    Cool composition Ricardo! Perhaps the bodies could be really connected physically, being just one?

    Regarding the style, I'm all good for the steampunk.

    Inspired by King's pose of the Hermit, a quick sketch of The Magician. I think we could go for a more graphical visual style like this, not too many colors, hard contrasts, etc. I didn't pay much attention to the design yet, focused more on mood\iconography.

    I think you guys could hop in to MSN regularly, to better discuss the designs, and organize ourselves.

    Finally, this site is worth checking out for inspiration.

    EDIT: I prefered your previous sketch King

    nice one mate.
    I just tried to change the style a little approaching the tarot cards style that we wanna depict.
    I am not standing on the pc that much now(i just leave it open) cause i study for the exams, and thats the reason why i dont step into msn now.

    If we gonna do something exactly like these tarot cards i think it will look like rough work and work in progress.Thats why i think i am getting inspired by gustave dore art

    This dark mystical feeling is lovely

    lets keep up

    btw i have checked the link with the tarots , very nice to learn the story

    Well we could still set a time to meet online. I'm available most of the time, except saturdays

    Which cards exactly are you refering to?

    Gustave Dore's work gets its mystical feeling due to high contrasts.

    Anyways, I worked a bit more on the last mage image, because I thought some things looked wrong. Still need to make him more steamy!

    And 3 sketches for the Four of Pentacles. Its a card about holding on to your wealth, egoism, etc.

    nice sketches mate.
    I am refering to the reference cards that ricardo posted.If we gonna do something like that (simplified style) i think the finals will look like WIPs and unfinished stuff to the eyes of others.But there must be some combination for that.A way to be simplified but still interesting as a character design
    Thats what ricardo proposed.To avoid doing the classic style that everyone will do and do something different more close to these cards from the refs

    Aye I we could try going for a more simple thing... I'll give it a try tomorrow or sunday.

    Gave this one color just for kicks, we probably ain't going to use it if we do go for simplification, but anyways.

    Also, you can give other crits other than "nice sketches" ya know

    lol i know, but since we know that we must change the style somehow, i thought there is not reason to throw a strict critique.ANd its in the beginning so i actually liked them.And this last one really much.I like the style of the brushstrokes and the more dark feeling than the previous of the magician.+ some texture feeling here and there.
    I dont see any anatomy issues on this one , only the face seems to need some more definement and reproportion but this will be visible when you render it.
    Thats really a lovely piece, and if we do not change the style can become a really awesome card

    Btw i understand and sorry for not being that active, i just try to do everything in my free time that is limited now.Have to try and be more active here

    Hello mates!

    Nah it was only a proposal, talking with Morgado via msn and thinking it more slow, maybe would be better to go for this style we do better, or we really like more, this will be reflected in our finish card. Maybe there´s no time to develop these simple style to make it enough succesful. moreover, I live very much the ressults I see here in your both cards, so my opinion now is leave it for another chance..
    well I see Kingkostas card more inclined to sci-fi or retro-future than steampunk, but personally I would like more to do it sci-fi...
    In the case of Morgado it looks more victorian, in the aspect of the suit and general aspect, but I miss some in-basis tecnological elements. The pose has relationship with the card meaning but In my opinion it lets less ways to personalyze her like steampunk (a weapon, some rare equipment..) maybe put some tech in her column/ass? but ofc you allways can add elements in the background.
    later i´ll put more sketches.
