Shinyumbreon's submission for the e4 signature exchange 2024!

Hi all! I participated for the first time in the signature exchange (click here for more info), and guys i had a blast! I haven’t received my package yet, but im sure that will be soon, I can not wait!
This was my first time “altering” cards, or drawing on one but it was super cool to do so! I found a new way to be creative, and i would like to share it with y’all! I made around 36 cards with a drawing, and around 8 “secret rare’s”. Some of them were (randomly) personalized for specific E4’ers! The rest were simply signed “shinyumbreon”.
A TIP/PSA FOR THE LOVELY PERSONS RECEIVING A DRAWING ON THEIR CARD:
Use a sleeve before putting it in a binder (or storing it anywhere else), to protect the paint layer! It shouldn’t come off that easily, but to be sure!
A big shoutout to the organisators this year @Slade and @pfm . They also made a amazing recap vid! So, here are the “altered” cards! I miss them but the thought that they are being cherished by E4 member’s warms my heart.

SPOILER ALERT! if you DID NOT get ur package yet and did not watch the recap vid and want to wait to see all the cards in person, CLICK AWAY!

You did a crazy amount of work on these and they turned out amazing! I assume paint pens because how smooth the arts look. Such great concepts and the full arts are so crazy fun! I hope you get your signature cards soon!

Thank you so much! And yes sir, paint pens were being (ab)used!
Well, i am prrrretty sure it is worth the wait, the recap looked amazing, i mean…talkin’ bout great concepts… the last one to be featured in that vid… :eyes:… (Still gonna find a way to put it in a binder!)

yay so glad you like it, thanks for your kind words ! And you are most welcome!
Is it the one with glaceon surfin’ on some ice while he looks terribly worried (i didnt know what went wrong with his facial expression but eh it fits haha) because his buddy is far behind him? :rofl: :joy: I think that was one of the 3 “hardest”/time-consuming cards since it was pretty hard to do a perfect colourmatch with certain details in the cards, for example the mountains, the ice and the sky, but it was fun to do! enjoy!! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: :ice_cube:

Yeah, the Bergmite one. It was one of my biggest highlights of the cards I got. You did a crazy good job blending it all with the original card art!

These are VERY cool, and a great artistic effort and work. I was, of course surprised, but you truly put a ton of soul and heart into this. It was really fun to see when I got to that card.

Just remembered to revisit this topic now that I’ve opened my package, and I am also blown away by the creative drawings! A lot of the arts incorporate the eeveelution (or the recipient’s username) in such clever ways. Really glad to have been a lucky recipient of one of your drawings and to have been reminded to come back to this thread! (I really love the Digging Duo illustration :slightly_smiling_face:)
