IDt8r: DD = Digital drawing. EmiK, why not give it a go? The tarot is very flexible, as far as style is concerned. Even stick figures, creatively used, would work. DA = Deviant Art, a website with some incredible digital art (and some wonderful sources, if you're very, very careful to read the usage permissions by the authors.) ( 5 years and 1738 days ago )

This was sort of last minute and half old work, but I decided to do card #13 Death....

Sorry to person before me, didn't mean to use the same card.

As for the subject matter, I really wanted to portray the feeling of judgement before afterlife. On one side it is heaven, the other is hell (no leaves). The soul is traveling along the river styx, hence the lost souls trying to hitchhike from the protagonist. Of course I had to put in the angel of death, but I gave him a halo of green fire to present his status. I used sort of a Vanitas theme with the hour glasses, presenting death and decay.

13 is always the best number to me :).
Notice that the Death has many fingers, not 5 as human hand, that's what I intentionally did. He takes to soul of the victim and imprison it in his amulet, eats the victim's heart and thrown to body to the river of magma...
Please view in full to see all the detail. (5 years and 1736 days ago)

Tarot cards are generally filled with symbolism. The Wheel of Fortune is a card of cycles. If it should appear in the spread, it tells us that if we are going thru a bad time now, things will shortly be getting better. Conversely, if we're on top of the world now, things may soon be getting rough. The Wheel offers us hope and caution. (5 years and 1738 days ago)

The Goddess of Freedom card is the last card of my created Tarot deck. It represents Freedom of soul. Everyone should allowed to follow there hearts. Goddess of Freedom defies Limits but to a certain level. i.e. keeping in mind the good and bad of the society. (5 years and 1738 days ago)
