    Thanks! I always liked the looks of those old sticker cards.

    No sticker version, but I made another card! (Two cards in one month...? What's this world coming to!?)

    Weedle was my second Shiny ever.

    EDIT: Updated the trainer icon and made the English version holo and switched the template with my custom Neo-Gym template.

      I've been a secret admirer of your work for ages now, but this is the first time I've wanted to say something. I love your fake cards. They're all so beautiful and well-made. <3 Good job man! =)

        That makes me so happy! Thank you, and I'm glad you enjoy my creations! :D

        Hopefully it won't take a terribly long time before I make more. I really need to start drawing again before bed instead of Shiny-hunting...

          I've been wanting to make a Fakemon based on it since I found one snoozing on my front door a couple years ago, but only recently made one I actually like. I hope you enjoy this Gym-style card featuring my rosy maple moth Fakemon!

          I really have no critiques of the arat, just want to say that I always find your work amazing.

            Thanks a bunch! I'm really happy with it. I feel that the art might be slightly better-suited for Neo cards, but I really wanted to make it a Gym-style card because, if I ever start playing again, I'd like to have a whole deck of my (Alex's) Pokémon. For casual play, of course.

            Here's Aromoth's midde stage. This one might need some tweaks to the wording:

                Could anyone tell me how much these cards are worth? :P



                Holo cards are too much hassle, so I just printed Aromoth as a non-holo. Pretty happy with this set, though. :)

                Here are some prints I did of some of my other recent cards while I was at it:



                Shame I don't have some kind of sparkly laminate for these.

                Those look considerably more real than any counterfeit I've seen in circulation, honestly.

                  Speaking of counterfeits, I decided to make a holo Aromoth card after all and the foil I used resembles something you might see on those. It didn't come out flawlessly (I accidentally sat the "foil mask" in a spot of glue, resulting in a couple unsightly blotches), but I think it turned out decent otherwise. I might try to make a better one later, but not until I've got another batch of holos-to-be ready to print (to avoid wasting materials).



                  I also printed some of my older Dunsparce cards I had never printed before. I'm super-happy with how my signature 'mon (Alex's Shining Dunsparce) turned out!

                    I tried playing around with a different art style. (I don't think I've ever put so much effect into a background...!) I also updated the Gym template a bit (I made the art frame a pixel shorter and and shaved off the specs bar below the art a bit).

                      I'm trying to take a break from video games for a couple weeks. Hopefully I'll be able to pump out a few more cards during that time.

                      I like all the work you've put in on that card.

                      Seeing your blank highlights to me one of the flaws of the English Neo cards, though: the evolution stage box in the top right corner really looks shoehorned into its placement on all Neo era cards.

                        Had another stab at an Ancient-style card. Not as realistic as my Ancient Azelf, but I figured I'd share.

                        And here's a Golbat that I apparently forgot to post. It was based on the first Shiny I ever found (Frostbite Fang is a reference to finding it in Johto's Ice Path).

                          It's been too long, but I got inspired to make a Shiny Misdreavus card after finding one in VC Gold.



                          Google Translate was used for the Japanese version as usual, so it's probably not perfect!

                          EDIT: Changed the attack. Might also change the art eventually (I've got mixed feelings about this one).

                            Not sure how good/bad the effects are, but this idea popped into my head yesterday:



                            I used a template based on older cards to compliment the simple 3D artwork (which I made in Adobe Illustrator since I don't have the patience or know-how for true 3D-rendering). I also tried to base the power-level on the older cards, though the card uses modern wording.

                            Porygon.OMNI is a powerful but temporary evolution of Porygon2. It takes this form when a Porygon2 holds the Omni Drive item while in cyberspace, but must devolve before it can materialize in the real world. There's a theory that MissingNo. was born from a Porygon.OMNI that was forcibly removed from cyberspace. It has no eyes on its face, just those on its "tail feathers."

                              A thing happened. I think I got the text effects a bit closer than I did with Gardevoir.

                                I wasn't expecting to make another Ancient-style card so soon, but here's an Ancient Milotic that I made as part of an art trade:

                                  Anyone remember my Ancient Celebi from eight years ago? I decided to give that another try after making a print-resolution Ancient template:



                                  Print-it-yourself non-holo version:
                                  Spoiler:


                                  Here's a physically-sparkly pair that I printed:



                                  I plan to start a contest soon to give-away the extra Ancient Celebi, so keep an eye on my DeviantArt journal if interested!

                                  More sparkly prints:

                                    I wasn't really happy with my previous MissingNo. card, so here's a new version. I don't know about you, but this one kind of reminds me of cards from back when Pokémon card-faking was just becoming a thing.

                                    Spoiler:


                                    Template based on the classic Gym-series cards, with some elements inspired by XY Evolutions.

                                            I may retake the photo against a different-color background sometime since this one seems to blend-in a bit too much.
