Nightmares on Cardboard - DRAFT - Danny Graves
The next draft card for my "Nightmares on Cardboard" Indians cards goes to Danny Graves. I decided to use a 1978-themed card for no reason whatsoever, other than I like the "Written Kind (as my brother and I used to call these)" design.
Somehow I managed to mess up the iron fence in front of him. Actually, it's fine, I just cropped the card weird, so you don't see my handywork. He is actually behind the fence from the photo. I love layering. :-) I messed with muted the colors to make it appear more in line with the photography of the set. It's not too bad, but I think it needs a little something. In fact, looking at a page of '78 right now, I thik I need to OVERsaturate rather than mute the colors. Will play with that some more.
He is smiling in a graveyard. I can't decide if that is way too morbid or if I should just leave it alone. I may create cannibal teeth for him, giving him a spookier grin.
For fun, I added Cleveland Municipal as the tombstone topper on one of the graves. I am still playing with the coloring to get it to match the stone to which it is attached. Right now, it looks something akin to a UFO, but then didn't all the old stadiums?
