double quartette – four of wands!
i actually finished this one a while ago but i completely forgot i hadn’t yet posted it… i still have a couple of reservations about this choice of scene in that it obviously has a sense of ~foreboding~ which i don’t think the four of wands shares, but otherwise it fits really nicely, especially visually so,,, i am defeated
I’m so glad you’re still doing these! What a beautiful composition. I’m so delighted about Zephine and Dahlia holding hands; I always hope they at least stayed in touch after the Surprise.
(also the soft purple on the walkway stones works SO well with the green shadows!)
wow what is this??? another tarot card??? finally??? looks like it !!!
the nine of swords, featuring jean valjean’s three-a.m. pre-arras dilemma time
(i realise that unlike when i managed the two of cups, there are not nine swords in here. please forgive me. nine is a lot of swords.)
Ooh I love the contrast of the fire and the warm wood floor with all the cool colors of the wall and his suit! Having his face hidden works really well for this, too.
hi!!! so!!! i’m pretty excited because i’ve been working on this for ages so… here is the first of my les mis tarot cards! the (incredibly ambitious) aim is to eventually complete an entire seventy-eight-card deck, based very heavily on the rider waite smith! i’m trying to incorporate the designs and symbolism from that deck into this one without taking the illustrations outside the realm of reality—or the realm of les mis canon, at least.
i have a couple of other cards drawn and many more planned so! watch this space! i hope you like them, and i’d love to hear any comments or feedback, especially if you’re also into tarot!!!
as you can tell i am sooo not going in any order, but here is the first of this series: the two of cups! featuring enjolras and combeferre~
this card is also dedicated to the super wonderful and lovely galvin lily ( @nozoelicchi) !!! happy birthday my beautiful friend!!!
Oh, wow this is gorgeous! I really like the way the gold of the cups is echoed in the rest of the picture (the caduceus on the book, the frames of Combeferre’s glasses, Enjolras’ hair) and the calm mood of the piece overall!
