    The 9cm x 15cm is print size. I'd suggest working larger, as when you scale things down - it makes everything cleaner looking. Think in scale, I'm probably going to work 9 inches by 15 inches, because I know my computer can handle it. That may not work for you.

    I'm fine with not using Russian, I'm rather fond of the bird idea. However, I think you could have said something earlier, Curly. But, thank you for speaking up now.

    While we don't have the same drawing style, we still need our work to be unified. So, having some of our 'characters' wearing Russian clothing, and Curly's not - would separate our work entirely.

    Okay, so since we all agree, let's do that. (I assume curly agrees too, because it was her idea )

    I did some sketches twice the size - 18 x 31 (it is 15,5 and not 15, is it? I'll better check again, not that I'm doing something wrong ...)
    I just don't get a satisfying pose for the magician, but I already found a first idea for the princess of wands. It's still quite Russian and without much bird-things, because I started sketching in the morning when I was waiting for replies^^' I've altered it a bit so that it's not too visible anymore. I think it might fit with curly's work, depending on her style. The kokoshnik kinda sucks, at least in the way it is now, maybe I'll leave it out completely.
    Tell me what you think about it I think I'm getting better with colors gradually.

    Hey Tag,

    I would suggest using photo reference for your pose. And try to ensure your proportions are correct. Right now, your arms are a bit short, your torso/legs look compact. Perhaps lengthening them?

    i also think it's funny we both went for darker hued skinned. posting mine momentarily.

    Thanks, but actually the arms and legs weren't meant to stay like that^^
    I'm still not sure how I should put them so I just left it open. Thought she might stand on some kind of slope and uphold her dress with the right hand.

    I like the pose, it's ... well, something different. But I don't understand what's the dark thing on the right(?)

    Uhh - I'll go off for now. Parents and stuff, already 2 AM here.

    Mh okay ... I think the hair should flow a bit more or something.
    Nice empress^^ Btw: I just read that the goal is to illustrate a story or something that is linked to the card. Must have missed that, kind of.
    On a related note, the color that belongs to the swords is actually blue and not yellow. (Didn't watch for that either ... the color of the wands is yellow, not red)

    Though often used as a form of divination, we'll be approaching it from a strictly design perspective. Each card is meant to tell a very particular tale (though this tale often depends on the reader) and has many symbols and meanings attached to it. The goal will be to do each card as a character-based (this is still chow) illustration to illuminate the meaning of the card. However, the specific meaning and the symbols will be up to you. We will, however, be following mostly to the Rider-Waite deck, with the exception that we will be using Princess instead of Page.

    Here's my second draft, second pose and second look.

    Any comments, critiques?

    I decided to keep Toucan as princess and peacock as empress. We can do some changing as we see fit to the colors etc.
