After my failure at making a high-quality, cardstock printed version of this game, I've resorted to testing out a few sites that print cards for you. At the moment I'm setting up to print with PrintersStudio.com. Here's my preview image, and I may order these within the week.

The order has been made! Let's see how well these come out from a professional printer. Only cost me about $16 plus shipping for all 5 sets I've made so far (80 cards total).

Just to show a small trick I had to use, the original card back was based on a rather pixilated old image (probably created 20 years ago). It looked pretty bad printed out, but with just a few applied filters on GIMP, I was able to make the back look more like a painting than a grainy image:

Hey there I made a card back for my copies of these. It contains the Soul Eater Logo and the Suikoden Logo 4 ways up on a black background. If you want I can email it to you? Also, Drive-Thru Cards is another good place to get these kinds of things done. Very good site and great help if you need it from them.

Ah, pretty cool work on that one! It makes a good option for any kind of homemade Suikoden card game.

I just started working on another set this week. Here's a quick teaser to give you an idea of the focus:

Bonus points for anyone who can guess who's on the 1 card.

Wow they look awesome! Your artwork too? I've never seen the Clive artwork before that's why I'm asking. My guess would have to be Elza?

Indeed, Elza would be correct! And thank you for the compliment, hehe.

These art is all from the long lost Suikoden Card Stories CCG. I have a fairly robust collection of them and have been scanning those cards to re-appropriate the images in this game. Though sadly, I do fear I will soon run out of the cartoonish images that I like using for the action cards in these sets. I might have to start harvesting art from another source.

Maybe you could scan images from the official artbooks in the series? The price range is $20-40 on Ebay.

I do have a couple of art books. Two of them are from Suikogaiden, so I can look through that for any possibly relevant action scenes. I also have a Japanese Suikoden strategy guide that might have some randomly usable art in it. I MAY have one other art book, but I think it's art from the card game anyway, so that might just be retreading the same material.

Tonight I'll probably riffle through my books and see what turns up. Then yeah, e-baying additional material might be the next option.

I'm also looking through The Spriter's Resource (http://www.spriters-resource.com/playstation/suikogaiden1/). It has all the in-game art from Suikogaiden, which should prove useful. The only annoying part there is how often Nash is in these shots. I got nothing against the guy, but I don't want the same character appearing too often on the cards, haha.

I just recently started experimenting with tuckboxes. These are little card boxes you can print on basic cardstock, cut out, fold up, and glue together to make a pretty cool custom case for your cards.

This here is my first attempt at designing such a tuckbox. I'll probably go the extra step of getting this sheet laminated to make it more durable before I cut it up and make it into the box:
