    Sometimes fakers just need a challenge. Perhaps trying out a new mechanic, a new blank or even a new aesthetic. But sometimes, that’s just all a breeze or simply not in your ballpark. So how about a quantity challenge instead? How fast can PB make quality cards? Let’s find out.

    Welcome to PB’s Fakers' Marathon! This is a community 7-day event where the entire PB faking community will attempt to make the most image-based cards they possibly can within a single week. Anyone can participate - the text-based to the image-based, the beginners to the advanced! All you need to do is to be a PB member and read the rules below. If you’re new to this faking business and are keen to participate, check out our faking resource thread here.


    How this Fakers' Marathon works:
    • The aim of this marathon is to make as many cards as possible using appropriate resources and software (see this starter’s guide). These cards can be of any (yes, any) Pokemon (fakemon or official) you like. Duplicate species of Pokemon from different members are allowed. You want to make a Trainer card or an Energy card? We'll even accept those, too!
    • Both text-fakers and image-fakers can participate! The text-fakers can provide the spoilers for the image-fakers, by simply posting them in this thread. This is an important job, since it is quicker than the image-fakers designing spoilers themselves.
    • Artists are more than welcome to make art for cards!
    • To submit cards, simply post them in this thread. For obvious reasons, it is better to bulk post rather than individually post each card. We also ask you to post a link to the card underneath the card image, so it is easier on the host to log.
    • The host will be looking over cards to make sure they abide by all rules. They also will count and log each card.
    • This marathon begins IMMEDIATELY and will last seven days, ending on Sunday, December 29th at 11:59:59 PM PSD. Here's a handy countdown timer if that's not your time zone.
    • Points are scored as follows:
      • Text-based - 1 point
      • Image-based - 3 points
      • Holosheet - +1 point
      • Gimmick (GX, Prism Star, Gold Star, LEGEND, etc.) - +2 points
        • +2 more points if you create a new gimmick
        • Using multiple gimmicks does not give you extra points
      • Texture - +2 points
      • Custom Blank - +1 point
      • Full Art - +1 point
      • Own Art - +3 points
    Rules:
    • All cards must be quality. They should not be scrappily put together. This means the correct fonts, symbols and placements should be used. The host has the right to reject any card if it is not up to standard.
    • Players may use any blank, official or custom.
    • Card generators of any form are NOT allowed, as this defeats the purpose of this marathon.
    • All cards submitted for the marathon must use this [link] symbol as the set symbol at the bottom right (or bottom left for SM-era cards), created by @bbninjas and traced by @Nyan
    • All artwork used must be used with permission from the artist and be credited on the card itself. We have compiled a list of artists that give their permission to use their art here. You're more than welcome to seek other artists and not reserve yourself to the list.
    • Cheating the system by submitting replicas of cards that you’ve published online before the marathon has begun is not cool. Same situation with submitting cards that are extremely similar to ones that you’ve already submitted for the marathon. These will not be allowed!
    • You may not copy the text from the official cards. Any instances of this will lead to immediate removal of the card(s) and docking of 5 points!

    Deadline: Sunday, December 29th, 11:59pm PSD
    Here's a countdown timer for your benefit: [link]

    THAT'S ABOUT TO CHANGE

    Let's start this off with a bang, Salamence BREAK, using the custom SM BREAK blanks I finished today!

    Though it would be fun to make some cards out of these. I was right! I'll probably do a few more. :D

    I don't make Prism Star cards often, but I reckon this Ability is too powerful to not be on a Prism Star card.

    Also skipping FM04 for now because I don't have spoilers for it yet. I'll get to it sooner or later. :p

    I found this art a while back on endless-whispers' dA page, but have been sitting on it for a while because I really wanted to put it in the ex era, and Delta Species ex blanks didn't exist in the community for a long time. Fortunately, since then, @AwesomeEevee / metagross101 has made those blanks, and in beautiful high quality, too. :D

    Aaaand here's FM04. I guess I haven't actually finished any ex cards yet, so I guess I'm debuting that with this contest, too.

    I think my favorite part of this card is the choice of flavor text. I'm picturing this epic fight between Groudon and Kyogre and then this little green snake comes out of the sky and goes all "KNOCK IT OFF! >:O"

    I edited asche's BWXY blanks a while back to make Plasma variants; that was around the time I used them to make a Plasma Garchomp. This is only my second use of them. Hope to use them more in the future. ^.^

    The art is from one of the BLW theme deck wallpapers. I'm pretty sure that's 5ban, but not 100% certain.

    The tinsel holosheet is also by asche, while the reverse one is by Neko.

    EDIT: Oh, and the lightning effects are a free stock photo thing that I warped a bit.

    More Plasma! \o/

    The Jirachi art is from Pokkén Tournament. The background is by me, save for the lightning effects, which are, again, stock images.

    Base blank by asche, edited to be Plasma by me. Holosheet also by asche. ^.^

    Have some Snivy love! With crazy energy acceleration!

    Also I went and changed all the names of my cards from "Chibi" to "Toy" because it sounds better and apparently that's what they're called in the Rumble games.

    Got some unique effects coming through. I don't think I've seen any cards that interact with the Pokédex info other than some trainer cards here and there.

    Also experimenting with putting form names on the cards.
