    Hope you guys like the logo I've been playing with.
    Soup, hope you don't mind me hijacking your self portrait.
    Seaport sorry I couldn't find any selfportrait or image of you so atm I just
    have a silhouette filler.

    ok So as far as the team chow goes if I'm right the cards we have picked
    are

    Charlie -

    5 of cups
    9 of cups

    Gavin -

    The Hermit
    Judgment

    Adam -

    5 of wands
    The Magician

    Sorry if I got any names wrong or anything. Anyway I'm going to start
    working on my cards and hopefully get some sketches up soon.
    Later,
    Adam

    Ha ha that's a great banner, I'll have to knock up a quick portrait for it
    I've started on the 5 of cups, apparently the title of this card is the Lord of Loss in Pleasure
    http://www.paranormality.com/tarot_five_of_cups.shtml
    So I'm running with the idea of loss in pleasure and after trying a few ideas I'm considering going with the one below. Traditionally I think 2 or 3 of the cups are knocked over, so I thought having the woman emptying these cups of their contents would be interesting twist. Thinking about having a stained glass window in the background (should make for some cool lighting), maybe with a cup motif and the other 2 cups arrayed around her on the pool edge. Then some statues/columns to go either side, perhaps some kind of fountain? broken instruments and other stuff spurned and cast aside.....
    Anyway I'll pop down the cast rooms at the V&A this afternoon for some inspiration...shame my camera doesn't turn up till next week...

    Nice start on the 5 of cups.
    I've been playing around with the comp for 5 of wands "The Lord of Strife"

    we should really decide on a genre/style we want to go for our cards so we
    can be consistent throughout.

    Any ideas?... High Fantasy, Cyberpunk, Steampunk, Western, Historic Fiction,
    Post-Apocalyptic, etc... Anyone have a preference or suggestion?

    Hey nice sketch, great movement and lighting.
    Hmmm to be honest I wasn't too worried about being consistent in in genre/style between our cards (I wasn't even thinking about keeping my 2 cards similar in genre), though if people feel its important I can certainly play along, its still early days so happy to change

    Its cool with me to keep the over all theme of our cards kind of loose especially
    at this stage. I was just thinking that our final entry will look better and more
    like a cohesive group if all the cards look like they could have come from the
    same tarot deck. For example it would look kind of funny if we had a Gandolf
    ripoff on one card, then a spacemarine festooned with chainguns and plasma
    rifles on the next one. However as long as the cards don't clash to much we
    should be able to have a fairly wide amount of variety in the individual illos.

    Which, now that I think about it, it might be best for us to just sketch out a
    few things first and see what comes out of it rather than try to make a hardline
    decision atm. <shrug> We can always pull our images together as we find things
    that work.

    Yeah thinking about it, it is team chow, be more interesting if it did all sort of gel, especially in genre...
    If we're going for a genre (I reckon we should) then I would quite like to sort of settle on it as soon as possible as there are things that work say in cyberpunk that would not translate well say into fantasy

    Looking through your list, Post-Apocalyptic is the one that strikes me like it could be a lot of fun, a little unusual and gives us quite a lot of scope, heck if we're really clever we could find our own reason for the collapse of civilisation from Global warming to a mutated swine flu zombie outbreak etc
    There's a list of famous films with this theme here,
    http://www.thoughts.gr/?p=149
    covering Dawn of the dead, Tank Girl , Terminator: Salvation, Mad Max even the Matrix falls under this category throughout a lot of the film, would give us plenty of scope.....

    Awesome! post-apocalyptic is cool with me. That will give us lots of room to
    play around, and sort of fits our team name to boot.

    Unless Gavin has a huge objection I say lets rock us some after the bomb
    (or mutated swine-gorilla flu/climate change/alien robot invasion/zombiepocalypse/etc...)

    Adam : Nice composition for the battle in 5 of wands with the light from behind. Fight scenes are cool, give you an opportunity to work some exaggerated movement and all. I'ld suggest trying to move the person being whacked over the head a little so that he/she doesn't hide so much of the "main" character though. It sorta takes the focus away from him at the moment I find. Then again if you have the "whacker's" legs continuing below the flying-body, then he occupies a respectable portion of the card and the issue should solve itself

    Cool, alright good luck guys !
