Welcome to the board.

My first suggestion is to study as many tarot decks you can, get a good grasp of the meanings of the cards as well as the symbolism used in them. I bet after you do that, your ideas will start flowing from brain to paper.

Also suggest that you head on over to the Tarot Books & Media forum. A couple of solid tarot books, including symbolism, will really help you get a deep enough feel for the cards, which you can then express artistically.

If you want a theme - have one. If not - not. Only you can decide that. You say you have ideas in your head. Try to create ONE CARD and see how it goes. Draw / photograph something - whatever. In the end, the best method/medium for your talents will become obvious and that's a start.

I don't actually understand your post - but - take, say, the Fool and try and create a Fool card...

im sorry i should had made it more clear. when i try to create the Fool more than one card image comes to mind. like a draconic image, a rider waite based image, a witchy image etc.
