Finally caught up with posting my most recently finished cards with my eighth addition to my Tales of Tarot Project: The Magician.
The Magician is in many ways the antithesis of the Fool. While the Fool is confident without care, standing on his unstable precipice with the belief that he’ll be fine, the world-weary Magician is confident because he knows his limitations, where he stands, and where he can go from here. It is a card often associated with precision, practicality, manipulation, and being objective. All things I feel fit Jade’s character very well. Aside from the obvious connection the card presents with his mage-like status in game, doing further research on the card only solidified my decision in choosing him for it.
Drawing this card was very time-consuming and I nearly gave up on the pose entirely because of that hand of his but I somehow managed. Foreshortening is hard. >_< I had fun with Jade’s glasses though. I have a thing for eyeglass chains. :’>
Anyways, as always, comments and opinions on what cards you think would fit certain characters (from Abyss, Graces, or Symphonia) are always welcome. My ask box is always open and any updates to this project can be found on my blog under my Tales of Tarot tag.
