Title: Vincenzo D'Ippolito
Post by: Chenduz on September 29, 2014, 03:39:42 PM
Hello everybody,

I recently worked on the Wacky packages Oldschool Series 5 sketch cards.

A few people asked about my return cards, that's why I started this topic.

Well here is the first one of ten:

Delinquent

(http://s5.postimg.cc/bgzfi6bmv/WPOS_s5_Return_Card_1_of_10_Delinquent_in_300.jpg) (http://postimage.cc/)


I used copic markers, acrylics and I airbrushed the background.

I want to give the forum members first hand here before I'll send him off on ebay.

......to be continued

Thank you very much BumChex!  :great:

Unfortunally this card won't make it to the auction, cause it is sold already.

I still have a few blanks left, if you are interested in a return card. Feel free to message me  :]

Vincenzo, just terrific!  I love the airbrushing in the background.  The 1970's Wacky's used a ton of airbrushing and it's something I wish would make a comeback.

Thank you Joe!! I love the old classis WP's the most of all.

Maybe we should all fill our guns(airbrush pistols) and make some new/classic characters, I have mine on standby :D

Altough Mosquita, Nyt-Owl and Woozy Willy are def amazing new characters, with that Oldschool feeling, thanks to Dave Gross!!  :great:

He was refering to utilizing the shape of the sketch card into the art work.  Not just drawing on the shaped card.  Meaning a boxed shape card is actually a box drawing, same with the can and bag.  Like I showed you for Ratz

We just can't all do the same concept on those cards, that's why I chose to give them a diferent look(I applied my airbrush on most of them)
I'm glad that people have different tastes, we can't all like the same cards :P

And your Ratz card is going to look like a rad box shaped card!  :great:

Vincenzo, I also noticed you have a few Sketch Orphans (sketches for a Wacky gag that is not yet published) in there.  XXL-Men is a Paul Harris gag painted by Brent Engstrom that was going to be in WP 2014's 'Ridiculous Reads' sub-set but was replaced by Richie Retch.

Thank you very much Joe!!

I enjoyed making these cards very much!! I'm learning more everyday in this wacky world! ..... I just LOVE those oldschool characters they are the best ever, but I can't ignore the new characters, there is just sooo much awesome new artwork released by such talented Wacky Artists, that I needed to translate a few into sketch cards! I also made one from your final art - Troll ups (see image below)

I did NOT know the facts on the XXl-men gag.... I saw those images posted on the internet with the message:  "new art for the 2015 series release" I still have NOT openend a single pack of WP 2015!! So I have NO clue on what all the new artworks are in the set, I hope to receive a box soon?! Thanks for the update..... I need this info! haha.....

Stay Wacky y'all!

I enjoyed making these cards very much!! I'm learning more everyday in this wacky world! ..... I just LOVE those oldschool characters they are the best ever, but I can't ignore the new characters, there is just sooo much awesome new artwork released by such talented Wacky Artists, that I needed to translate a few into sketch cards! I also made one from your final art - Troll ups (see image below)

I did NOT know the facts on the XXl-men gag.... I saw those images posted on the internet with the message:  "new art for the 2015 series release" I still have NOT openend a single pack of WP 2015!! So I have NO clue on what all the new artworks are in the set, I hope to receive a box soon?! Thanks for the update..... I need this info! haha.....

Stay Wacky y'all!

Vincenzo, yes it can be hard to keep up with the hundreds (perhaps thousands) of Wackys that have been done.  Brent did post XXL-Men on his site but it has yet to be printed as an official sticker.
Thanks for posting your Troll Up sketch, it's fantastic.  I thought I was done buying WP2015 but I'll have to keep hunting to see if I can snag it!

Yes Joe, you are def right, I must have lost track somewhere on the ones that where planned for the series and the ones that have actually made it to the series, I hope they will show up somewhere one day! I hope you get Lucky then, I only made one Troll-up sketch card in this set!! I also have to buy a box, I need to complete myself a set, I also saw that on some cardbacks there are Garbage Pail Kids!! I need this set more then ever!!   ;D

Here I am again, I almost forgot!

Im very happy to announce that a new series of Wacky Packages coming out within a couple of days. This time Topps combined MLB's baseball teams with some wacky new artwork! I have drawn several sketch cards for the Wacky Packages 2016 MLB set and was also asked by Topps to make a tutorial video for the fans, so I did! I really hope you guys enjoy it and get a better view of how I make my sketch cards, this video is speed-up and compressed in 4 minutes, the actual run time was approx 38 minutes. Feel free to ask any questions, i will also post samples of my finished sketch cards later this week. Enjoy everybody and stay Wacky!!  :]

I had SO much fun doing these WP sketches again after such a long time (MLB set didn't count for me!) I hope you will pull one off course! I think there are some solid sketches out there this set, as I've seen some great artwork from all other artists as wel  :great:

Thank you Scot!!  8)

Yeah. It is definitely fun to get new cards that you haven't gotten yet. I might be barely half way with my 1-16 run but it gets more fun the more ones you get that you need. (Especially rare ones.) Choke Wagon is even harder because of its tendency to be off center. Mine isn't even close to being center vertically. Of course, I'm pretty excited for something I just found on ebay that is pretty rare. Expect a good post in "This Week in Your Collection" soon.

Did you start your original WP collection yet? If so, how far are you?

Yes, I agree, obtaining "new" cards and crossing them off from your list is the best feeling in the world! I didn't even proper start on the OS1-16 run yet! :o  .... Although I'm glad I had a chance to start on all the  all-new stuff after almost completing my Garbage Pail Kids collection. I got a long way to go! ....  And I'll keep an eye out on "This week in your collection" !

Great taste.  ^-^

Thanks, for pack inserts I make my own selection, for WP 50th pack inserts I only did Original Series, I'm not a HUGE fan of all the ANS stuff and after that, few titles per set only. Then Tobacco, alcohol and nudity gags are not allowed anymore. So that also narrows it down a bit. As for Return Sketches I always let the client choose what the subject matter should be.  >:D

That really caught my attention also! Interesting how a relatively small thing can make a big difference in the expression.

And, as much as I'd like the Crust signature label to be eliminated (as it often gets in the way of the artwork), it's use for Umbrella is awesome.

It is really fun to play with the character, changing small things chances a lot! That's why I think every card has it's own "life" .... and YES! I also agree, the "crust" label is fun on the old school set, but I actually prefer the card stock to be like ANS sketch cards, small WP logo a coloured border and lots of space to draw, it seems the "crust" labeled stock is now mandatory on all series :(  .... Yes that Umbrella one is made for it, let's see where it lands, just a week before the set finally comes out?  :-\

Wacky Packages Old school 6 is finally for sale at Topps.com, a little disappointing IMO how they went for the "online clear box sale", instead of the traditional packed box with wrappers and all, BUT we can finally enjoy some great new artwork from David Gross and concepts by the late Jay Lynch. I hope that my sketch cards will land at most of you as they include 3 sketches with the 150$ option, with that being said here are a few more of my sketches I've created for the OS6 set, enjoy!!

Hello Wacky Collectors,

I just received a heads up from Topps HQ that I'm NOT included in the upcoming Wacky Packages 2018 set, as something went wrong with the approval process of my sketch cards.
To make a long story short, Chenduz sketches are not to be found in the set. Also am I NOT allowed to post any scans of any card that I've drawn, therefor I will also have NO returns available.  :sad:

I'm pretty bumped out and wanted to share that with you. I hope everybody still enjoys the new series and have fun building your sets and hitting big on your pulls, there is some superb artwork to be found in this set and also are there some amazing sketch cards to pull from great artists!

Good luck to everybody and stay Wacky!!

Cheers.....  :great:

Hi everybody, I was looking at all my previous posts and I just found out that 99% of all the images are gone  >(

I've uploaded them with the postimages.org website..... except for the ones you still see, those are with another website: imgBB, does anybody know how I can fix this, looks pretty boring this way.

Thanks!

There are two different "postimage.org" segments in each image tag, that you see when you click the reply button.

I believe changing the second one is the one that works, per Scot's suggestion. In case there are scans you want to save.

Can you see these two images below? They view for me, after I made the change. They're old images in this thread we can no longer see  :'(

I think you need to update both of them, for the zoom feature to work. That was my experience, anyway.

Good point. Some images you need to click on to view the larger size - the "zoom feature".

(other images are full size already, like this old one that has disappeared, that can be fixed with only the second tag update)
