MS-Phantom's Tarot Heroes by Dolphin-Fly MS-Phantom's Tarot Heroes by Dolphin-Fly
ONCE UPON A TIME, I SAW PHANTOM USING TAROT CARDS AND WAS LIKE "THAT'S COOL, I SHOULD DRAW THOSE CARDS OUT." However, it came to my attention that I did not particularly like the CLAMP-esque style used on the card in the trailer with Freud and Phantom. They didn't look very...tarot like to me. So I switched it up and modified my own style slightly.

Here I also tried to instill the classic tarot imagery, such as The Hermit with a lamp and The Hierophant with a staff and hand in a specific position (I think it has some religious significance or something). Some of them, like Mercedes, were a little harder--I could only do the tiara, because she has no in game (or out of game) equal of a scepter. :I

1. Aran--The Star

Upright: Hope, faith, inspiration, optimism, insight, spiritual love, pleasure, balance
Reverse: Unfulfilled hopes, disappointment, dreams are crushed, bad luck, imbalance

2. Evan--The Hierophant (for the record, this one is fucking perfect for him)

Upright: Mercy, kindness, forgiveness, compassion, conformity, a sense of historical importance, inspiration
Reverse: Foolish generosity, errors are repeated, vulnerability, frailty, unorthodoxy

3. Phantom--The Hermit

Upright: Counsel, inner strength, prudence, caution, vigilance, patience, withdrawal, a loner
Reverse: Imprudence, hastiness, rashness, foolish acts, immaturity

4. Freud--The Chariot

Upright: Perseverance, a journey, a rushed decision, adversity, turmoil
Reverse: Defeat, failure, last minute loss, vanquishment

5. Mercedes--The Empress (such ORIGINALITY I have)

Upright: Action, development, accomplishment, mother/sister/wife, evolution
Reverse: Vacillation, inaction, lack on concentration, indecision, anxiety, infidelity

Tarot cards are kind of not intended to be bright and cheery crap. But I digress, the borders didn't come out too well anyways.

eh I GOT INTO TAROT CARDS ALL BECAUSE OF PHANTOM OTL
AND I WAS THINKING it might be better if you used thinner lines, or maybe a lighter colour. coz the lines seem to be standing out too much :c

WOW THAT WAS REALLY QUICK
I would have used thinner lines, but it's pretty much impossible to make solid lines with thin lines (shaky hands). Plus, if I used thinner lines, I might as well have vectored them--and I don't know how to vector. Granted, I would have LIKED it to be ONLY the colors but the technique is still beyond me. Since I didn't know how to do that, I went an alternative route.
