Okay, so… I’ve been playing with some tarot-related art. Going with what comes. Embracing the process. NO EXPECTATIONS. Just havin’ fun with it, and kickin’ it with ma homies… So… thus far, the results. I do need to edit a bit, and clean things up but I am not dwelling on that at this point. I had a lot of fun with this, and ended up knocking out some stuff pretty quickly. The style that has developed so far has taken me by surprise. I didn’t expect to use some Victorian touches at all. And angels? There are angels! Why? I have no idea. Perhaps I’m possessed? It was all intuitive. No planning really. Not much focus on symbolism or trying to do things “right”. It’s more about how right it feels, not how right it is in a technical or symbolic sense. Just for fun, nothing more. Working title? Oh yeah. Just came up with one of those… I now present to you, my little project…
⊰ TAROT GLOSSOLALIA! ⊱
I kind of like her. I keep thinking… Is she the moon? Is she the HP? Nope. She’s the HP.
Not really pleased with Temperance. She’s just too busy. I had fun making her, but there is almost too much going on, like a house of cards that’s so precariously balanced that it could topple at any minute. Perhaps that’s the point?
This feels a bit Thothy to me… More so than the others. Not sure why.
This is my favorite… Why? COLOR, beetches!
This one looked better in photoshop… still… I’m into the color palette.
So… that’s what we have thus far. I used source material that was royalty-free, and made sure they were high enough DPI to print in case I want to mock-up a deck. Will probably do the majors and courts to start, but might stick with Marseilles style pips to make it easier. We shall see where it goes? It’s been kind of fun, really.
