Hey guys,

I've been playing with an idea for switching out card that's been sandwiched. Here's the the finished result:

What do you guys think of it? All constructive criticism will be taken on board. Please, as always no exposure.

Cheers,

Lloyd

it was good, but i didn't like how it appeared.

The part where part of the card appeared than u rubbed and u could see it wasn't all of it; i think it would have been beter to rub it from the left to right.

showing it slowly start to appear as ur fingers go across from left to right

maybe that's hard to understand lol -_- sorry.

just pm or let me know and maybe i can show u on video sometime what im talking about.

Im not that great at explaining stuff effects in text.

I honestly don't think that one is particularly deceptive. I can see the card being switched in extending from the deck before the switch occurs. The placement of the x card onto the deck looks okay. Not sure if it is just a matter of practice or you simply don't have enough cover for the move?

I think its excellent. Of course the patter needs work. (As the others said, you can tell what's going on.) But I think with a bit of practice, it could look flawless.

Great work! Keep it up, and keep practicing this.

I would also say, don't say "its been switched". It makes it obvious you did some slight of hand, and takes away the 'magic' appeal of it. In my opinion.

I like it. I would just say smooth out the switch some if you can. I knew what you were doing but I actually saw it a couple times. Be careful to watch your angles a bit. Practice, polish it up, and lets see how shiny it gets!

Easy for me to say... I couldn't do it half as good as you did right now! (^_^)
