Essentially i want to make something of all my old Pokemon cards. Currently my idea is a sort of mosaic of the energy cards as they have nice colours and I have hundreds of them.

I NEED IDEAS FOR A DESIGN!

The cards are about 2:3 in size (ratio of top to side length) and i am thinking of glueing them on an unfolded cardboard box as a sort of canvas, so overall size isn't much of an issue.

In terms of colours I have:
LOTS of red (fire type)
LOTS of yellow (electrical type)
LOTS of orangey-brown (fighting/rock type
Limited light blue (water type)
Limited purple (psychic type)
2 green (plant type)
2 grey (normal type)

and essentially unlimited dark blue with pokeball and logos as I can flip over any card and use the back as a colour.

So yeah, any suggestions on what to make?

And as much as I love "PENIS!1!!! LULZ!" suggestions, actual suggestions will also be appreciated.

EDIT:

This is all the cards I have available (not as many as i originally thought) so if ye want ye can arrange them and make a picature, and who knows I MAY MAKE IT AND PUT IT UP IN MY ROOM!

Move the cards about using paint (or copy and paste the pic of the back of the card as i have as much as i need of them). Ye can add detail in black id ye want as i can do that with spray paint and stencils! HAVE FUN!

Or make a pokemon out of pokemon cards.

Why don't you make pixel art?

I'm not quite sure what ye mean by that, but I am essentially using the cards as pixels if that's what you mean. Just rectangular card ones. I need a picture I could make from these particular "pixels".

Make a Digimon.

Just to fuck with people.

Since I have a younger cousin that played it, and I wanted to ween him onto Magic, I know exactly what you're talking about.

Anyway, if you're planning on something with energy cards, I'd say first cut off or obscure the top part of the card that says "ENERGY" nice and bold. Alternatively, cut the energy symbol out of the card, so you just have a quarter sized piece, and arrange as many as you like on the poster.

Hmm i didn't think about cutting them up...
Though i would preferably not, as that way i can arrange and visualise the design before permanently damaging the cards. We'll see though.

I don't know why i didn't think of making a Pokemon immediately, that would probs work...
It would need to be a Pokemon only featuring those colours i listed though (or colours that could be replaced with those without looking odd). I could plausably do some spraying using stencils for detail in black though.

I don't have any suggestions on what to draw. But just wanted to point out that if you have a ton of cards, you can just overlap two cards together to make a square



Much easier to work with than rectangles, especially if you are copying sprites.

Ah cheers, that could help if i find a nice pic. Know any sites where i might find a gallery of the actual low res sprites used in the games?

Ah as flamboyantly gay and girly as that may be, it would be lovely sticking whatever pokemon I make in a big heart! Good idea!

you have red, yellow, and "orange". so you should do a massive charizard...and use the stencil work for the details.

Ah cheers I thought those links were broken for a mo but it's just the url ends without the bracket

Thankee that site should be useful, though i think I may have to go for Pikachu over them as he is the classic and if in a red heart, a red pokemon won't work.

Keep the suggestions/help coming though!

dude if you have a big wall to work with, put one in the bottom left corner facing away (like "your' pokemon in the game" and one in the top right facing you...epic battle!

You could maybe attempt Squirtle or any of it's evolutions with the blues and the browns?

It may be too complex but it would be cool to see Pikachu and Squirtle high fiving. (tattoo I wanna have)

I have too many energy cards. I might try something too

Film yourself making all 150 original pokemon in a sped up animation type thing.

You could eBay for lots of the common old ones for the backs, and energy cards might nit be too expensive. Eh.

Hmm thanks for those links etc they will be useful for future projects, however at the moment i think I will indeed be going for that lovely Diglett.


here's what it would look like (though not stuck to anything yet so i have options to change if there are any better ideas!)
