Art for Ocicatsy!

Title: Three Card Spread
Gift for: ocicatsy
Artist: darthneko
Rating: PG
Fandom: Devil May Cry, Supernatural, Battlestar Galactica 2004
Warnings: None
Artist's Notes: I'm chronically indecisive and there were too many fabulous things to choose from, so I went for all of the above! I've also included the cards by themselves, out of the spread, so that you can hopefully see them better. =)
Summary:
Strength to do what you know is right in the face of opposition. Strength to defy convention and authority.
The Moon is the card of the madman, the drug addict and the creative genius. Of the tortured soul.
The Fool journeys through life, tasting everything it has to offer then letting it go and moving on.
[ Kara Thrace, Dean Winchester, Dante ]

These are all excellently done--especially the dramatic posing of Dante in the Fool
But I gotta say, I really like the presentation you have in that compillation image! It really adds a little extra oomph to the whole gift. :>
Wonderful work!

Thank you! I actually came up with the idea of the spread first, then went back and did the individual cards and dropped them in last. I'm glad it came together so well.

I enjoy how near Dante is to stepping off the cliff.

Oh, I really like this. I love Kara's stance and expression, and I love Dante's swagger.

THANK YOU <3 <3 <3
Oh my gosh this is so cool! All of my favorite badasses! :'D They all look so confident and capable and about to start trouble and Dante as the Fool is so perfect hehehe. What a great idea to do tarot cards!

Thank you very much mystery artist!

Now I have a strong urge to go play Devil May Cry :)

Re: THANK YOU <3 <3 <3
Dante = Fool was the first one I came up with; I had to do a little more tarot research to figure out the others. I'm so glad you like it! ^_^

This is amazing, especially Kara and the total composition.

Thank you! I think Kara's my favorite too.

These are great. Very nice Tarot cards, I like how the figures stand out against the somehow cosmic backgrounds.

They do sort of have a space theme going in the backgrounds, don't they? Hee! Thank you.

Oh, gorgeous, gorgeous! Loving Dean as The Moon, and I really like how you captured the typical look of The Fool by including a bit of cliff edge. I really love the spread look, too. Wow, great idea!

wow. I love this. I don't know who Dante is, but the other two are excellent portrayals and the cards work really well. I love the colors and the way you incorporate the character into your style. lovely.

This is amazing. I love the cards by themselves, especially Kara Thrace and the last one's pose, but the idea of presenting them on the table with that setting is extremely cool.

Jan. 5th, 2010 12:54 pm (UTC)
Thanks! ^_^ I actually came up with the setting first, then went back and did the cards.

Thank you! I had Dean narrowed down to the Tower, Death, or the Moon, originally - I actually did a locked flist poll to get help deciding. ^_^

Oh damn, this is neat! Battlestar Galactica is the only fandom I'm familiar with here, so I don't know if this goes for all three characters, but a card theme is really appropriate for Kara. I love that. :D Your art is damned gorgeous, too; such solid, well-proportioned figures, and great framing/posing (especially on that last card).

Thank you! Tarot cards are actually probably really appropriate for all three fandoms (one involving demons and devils, one involving the supernatural, and BSG with it's fate and destiny themes) and fitting them to cards was easier than I thought it would be. ^_^

Dante is a half-demon, half-human, smartassed rogue type.
