Card Illustrations
#1
Recently a lot of concept artists responsible for the artwork of the Battlecast cards have been uploading the artwork onto their respective sites and blogs. Some cards didn't make the cut in the final version, while others were included into the game itself.

I loooove Battlecast's art, though I gotta say that first one definately is the worst looking of the bunch. 3D models with some effects over them, really? No wonder Spyromania was handled to someone else.

Wonder if we'll get art of the new team cards soon. Dirge of Undead looks really good.
Anime? In my Skylanders? It's more likely than you think.

In my opinion, Eruptor's is the best. So much detail!

The old Spyromania card art reminds me so much of The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night and Dawn of the Dragon game cover art.

And Amplifier somewhat reminds me of The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginnings cover.
And I do mean somewhat.

So now I can properly see the artwork for the retched Biting Cold spell. Looks good... I'll never forgive the spell though... Angry

Apparently there is a Skylanders Battlecast illustration book that's only given out to, once again, Activision employees.

The two with Golden Queen and the one with Wolfgang are my absolute favorite so far, along with the Trigger Happy one. I love the compositions, the angles, the colors and the coloring style the artists have chosen.

Not sure of how old you are, but have you seen the movie "The mummy" ? Wink

There are two scenes with a sort of.... scarab shuffle :
Scarab Attack
Bigger Scarab Attack

No I haven't. It was an exaggeration of how disturbing those Golden Scarab's look up close.

*shudders* I'm pretty certain real Scarab's don't have serrated edges.

EDIT... after 7 months:

OH! Nope, never mind! Watched a David Attenborough doco a few nights ago...
They do.

Really Skylanders needs Art Books and not be employee only.

Battlecast Art is SO amazing (most of the time). It's sad they probably aren't continuing it... =/

Wait, Smolderdash was originally planned for the game?!
Why no her?! WHY?! (I.e. I love Smolderdash)

Ah well, the art still look good! It looks like what would've been her Gear card.

Parley is one of the unreleased Sap of the Ancients only cards, isn't it? Man, those have some pretty interesting art.

I kind of wish those cards were patched in, but it seems that the devs have lost interest in it.
Which is a pity because Battlecast is so darn good!

Everyone was laid off, Clok-Roo, at the most there's one guy making sure the game still works in every update(since they added Prism Break and Sonic Boom lines), but it's possible even that guy is gone by now.

Seriously, SOMEBODY needs to turn this into a fan-game that they can the update with their own Skylanders, and even include the spells that didn't make it into the final game.

I said this somewhere else on this forum... can't remember where, though.

Goody! More of these!
I was wondering when I would get more material to create custom cards of my own!

So the same guy who made the art for the Kaijudo TCG, did Skylanders Battlecast art, but it was scrapped, what a waste.
