Talking Seven Deadly Sins: ENVY

Okay--thought this might be fun. We all have ideas about the favorite cards in our own collection, but what about the collection of someone else?

To play, you pick the top 3 sketches you *envy* from the previous poster's PC, you post a link to your sketch card PC and the next poster will pick out the top 3 sketches from your collection.

For example, if this collector was a member here, I'd pick these:

1


2


3


I'll kick it off My collection is here : SketchCollectors.com: Everything Sketch Cards

If this works, maybe I'll do another thread for some of the other deadly sins

One suggestion: if you're going to participate, perhaps post a holding message along with a link to your PC so someone else can get started on your cards and we're not duplicating efforts

Then once you pick your top 3, just edit the holding message

Someone else should probably choose from your stash. My newb eye gravitate towards those artists and their artwork on those cards above.

Nope--you did great. The whole point of this is to get a different perspective on your collection. Thanks for taking part in my little experiment

So I get to follow Rian Fike. Hmmm.... What does he have that I want? Lets start with his wife Its a shame she only did one set. I actually really enjoy her style. I love a solid pencil sketch. Nice job Optic Nerve! And this Danny Kuang Venom PSC is just nuts!



I know, I know... I totally passed on Nar, Perna, Acar, and a bunch of other typical choices. And now nobody can pick them because Rian is done. Hah!

Yep--I've got thoughts on all the rest. I'll be kicking off another in a few minutes.

I was trying to make this more of a group activity, but I think for the rest of the sins people can just post from their own collections or links.

Thank you. They are three of my favorites.

I'm glad to see this particular deadly sin going again I guess it wasn't my lack of desirable cards that stalled it after all

Thuy has an incredible Katie Cook collection! It would be too easy to pick the 14 card AP puzzle, so I will choose something else. Wow, also didn't realize he has a pretty impressive Sean Pence and Veronica O'Connell collection as well as several other artists. If you haven't had a chance to view his collection, I recommend taking at least a few minutes to look at part of it!



Because I love the Red Sonja set, and have always wanted to pull a Sean Pence sketch



Nar! What more needs to be said???



I'm a big fan of pretty ladies, and Veronica O'Connell does an amazing job drawing them


Ok, I lied, the Katie Cook 14 card puzzle is so crazy amazing, I had to include it as a bonus:





Here's a link to my cards on sketchcollectors.com, although I still need to add a ton of cards to it:
