EDIT: added most current image drafts.
EDIT 17 Mar: going to send art to Round 7 cutcard buy here:
https://www.pokerchipforum.com/threads/round-7-cut-card-interest.54089/#post-1033064
----

So I have something in mind but I'm not artistic enough to make it happen. I'd like to generate / produce some new artwork to complement the DDLM theme for cut cards and a bounty token.

For the cut cards im thinking of a skull guy bending over a table dragging in a bunch of chips after winning a hand of poker. The second would be simply a original artwork variation on the 5k plaque showing a group around a table playing cards like attached from pinterest. The bounty / All-in would be of a skull guy sitting behind a table, similar, holding a money bag in each hand, and all would need a border around them to complement the theme. Bounty back of the token would have a... Dead skeleton, with a chalk outline and maybe some yellow evidence markers by the money bags he dropped.

I put some feelers on fiverr to a couple artists that work in a similar style for quotes. My trash sketch below is a rough concept.

If there's enough interest I would get the illustrations along with commercial rights then make them available to the community here and Gene & Potsie for production and try recoup maybe a buck per item on an order to cover the $20~ish artists fee or whatever it comes to based on totals.

Rate my artistic skills. Guess which one I did?!

I am quite certain a PCF'er owns the design work to the DDM's. I think it would be best if you worked thru him.

I like the idea. Count me in.

Very neat idea. I agree with @Mojo1312 that you should go through official channels for the artwork. If it materializes, then I'm in.

I'd be interested in cut cards!

I'm having some of my own custom bounties made with a sugar skull that my son drew , but I'm a sucker for these chips so I may be interested in bounties too, depending on the design.

He is my first choice, I shot him a couple messages to see if he's up for it. If not then I'll go another direction. Just trying to see how much interest there is for now. I alredy got these coming :D

As others have said, this can be slightly different than a casino tribute, since this is owned artwork. I think using your own artwork would be fine. If you're reusing the plaque art, I think you would need permission.

Absolutely, I asked puzzle and he indicated the same. The set art can't be reused. No reuse is planned!

For the set art, I believe so. I just heard back from the original artist and he has declined to produce additional art due to time constraints, so I'll be outsourcing for an artist

What about this for the cut card? It's from the original DDLM post. (Without the $20 and border - so it's just a bunch of awesome dead dudes in a western setting)

The artwork from the set cannot be reused due to existing agreements *. I have commissioned a graphic artist to produce original artwork to complement the set though. I will share it here once they deliver the new illustrations.

Ah I didn't catch that detail. Thanks! Can wait to see the new illustrations.

First draft is in, couple more illustrations still working on the commission but here is a tease before color gets added.

Cutcard #1 draft, adding a cigar & a drink.
View attachment 421791

Oh that's nice! Some of my observations (not being critical, just offering an opinion):
  • Cigar/drink addition is fine; but it shouldn't block any of the head artwork since that's a big part of the image
  • The table felt feels a little plain - maybe some fancy DDLM style curls and twirls?
  • We've gotta find a way to put skull heads on those tiny little chips :)

Oh that glass needs to be a shorter bourbon glass (or tequila to fit theme). Either way, it's the same glass (you decide what's actually "in" it :))
