For a while now, Ive been thinking about drawing my own animal themed tarot, as many of the decks I see around arent really me. I have a few ideas which I really like, that I dont particularly want to change, and I have some vague ideas (which Ill put in italics). I was wondering if people whould be happy to help me out by bouncing around some ideas for cards I have no ideas for?
Im just going to concentrate on the major arcana for now (although I do have a pretty good concept for the swords suit in the minor arcana involving porcupines
) as I dont want to get swamped early on. Keep it bite-size.
I'll likely do these in my fine-liner pen style.http://bluetabbycat.deviantart.com/art/Tabby-Bun-651092113http://bluetabbycat.deviantart.com/art/rev-lines-666577936http://bluetabbycat.deviantart.com/art/Nosferatu-588529125
