I'm not too familiar with the forum, but this was the place that Google came up with when trying to find a place to discuss tarot card designing. I've recently started my own Tarot deck, and have so far finished the whole Major Arcana and the first three Swords.
I haven't come up with a good name for this deck yet, but here's a sample of four cards. Please note that these are actually bigger than the drawings in real life, and after I've completed the deck, I plan to edit the words and numerals digitally so that it doesn't look quite so messy.
Comments? Also, I'm associating Swords with Fire and Wands with Air - does anyone have any major problems with this?
Very nice work.
I like the animal concept.
You have a nice sense of composition, and a pleasing rendering style.
I also like the hand written titles.
I don't know exactly what you mean by "edit the words and numerals digitally", but I hope you'll consider keeping them as hand drawn instead of replacing them with typesetting. I like seeing your "hand" there, and I think it integrates well with the images.
You might consider moving single numbers up to top center.
You have plenty of room there, and I believe it might offer a slight improvement in balance.
I made a few mistakes in the formatting and size of some of the letters - and I completely mislabelled three of the other cards. As I can't erase anything due to the ballpoint pen media, the only way out of it seems to edit it with a computer.
