As I am sure about my card game idea, I have begun to create silhouettes and line work using ink in order to generate ideas for my bizarre little alien critters. This batch of thumbnails are very rough. So far I am not drawn to many of these but I intend to do more. I want my creatures to be very simple and bold, as that is what would work best on a card. I think that using ink to create these designs was definitely the way to go.
