One more card for Otho, let’s say it’s a personal quest card or whatever. I have such a large story behind this picture I won’t even start... anyways, Five of Cups symbolizes grief and loss and tons of other very sad stuff. 

So cheers <3

I don't know much about this character, but the picture is gorgeous and makes me want to know more. I assume those are scars, but with the light and background he looks like he's made of cracked stone, which would fit into the symbolism.

This is actually more accurate than You might think - when i started drawing years ago i was feeling uncomfortable with drawing scars or wounds, so i was drawing people with visible damage as if they were stone statues with cracks on the surface. Maybe something of that habit is still visible here :]

One day I hope to be a handsome, ripped old man, with an amazing sense of fashion, and a troubled past.

So beautiful.
I can't imagine what your complete tarot would represent in hours of work...

And I thought I was going nuts til you mentioned in another post you'd changed his name  ;-)

Thank You! 
Heh, I actually counted how long it would take and it's more or less as much time as I've spent playing Skyrim XD So yeah, now I know exactly why I stopped gaming XD

And yeeeeaaaah... I changed his name when I started working with this character again. I haven't been painting him since 2013 so i needed a kind of restart. And I liked this one better anyway, it sounds more Tevinter. The previous one sounds more like for a dwarf or something like that XD

I want to hug Otho, but at the same time I have this feeling it's not a good idea.
coupleofkooks's avatar
naaaaah, he's not that.... oh well, maybe he is XD
Saerell's avatar
Okay, then he'll get a "there, there" and an awkward pat on the shoulder.
coupleofkooks's avatar
Yup, I think this is safe enough :]

Love this. Your work is always gorgeous and your style is so unique and cool.

"It's really that literal? That card means 'you will get [five] cups'?"

No problem. Your artwork inspires me in my own work. Especially your comic pages since that's what I do as well.
