Coming along nicely there

You know what else I just realized I love? The little bit of shading in the border of the cards that makes it look like the pictures are 3d from the border hehe

yeah. but i love the way you shade, man. i don't know the first thing about that. i just played around with the shading of smoe of the cards, that's why there's no distict light source...

Oooh! Lovely! These are all done on the computer? Or drawn and scanned? Or both?

P.S. Mind posting the direct source (address) of each new card (next time)? So that we (those of us in slooow modems) don't have to wait for the whole page to load?

actually, both. sometimes i scan the line art for the finished image. clean it in the computer and add a few details, and colour them. sometimes i just scan the drawing for the main character, and then make a background for them in my computer (mouse-drawn).

Question


what should i do? originally, in conceiving the masque tarot, i intended that all people in the cards were to have masks, these of course as symbolisms for various aspects of life - both positive and negative, depending on the card. it was the woman in the world card who was to bare her whole face, unhidden by a mask (symbolizing transcendence), however, in doing the justice card, i thought that it would be appropriate for her (justice) not to wear a mask, since it will symbloize that justice sees through no lenses. at the same time, however, wearing a mask would symbolize that in all decisions and judgements by man, all are made with certain prejudices and preconceived notions as we all work in a certain social context or framework.

so should i let her have a mask, or not?

the draft of the card is attached...
