I'm more surprised just how dark the Fairy texture looks in those scans. The Dark resistance makes a fair bit of sense since they do happen to be resistant to Dark types, which are far more potent in the TCG than the Dragon types right now.

    These are simply amazing cards! I especially like the holographic ones, how did you do that? Is a seperate layer or does it actually shine? Keep up the awesome work making the cards! All ive ever done was make them with online generators and card programs

      Thanks! The holographic effect is a different layer... well, 2 layers. The blend settings depend on the background, but what usually works for me is for the top foil layer to be set to Dodge (100% opacity) and the lower one to be set to Multiply (70% opacity).

      I don't really like online generators. The blanks tend to be very low quality, often the wrong colors, with incorrect fonts and placement. The only card-specific program I've ever used was Magic Set Editor, which seemed to do pretty well for MTG and YGO fakes, but I never used it for Pokémon cards (the one I had didn't have the Pokémon plug-in, but I heard that one existed). I use Photoshop for all my fakes now, but GIMP is a great free alternative.

      - - -

      UPDATE:



      I would have made it Japanese, or at least on a Japanese blank, but I haven't made any Ice blanks, I don't really like my Japanese Water blanks, and this artwork wouldn't suit a Psychic blank.

      Trying to look for technical flaws here but not spotting any.

      I bet Snowpoketail is real tasty.

      Oh! The Pokedex entry in that text box seems to have text that is kind of off. Maybe that's just me, though.

        I dunno about that. Regular Slowpoke secrete a honey-like fluid from the tips of their tails, which I assume is why the end of the tail is lighter. This guy doesn't have anything like that, so I assume that it wouldn't taste as sweet. Plus, it's covered in hair.

        That's because I had to reduce the character width so I could fit all the text. IIRC, some Neo-series cards had rather squished-looking flavour text entries, though maybe not to this degree.

        EDIT: This one's pretty close. [x]

        EDIT 2: This one seems to be the most extreme example, which looks almost identical to mine. [x]

        Looks like I could have moved the text box left a pixel or so.

          The text at the top of Snowbro looks a little awkward where it's positioned, probably because there's so much of it up there where there normally isn't quite that much text.

          That's a pretty tough stuffed cat to have 30 HP!

          Effect-wise and artwise, this feels like a card that belongs in Imakuni? card tree.

          There needs to be a bit more foolish dancing involved for it to be true to form for cards about that "Strange Life Form". :P

            How about changing the last sentence to "Each player draws 5 cards. Both Active Pokémon are now Confused." Imakuni? seems to have a thing for Confusing Pokémon.

            - - -

            UPDATE: Finally, a serious card! Sort of. Click the image for print resolution. (Do it. It looks much crisper.)



            Only playable with or against a Gym deck, obviously. Your opponent probably won't have all the cards needed for this effect to work, so you'll probably want to make sure that you do. It would be ideal to use it with a Giovanni + Koga deck in case this card doesn't work out, since all of their Trainer cards (that I can recall) require their own Pokémon. It doesn't have to be a Giovanni + Koga deck, but if it isn't, you will have at least 2 completely useless cards in your deck if this card doesn't succeed.

            Example: If you have Brock, Misty's Duel, Lt. Surge's Secret Plan, Erika's Kindness, Koga's Weedle, Sabrina's Psychic Control, Blaine's Last Resort, and Giovanni's Nidoking in your hand and get heads, you win the game. It's like a 9-piece Exodia that may or may not work.

              UPDATE: No new artwork, but here's a new card using some 8/10-year-old artwork!



              Spoiler:
              Groudon - 80 HP

              {F} - Ancient Ground - 10x
              This attack does 10 damage times the number of {F} Energy
              attached to Groudon. Attach a {F} Energy card from your
              discard pile to Groudon.

              {F} {F} {F} - Shifting Earth - 70
              Discard all {F} Energy cards attached to Groudon or this
              attack does nothing.

              Weakness: {G} - Resistance: none - Retreat Cost: {C} {C}


              If you're wondering why the foil is overlapping the Pokémon, it was inspired by some Japanese e-series promos.

              EDIT: And here's a remake of my older Alexpoke card as an e-card!

                UPDATE: Pink weasel~

                [Image removed -- updated in post #99]

                I caught a Shiny Sneasel last night and decided to make a card with it by editing some of my older Sneasel artwork.

                All fantastic stuff here since the last time I posted.

                Sorry for not having a more in-depth critique. I've been kinda busy offline.

                  Thanks! That's understandable.

                  - - -

                  UPDATE: Happy New Year!



                  I know the alignment looks a little off, but so was the alignment on a lot of Neo Genesis cards.

                  EDIT: Changed the alignment based on a not-so-funky Neo card. Also changed the effect on the "Happy New Year" text to make it look more like a foil stamp.

                  I like the second version considerably more, but even with the changes pointed out I'm having a hard time distinguishing the differences between the two versions.

                    I moved the new card from below the old card to next to it for easier comparison. Now it should be more apparent that the foil stamp is glossier on the newer version with a slightly less greenish look, the set symbol was moved down a little, an extra space was added between the second Energy cost and was moved to the left (centered with the first Energy cost), the second attack name was nudged to the right, and the WRRC symbols were moved up a pixel.

                      UPDATE: I decided to use the same Eevee artwork for a BW/XY-style card.

                      That seems a bit dark for a BW/XY card. Might just be me, though.

                      Needs more green on the Alexpoke. :P because every single shiny is either pink or green

                      That foil pattern reminds me of the Japanese Shiny Collection card foil pattern.

                        That's exactly what I ripped the foil from. XD

                        - - -

                        UPDATE: Beware of the Banshee tears!



                        Spoiler:
                        You can't have more than 1 Shining Misdreavus in your deck.

                        Shining Misdreavus / Lv. 32 / HP50

                        Screech Pokémon. HT: 0.7 meters, WT: 1 kilogram

                        Pokémon Power: Invitation to the Grave
                        Once during your turn, if Shining Misdreavus is in your discard pile, you may discard 1 card from your hand.
                        If you do, your opponent must also discard 1 card from his or her hand.

                        {D} {W} Demon's Tears / 10
                        Flip a coin. If heads and if the Defending Pokémon attacks during your opponent's next turn,
                        any damage it does is reduced by 30.

                        Weakness: None / Resistance: {F} -30 / Retreat Cost: {C}

                        It loves to sneak up on people late at night, then startle them with its shriek-like cry.

                        Illus. Alex "KKN" Bowen / No.200


                        EDIT: And here's an English version. I censored the attack names.

                        Alexpoke isn't green enough yet. :P

                        For some reason that Shining Misdreavus reminds me of gold glitter.

                          I think that's the point of Neo 4/Destiny Shining foil, considering that ひかる can be translated as "glittering."

                          That first one was just a joke! :P

                          And that I did not know. I have learned today!

                            UPDATE: I somehow derped and forgot the 1-per deck clause on my recent English Shining Pokémon, so here are the fixed versions. I also reduced the damage of Shining Sneasel's Reap (since Darkness Energy adds 10 damage) and tried to fix some of the distortion around its tail.

                            I am ashamed to have not noticed those were even missing. ;(
