Wands = Wings. Although not true dinosaurs,I wanted to feature flying reptiles
Chalices = Fins? Maybe? I want sea reptiles for these, but am unsure as to what to associate them with.
This is Ah-mazing. I've been obsessed with dinosaurs since I was a kid and am so excited about this.

For wands what about using sticks or tree branches? Definitely around in the dinosaur age and applicable to flying dinosaurs.

And for swords, maybe using bones? Like rib bones or something?

I love the idea of jewels (or maybe sea tumbled rocks or shells) for chalices/cups.

At any rate, your first two look incredible and I can't wait to see more!

Today I've got a not yet finished ankylosaurus posing as the Hermit. I'm going to add in fire flies as a makeshift lantern.

Finished up The Hermit card, here is the colored WIP:

Now onto The Fool!

I plan on making Mononykusí foreclaws a lot smaller and re-working the Maelestes scampering at his/her feet. Haven't decided on colors yet...
