A huge thanks again!

  




I'm very happy you liked it!! Smile Happy to do it. I just wish I could have given you a cooler Masterpieces card Razz

Thats a perfectionist speaking.That card would grace anybody's collection Thumb Up .

As a general question to the artists were you only given a specific number of blank cards and could you ask for more if a card or cards did not turn out as you hoped?

hehe, yeah, you're right about being a perfectionist sometimes. Razz

As for your question, a lot depends on the card company. TOPPS gave me exactly the amount I was supposed to do, so there's no real room for error. But a few other card sets I've worked on sent quite a few extra blanks in case of mistakes. I have a feeling TOPPS would send an artist more cards if requested (when sent back the mistakes) but it's really quite a hassle, especially when working on a tight deadline Smile So with Masterpieces you pretty much have to get it right the first time or oh well! lol.

Hope that answers the question okay! Big Grin

1 Jessica Hickman - Horn of Gondor ??
2 Roberto Flores ? - Gandalf
3 ? - Legolas ?
4 Jessica Hickman - Frodo
5 Tom Hodges - Orc ?
6 William O'Neill - Faramir
7 Lee Kohse - Witch King on Fell beast
8 Leah Mangue? - ?
9 Kevin Graham - Uruk Hai ( 1 of 2 )
10 Darla Ecklund ? - ?
11 ?? - Fell beast ?
12 Jim Kyle - The One Ring
13 Jason Keith Phillips - Aragorn or Boromir or ??
14 Howard Shum - Arwen ??
15 Kevin Graham - Witch King ( 2 of 2 )

Anyone else help ?

1..correct
2 and 3 is Roberto Flores (first Legolas I've seen by him)
5 correct
10 Darla Ecklund - Legolas
8 and 11 are Matthew Goodmanson
13...I'd say Aragorn

1. DragonCrypt...can't believe you pulled that spooky Green Marsh Ghost card on Halloween...so many of my cards have wound up in Canada...to both stores and to awesome collectors via Ebay...glad you love it!


Thanks Len for putting so much effort into all your cards! I love the cards you've done for this series. So much detail and effort into the cards and not just a few but a ton of them. I consider myself very lucky to be able to pull such a card considering the price that some of your cards go for on that auction site.

That's what I love about this set, so many artists putting so much effort into these sketches. I even love the more common ones. Thanks to all the artists who contributed to the set!

Here's to hoping Topps is planning a Star Wars version with this caliber of sketches! Wink

dis68 - very nice pulls. Not only a good range of quality artists, but also nice examples from those artists which should make it easy to trade if you want to. Those are 2 of the nicest Hickmans I have seen and I also haven't seen a Flores Legolas before. Goodmanson seems to me to be one of the underrated artists of this series, with lots of interesting characters.

All in all, a very nice collection. Let me know if you are wanting to trade. I am still looking for a Hickman.

Hey Dragon_Crypt...thanks again for the great compliment...it's collectors like you that made me want to really put my all into these cards...I really wanted to make cards that OCD people like me would enjoy pulling from packs...I'm glad it's in your collection...in fact quite a few of my cards have headed to the Great White North!

And Gotham_Knight...man, what a great 2 boxes you bought.
What are you going to do with that Dillon of Boromir in the boat...if you're selling it PM me a price and although I may not be able to afford it, I'd give it a consideration...Ray Dillon's pieces for this set are SPECTACULAR...his two panel pieces especially are so conceptually PERFECT...his Frodo in the Tree Reading coupled with his Collapse before the Eye Tower...and this Boromir two panel Death scenario and Boat Scene...really breathtaking...

I love that you pulled my Gandalf Escaping Isengard...

...let me know where it's headed in case you sell or trade it...just trying to keep track of where my cards may wind up...love the "from there and back again" traveling that they're doing...

...and I agree...I can't wait for a Star Wars sketch set like MASTERPIECES and I would be first in line to do another 150 sketch cards for such an Anniversary sketch card set...LOTR and SW are classic good vs evil themes that are so beautifully myth-oriented...and working from a 6 film epic like Star Wars would really produce some cool and hypnotic images...

...which brings me to the warmth and romance in each and every Renae DeLiz sketch card out there...from Evolution and Masterpieces...to her work in Avengers...Renae's work is...in a word...MAGICAL...and I can give no greater praise than to call everything she does...real ART! Her work really transcends the sketch card arena and I can't wait to get a spectacular Eowyn PSC that's she's done for me in my grubby Gollum-like hands...because...I'm a mad dog collector also...

...in fact...I've just completed getting at least one sketch card from the entire 67 artist Masterpieces ensemble...a Kayanan would have made it the MASTER 68 but I had no such luck with my cases...but I'm thrilled to have completed this collection (as well as the 47 artist Evolution group) as there can only be 21 complete collections like this out there with Russell Walks having only completed 21 spectacular portraits due to circumstances beyond his control...I'm really pleased and extremely broke!

Hope you all have a great buildup to the Holidays and stay in good health... Luv You Thumb Up Clap Wave

To be honest im not sure what im going to do with them, i was going to try and get the first part of the Dillon 2 pannel piece but currently its sitting on ebay at $250 and thats just not what im willing to spend on a single card (not just yet anyway).

Im tempted to sell them both and buy other stuff ive been looking at figures and stuff but im not too savvy with the whole value of cards.

Although id ordered some custom sketches from Katie Cook and i may just get rid of my other sketch cards and just hang onto them as i had decided i was only going to collect Katies stuff exclusivly...till i started buying boxes that is...over a case and a half and ive only pulled one of Katies sketches...hence the custom sketch ordering.
