Here’s a little experiment I’ve been playing around with lately.
Mostly done in Designer, with a little help from Photo.
It’s not exactly how I imagined it was going to be at the start but I’m reasonably pleased with it.
Useful suggestions and comments are welcome.
If I get some good suggestions for improvements I might make an updated version.

P.S. The ‘ratings’ on the cards are not meant to be any kind of critical review of the software. I just had to use different ‘scores’ to make it look a little bit more interesting.

P.P.S. Kept getting a -200 error on upload so I had to upload a fairly low-res version.

Well, I love 'em, Garry! I can;t think of any improvements, unless you want to produce a complete set for us to play with ... which wouldn't have the impact of this.

What are the four small logos near the lower edge of each card please? Do they have meaning or are they just logos? Are the coins 'value for money'?

  • The crosswords grid one is for pixels
  • The strange glasses one for vectors
  • The T column for text
  • And the coins for price

Kasper-V: Many thanks. I’ll get a Kickstarter campaign together for a print run. Only three cards in the set (so far), but that just makes it easier to collect them all. Might be lots of ‘swapsies’ though.

William Overington: Please see Wosven’s answer.

Fred Lespine: Many thanks.

malayali: Many thanks. Glad you like it.

Wosven: Spot-on. Cheers.

William: I was thinking about putting some more together based on the various wish-list items that have been requested in the forums: E.g. Asset Manager; Animator; Diagrammer; etc. I might give it a go, but no promises.

malayali: My idea was a kind of “Top Trumps” style of card, so having unique items wouldn’t work too well. Maybe a re-design would allow for your idea.

Shouldn’t that be obverses and reverses, or fronts and backs, rather than a mixture of the two? :/

I use Affinity Photo. 😀

Vectors, I'm guessing, pangloy?


The reactions seem a little excessive -- I expect they're feeling the strain of lockdown! 😊

No sir. I use Bitmap.

I capture screen and paste on Affinity Photo.
Make selection of GarryP's card and copy it.
Then  find photo of Yu-gi-oh on internet.

And mix them together.

Oh, I never thought of that -- I thought you'd drawn them. But your way is how I'd do it myself, so I should have guessed!

A very neatly done job.
