In my 3D illustration class, I created a character who would be the mascot/spokesperson for a mouthwash company. So I decided to make a secret agent/spy, because she is always ready to-go with her mouthwash, which is her secret weapon in killing bad breath. On her utility belt, she has a rope of floss and some toothbrushes, and a backpack that carries extra of all of her spy gadgets.
These are the final sketches for my Snow White card deck. I did line art with ink to draw each symbol, border, and face to use on each of my cards. I will be digitally painting on each of these, and assembling the symbols, borders and faces to card to create the full deck.
A couple weeks ago, I made a post of the two characters (Maris and Exi the beetle) that I made for my 3D illustration class. I have since made an environment for them, and photographer Chris Simmons helped photograph them. The final step was to turn one of the photos into a book cover.

Since my card deck proposal from a month and a half ago, I decided to change some of my idea for my card deck, considering that I only have 2 months to complete them now. Instead of doing an illustration on every single card, I am now doing my number cards as regular number cards. I am planning on doing the original illustrations for those cards hopefully this summer.
For my thumbnails, I decided to do each page of thumbnails with a different border, to see what I can do for an interesting border.
