I love the colors and characters in these cards you've done. This is great. All the diamonds in his attire is a nice touch.

NIIICCE! I love this series. These designs are just great. I can't wait to see what you'll do with the others.

Joe said...

You should make them into actual cards...I guess they are a little thin but that's ok. You should do the suicide king next. He and the one eyed jack were always my favorite.

Sam Nielson said...

Nicely done! Someday, someday I will be cool like you.

Adam Ford said...

A great couple! I can see now why she looks so sad. You really blow me away. Great Stuffs

adrian said...

If they all look like this then they should be worth the wait. Amazing as usual.

Tim Bye said...

These make a fantastic series of images! Really nicely done!

Dave McClellan said...

I was thinking the same thing as Adam... How did this old dude end up with THAT queen? I guess because he's the king.

Great as always.

Mark Behm said...

He's great. Man, the poor girl! I love the subtlety crossed eyes.

sarah said...

Excellent Ryan- these would totally make a unique set of playing cards - keeping with the thin format. Regardless they are fun to look at

Awsome, think you should seriously think about merchandizing it as card decks.

Mike Mac said...

Jason Seiler said...

This is just awesome . . . I'm not familiar with your techique, I was wondering, are you using PS or Painter? Has a nice feel to it, really nice.

Nice! I love that big ol beard and the expression on his face. Its hard to be the king.

Shawn Escott said...

Ryan Wood said...

Thanks for all of the encouragement and nice words on this series of paintings, I really appreciate everybody stopping by.

Sian Cross said...

I really love the style of these cards, they're so atmospheric.

I'm a complete novice at all this and can only dream to be as good as you, but I'm starting on the $100,000 Animation drawing course and maybe you could stop by and take a look if you have the time, and possibly give any advice you may have?

I'd be very grateful.
