Hi Mallah! Thanks - I really am having fun trying to modernize them, without them looking too modern.

As far as how many times I have to do each card, luckily it is only once as I am terribly impatient with re-doing anything (my birth court card is Knight of Wands, go figure). But I labor over the pencil part of the sketch until it is just right, before beginning the inking, then removing the pencil work. Luckily the substrate I am working on can take lots of pencil and still erase cleanly, as long as too much pressure isn't used which could "dent" it.
