Well, my Preview sets arrived today, and I also found an incredible sketch by Norvien Basio!! Dance Elephant Metal



Absolutely incredible detail and the scan does not do it justice. Can't wait for the full set to come out! Clap

My 16 packs for this set arrived at lunchtime. I took my time opening them so that I could enjoy every minute. There are never enough packs to open when the quality is this good Smile

In addition to the sketches, I also received one of the Meghan Hetrick lenticular cards and a Richard Cox Metal Dragon Chase Card ERM2. Oh, and four complete base and chase card sets. Although the subject matter wont appeal to everyone, I would recommend that anyone with an appreciation of high quality trading card based artwork should look into picking up at least a base set as they are gorgeous cards.

But enough rambling, here are the sketches I pulled in the order I pulled them:

Kat Laurange, Priscilla Petraites
Hanie Mohd, Jeena Pepersack


Lynne Anderson, Loren Bobbitt
Sam Agro, Jofel Cube


John Monserrat, Luro Hersal
Carolyn Edwards, Molly Brewer


Samantha Johnson, Irma Ahmed
Leah Mangue, Norvien Basio


The detail on some of these sketches has to be seen to be believed. It is just amazing how much effort the artists have put into these miniature works of art. Enjoy Smile

Another tremendous set from Elaine and Tony. My 16 packs numbered 769/800 to 784/800 yielded the usual four sets of base and spot foil cards as well as the ERM1 metal card, the ERL lenticular card, and these beauties in the order I pulled them Smile :





Sanna U, Kate Bradley, Jessica Hickman.





Yuriko Shirou, Mike Hartigan, John Monserrat.





Elaine Perna metal sketch, Amy Clark, Irma Ahmed.





Jake Sumbing, Oliver Castaneda, Danielle Ellison.





Luro Hersal, Optic Nerve, Chris Meeks.





Anthony Tan, Priscilla Petraites.

Only strange thing about the break was I did not get a single unicorn sketch. I aim to take care of that as I just secured one of Carolyn Edwards AP's from the set Big Grin .

Awesome pulls Richard. Smile

We were getting low on unicorn sketch cards by the end of putting the packs together. Unicorns were the least drawn in the set. Artists drew tons of elves, dragons, mermaids and fairies.

I received my four sets in the mail yesterday! Clap Another outstanding release by Elaine and Tony! As Kevin mentioned above, even if the subject matter isn't your cup of tea, do yourself a favor and pick up at least a base set if you have an appreciation for great art card sets.

So, on to the goods... in addition to the four complete base sets and one spot foil chase set, I was also lucky enough to pull an ERL lenticular card by Meghan Hetrick. Smile And here are my sketch cards, in the order that I pulled them:


Optic Nerve. I love this, it's adorable!




Ingrid Hardy. Wow! I am a big fan of her work and this is just incredible! It isn't just a sketch card but a miniature museum piece.



Sam Agro. This greedy dragon is having too much fun sifting through the piles of gold!



Darla Ecklund. Quite the elegant dragon. Have a mentioned that I like dragons?!! Big Grin

A lovely collection of sketches you pulled there Debi. Really liking the Ingrid Hardy Mermaid. She did a fantastic Pisces Mermaid AP for me for Dark Zodiac. As you say, these are paintings not sketches. The only downside to them is they are often quite curved with the acrylic paint.

Well doen to everyone else who has posted their pulls from this set. As ever, I there wasn't a bad set amongst them. Can I vote for Non-Sport Trading Card Set of 2016 now, as I think I know where my vote is going Thumb Up

Went away for 10 days and came back to lots of stuff waiting to be opened. One case Game of Thrones, 4 sets of Perna Spellcasters and 2 cases of Star Wars Evolution. Very exciting and the first cards I have opened for ages.

A fabulous set. Base cards are all beautiful, nice inserts and stunning sketches. I only do the Mythology and Spellcasters sets from Perna so have been waiting for over a year!

As well as the base sets and sketches, I got the full set of 4 spot foil and the metal chase ERM1

Yuriko Shirou dragon / Gransoull elf



Sumbing dragon / Sanna U elf

Trade list (mostly comics and scifi). Also lots of sketch cards.

Around lunchtime today, my Bonus Set arrived. Inside the well packaged box I found a 20 card Base Set, an SF3 Silver Foil Chase Card and these two sketches by Jason Saldajeno and Fer Galicia:



Both sketches are excellent but the Saldajeno is simply amazing.
