The idea sparked. Pencils came out. Reference book. Card grid.
Off he went.
Growls where heard. A pencil came skipping across the kitchen floor. Frustrated.
Calm reassurance. All artists have stuggles.
Let it set overnight.
Renewed passion. Non-stop drawing. Coloring. Push away the eraser crumbles. Keep going.
Ask mom to read. Label.
Set. Twelve tanks. Ready for cloning (making copies.)
The game complete.
Make a match?
Satisfied. Excited. Proud of himself.
Another hurdle jumped. Another idea realized.
The Artist wanted me to record the "how to" of making the game:
- Decide on the size of your cards. Measure and draw a grid on paper.
- Pick a topic. Choose a reference book or real life models for realistic drawings... or just make fun drawings of people, nature or what ever interests you.
- Once your drawings are complete clone them (make a copy) twice on cardstock (so you have two of each one... to make a match.)
- Cover the back with another piece of colored cardstock (so you can't see through the back of the card.) Be sure to spread the glue all around (we used a glue stick.)
- Once it is dry cut the cards and play.
P.S. Favorite tank book found here.
