    Ha! Which one were you thinking as inspiration?

    I've put together our set, though I've not had confirmation / acceptance of my choices just yet...

    I hope you get them, it'd be cool if we were both wands and cups. I'm not sure how we'd work those into our design but it could be one more thing to tie 'em all together.

    Hahaha! Well, you'd be hard pressed to find a more expressive face than Mr.Baker!

    Yeah, that was my thinking on the card choice. Is a really interesting topic actually, looking forward to getting into it. On that note, lunchtime sketches attached. It's training for the '5 cups' or 'crying over spilt milk'. I tried to imagine the look of a man without a PC to work on at home.

    Only joking, bit of internet ref used.

    Haha! I was hoping you'd choose that zombie alien dude as your knight
    Seems like our cards could have humor as the common theme. I'll do some research later today on mine. Surely a hilarious Devil wouldn't be too hard to find for reference.

    Another lunchtime sketch on the Ace of Wands idea. Still no confirmation on this as my selection as yet, so I'd better not get too far ahead until the list is updated! Anyways, a quickie sketch based on the idea of 'fire' being the major element for this card.

    Bit disjointed working in 40 minute stints, but I'm expecting my replacement PC tomorrow so I'll be able to pick up the pace.

    Great news about the PC! looking good so far. I like the sketches for the 5 of cups especially.

    I'm reading up on cups:

    The Knight of Cups isthe Lord of Waves and Water, often defined as the fiery aspect of water.
    When you think of the Cup cards, think of the deep mysterious essence of water - an essential element of life itself.

    You're taking the fire thing quite literally, do you think we should make the elements prominent in all our designs? Still not sure what direction we're heading. I did some sketching but nothing worth exposing to the light of day, yet!

    thegrayslayer, interesting sketch. I think you should focus less on the element and more on what the card represents though. Possibly make the wand the point of focus? This reference pic might help you see what I mean.

    Ha! Well, it's up to you what you post obviously - I was just gonna put anything I can get done here as a record of what I'm thinking.

    I've been thinking about the link between the cards, and I don't know how crucial it is given that the ultimate aim is to combine all of the teams cards into one deck (chosen from the best designs). If you have an awesome character-driven idea for one of your cards, I don't think you should be tied to anything to hamper it. Not at this stage, at least? Oh, I agree on the fire thing being too literal. On reading a bit, I imagine the Ace of Wands as a character to be some kinda demi-God creating worlds and such like. Creative force being the key, not destructive (which is what I would normally associate with fire).

    Will your characters be humanoid / humanistic or are you 'thinking more outside the box' ?

    Oh, and my choices have been confirmed so we know our set now. Am going to pick up the pace with ideas and posting when I get setup.

    Yeah, agreed. In fact, the next few sketches will be composed with the wand as focal point. I've noticed on the Rider-Waite deck that the cups / wands / rods etc. all follow the same design. Is that something we want too - as we have a couple of wands and cups cards?

    Honestly, I'm not sure how we can combine our cards yet to make it seem like they are all from one deck. The cards I chose don't really tie in well with wands and cups unfortunately. I've been searching reference images for my cards, and they are all dark and gruesome. Maybe that's how we can paint all of our cards? Gritty and realistic? Just a thought. Oorr have similar elements appear on each card. What do you think?

    Not sure if you've already found this site as I'm the late-comer: www.tarotteachings.com has nice-and-simple explanations of each card with all the key images you'd expect to see featured on each card.

    AG., probably best not to get bogged down with linking these together just yet? There may naturally be a link once the designs are seen as a group. I think the main focus is strong character design for each.

    Totally agree. This is team chow after all.

    Some moodboards for my cards.
    The designs are pretty dark and straightforward. I like the idea of a skeleton riding a horse, so I'll go with that. For Death though I'm debating between a full figure or a portrait shot like on the site you linked us to. The decision will be made after some sketching
