Hey CAers. January 3rd I had a brainstorm... I should really be doing work that is mine, work that makes me happy and stop trying to be a "fantasy artist." I wanted to do something that is closer to the work that has inspired me through the years. Hellraiser, KMFDM, Event Horizon, Lord of Illusions, Alien, Brom, NIN, The Matrix, HR Giger, etc. TotD was born.
I have been concepting a 22 card Tarot set. Just the Major Arcana for those in the know. The project has become a fine art/character design process instead of a readable Tarot set. I am trying not to do "scenes" and still convey the core information with clothing, pose, attitude, etc. So far, I am at card 11... half way there. Each final idea has gone through a few revisions but it is cool to see them finally come together.
Any feedback you have at this point would be excellent. The final cards will be full color illustrations with some of my design work thrown in, well..., just for the hell of it : )
The actual sketches are about 2 1/2 x 3"
