Indiana Jones card for TOPPS by AdamHughes Indiana Jones card for TOPPS by AdamHughes
This is a card I did several months ago for TOPPS' new Indiana Jones card set.

It's not the card I had intended to do, as I was working with a damaged hand (which slowed me down) and their was a miscommunication about the deadline. My original idea had Indy and Theresa walking through the Norse ruins like they are here, but there were skeletons and skulls, and a background.

When I ran out of time, I took my stufy from my sketchbook, scanned it, and colored it; much like how I did the Rogue litho.

I felt that the final was kind of dull, with nothing of interest going on around their legs & feet (all those missing skulls and skeletons), so I cropped in and made the art look like a frame from one of the movies. I'll post that next...

BTW, since I assumed everyone else in the set would be doing moments from the films, I picked as my subject a scene from Dark Horse Comics' INDIANA JONES ADVENTURES, VOL. I, a digest that came out in May of this year. A great little Indy comic that feels very much like the films, especially RAIDERS. Check it out; it's well-written & drawn.

This is really wonderful! Love the lighting and the colors, it has a nice "glowiness". The faces are great too. I especially like the woman's design, it has a very Norman Rockwell feel, and it looks like she has very a cold nose :D (Big Grin). Really fantastic job! Keep up the great work!

Marion Ravenwood: Were there women in your adventures?

Indiana Jones: A lot. But they all had the same problem.

Marion Ravenwood: And what was it?

Indiana Jones: They weren't you, honey.

I love the colour fade out from top to bottom and the browns - when I think of Indy I think brown! lol - fav'ed.

This 30's style makes me think of Doc Savage too, you probably have more work than time so's i think i must try a doc Savage picture myself...maybe not hang it too close to your excellent art though!! lol
Good to see someone still Rockin' the Indy vibe, well done sir.

Much like the Padmé snowbunny and Yoda you did, you really have a gift for illustrating your figures in a snowy environment. Adversely, you make those torches look hot and glowing. I'm just a big sucker for Indy too I guess.

Great work, Mr. Hughes- I love how realistic your humans look; awesome take on Indy. The falling snow and lack of a visible background gives this a nice abstract-esque look as well =D

Oh, man- I'm a huge Indiana Jones fan, and a story with some Norse elements would be right up my alley (I'm a nut for Norse mythology, too) :aww:
