XII - The Mercury Bird by Hinokave XII - The Mercury Bird by Hinokave
Or The Hanged Man.

To put it shortly, I have been working on my own Tarot deck.

The deck will contain only Major Arcana + 1 Bonus card. The project is due 2013 February 1st.

As soon as I get this done I could work on another deck which contains only Minor Arcana.

The deck will be available for a limited number of prints, so see you next Feb and please wish me luck cuz I'm so so gonna need it! x')

===

Mediums: Watercolour, sumi-e ink and acrylic ink (white) on Canford Card (ice white, 300 gsm).

DD?

I walk the opposite way against being insanely proud of myself...

I mean thank you, I didn't even expect such honour : (

XII - The Mercury Bird by ~Hinokave
Sometimes it's hard to concentrate on the bigger picture but when it all falls into place you realize that you might not have been looking at it the way you should and all of its beauty will bloom right before your eyes... ( Suggested by Birdynum-num and Featured by rydi1689 )

That's some insane detail you put in there. But I like it from both far away and close up.

At first I was like "Huh, it's pretty, but I have no idea what it is." But then I turned it upside down and I was all like "OOOHHHHH I GET IT NOW!" Awesome work! I like things that make you think a little :)

I love the blue shapes and how they interact with each other on the card.

I'm ashamed to say that most of the blue was originally planned to be white, but am happy it turned out pleasing to your eyes : )

Never-mind. Like you said, it proved beneficial one way or the other xD

What changed your mind - to turn it from white to blue??
Reply
:iconhinokave:
Hinokave Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
I didn't change my mind... Things changed due to my own incompetence and carelessness.. and then I have to accept the fact that blue looks nice too x'D

Quite a harsh evaluation of yourself wouldn't you say?? xD

No no I might sound like a humble person but I am proud as an artist x'D. Being harsh on myself would hopefully help me get better without having to change the kind of artists that I am
