Commie Card Revised

Here is the new revision to the basic Commie Spuds' card layout. I reworked the ribbon after my bud Bill called me out on copping out on the Illustrator hacked ribbon from the comp. He was right as ever, and I reworked my ribbons on the entire 26 card set, PLUS my unique "Capitalist" card, pictured below, which gets its own unique ribbon and money pile center piece. Not fully satisfied with the placement of the figure, color treatment or scale, but it's got the vibe I'm looking for...

All digital, except for the initial pencil drawing. I use Painter 11, Photoshop and Illustrator CS2 (still too cheap to upgrade)

Catching up on reading your blog and i really enjoy the commie cards... though one detail I keep tripping over (if you don't mind my feedback) and that is the "skin diver" text to your deep sea diver card. "Skin diver" makes me think of mask and snorkel... this guy looks like he's recovering a downed nuclear submarine thousands of feet below the surface of the Bering Sea.

I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the cards!
