Crafting 6 Card Templates for a Steampunk Card Game
Objective: The task involved creating designs for six distinct card templates for a card game with a steampunk aesthetic, drawing inspiration from renowned games like Magic the Gathering.
The game encompasses six card types: Murder, Target, Steal, In Your Sights, and Character cards. Following the client's preferences, the design process incorporated six unique colors (light gray, dark gray, red, yellow, blue, green) assigned to each card type.
Furthermore, I meticulously selected an appropriate font, allocated dedicated spaces for titles, descriptions of card effects, and handled all other elements essential to card design. This comprehensive approach ensures that my client can utilize these templates seamlessly for generating new cards, each with distinct text descriptions, names, and illustrations.
Additionally, I presented one character as an example, illustrating how characters corresponding to the six card types will appear. In the actual game, these characters will be diverse.
Each card measures 3.5 x 2.5 inches.
Deer in the Magic Forest for a Deck of Inspirational Fantasy Cards
I had to draw an illustration for a deck of inspirational fantasy cards. Dimensions: 4.25 x 6.25 inches. The phrase that should be on the card sounds like this: The world is full of magic things patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper. It was decided to draw a magical deer in a magical forest that opens up to the eyes of the seer.
Design Development and Illustrations for the Sauria Board Game
My client approached me with this task.
For his Jurassic Park board game, I had to design and draw the following:
1. Design the Player Card layout. This means that it was necessary to come up with the appearance, design, draw and place the icons of the player's abilities, draw a portrait of the character, and so on.
2. Design 4 dinosaur cards, including illustrations for the front and back of the dinosaur cards.
Here on the left are card backs with illustrations for all 4 types of dinosaur cards. They are divided into 4 types. At the top are the most dangerous for the player (black backside), below the safest for the player (green backside).
On the left, there are 4 card faces with icons (carnivore predator, herbivore), (big dinosaur, small dinosaur), (dinosaur pack, one dinosaur) and so on. It was necessary to place this on the Player Card, add the names of dinosaurs, and their level of danger expressed in numerical value, and draw and place game dice of different colors in the right corner of the card.
4. It was necessary to design the front and back of the Daytime Event and Nighttime Event decks.
5. It was necessary to design the front and back of the card layout for the Encounter deck. This was to include an illustration from the front of the card that would serve as a background for the various text that would be placed on 15 or more cards. I also needed to draw an illustration for the back of the card.
6. I also drew an illustration for a general background for dinosaur cards and one illustration for a Raptor pack for dinosaur cards.
Here you can see these examples of my work that I show as a set.
Set of 24 cards for the board card game The Mystic Mountain
Assignment: It was necessary to design cards and draw everything else for the board game The Mystic Mountain. This included drawing illustrations for cards, icon design, creating a logo, and everything else.
Here is a set of 24 Virtues cards, which are divided into 4 elements - Water, Fire, Air, and Earth. The cards here are shown at 50% of their actual size.
The game is called The Mystic Mountain. It is a mystical board game inspired by spirituality, mysticism.
Here the author of the game shares the details of the creation of the game. https://vocal.media/gamers/the-mystic-mountain
Work on the game continues, this is only part of the game.
The development of the game was carried out in close cooperation with the author, so as not to miss anything and reflect the author's view of how it should look.
Box template for 24 cards of the mystical board game "The Mystic Mountain"
Task: It was necessary to create a box template for 24 cards of the board game "The Mystic Mountain".
In the center is the symbol of the White Flame, which is used in the game.
When creating the design, this option was chosen with a predominance of brown, gold, sand, as this should send the player or viewer to the theme of antiquity, the desert, spiritual purity, secret knowledge, still hidden. Also, it was not supposed to resemble the design of previously created maps in terms of color scheme.
Earlier, I designed the cards and drew illustrations for 24 cards. This set can be viewed here.
Shown here is the design of the box without the bleeds that need to be included in the template. That is, now the viewer sees the box as it will come out after the printing press. In fact, a slightly different version is being made for printing, namely, including bleeds (an additional part of the box of size 6-8 mm) along the border of the box. Here the bleeds are simply hidden.
A set of 16 character stickers for meeples (game pieces) for the board game Ark Nova
This is a set of 16 stickers featuring characters for meeples (game pieces) used in the board game Ark Nova. These stickers are meant to be applied to the meeples to provide additional visual variety beyond the standard, plain game pieces.
The game features four teams of zoo employees, each with unique tasks such as contract negotiation and zoo management. The appearance of each team's costume is solely for the purpose of visually distinguishing them from other teams. In the game, all teams (red, yellow, black, and blue) have the same functions, and their costumes do not confer any advantages or highlight their strengths or weaknesses.
The meeples in the game have a size of 15x16 mm. The stickers shown in the images are larger than the actual size used in the game.
A set of illustrations for a card game in humorous fantasy style (18 cards)
My client approached me with this task. For a card game, I had to draw a series of humorous card illustrations with fairy tale fantasy characters in a harsh modern world. That is, in the world where we all live. I suggested doing it in such a fun style. Since my client was on a budget and wanted to test this idea first, I did it in a sketchy style as it's pretty easy for me. I drew each illustration from an hour to two hours to ensure we stayed within my client's budget. Here is a set of illustrations in a reduced form.
Designing Cards and Icons for a Dark Fantasy-Themed Card Game

The Event Cards, on the other hand, do not have icons but all necessary information is conveyed through text on the card.

Furthermore, I have meticulously created nine distinct card designs, each adorned with faction logos, prominently showcased on both the front and back sides of the cards. Additionally, I have designed icons for the front sides of the cards, all thoughtfully presented in the first, second, and third columns.
In the leftmost section of the second column, the front sides of the cards are showcased, featuring a substantial amount of textual description. For these, a bespoke design was implemented wherein the text seamlessly occupies all available space, extending down to the very bottom edge of each card.
Conversely, in the leftmost section of the third column, the front sides of the cards are presented, featuring a more minimal amount of textual description. For such cards, a distinct design was implemented, strategically placing the text in the upper area of the text field.
Additionally, I have meticulously illustrated components for the Death deck and game tokens. These too are eloquently presented within this portfolio.
