I finally came up with a concept for the High Priestess and am pretty excited about it. I also really like my Empress rough sketch I did a while back. Before I draw them "for real," just thought I'd see if anyone has feedback for me on elements and composition.

Holy Cow!! You sure are good at art work...I admire that so <3 If it were my drawings we still be at stick people :)

These are beautiful, @Day Soleil .  What I especially like about The Empress is that the woman doesn't have a "perfect" body - there need to be more cards like that.

Thank you, @Night Shade! Yes, I agree. Plus that model is such a lovely, nurturing human being - I knew I had to find one of my sketches of her to be the Empress card. All of the figures I'm using are from life, so there are going to be more unusual (or typical?) body shapes represented, as those are our weekly models.

Thank you, lovely @Raggydoll

Nice work, Day Soleil!

Thank you so much @BrightEye!

Beautiful love both of them. Agree with @Night Shade , it is great to see real people instead of photo-shopped people.
You mentioned earlier how much work it would be to fully color the drawings. How about just coloring part of it? Things you want to stand out?

Sooo... I'm thinking about doing these in grayscale, with just a smidge of color for certain elements. I have no idea how that would be printed, but that's my idea right now. The Grayscale Tarot? Gray Soul Tarot?

I revised Judgement to match more with the interpretation of Judgement as a call.

I'm on a freaking roll right now - loving it. :)

Ha! We must be on the same wavelength, @joy ! Yes, I think this is the way I'm leaning!

Yessssss! I am sure that will look awesome printed! As far as I understand you make the paintings, take the highest possible resolution pics and a GOOD printing shop will do the rest!

50 shades of gray? ... nope.... Maybe re-think the name :-)

Grayscale with or without touches of color would be outstanding, but the colored versions of the Ace of Pentacles and Four of Swords here

https://www.thetarotforum.com/deck-creations/day's-rough-sketches/msg74247/#msg74247

are heartbreakingly beautiful.  I respect that it would be a much longer, much more involved process to do the deck in color, but I hope that's still a viable option.

50 Shades of Gray isn't jiving with you @Grandma? :)

Is it the color that appeals, or the stained-glass kind of style or both? Just curious!

I think the cool thing is I could do both. But I like the idea of grayscale to get me to focus on getting the pencil sketches actually, you know, DONE. Because I have such a short attention span!

The color is the integral aspect of the stained-glass style, isn't it?  And the stained-glass style is a spiritually inspiring expression of color.  I just love it.  I know it's easy for me to say because I'm not the one doing it, but I believe the beauty of the colored pictures makes the extra effort well spent.

Are you going for quick or are you going for best?  Personally, I'd rather see a project extended indefinitely than completed for the sake of getting it over with.  Of course, if you decide that grayscale is best, that's a different story, but please make your decisions based on aesthetics, not expediency.   

In any case, your talent is great and your work is amazing.
