    Tarot Bi-Weekly Challenge #11 - Death - WIPS

    For those of you who don't know about this, we are going to have a bi-weekly challenge to depict a tarot card from the Major Arcana. This will last approximately a year. At the end of the year we will have the full Major Arcana. Two wips and a final are required for entry.

    The only real stipulation is that The final image must be in the form of a card, with the card name and number, not just a painting
    I will give you a brief meaning, but it's probably a good idea to do your own research.

    card # 11

    Death (La Mort)
    The Child of the Great Transformers; The Lord of the Gate of Death


    Card Number: 13
    Key Number: 24
    Rulership: Scorpio
    Hebrew Letter: Nun
    Translation: Fish 
    Numerical Value: 12

    Divinatory meaning
    Upright - The beginning of a new life. As a result of underlying circumstances transformation and change.  Major changes.  The end of a phase in life which has served its purpose.  Abrupt and complete change of circumstances, way of life and patterns of behaviour due to past events and actions.  Alterations.

    post your WIPS  in here

    FINALS in the FINAL thread


    This challenge ends midnight  Friday 29th June - we will then vote for the winning card, and then on to the next one

    Wish I had known about this challenge sooner - I would have entered every challenge! Great topic.

    With today being a day off I will try and get something done! This is also a chance to work with the pen tool which I have been playing with recently.

    rikk - very nice graphical style, nice touch to have all the card's symbology inside the character

    trying to step away from the grim reaper imagery for this one (skulls included..made him look too evil, which he ain't); more of an executioner patiently waiting for the next one in line to come to the block

    ...oh yea, this one is the black crow from the wheel of fortune, thus the iridescent-y black skin

    Small update - have some time set aside for more work this weekend.

    Thanks all for the nice comments. I like your image so far Heimdayel – especially the patient expression.

    Rikkumon, nice style!

    Heimdayel, this piece reminds me of your mage. I'm liking the horns and the black and white setup. Keep it going :)

    I'll try to participate in this one as well, although I've set most of my time on the monthly challenge this time. Maybe something with the Mexican Day of the Dead. 

     

    Edit: Okay, it's Saturday and I got inspired...

    komugura - fancy headpiece you have there! want to see more of this one's clothing design :D - somewhat similar yea, the mage was practice for this one

    wip 2 (or 5?) fairly happy with the chainmail, might have to define some links here and there - that cheekbone is kinda bugging me though...

    Re: Tarot Bi-Weekly Challenge #11 - Death - WIPS

    Another one. Experimenting with colour a bit. However, I like the black and white feel - with the splash of blue.

    Any thoughts?

    Re: Tarot Bi-Weekly Challenge #11 - Death - WIPS

    Rikkumon, the blue is very nice, definitely!

    Heimdayel, maybe darken the cheekbones a little. As for the armour details, uh, I was so motivated I kinda finished the piece in one sitting. Without card details, this is it;

     (Kazky, can this count as WIP2, with the borders added in the final piece? Otherwise I'll upload the black and whites as well.)

    Hello everyone!

    It's been almost a year and a half since the last time I participated in any IMFX art challenges. Now I'm back and ready to take up a new challenge! :D

     This Tarot Card Challenge looks interesting and very challenging but I still wanted to give it a shot!

     Death Studies

     Here are my studies... The beginning of a new life.

    Comments and  critiques are welcome!

     Cool entries BTW! komugurakingdom is not online. Last active: 06-25-2012, 11:56 AM

    komugurakingdom nice style! love the warm and cool colors! I'm not really sure, but I think his neck is too long. If you could move his head a little I think it would be good. That's all! ^^

    By the way... English is not my first language so if you see something wrong with my grammar please let me know. Thanks in advance! :D

    I don't feel confident with my first three thumbnails yesterday. That's why up until now I haven't made much progress. And here's what I've done so far... a revised version of the last thumbnail.
