I love Yugioh cards, and I love My Little Pony, so why not combine the two and see what happens? I created this for the Movie Trading Cards assignment.Instead of using a movie, I ended up using a screenshot from one of my favorite episodes of MLP (Movie, Episode…they sound the same to me. I don’t watch many movies.)I tried to duplicate the format of an actual Yugioh card to create this. I used 12 layers in all, including the background, border, title template, text, and drop shadows. The background is a mix of a tile filter, and a multicolored gradient.
I took a screenshot from an episode called Lesson Zero where Twilight only has 24 hours to submit her weekly friendship report. She ends up going crazy because, as a straight-A student, the thought of being tardy is devastating to her. She ends up going to extreme lengths to make up a report to turn in. What this episode and the card have in common is that both are results of waiting until the last minute to do something. Only when the player’s life points are almost gone can this card be played, and when it is played, it deals an immense amount of damage to the other player’s life points or card. (Life points are like…points that keep the game in motion. If you lose them all, you’ve lost the duel.)
There’s already a kid-friendly version of MLP Trading Cards, but I figured mine is what they would look like if they were characters that you could actually battle each other with. If they all looked like this I would TOTALLY collect them all!
