Lak Lim's Art Thread
I think I should start this thread with a little about myself. My name is Lak Lim and I am a freelance artist. I've worked on sketch card sets since 2008. I've been fortunate to have worked for many of the card companies on their respective card sets. I have cut back a lot on doing sketch card work so I can have the opportunity to work on other projects. I'm not on alot of the current sets but you'll occasionally see me on a set every now and then. I also run the Sketch Card Fanatics group on Facebook. As well as interviewing people on my blog SCF Talks. I will update this thread whenever I have something I want to share. Feel free to leave any comments (good or bad) or questions you may have for me. Thanks for looking and I hope you like what you see. Heres a few for now:

First up is a card I recently listed on Ebay. Its a recreation of Mike Zeck's popular Captain America Annual #10 cover. Drawn on a Captain America: First Avenger AP card:
Star Wars Galaxy6:
Some PSC samples I sent to Topps to get on Star Wars:

I haven't collected any of the Topps Start Wars stuff, but most of what I have read has been pretty bad. The complains are always louder and more passionate than the compliments... doesn't matter what the subject is. Glad to see that you took the time to do some really high quality sketches for the set.

Love your work Lak

Magickyak 03-13-2013 09:50 PM

Awesome stuff man, I'd love to pull one of your cards

Igman7 03-13-2013 10:04 PM

Man, what junk!

Just teasin' bud you know I think you are crack-a-LAK'n

Great work as always, Lak :D
And a great idea for a thread, so I'm stealing it ;)

Lak Lim 03-13-2013 10:55 PM

Thanks everyone, glad you like them. Not all of my cards are as highly detailed due to the number of cards I'm sometimes automatically given. (I wasn't aware that I had a choice with some companies) BUT they're good enough for me to have represent what I'm capable of. I usually spend an avg of at least 1 hour on a card and the more detailed cards will take a lot longer...obviously. Below are some my work on my first set for Rittenhouse: Marvel 70th Anniversary. I like to think that I improved since then ;p

Some great sketches there, thanks for sharing! It's also neat to see how your sketches have changed over time.

I don't know if you've seen many of your Kree-Skrull War sketches that have been pulled (since that set pretty much bombed), but I was lucky enough to pull this one a couple of weeks ago:

Awesome stuff Lak! Could you post all the Marvel Premier sketch cards you completed? I have a bunch of your sketches from this set and would love to see all the cards you did for the set.

JeffLafferty 03-14-2013 06:57 PM

Very cool work Lak!

Lak Lim 03-14-2013 10:11 PM

aggie4ever - Thanks, on that card I tried inking with a brush. I usually just use pens to ink.

mcguirem13 - Cool, I'll try to get some up soon

JeffLafferty - Thanks Jeff, I seen some of your youtube videos. You do great work.

I love this batch! I own 3 from this batch :)

Lak Lim 03-20-2013 04:29 PM

Thanks guys, only a few more cards left for the Premiere set. This is batch 5:


eldavojohn 03-21-2013 11:27 AM

Pulled one of your cards from my first case break (Galactic Files) and it ended up being one of the nicer sketches from that break:


Very clean, very meticulous, wonderfully proportioned, heavily enjoy it! Keep up the good work, I love what I see in this thread!

Lak Lim 03-21-2013 04:37 PM

Batch 6, one left:
eldavojohn - Glad you like it. However I'm sorry I didn't do better on that card. Deadline was pretty tight at the time. Not an excuse for it but I needed 60 cards done that week which resulted in what you got. I normally avoid doing head shots. Again, my apologizes.

Lak Lim 03-22-2013 03:28 PM

Here is the last of my 50 Marvel Premiere character cards:
