new freelance gig

I'll be doing some Upper Deck art. 
The original sketch cards that get done and inserted as bonuses in sealed boxes.
No NDA yet but I've been told not to yack it up or provide details so I won't.

I look at what there is of this school of art and it tends to be a bit amateur hour.
I'll do my best and hopefully get some keepers as portfolio items.

The pay is nothing enviable. 
They send the paper, just like doing comics.
example of what I'm talking about

Added this to show Tom Moon that I created one of my grids in Elements.

Signed the contract. I guess I could start before the materials arrive.

A long list of characters you are forbidden to draw seems to be the main guideline. No Fantastic 4 of course.

They have to be in 'color' but I've sent a note asking if 'color' can be copic gray markers.

my star custom shape in case you missed it from an earlier thread, plus the misc notes I blather about...

At the tail end of my shapes is the 360 degree, perspective grid making star.

If you find my recent downloads of -fish-shields-and stars- annoying, delete them.

Just leave the star at the end of the custom shapes and you can always find it.

Checkbox, create from center, and you are a vanishing point creating machine.

Also, distorting the star into elliptical shapes doesn't matter. It's just lines going back to a central point. I distort the star often to get more lines.

And I checked Tom Moon. It works in photoshop elements. You have to copy it manually to your presets. Search *.csh to find them.

Then select the layers and 'merge shapes' and all the outside canvas area star stuff deletes itself. Leaving behind the grid.

The temptation is to always be drawing 3 point perspective when you have this grid maker. I need to ignore that temptation and stay simple 2 point. Or 1 point for that matter.
