Supercard II/Class of 2016

In a tradition laid down only a few months ago, I thought it adequate use of my quiet afternoon to sort my second lot of wrestlers into a pack of trading cards. A rather different style, this time, as I feel this bunch is generally edgier than the last – this has allowed me to go rather Photoshop happy with gradients. There’s no wildcard this time, sadly, but the much sought after ‘supercard’ has made a return visit!

Whether any more will come in the future, I’m not sure. They’ve again been great fun. Throughout these series I’ve been progressively ticking off a list of potential candidates, and many are left waiting. I do have some other ideas in terms of execution, too – we’ll have to see if they pan out!

For now though, what better way to round off the year than with a class photo?

They may look a troupe of burly, unforgiving chaps, but they ask me to wish you a very peaceful and prosperous 2017. Indeed, I’d like to say the same; enjoy yourself this evening if you’re up to mischief, and I hope next year brings you all that you want from it.

Oh, and speaking of traditions… though I’m not sure the Countdown clock takes into account this ‘leap second’ business – hat tip to JP and Guido, there – so you’ll have to bear that in mind!

To 2017! x

      Oh, sorry Camilla – I didn’t knowingly unfollow. Strange. Thank you for letting me know, I’m back on board both now.

  5. I’m still catching up… this is fabulous, Jacob!! What an awesome menagerie you’ve assembled here. Definitely ready for trading. Hope you have a fantastic 2017 my friend! 😃💕

  6. There is an insane amount of work there! Great idea turning your drawings into trading cards! The style of the work certainly lends itself to such a use.
    I hope your NY was marvellous! And if so, may it continue to be so, with regular visits from the Inspiration Fairy, and the Good Luck Godz. I know it’s all just another day/ another year really, but I do kinda think 2017 feels better than 2016 already. I feel hopeful. Sending some of that hope through the ether in case you needed some!

      Thanks! It did take a bit of refining but once I got the templates down, it was primarily a matter of just switching colours here and there. I was going to try backs with some ratings and biographical info, but got a bit exhausted! 😛 and I wanted to get this completed before 2017 made its entrance.

      It seems that most people are glad to see the back of 2016, really – 2017 can only be better, you have to believe! As for New Year: it was very quiet, actually! I stayed in and didn’t really do anything special to see it in. That’s fine by me, though – I really can’t abide the forced jollies that come with it. I hope yours was nice, too, and I’ll be sure to allocate the fairies and gods equal working hours down-under. 🙂

      • Well, nobody can accuse you of not being dedicated, that’s for sure!
        Aww, glad you had a lovely NY. Mine was equally quiet….which was really nice. Good to see that you’re already off to a productive start to the year!
