thank you so much for all these compliments ...

for Elven...
the minor arcana have the figures, but only the king, the queen, the horse, the jack and the ace
for other cards, I do not know, it would be a very long job

for a deck only major arcana is a good idea ... I'm still looking for a publisher to publish the deck ... but it is not easy, partly because it is not finished yet and I can not work fully
I print it myself but I have to see the costs

I'm sorry but I do not know what "pips" ...

Pips is another term for the Minors Ace through 10, especially when they are not scenic (like the Rider Waite) or illustrated (like the TdM).

Have you considered doing it as a Kickstarter project. You can self publish it that way.

thanks for the advice and all the compliments

I've already thought of doing a project on Kickstarter, but it is not possible, Kickstarter is only for people residing in america .... and I'm Italian.

there are other crowdfunding sites, I'm considering to do it but I have to see what are valid

I am now looking for a publisher ...

Really beautiful work here! Your shading style reminds me a bit of the Tarot of the Origins (http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/cards...f-the-origins/) - which was also done by another Italian artist. What I do like more about your deck over the Origins are the wonderful patterns you've incorporated into each image.

How about using Indiegogo instead? You could also try TheGameCrafter, which is print-on-demand and would only cost you an initial copy of the deck to get printed.

I'm suggesting these alternatives because it's a bit harder to market black and white decks to big publishers - they have this notion (which, I guess they base on sales) that colored decks sell more.

thanks for all this information
I know indigogo but I do not know TheGameCrafter (I will see what it is)

give me the bad news that they do not accept card decks black and white
even if I was going to make a color version I prefer it in black and white

I have been requested by a publishing house, USgameInc, that maybe is interested in releasing the deck.

I have been requested changes:
illustration not geometric minor arcana, cover the nakedness and colors ...
For the minor arcana I'm working, for the color seems to have accepted the black and white but I'll cover all the nudity.

I'll try to paint something but do not know well with that technique, whether in digital or traditional, will see in the future.

Sorry to dress the nudity that there are in the cards because they had a meaning: the characters "real" (hermit, the herofant, the emperor, etc.) are dressed as the characters depicting the "concepts" (world, strength, justice, etc.) are naked.
