Finished my 4 of Swords for the Tarot project last night and thought I would give you all a peek here. Original line drawing done with ink and then scanned and colored in Photoshop. A symbolic figure is inside the 4 swords meditating. Tried to keep this fairly simple so I din't take too much away from the swords :D:)

This is such a striking piece Murray and I think the simplicity is what makes it work for me.
Everything seems to work together....design, colour and excellent drawing. Just fabulous:clap: :clap: :clap:

Hi Artdude :D

Fantastic design! :clap: You have rendered and captured the meaning and the feel of the 4 of Swords wonderfully. [ in fact I would definately buy a pack in this style!]

I didn't realise that the Tarot project was still happening - so you have inspired me to re:visit the Fantasy Forum project thread.

Very Well Done!!


Cheers Dahzl :D

THANKS Dahzl, Axl, r4cord and Chris :D:)

Dahzl: The project has slowed down to a crawl I think. Not much activity for the Tarot project lately. I am just happy to have both (9 of Wands and 4 of Swords) my cards DONE!!! :D:)

That's looks great, Murray! :)

Dahzl, the project has slowed down while everyone finishes up their cards. I've held off on releasing the last project in order to give people some time to finish. Once the weather gets nice, people don't seem to have as much time to devote to something like the tarot project. :)

The last project will be released in about 1.5 weeks.

Hi Murray :D I whizzed back thru your threads and found your 9 of wands - and Wow! Fantastic! You have captured the feel and the message of this card extremely well too! -and your wife also did an excellent job coloring it -
you both make a really great team!:D

Anyway Well Done! :clap:

Hi Elankat :D Thanks for the info - I did have a look in the Fantasy Forum saw the swords project and Wow again -really beautiful work in there. Yep I definately understand and relate to the weather 'thing' We have had a bit winter sunshine here - and I am straight into the garden - planting stuff instead of painting - Ha Ha...:D I will keep a lookout for the next installment of the Tarot project. Really Great idea!!

Cheers Dahzl :D

THANK YOU Dahzl!! Glad you liked my Wands card :) My wife helps me out quite a bit with the color thing. With the Swords card she let me do all the coloring myself and that can be a scary thing!! Although I think I pulled it off with this one :D:)
