    First of all, that may be the first Zygarde-EX image card I've seen. Possibly due to a lack of decent Zygarde images, but at any rate, you pulled it off fantastically. It's easy to see how much you've improved since the early cards in the OP.

    Next, a bit of critique.

    –Regular art EXes usually have the special effect (in this case, the lightning) going around the border, not just around the image.
    –Speaking of which, I caution you from overusing the lightning. It's a very good effect, but it probably shouldn't be on every regular-art EX card.
    –Same for the background on the FAs. It's a good background, but you seem to be overusing it a bit (or maybe it's just the texture).

    I also need to know where you get the lightning. :p

  2. - Got it, I'll do that from now on
    - Well, I don't recall using it on Beedrill and Moltres. I'll refrain from using it for the next few cards.
    - Yeah, I picked it specifically for the legendary birds but liked it enough that I used it for Beedrill and Zygarde as well.

    I got the lightning from google images (just type lightning png transparent background or something like that)

    Next card will be from Sands of Justice.

    I wasn't saying to stay away from it altogether! Just maybe limit it to cards that lightning really makes sense on. Zygarde, for example, being a Ground-type and having no connection to electricity, could make use of different effects, like cracks in earth, sand, GlowBalls™, etc. The legendary birds, being Flying-types, have a connection to thunderstorms and therefore electricity, so it makes more sense there.

    Sorry if my critiquing came out as harsh; it wasn't intended to be. :)

    Looking forward to the next card!

  4. The fullart's gold lines were a pain to get down.

    :O That's a cool effect ^____^

    Remember to capitalise Stadium and italicise (before your attack).

  7. Mewtwo EX is probably my favorite card I've made!

  8. I. Hate. Gold. Lines. But these cards were long overdue. I present Regigigas EX.

    And now, the evolution of Regigigas EX.

    That FA is amazing! What program do you use? I'm looking for a new one to re-pick up faking.
     
  10. I use GIMP.

    Thanks. I'm finally getting myself to admit that Corel PaintShop Pro X4 isn't getting any faking support any time soon, so I'm switching over.

    :O
    I use Corel Photopaint X4!! Don't leave me here!

    What if I told you that the holosheet on Regigigas should not cover Regigigas itself?

    *gasps* Maybe there is still hope! I really hope the two programs are similar enough to share techniques. What fonts do you use? (I can never find the right one.)

    I do think there are effectively the same. Photopaint I think is just exclusive with a CorelDraw package, but PaintShop Pro I believe is the standalone version. I won't be able to share techniques now, but prod me with a PM so I remember. >.<

    Whyever not? On EXes, including FAs, the holosheet does indeed over the Pokémon. 'Tis only on non-EX holos that the Pokémon has no holosheet.

    And Reggie, that turned out very nicely! I especially like the effects on the regular art. ;)

  16. Trust me, I know that it should go on the golden lines only. I've tried that and it gives it a very pixelated and sloppy looking effect. It looks a lot nicer on the whole Pokemon, plus there are holosheets on the FA EX cards IRL.

    Oh, I meant the normal EX :p

    I just opened my binder and noticed my Darkrai-EX from LT had a holosheet over it, but Gengar-EX didn't. I think.

    Also, as a bonus here is a Mewtwo Wallpaper. It's 1920 by 1080.

    If you want to see an EX card or a wallpaper let me know.
     
  19. Man, no likes, no comments, something tells me Latias isn't popular.

    Once again, I am up for requests.

    Um, if we're being honest, that card is pretty, well, unplayable. Landorus-EX does 150 damage for the same energy cost, and 30 + 30 to the bench seems better than 30 and then draw 2 and gdo 50 to yourself, which means essentially 2 free prizes. I like the idea, trying to bring back set-up attacks, but this card seems kind of Lackluster. Sorry if I came across as rude, i love your cards, it's just that in terms of playability it seems dull.
