i was cleaning up an old hard drive and found a file with the original cropping of the above trading card (left - original cropping, right - print cropping).
dang, i’m thinking that one is a lot better. i originally preferred that cropping (left), but i thought there was too much detail in the drawing for a 2.5 x 3.5 trading card. but i’m now thinking the printer could have handled it.
it better, cause the card i’m drawing right now is more detailed than that.
