    Doublea's Amazing Chaotic Proxy Cards!

    Post by Doublea on Wed Aug 20, 2014 9:56 pm

    All right, people listen closely to this tell. It's a story of a player (me) that decided to have some fun with his chaotic cards and photoshop skills.

    I decided to create some customized chaotic cards for fun. I first started by just putting some unreleased card art into the templates and designing from there. But I found some links to some interesting customized mtg cards.

    Step 1: Ruin Some Super Rares.

    I learned that if you take Acetone (in my case I used nail polish remover, which has acetone in it) you can remove the ink from cards. I started off by experimenting on a rare, but soon realized that it's shininess is a fake shininess which eventually comes off like the ink. I figured that I had to use supers which had a more realistic holo effect to them. It seemed like black ink didn't like to come off as much as lighter colors too. I got three cards made and was fairly happy with the results.





    Step 2: Edit the Cards with Photoshop (or something else...)

    This member of deviantart created amazing templates for chaotic cards (http://king-of-craziness.deviantart.com/gallery/). If you own photoshop you'll be able to make any customization as your heart desires. This is what I came up with:



    Pretty nifty eh? I love the look of the full art cards Tongue

    Step 3: Print Them Suckers Out.

    Now there's various ways in doing this, but I found a relative easy way. At Office Depot they sell adhesive printable transparent paper for $16 (10 sheets). I had a fun time after I bought them and once I got home realized that there wasn't anything in the package. I had to return and exchange it for a proper item. Anyway. These things are super nifty they allow you to print anything and then stick it on a window or, in my case, a card.  



    Step 4: Sticking Things Together.

    I let the ink dry over night just in case and I took some scotch tape and cleaned the surface of the cards that the adhesive was to bind too. This made it so air bubbles were unlikely to form. I took off the back film and placed the cards onto the art (I should have taken a little more time because two of them didn't go perfectly straight and I didn't want to mess with them more).



    Step 5: Cutting.

    Once on and looking good you can cut them out! I just used one of those circular cutters, scissors, and a cutting mat. Once that's done you are practically finished! Here are the results!

    Nice shiny full art cards. They look better in person. I think I might need to tamper with the settings a little next time and try to get the colors brighter. Or try putting a white background somewhere.










    I also decided to make regular unreleased cards on just matte photo paper, here are them!

    Not bad. Honestly Chaotic should have had the full art in the background of the card, and did something else to indicate Tribe. It looks really cool to have the art span over the whole card. Though it looks cool, it does make it obvious that they are proxies xD.

    Well know that the game is dead I don't think anybody is going to care about proxies Tongue Now it's just a fun hobby to customize cards! If I get some paint I might try painting some cards to extend into full art.

    I don't think I can bare to part with any of my supers, but this is really cool. The card's look absolutely excellent. In fact, they're the best fan-made ones that I've ever seen.

    Having the art span the whole card is certainly interesting. It obscures a lot of the art, but makes what you can see much clearer. Overall I enjoy the effect.

    I don't even have many cards so it was tricky choosing which to destroy Tongue

    I tried looking around for other chaotic cards that had been altered or made, but I couldn't find any. It would've been fun to see what people came up with. I'd say they're the best I've seen too.

    It makes it a lot more focused on the creature themselves, I think the effect is super, but some art work just doesn't work with it.

    Thanks for the compliments!

    Yea the full card art span is a really nifty effect. It reminds me of some of the legendary foil cards in pokemon. I think if you're gonna "waste" a super to create something, this is the way to go. Truly lovely cards you've created.

    At first I was looking at the images and was thoroughly confused. I was wondering why they looked so shiny and different. Then once I saw Blzv's comment it clicked. Because you removed the tribe indication and had a full spread art more of the holo shows. Love the effect!

    I hate you for this. Now I want to go through all my cards and see which Supers I could bear to part with.
    I wonder what would happen if we were to use Ultras...Tongue
    I'd assume the same thing. I don't think there's a difference in holo-ness, but I could be wrong.

    And do you think it would have worked better or worse with a Laser printer?

    The problem too of why it's so shiny is that a picture normally has white behind it, which gives it contrast. These are printed out on transparent paper which takes away that white and uses the shiny holo effect in it's place. I think of I messed with the colors I could possibly brighten them up. I was also thinking if I printed out a completely white background on the transparent paper I could put that one on first and then the card art. I think the holo effect would still appear and the white would help you see it more. I could also just white out the parts that I don't want to be holo, but I think that would work better if the card was more traditional.

    I don't even have many supers Tongue so I guess I'm not as attached to them haha. Some Ultras have different holo effects. If you look at Gintanai you can see that he isn't holo, but his background is. They look a little more clear too. But I don't want to destroy any of the ultras I have...

    I think a laser printer might work. The paper says for Inkjet though. I've also heard that laser printers can melt the plastic transparent sheets, I just don't know if that includes the ones I used.

    If you have any questions feel free to ask too!

    Do you know if it's possible to remove the transparent sheet and try again should an error be made?
    Also, did you just use a Q-tip or a Cotton ball to remove the colors?
    Also, just shadowed cards would probably look pretty cool. If you took off the color and left the black. Yterio might not be completely recognizable, but he looks cool in the pic. Tongue
    And where did you get the Art you used? I know there are galleries somewhere, but if you have them bookmarked or something, that'd make things a lot easier. Tongue

    I believe if you get some water you can rub off the ink and should be able to print it again. It warns you to try and not get it wet. Here's the link to what I used-> http://www.officedepot.com/a/products/212881/Office-Depot-Brand-Inkjet-Window-Decals/

    I think you can also buy transparent paper like what those old school projectors used, but it's a lot more money and you have to get some kind of spray on adhesive, so this other way is the way to go.

    Here's some very good tutorials that I used dealing with the whole process, but with magic cards. https://www.youtube.com/user/HarderTimes/videos

    I just used a rag, but a q-tip might be nice if some of it. Try and not get the acetone on the edge or back of the card because it will start taking the foil off. This happened to me, but I don't think it too noticeable after I put the art on.

    I thought Yterio looked pretty cool that way, like I said black seems to be the most finicky for me.

    Here's the art that I found.
    http://art-of-chaotic.deviantart.com/
    and from our good member Ketac123
    http://s1363.photobucket.com/user/Chaotic11D/library/Chaotic%20Art%20Work?sort=3&page=1

    Boom.


    Now that I think about it, Locations would look really cool full art. Especially because it wouldn't cut much of the art off! Too bad I haven't found too many high quality location pictures.

    What cards did you remove art from? Looks like two Battlegear and Yterio. Just wondering what other supers look like under the prints.

    Two maxxor's torches. I would think most supers look the same under neath. Battlegear I might be better to use cause they are lighter colored.

    I wonder if this would work with the premium cards... There could be some really cool effects with the premium foil with some cards.

    Premium and gold foil are the same thing. To get technical there's no such thing as gold foil, and it's just a name we got handed over to our premium pack cards from Yugioh.
