Just added the Emperor, hopefully I'll be able to finish the Hierophant this week as well.

Wow! His composition is rather simple, but just...perfect! A perfect matched set with the Empress! He has a neat agelessness about him....he's youngish, but looks *very* mature.

Keep up the great work!

Wow, just discovered this...and I am enthralled...absolutely in love, in fact!

Everything ...from the deck title ("still she haunts me, phantomwise..." ) to the somewhat wonderlandic dreamy and surreal atmosphere...to the gorgeous coloration.

You have something amazing and delightful here.

I am very excited to see more!

I'm really glad that you guys like the deck so much. I hope it continues to meet approval, there are a whole lot more cards to go.

I just added the Hierophant. He's kind of untraditional but I think it works. Besides, I had to get my cats in the deck somehow: gallery.

Lovely

I love the way The Hierophant seems to be sitting in a library... and your cats look as if they're really listening to what he has to say.

These images have a very magical feel to them.... Very atmospheric. They remind me of quite dark fairy tale images.

I like them a lot.

Oh! The Hierophant is WONDERFUL!

as is this whole project so far!

I think he fits in perfectly with the others, and gets away from that stern Popeness, while still conveying the Hierophant's wise traditional ways.

Oh no...now I want MORE!!!! (but no rush!)

Wow! I really love the macabre art deco look you have going on in this deck. I am new to tarot, but I think you have the making of a great set here! What type of paint do you use, acrylic?

Interesting, the high priestess looks exactly like the magician from Final Fantasy 10:

Eraserqueen, thank you! And yes they are acrylic, each one is a 5"x7" acrylic painting using only mars black and titanium white, and mixtures of the two.

Sinner, the resemblance is completely unintentional! I had no idea, that's funny. No wonder she insisted on having those sticks in her hair.
