Mars Attacks Heritage

Cards 3 and 4 of 106 sketch cards done for the Mars Attacks Heritage trading card series by Topps.

With a large stack of cards to do in a short period of time I tried something new here. Repeating, yet tweaking, images and playing with grey tones.
I wasn’t sure if the first pair was the way to go, so here we have a non-mirror image for the (sort of) grey card, with a colour background...not the way to proceed.

Mars Attacks cards first appeared in 1962, conceived and produced by Len Brown, Woody Gelman, Wally Wood, Bob Powell and Norman Saunders.
The Heritage card series is celebrating the 50th anniversary, which is now already reportedly sold out…
