    I think a large cow would look great, and they walk at a good funerial pace. You could make the mount look less bulky by zombifying it. Or making it alive but emaciated / close to death. Reinforces the theme and slims the beast down significantly!

    I like the idea of a different kind of animal for the mount.

    Made me think of the Nuckelavee

    Team Chow III - Dire Pork

    That thing is less zombie, more horrific-death-monster

    Yeah, that's the stuff. Demonic mounts. Reminds me of...

    Hehe, he's cool. I like the face and it's a nice sketch.

    Are you planning to incorporate the tarot symbols blatently or weave them into the design more subtly? If at all? I think 'feather' 'fish' 'mountains' and some kinda running water all have meanings for the knight. http://www.tarotteachings.com/knight-of-cups.html

    Haha, awesome. Not sure how he would fit as a knight though. Definitely wouldn't be a stereotypical knight, unless you're planning on toughening him up with armor, which I would be all for. Throw a helmet on him, some pads, possibly a shield and a cup out which he could be drinking and he would be all set

    More sketches

    Today's offering to kick off a new week. Was thinking creative force with the first one, but the rod / wand looks like a cheap Wacom promo.

    Haha, has a bit of that vibe to it. Maybe make what she is holding into something less specific.. or maybe the wacom thing would go down well here! Liking the mood of the second one too

    I've just moved back to uni so been a bit hectic the last few days. Pretty much settled in now. Well, my PC is set up anyway

    I shall try a different pose and wand design over lunch. It'd be nice if the look of the wand matched your piece ultimately so I'll concentrate on the composition more for now, and getting all the vital symbols in.

    Yeah, I figured it was back to the grind for you and you'd be offline for a while. Is a relief when you finally get plugged back into the Matrix, isn't it?

    Oh yeah, it was such a relief.. for all of an hour, until the power went off all evening!

    My Nine of Wand's wand will probably be more of a staff or weapon, not sure how it'll be styled, but I'm sketching now

    Ah, that's cool. I was thinking mine needed to be a Gandalf-style staff, lit up as a torch maybe (as the Ace is to be a guiding force, out of the clouds and into the light, yadda yadda...). Will add more sketches myself as soon as I have them nailed.

    Really digging the energy of the first one. Very powerful pose and her fiery hair and dress compliment the composition well! I do agree about the wacom pen. A sage's staff for instance would suit her better. You could have it drawing in energy which would make her a force to be reckoned with!

    As for the second piece, I like the feel of it, too. The two images balance each other quiet nicely! Not sure if using yellow for the smoke atop is such a good idea though. It steals attention from the guy

    ..woah! Just realized that your Ace of Wands looks like her - http://music.blogs.wkbt.com/files/20...by_cahankh.jpg
    I had a feeling she resembled someone as soon as I saw the image!

    Ah, nice thought. The background of the woman / goddess-type is going to be cloudy to symbolise her bring light and clarity as she steps out of it. If I can create a clearing in a murky sky from which she is drawing light, it should look pretty powerful. The flow is going to continue through the dress, and I'm thinking of wisps and folds in her dress (probably push my ZBrush skills a bit to make it, which will be good for me too!).

    Yeah, I take your point on the yellow also. I was (very sketchily) trying to shed a positive light on the 2 remaining cups, whilst having the figure oblivious to them and still destraught over the spilt. Some internal light, falling on them more subtly would be better no doubt.

    Ha! A resemblance. Not the pic I used for ref but having read the brief a bit more I think the character should have flaming red hair.

    You're going to incorporate Zbrush into the process? Very interesting! Looking forward to seeing how that will turn out.
    I started sketching my Devil card, but haven't gotten too far into it. Just been busy with other things that I'd like to get done before classes begin, but should be posting some sketches soooon!

    Yes, I'm going to incorporate some 3D into the cards. I plan to bang together some cups / wands in 3ds Max. It'll all have to be integrated and balanced obviously, but I just find it gives a lot of freedom once certain elements are 'built' to repose if necessary. Bit like sketching in a 3d package I guess.

    My office is closed due to snow, so this is what I've been working on this morning instead. The 2 shelved cups will be part glass, to show they are full and to add some interested refraction effects. The lighting will be more dramatic, and all 5 chalices will be a different design - again, to add greater visual variety. I've worked in the 'castle' and 'bridge' symbols roughly aswell, these will probably need accentuating (the stone carving and tapestry).

    Any thoughts / ideas / critiques appreciated.
