Ill start with my personal favorite the Empress
Some recurring keywords are:
* Mothering ----- Fertility ----- Sexuality ----- Abundance
* Material prosperity ----- Pleasure ----- Comfort ----- Power
* Nature ----- Delight ----- Desire ----- Physical attraction
* Health ----- Sensuality ----- Beauty ----- Satisfaction
The Empress sits on a throne wearing a starry crown, holding a scepter in one hand. The Scepter is representative
of her power over life, her crown has twelve stars representing her dominance over the year, and her throne is in the
midst of a field of grain, representative of her dominion over growing things.
Our aim is to make high Fantasy character designs with some oriental mood.
here are few poses and sketches
* Materialism ----- Ignorance ----- Stagnation ----- Self bondage
* Lust ----- Egoism ----- Obsession ----- Anxiety ----- Anger
* Ganance ----- Hedonism ----- Passion ----- Animal instincts
* Sexuality ------ Temptation ----- Lack of faith ----- Vice
* Futility ----- Physical attraction ----- Pessimism ----- mistakes
Please remember that all Tarot decks used for divination are interpreted according to personal experience and standards.
The Devil is the card of self-bondage to an idea or belief which is preventing a person from growing or being healthy—an example might be a belief that getting drunk each night is good for you. On the other hand, however, it can also be a warning to someone who is too restrained and/or dispassionate and never allows him or herself to be rash or wild or ambitious, which is yet another form of enslavement.
The Devil is the 15th card of the Major Arcana, and is associated with earth and Capricorn. Though many decks portray a stereotypical Satan figure for this card, it is more accurately represented by our bondage to material things rather than by any evil persona. It also indicates an obsession or addiction to fulfilling our own earthly base desires. Should the Devil represent a person, it will most likely be one of money and power, one who is persuasive, aggressive, and controlling. In any case, it is most important that the querent understands that the ties that bind are freely worn.
Basically, I'm doing this just because the Tarot deck is just richly inspirational to draw. to be able to get the chance to design and envision them without sacrificing the intent of the cards to interpret circumstances via symbolism, well, that's my goal. sketches and ideas coming next
Janos Thanks! Posting few more now.
rumpenstiltzkin Thanks friend.
more empress thumbz
and 10 of swords sketches
In its upright or positive light, the ten of swords represents absolute destruction, being pinned down by a multitude of things or situations. The person lying on the ground, defeated and bleeding, may also represent a feeling of hopelessness and being trapped by emotions or mental anguish, since swords represent strife and the mind.
The Ten of Swords is the most grim card in the deck, more destructive and reminiscent of death than the Death card itself. Again, the dark clouds depicted above the person signify despair and a terribly bleak situation. However, upon closer examination of the images in the card, any real death or destruction, like all things, may not be permanent. There is hope regardless of the situation: the golden sky in the distance suggests that this is the worst the querant's situation could possibly be, and that things will only improve.
In the card's reversed state, it symbolizes a troubling situation that will continue for a significant amount of time. The card suggests that the subject should not despair in difficult times, to avoid ruining future prospects for success.
Nice ideas Alex, get back to you at YM a bit on.
It's really fun to see how other people think creatively and work processes as well. You gotta love team chow for this! I don't do sketches as often and this has worked for me in the past. I see what I have in mind clearly and paint my way into a piece as I progress. Hope this makes sense.
my progress so far, lotsa stuff to do yet, just sharing
Thanks Janos! I hope you'll like more parts soon other than the tummy LOL
