    May 23rd, 2012: New piece> Emersal

    Okay here's a new finished thingy I'm rather happy with. It should remind some you of the 2-dragon piece I did a while back (which you can find in my portfolio http://soufmeng.weebly.com/).
    This time I resarched bat anatomy to give the dragon more credibility as this one is alone and the largest center of interest in the composition. That said yes there's still some pretty funky
    decorative things going on with the wing design that I wanted to keep for... well, decoration : )

    February 10th, 2012 : Original Post

    Hello!

    I am finally allowed to share formerly-under-NDA samples from a Tarot card deck fully illustrated by yours truly from summer 2010 to summer 2011 for French-based client TAROTland.

    The full deck comprises 78 illustrations, that is 22 trumps (major arcanas) and 56 suits (minor arcanas).


    I'll be pleased to answer questions about this finally finished project!


    Justice, the Hanged Man, the Moon and the World.
    Attachment 1419522Attachment 1419523Attachment 1419524Attachment 1419525

    The World, as the last major arcana, was one of the most important illustration of the entire deck. I painted it at a higher resolution and sort of as a stand-alone piece.

    The Emperess/Emperor couple. On this you can see the visual continuity that the client wanted me to design between almost all neighbouring cards.

    And while we're at it, here's the Sagittarius, a sample from the current contract I am working on; the illustration of the 12 zodiac signs. And a personal painting I made to develop the character from this piece.

    Beautiful pieces! 'The suits of swords' is a favourite. I like the whole concept with the dark and light in contrast. And of course the 'World' is just stunning! Keep them coming

    Agree that 'The World' really makes me stop and say 'woah..." I love the colors working together. These are cool!

    Did you learn a lot about tarot cards during the project?

    Hey,

    Thanks to everyone of you for the warm feedback, glad to see the work that went into these is appreciated!

    Brian Bremer: Yes I can safely say that I know more about Tarot cards now than your average joe. I wouldn't have gotten so deep into it on my own but I'm glad work made me research the subject. Also, having to often refer to the traditional imagery of Tarots has made me more sensitive to the beauty of the art of the middle ages.

    Here's a grouped file of the 22 major arcanas arranged in the original Tarot de Marseille pattern.

    Those are wonderful. You put a lot of time and detail into those. Great job!
