    It begins!!! .


    A few sketches for the moon character and a color study for overall feel of cups.( the reflection is wrong , but it might not matter since it's not actual work for any particular cards )

    I love google wave and the fact we can post all out reference elsewhere, but I we need to post it for the sake of how this contest works, please let us know .

    Now I have to go to that family thing that'll take my entire day......what a pain in the ass .

    Hey dude

    The up part it's looking nice, but I'm not sure about the lifting skirt and the scroll at the bottom, they both seem a bit out of place. I know the lifting skirt it's probably to show that she's gonna show you her "secrets", but I don't think the fool gets there until lovers .

    There were more interesting shapes in the composition on that other color sketch as well , right now the background drapery looks like it's leaving a picture that had much more to show and you're losing that cool backlight.

    Sketch update for the moon, plus some love to the 8 of cups....which I'm still trying to figure out. It's difficult to picture this kind of character without the situation, but I'd like for the character to sort of "sum it up" so I can reiterate the idea in the illustration

    Aww yeah, you're right Sham. I do agree about some of the more interesting shapes in the first piece as well as the lighting opportunities. I'll see if I can borrow some elements of the first study and try to get some hot merging action going on. Should be a way to work it out. And as far as her showing any secrets, well, there is a strictly no touch policy for the Querent. That's part of the HP's job security. Wiki it.

    what amount of "sketches" on these early days (hope my final works will be close to this quality )

    I like the path you started, its really filled with classic tarot.

    Helloooo my churritos!!


    Matias: You crazy art machine! Great variations so far. The 3rd cups guy is my fav

    Ryan: Looking great!I like the lighting in the earlier thumb more though, bring back some of that backlit shadowy sexiness!

    Here are 2 sketches for the Fool. One in pose and one in repose Need models! (the color is only to show the relation between the floating thingys and the eye, and to differentiate the drapery from the hair)

    And one for the 7 of Pentacles. There's no thought behind the character yet, I just wanted to draw the jewelry on her head

    -drool- Ohmygod.... these wips are amazing. Those sketches for the Moon had me double and triple-taking! I rather like the one with the "harp" entwined in her arms. It just... has the feel of the Moon card. A great close second for me would have the be the very first gal with the frontal view, dark skirt and starry eyes.

    As far as the skirt-lifting on the High Priestess.... I totally understand that the card is meant to represent the feminine mystique and the potential for pregnancy... but perhaps it's still too... overt? Perhaps if there was an... inner veil that had not been lifted? I do like the other hands/arms added in as it gives the image more depth. I also loved the original WIP as it was more priestess and less... temple offering? ;]

    The Fool... first composition is, overall, better than the 2nd, I believe? Although I do like the precarious positioning better on the 2nd. Refs will definitely see things improve.

    I'm sure there's more to say but... geeeez.... I'll come back to drool on the pretty pictures ;}

    Best of luck to you!

    I think I'm going to follow the direction of the third one for the 8 of cups. The other two are discarded and I made 3 more that branch out, plus I tried to correct some things with the original one, doesn't hurt to have him next to the others again, maybe it could still be the one I pick at the end.


    Good luck to you too Tavarilyn .

    Hey guys!!!


    I'm late to this hot party!!! Some great plates dished out by my team mates!!!!!

    Ryan: Love her! I know it may seem odd, but I really like her showing her sexuality... her no no parts are just shadows and i think that adds just the right amount of detail. love it!

    Sham: You are still a machine my friend! I'm really loving the second and fourth sketches of the 8th of cups. They just scream purifying!

    Shreya: love that first fool. He's perfect! something about those sexy open chests...yum!



    Anyway I brought cheap beer!

    Thumbs up

    Another update. I'm trying to rework some of the things that were mentioned without hating the results too much. Still roughing stuff in, moving this, mixing that...

    I dunno, I think I can get something to work without jumping back to the first WIP. I like that one, but I decided after I created it that it just wasn't the direction I wanted to take this piece. I gathered the description of the High Priestess to be leaning more towards bold and sexual, not really coy or demure. I chose to have her lifting her skirt thinking it could mean more than what might be obvious. Her intent can still be mysterious...I mean, jeez you really just don't know what's back there.

    Anyways, More soooooon.

    Tavarilyn: Thanks, those images need a lottttttt of fixing. I'm on it!

    Matias: That 4th one is still my fav. The second one is a close second (hah). I love the whole priest-magic vibe going on there.

    Karla: Mmm sexy open chests ftw The face on the first one is divine! The first thumb looks really dynamic but I really like how iconic the second one looks, because of the strong contrast I guess.

    Ryan: Omg that is CRAZY hahahah!!! I don't think I can look at you or the HP the same way again . Really like the jewelry you have on her so far.

    Hey, Thought I would post up some reference for the seven of wands. Probably won't actually be like this given the terms we've sort of set as a team. But it's where my mind has been regarding the approach.

    Was doing some color comps ( don't do them very often..I should tho). And I think I stumbled upon what I probably want the final character design to be , let me know what you guys think.

    Looking fantastic, Sham I think any of these thumbs would be a perfect choice to pursue for the final. Though, I have to say I am really partial to the middle and last designs. I think its the strong diagonals and poses in general work well; very dynamic, strong action. The color studies are beautiful, can't wait to see where you take it next!

    V2 of the Fool. I think I will go with this one for the pose, still needs anatomy and comp fixes. The swirly thingy at the bottom is the ABYSS!
    The ghost version needs a lot of fixing too but I think that will happen once I start painting. Need to do some color tests next.

    Holy shit shamagim. Your sketches blast my mind. Also liking the other cards a lot, but I have a sketch fetish and... yeah, damn good sketches!!! You all already put a ton of work in too, which make me feel like a huge slacker. No Dragon Age tonight and back to the drawing board.

    I'm reaching my limit for this week.... , I'm really tired ( and behind schedule for other stuff).


    For now just some really tiny thumbnails, tho technically this are still big for a thumbnail ...

    Sigh.... I can barely type.

    Ryan, that's a really nice thing to say. Looking forward to your stuff as well

    Shreya, You know what I think .

    Thanks for stopping by Demario and Zack, miss you guys!

    Thanks Nighblue, yeah, those games can really suck your time, cut them of some and you'll be surprised on how much stuff you can take on .
