Checking in with everyone

Current Mood: chipperchipper
This comm has gotten quiet lately, and that's ok, but it's not dead yet, so I just wanted to check in with everyone to see how you're all doing. Is anyone working on new cards? I'm not. I think I've completed all the ones I'm going to.

I did want to announce, though, that I will be going to the SPN con in August in Boston. I don't know if it'll be possible to do, but I would love to take along some copies of a few of the cards that were created through this project featuring the actors who will be there that weekend. So far, that would be Jared, Misha, Richard, Chad, Brock, Matt, Amy, Alona and Traci. Since I didn't create cards for all of them, I was wondering if I may get permission from those of you who did. For instance, Traci has already seen her Moon card and she loved it, but I would like to have her sign a larger copy of it for me. I would like to do the same for the other actors we have cards for. I think we have at least one card for all of them, except for Chad. Did we use him on a card for Ash? (I don't have my notes handy to check on that myself.)

Even if this isn't possible, I still wanted to thank everyone, once again, for all your hard work on this project. It was a true labor of love. *hugs you all*

Just wanted to let you know if you wanted to use any card that I created I'm good with that! Heck, if you wanted to take a copy of have any of them actors sign for me I'd be very willing to talk over payment! Thanks for moderating this project. It was really fun to participate!

Considering that you have to pay for every autograph you get, and Jared's is expensive, I'm limited by what I can afford to pay for. I can only pay for what I get for myself, unless you want to send me the money to get autographs for you as well. To get an idea what the prices are, go to www.creationent.com and go to the page for the Boston con and to the tickets page. You'll see what I mean. If you're still interested in having me get autographs for you, contact me via email at kadysn@gmail.com and we'll discuss it.

Hey there! I've only done one for the comm, but I'm cool if you want to use my card. I think there's something wrong with my entry tho, going to fix it. Thanks for the hard work. Good luck! :D

Thanks! I appreciate the permission. I haven't gone through the cards lately to see what I'd want to use, but it's great that you are willing to let me use yours. Thanks!

I made one Cas card (with D and S in the background, it's totally cool if you want to use it. :D

I went through the cards that have been posted at Daunt's gallery, and have chosen the ones I'd like to use, but I don't have the list with me. (My computer died and I have to get internet access elsewhere.) I haven't decided if I will do this or not, but if I do, I will make sure to ask the specific artists for permission beforehand.

I can't remember exactly who was on the cards I made but if you want to use any of mine that would be cool. Make sure you have an awesome time!

It's part of the plan! Thanks for the permission.

I just stumbled onto this comm and hope to do a card, for the fun of it! Have a great time in Boston; color me jealous.

These are fantastic! Do you have plans for printing and selling decks? I read tarot cards and have a few beautiful decks (among them the Neil Gaiman Sandman deck and the Marvel arcana done by an amazing Italian artist); I'd love a set of these.
bt_kady at 2011-04-06 01:55 (UTC) (Link)
That's a really good question, and thanks for asking. Since we've had so many artists take part in this project, and not all of them created their cards through their own drawings, etc, but used images from the show (myself included) we don't own, we can't sell the cards. I'm thinking the best we can do is make the artwork available for people to print their own cards just for personal use. No money can be made from this, as far as I know, since none of us own the rights to the characters.

I hope that answered your question.

Thanks. Duh, of course you can't sell them. I wasn't thinking -- I was just flabbergasted at the amount of work that clearly went into them and at how great they are. If I'd found this site before you were done, I'd have done a couple too! Anyway, thanks for making the finished art available for viewing.
bt_kady at 2011-04-06 02:09 (UTC) (Link)
We're not done, so by all means, if you want to create some cards, feel free. Just post what you'd like to do, and we'll add them to the prompt list. Just make sure you understand the card meanings before you create and that the image reflects the meaning. That's the whole point, after all!

Since season six hasn't completely aired, and, with luck, we'll get a seventh season as well, we still have characters that haven't been represented in the decks. I, for one, can't wait to see any Balthazar cards that are created.
rince1wind at 2011-04-06 02:15 (UTC) (Link)
Where should I post what I'd like to do? And are the parameters just making sure that the art fits the meaning of the card? All media acceptable, for example, and just scan in after? (I'm new to a lot of this.) Thanks for your patience.
bt_kady at 2011-04-06 02:28 (UTC) (Link)
For the parameters, go to the comm's User page. We've given you all the requirements you need to know. Before you start your card, post to the comm and let us know what you'd like to do so we mods have a chance to ok it. Depending on which suit your card(s) fall under, you'll send your finished card(s) to that/those mod(s) for the finishing, which is the frame and scroll that all the cards have added to them. Once we have them finished, we'll send you the completed card(s) which you will then host on whichever photo sharing site you choose,and it's up to you to post your finished card to the comm as all the other artists have done.

My computer has died and I can no longer finish any of the cards, so send your card to either Miki or Belinda, and they can finish it for you. As far as I'm concerned, we'll take what you have.

Hey - I just found this comm and would love to make a card (s) are there any rules or can I just make any that I want?
bt_kady at 2011-06-01 12:21 (UTC) (Link)
Thanks for asking! Yes, we do have some rules and they are found on the user's page. Please read everything which includes any mod posts we've made then let us know what card you'd like to do. We mods try to keep track of what cards are done and which characters still need to be represented.
