Retro Style Guardians of the Galaxy Sketch Cards


Sketch cards can be fun. I usually try to create a specific approach when I take on a freelance job. The approach with the regular sized Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 sketch cards was make them appear very retro or old school. Classic costumes, traditional inking, and simplified high contrast colors. Cards are usually drawn quickly. It’s often a necessity when you consider the volume of cards and the time allotted to complete them. I typically take sketch card gigs in-between other assignments.

For every sketch card gig you receive guidelines from the trading card company. These are usually a list of approved characters to draw and rules for what you can and cannot draw the characters doing. Sometimes the list of characters can cause some head scratching in regards to who is approved for the set and who are not. But I always try to make the best of it and focus on the characters I enjoy drawing the most. I’m very pleased with how some of these turned out. Enjoy.
