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.

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)
