Interesting choice of "tower"...do you know that's the Pilgrim Monument in Provincetown, MA? Not something I'd equate with tarot, and especially not this particular card, but...interesting.

great work, very detailed, very rich contrast and quite realistic too :) the only thing that's a lil odd to me is the tower... seams too sharp for the perspective it's in, in my imagination it would be a bit more blurry around the sides (since its further away). Other than that it is still very impressive :D

Nice idea, and the piece is impressive.
The only thing you must be on alert with is the MEANING of the tarot.
Are you really sure the symbology of The Tower fits in this piece? :)

Good job however!

^^ exactly.
Well, I'll not start talking about the tarot, because I should write really a lot, but try to go here: [link] there's something explained, like, the reason why in the normal one there's the linghtning , and the usual meaning of the card - wich, I have to say, this deviation doesn't mirror prorperly.

However, obviously, new meanings are always welcome ^^

hey the image is great..but as Tarot user I'd suggest that you add "the destruction" somwhere in the background because when reversed THE TOWER is the sign of ..perilous times..hence, a lightning or some signs of ..ruins..or something might add to its full meaning:D..otherwise, the image it's flawless and I LOVE IT!!! :rose:

Headz Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2007  Professional Interface Designer
thx =) i choosed not to put such a cliché icons of destruction and let the viewer kind of fear the tower for itself and its meaning =)
