Tarot Night Crawler

By DubuGomdori
101 Favourites
This is Night Crawler from the X-Men series. He is representing the Hierophant card. Basically an elaborate title for the priest. Despite the high position and insurmountable knowledge he holds he is humble. So I thought personality wise Night Crawler was the best choice.

The keys are symbolized as the highest power in church, usually reserved for the pope. The lilies around the keys symbolizes purity. There is a cross behind nightcrawler, and inscribed on the cross is the virgin mother holding her son baby Jesus.
The empty tag place where the letter Hierophant is supposed to be, has an angel wing and a demon wing surrounding it. This symbolizes how good and evil is both within the Hierophant's power and he will balance and control the opposing aspects.

11x17(inch) graphite pencil.

Kurt baby... he is easily my favorite X-Man just because of his backstory. Heartbreaking piece of literature there, and incorporating his faith into the card... I would buy these tarot cards if you sold them. I use my own tarot cards religiously, meaning a lot and not that I worship them or something, and it'd be awesome to see Kurt on one(:

He's been one of my faves too.
A beautiful piece! I never thought I would see two of my favorite things put together - tarot and the X-men! The Heirophant is a perfect fit for Kurt, spot on! Now I have to see who you matched up to the other archetypes *delighted grin* thank you for the amazing work, it must have taken a lot of time and skill, bravo.

Wow, I really love this tarot series you have going, especially this Nightcrawler one (he's my fave character:)) And the borders you've created on them are absolutely superb! Great work!
DubuGomdori's avatar
I thought the same too but take up so much time. I want to continue it but those borders haunt me. kekeke
Trigar's avatar
Darned hauntings huh ?! lol Either way, great work (even if the borders inspired a touch of insanity ;)) lol

Insanity is what makes the world interesting.
Trigar's avatar

Oh yea...he fits the image. Very nice choice. That's pure Kurt, the emotion on his face, the object he holds. He's in some kind of pain, but not broken. And of course the pencil work rules.

I'm very sorry, I forgot to leave a commenmt. X3
I love the almost penitent and humbled pose, as well as the movement of the piece. The gentle expression on his face is also beautifully and delicately done. And don't even get me STARTED on the detail. ^___^
