This is my first attempt at bringing a playing card deck to life. If funding is successful, these designs will be printed by The United States Playing Card Company as a Bicycle Brand playing card deck.
.:Example of What Each Court Card Will Look Like:.
.:What Makes These Cards Any Different?:.
What you see before you is one of the first playing card decks in which the designs were created entirely from a 3D program call Maya (the program used for most animation films today such as Shrek and How To Train A Dragon). Traditional playing cards that are on the market today are typically created only with Photoshop or Illustrator. For these designs, each element was digitally modeled, textured, rendered and then imported into Photoshop for final touch ups.
The complex back design for this playing card deck is the core or main battery source that gives the Galvanics life. What exactly are Galvanics you wonder? They are human engineered robotic intelligence create to serve one purpose: to learn the mistakes we're made after the death of our race. Our vision was that they could evolve into something we could have never imagined during our lifetime. But until now...we were uncertain of the powers they possessed...
The decks main focus point are the central orbs for both the Back Design as well as the Joker. The complex mechanism rotates throughout its entire lifespan. As they age, the rotation decreases and the light starts to dim. Once it stops, all life ceased to exist for those who retrieve its power source from the core. It's up to the Galvanics to protect it from unwanted visitors...

.:If these goals are reached then additional features will be included:.
$10,000 (goal): Deck will be produced as is with all of the specifications above!
$12,000: Metallic Ink will be added to the back designs to give that extra special something to those electric bolts (If demanded). Also, the tuck case will be embossed.
$15,000: The card stock will be upgraded to Bee!
$20,000: Bicycle Brand will be taking off the box and the decks will be known as the Galvanic Series
.:What Will I Do With The Extra Funds?:.
All of the extra proceeds will be put towards the cost of uncut sheets for the rewards and shipping. Now here is some great news: if this project succeeds, this deck will be known as the "hero" deck and a villain deck is in the works to follow up on the story!
.:Behind The Scenes:.
.:As a Free Promotion!:.
Here is a downloadable desktop wallpaper!
After being a recent graduate from college, I took the initiative to stand above everyone else. Graphic Design and 3D work is my passion. I wanted to showcase my skills and lean towards a handful of people, hoping that I will stick out among the rest. The economy is tough right now so my goal is to set my standards high in hopes of finding a career in this field.
If goal is not reached, the playing cards will not be produced! So only if you help out will these cards see the day of light!
