Building and Joker acting the Loon. Not sure what to have Ivy and Harley doing. Last AP will probably be a 3 female card as may be the Harley and Ivy May just do that for the rest of them so the buyer(s) get more bang for the bucks.

That Catwoman is awesome

I look forward to seeing the others

Not sure what the rules are, but if you can do an action scene with Batman and one of the major villains that would be very cool.

Yeah we can do whatever as long as it's not outside the rules and characters together is up to us., Probably paint them all instead of using ink but need to have cleaner drawings for that.

Actually I thought the eBay turn out on sketches was pretty good so far. Don't get me wrong, I'm not overly impressed with the quality, but the quantity is more than I expected this quickly. RA Marvel products are the only ones that produce that big boom right up front - because those big breakers get all their stuff in advance and have it all busted, identified, sorted, priced, and ready to list on release day. Everything else is more of a trickle (look at UD MB3 for example). The breakers don't necessarily get it on release day and most of them work a regular job and have to do everything in the evening/weekends. I would expect a slow and steady stream of sketches for another couple of weeks.

That Catwoman is INSANE. Definitely top 5 of what I have seen so far, if not straight-up #1. Looking forward to that Harley Quinn!

Thanks Spider-fan, I did the entire thing live yesterday on my artcast. Oh and Tim Proctor was doing an artcast earlier today on Ustream, He was working on the viceroy Space cards. Man is talented.

Thanks--I wanted to get that Engstrom Batman but someone beat me to it. It does happen to me sometimes too

BTW, I've got some sick APs on the way from Elvin Hernandez and George Webber. Can't wait to see them in person!

I have been dragging a$$ on buying these, no good reason why!

Got to remember they are 1/1, so can't wait for another to pop up

I love the Engstrom Bats! Snoozed on that too...

Caught a bit of your webcast - logged in just before you started painting... still haven't gotten around to registering so I can chat.

Nice pick-up on the Joker. I saw your post over at that other forum... guess it was for sale

Can't wait to see your Webber. Just saw another one of his Cherry AEs and it was freakin' awesome. I really dig that guys stuff!

I love the Sara Richard Joker sketch!

BTW, last night I finally found the Marvel Bronze Age Ghost Rider sketch I was originally supposed to send you in our trade. Somehow it got mixed up in a bunch of junk GU/Autos that I planned on selling as a lot. Good thing I checked it last night...

Before I get to the cards, I have a little announcement.

It's funny how life pushes you in certain directions sometimes, but let me back up for a second. As you guys can probably tell, once I get into something I go for it with a slightly insane intensity. That's good when it comes to some things, but not so good when it comes to things that cost money

Anyway, after putting all my cards into SketchCollectors I realize, "Geez, I have a ton of money tied up in sketches that I like but don't really love." Some of that just has come from all I've learned these past few months--my tastes have been refined as I've learned more about the hobby, the artists, the techniques, and other collectors. Others I've been holding on some just to keep the 2 Marvel Premier character sets I built, which I realize was fun to build but not so much fun once I had it done. So, I decided I'm going to be breaking those up.

I knew I should pare down my collection to just the cards I have to keep, but I also have a hard time letting go of things I've collected. Then yesterday I got some potentially bad news--not health related or anything like that, but news that makes me realize the prudent thing to do is to sell some of these cards I don't really, really want to both be a smarter collector and to get some money together that I might need.

So, basically, this is the answer to the "Why?" question I know I would be getting once some of these cards hit eBay tonight and this weekend.

I also know there's nothing worse than the guy with the PC du jour who suddenly cashes out after taking advantage of deals that he got because of his PC. Nothing I'm selling was part of the group of cards that some very nice people gave me good deals on. If one of them are from that group, then it was a mistake--please don't be offended and let me know and I will take it down. Nothing I'm selling was commissioned--those cards are very special to me and if I ever sell those it's because I've sold everything else at that point

I will still be getting cards now and then, just obviously not at the pace that I have been. And I've still got some that I've purchased or commissioned on the way

Okay--so now that's out of the way, on to the new cards

After several weeks, these APs from Elvin Hernandez were finally approved. I love them!



From Batman

Tom Nguyen


Jezreel Rojales



From Bronze Age

I know how hard it is to give up a sketch card, even if you don't like it all that much. Good luck with your sales. Hopefully you don't take too big a hit on anything.
