Must be copies of their signatures "cut out" and put on their cards. They can't literally sign from beyond the grave.

Greetings All!

I just wanted to jump in here and introduce myself... My name is Jeff and I am one of the sketch card artists working on the new Indiana Jones Heritage set.

I'm pretty new to this site but a HUGE Indy fan! (Used a lot of the stills in other section of this site for reference) Please take a look and let me know what you think:



I love this alien Indy! (Oh wait, it says he's sick - i thought it was some kind of gill-headed Indy... oh well, enjoy!)

Wow your very talented, Great job, I was just going to go for Autos but will be collecting all of these as well. I really love the snake in Marion's shoe, and the Indy holding onto the front of the truck.

Wow! Youve done 250 of these sketch cards? I cannot wait to see the rest. Have you done some ToD and LC cards as well?

I had plans to but ended up literally going frame-by-frame through 'Raiders' instead with a total of 120+ full-color cards like above!

There's still a handful of sketches I never got to realize 'on card' - just ran out of time

Sort of a shame, I would love to have seen what you could have done w/ ToD especially, however Im sure there will be alot of very cool sketches in this set so it's all good. I can't wait to see the South America and Raven Bar ones.

If anyone is looking for just the base set of Heritage cards there are some pretty good auctions up on Ebay for them (presale of course.) I bid on a set that was 9.95 total with free shipping. I want to save my money for the action figures so I figured I would just get a base set of the cards instead of buying a box and trying to get 1 or 2 inserts.

Aww that stinks. I was hoping to see a cartoony Mola Ram! I actually have been trying to see all your cards and missed the ones you post here! Need to check here more often.

Yeah they are probably the best of the Indy sketch cards I've seen, hands down!

Trevor if you read this, do you mind telling me what medium you used for the cards?

Hey guys! Wow, I'm glad you like the cards! It was a lot of work but it was definitely fun!!! I hadn't had a good excuse to spend time on Indy drawings in a long time. I'm personally ecstatic about Adam Hughes' cards. That man is just too damn talented!

These cards were almost all done in watercolor and ink. Some of them were just drawn with pencil.

all the artists are getting six of their cards back to do with what they please. I will be auctioning my six off on ebay, so I'll let you guys know when they go up (we should get our cards back by April I'd guess)

Thanks again! glad you like some of them!

Trevor, your work definitely channels the Struzan vibe, do you use a similar method for creating your works ie. projecting an image onto a surface, tracing it, and then going to town with whatever medium you see fit? I'm really curious as to the process you use, for creating these works of art.

Great job!

Hey Deckard, Yep, you got it! Project/then render. Drew is the best there is, for me, so when I was younger I used to use his exact methods to learn. Nowadays my focus is sculpture, so I've sort of become much more lax with my drawing/painting. I hardly ever do it in fact...but I think that's good...It was nice to leave it behind for a long while.

So instead of airbrushing and using colored pencils, I just use watercolors and inks for the color stuff... At this size it gives you more control. A good projection will lead you to nailing a likeness, (just look at that new Hugh Fleming comic cover art...DANG that Indy looks good) but these were just loose projections so that I could knock out 50 of them.

For likeness sculpture the goal is to capture a likeness as perfectly as you can, so I tend to prefer seeing people stylize the characters more in this kind of drawing (and Adam Hughes has done is to perfection for me) I would love to be able to do THAT!

thanks for the comments and questions!
