M1000 Custom Cards: Open Court Demons

As some of you know, I go by the name “m100” on a few message boards. I just wanted to shared some original custom card designs I have made recently. I’m looking to get input to see what design you guys find the most appealing. Please vote on the poll in this post to help me choose the most appealing design. From there I’m going to try to compile a 10 card set.

First, here are the inspirations behind the design. I love Nike Dunks SB and while browsing a shoe website, I came across the Astro Boy Nike Dunks. The colorway caught my eye and was the first inspiration into my design.

The second and third inspirations came from a pair of die-cut inserts from the 90s. Skybox ZForce Big Men on Court and Skybox Thunder Noyz Boyz.

The original design I made are the top left and bottom left cards. From there I played around with the background to have different effects and coloring. I still have the photoshop files, so I can change anything if you guys have some ideas that you think would make the cards look nicer.

I am really happy with the way the design turned out, whether I end up going with version 1, 2 or 3. They all look very appealing to me.

Presenting: Open Court Demons (set of 10) TBD. Again, PLEASE VOTE!

    nice work dude. it’s a little too reminiscent of BMOC for me though. That intricate die-cut pattern at the bottom is gonna give your production line a run for its money hehe. i know you were inspired by the colors of the nike shoe but maybe try color coordinating using each player’s respective team colors. if you’re into that sort of thing. show us more!
