HP Tarot - 6D Success

(2008) 5 1/2" x 10 1/2" Pencil on Paper. Processed and framed in Photoshop.

The 6s stabilize and order the unbridled and sometimes destructive energy of the 5s and are associated with the sun, with clarity, order and energy of life.

In the case of the disks this translates into material success. The card is associated with harmony and fulness, wealth, and the fulfilment of wishes. We achieve our goals, events seem to work out in our favor, and having an optimistic outlook in life pays off.

I decided to use Hermione's abnormally successful OWLs results as an image for this card. As anyone knows who's sat tests - you can't do it without hard work and putting in your best effort, but it also takes a little dash of just plain good luck.

That's how "Success" works: you can't just sit back and hope good things will happen to you, you need to strive for them and just wish for that little extra nudge by the universe to make it all come together.

Very realistic. I love the details. I love how you use caligraphy like you were writing an official letter on real parchment. It doesn't look like a drawing,  not really. IT MUST HAVA TAKEN SO MUCH TIME WOW

Thanks! I actually did produce a folded parchment with the actual writing on it before I started the drawing.

I like your subtle shading on the paper. The creases are very convincing-

Thank you! I made this one up as a "model" so I could draw from a real folded and written piece of paper.

Very cool! Love the certificate, with all the embossing and the seals it's a really well-crafted and impressive looking document.

I doubt I'd be where I am now if I'd had grades to compare to Hermione's.
Another great choice!

I love the writing and how you drew the paper :-)
Ellygator's avatar
Thank you, I actually prepped a piece of paper with the writing on and folded it to get a feel for what it would look like.

I was very much like her in school - good grades were kind of the only compensation for not having a life...

what a fun card design! to show Hermione's perfect (or near perfect score) is very neat!
Ellygator's avatar
Yeah, and she was so upset about that one "e", it was actually funny.
