Trading card art for World of Warcraft TCG

This was a trading card for Upperdecks world of warcraft TCG. Ive also included the sketches. When approaching an illustration such as this, I generally do about 2-4 rough sketches before going to color. The last image is the final. In hindsight, the warm colors pull too much attention, so I probably would have kept the foreground less saturated and put more of the color contrast on the cats face. I think I did this card in late 2007, and I think Ive gotten better since then. I really enjoy doing these trading cards. To date Ive done over 27 cards for the series. Ill be posting some more of them in the future, but with my graphic novel projects I tend to keep myself busy with my own graphic novels such as Nova Colony and CreeD, and something new that I cant talk about yet.
