I’ve officially named a new gang The Ammo Wracks and renamed my previously drawn “mortar girl” to the new nickname of “Harassment”. With the help of her best bud “Interdiction” they can pin down and plaster their opponents at the expense of they ammo budget.
I’ve also added a third member to the gang. Blooper the dog. I think I’ll create a familiar or mascot for every gang.
The Ammo Wracks’ logo references Saint Barbara, who’s legend has been incorporated by the all-lady gang.
Folmer Kelly and I made some revisions to the card layout and designs. Mostly dropping the logo down in size a lot to free up real estate. I’ll still use the original big logo for either the reverse side, or packaging/branding.
First up in new characters is an homage to an upcoming game I’m excited about called Mutant Gangland. It’s being made by Thomas Noppers and thematically it was a natural tie-in. This character is Prima, one of the gang bosses you can command in the game.
Next up is another member of the Waffle Conans sporting the trademark undead palor and mechanized enhancements. I don’t have a name for her yet.
This one is just titled ‘Mortar Girl’ until I come up with a better name. I think her gang will have a love for high explosives and ordnance. Maybe I’ll call the gang The Ammo Wracks.
This fellow is the latest character I drew. I’ve named him Private Ice and his gang seems to be going in a cheesy cyberpunk, eighties ‘Revenge of the Nerds’ aesthetic.
The character I drew from the fictitious Waffle Conans Gang has sparked me into taking the idea further. So in collaboration with @folmerkelly there is a trading card series in the works. We’ve been swapping ideas back and forth on twitter for palettes and card designs.
Here I’m trying out some text layouts.
And here’s a test design from Folmer showing off his skill with the current 13 colour palette.
I wanted a quick diversion from client work, something that was unattached to any specific intellectual property. I started scribbling out pixels and came up with this.
The Waffle Conans are a gang operating out of the Mortuary District. They’ve established several sponsorship contracts through their aggressive pursuit of high quality combat video footage. Video distribution helps maintain brand awareness as well recruiting new members from the overpopulated quarry favelas.
