So for the last two NoGum Trading Cards for this month I had an idea to do a variant double and then I got obsessed with replicating an image with two states.
No cult film does that better than John Carpenter’s They Live.
I did both drawings separately and I will sit down and paint them by hand but for the purpose of the cards I decided to digitally colour them and to only change the bits I needed to for the effect.
And you’ll never see it on the cards but they definitely line up:
If you are keen on getting your hands on some NoGum trading cards the only way to do so currently is to become a backer on Patreon. All other methods are random unless you can find a Patreon backer willing to give theirs up!
Remember if you dig my stuff and wouldn’t mind seeing semi-daily journal entries which include sneak peeks, behind the scenes and first looks then head over to Patreon and subscribe for as little as $1 (US) a month.
