    I had to draw an illustration for a deck of inspirational fantasy cards. Dimensions: ‎ 4.25 x 6.25 inches. The phrase that should be on the card sounds like this: The world is full of magic things patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper. It was decided to draw a magical deer in a magical forest that opens up to the eyes of the seer.

  • Set of design development and illustrations for the Sauria game

    My client approached me with this task.
    For his Jurassic Park board game, I had to design and draw the following:
    1. Design the Player Card layout. This means that it was necessary to come up with the appearance, design, draw and place the icons of the player's abilities, draw a portrait of the character, and so on.
    2. Design 4 dinosaur cards, including illustrations for the front and back of the dinosaur cards.
    Here on the left are card backs with illustrations for all 4 types of dinosaur cards. They are divided into 4 types. At the top are the most dangerous for the player (black backside), below the safest for the player (green backside).
    On the left, there are 4 card faces with icons (carnivore predator, herbivore), (big dinosaur, small dinosaur), (dinosaur pack, one dinosaur) and so on. It was necessary to place this on the Player Card, add the names of dinosaurs, and their level of danger expressed in numerical value, and draw and place game dice of different colors in the right corner of the card.
    4. It was necessary to design the front and back of the Daytime Event and Nighttime Event decks.
    5. It was necessary to design the front and back of the card layout for the Encounter deck. This was to include an illustration from the front of the card that would serve as a background for the various text that would be placed on 15 or more cards. I also needed to draw an illustration for the back of the card.
    6. I also drew an illustration for a general background for dinosaur cards and one illustration for a Raptor pack for dinosaur cards.

    Here you can see these examples of my work that I show as a set.

  • Set of 24 cards for the board card game The Mystic Mountain

    Assignment: It was necessary to design cards and draw everything else for the board game The Mystic Mountain. This included drawing illustrations for cards, icon design, creating a logo, and everything else.

    Here is a set of 24 Virtues cards, which are divided into 4 elements - Water, Fire, Air, and Earth. The cards here are shown at 50% of their actual size.

    The game is called The Mystic Mountain. It is a mystical board game inspired by spirituality, mysticism.

    Here the author of the game shares the details of the creation of the game. https://vocal.media/gamers/the-mystic-mountain

    Work on the game continues, this is only part of the game.
    The development of the game was carried out in close cooperation with the author, so as not to miss anything and reflect the author's view of how it should look.

  • Box template for 24 cards of the mystical board game "The Mystic Mountain"

    Task: It was necessary to create a box template for 24 cards of the board game "The Mystic Mountain".

    In the center is the symbol of the White Flame, which is used in the game.

    When creating the design, this option was chosen with a predominance of brown, gold, sand, as this should send the player or viewer to the theme of antiquity, the desert, spiritual purity, secret knowledge, still hidden. Also, it was not supposed to resemble the design of previously created maps in terms of color scheme.

    Earlier, I designed the cards and drew illustrations for 24 cards. This set can be viewed here.

    Shown here is the design of the box without the bleeds that need to be included in the template. That is, now the viewer sees the box as it will come out after the printing press. In fact, a slightly different version is being made for printing, namely, including bleeds (an additional part of the box of size 6-8 mm) along the border of the box. Here the bleeds are simply hidden.

  • A set of 16 character stickers for meeples (game pieces) for the board game Ark Nova

    This is a set of 16 stickers featuring characters for meeples (game pieces) used in the board game Ark Nova. These stickers are meant to be applied to the meeples to provide additional visual variety beyond the standard, plain game pieces.

    The game features four teams of zoo employees, each with unique tasks such as contract negotiation and zoo management. The appearance of each team's costume is solely for the purpose of visually distinguishing them from other teams. In the game, all teams (red, yellow, black, and blue) have the same functions, and their costumes do not confer any advantages or highlight their strengths or weaknesses.

    The meeples in the game have a size of 15x16 mm. The stickers shown in the images are larger than the actual size used in the game.

  • A set of illustrations for a card game in humorous fantasy style (18 cards)

    My client approached me with this task. For a card game, I had to draw a series of humorous card illustrations with fairy tale fantasy characters in a harsh modern world. That is, in the world where we all live. I suggested doing it in such a fun style. Since my client was on a budget and wanted to test this idea first, I did it in a sketchy style as it's pretty easy for me. I drew each illustration from an hour to two hours to ensure we stayed within my client's budget. Here is a set of illustrations in a reduced form.

  • Designing Cards and Icons for a Dark Fantasy-Themed Card Game

The Event Cards, on the other hand, do not have icons but all necessary information is conveyed through text on the card.

    In addition to the card designs, I also created a series of illustrations for this card game, which are showcased in my portfolio. With my designs, I aimed to create a captivating and immersive game experience that would appeal to fans of dark fantasy.

    Task: To create artwork for unit tokens, faction tokens, and creature stat-altering tokens for the tabletop card-collecting game "Ashentaron: Revival".

    The unit tokens are placed at the top of the design, followed by the faction tokens, and finally the creature stat-altering tokens.

    There are seven factions in the game, each requiring unit tokens. The unit tokens are arranged from right to left in the following order: Life, Technology, Order, Nature, Chaos, and Death. The Neutral faction does not require any unit tokens.

    The faction tokens are arranged below the unit tokens in the same order.

    At the bottom of the design, there are the creature stat-altering tokens. The green row of tokens represents the increase in defense, health, and attack stats from left to right, while the red row represents the corresponding decrease.

    Each token is sized at 22x22mm, and the game has already been released.
