HP Tarot - 6W Victory

By Ellygator
(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 fire and will that impulse translates into triumph and victory. We find acclaim and public recognition, are able to settle conflicts and treat them as a means for growth and as opportunities. We enjoy a spirit of fair competition and can trust in our abilities.

For the card I thought the bumper score of snatching a snitch in quidditch would be a good way to show the moment of victory. The six wands are symbolized by three goal posts and three brooms.

Thank you! That's actually me holding a ping-pong ball and wearing one of my roller-blade gloves. LOL!

Thank you. Took me ages to find a good reference. It always zips around too much and screenshots are blurred...

The textures on this look like they were a lot of fun to work on.

Thanks and yes, the glove and hand were really cool because of the mix of fabric, padding and skin.

Nice work. I have been meaning to make a set of illustrated tarot cards myself for quite some time. A rather large piece of work what with how many cards there are.

Thank you! And I agree, 78 doesn't feel that much until you realize how long the minors stretch... Still hope you get round to doing your deck. It's one of the best projects I've done in my life so far.

Thank you for the encouragement. I will probably get to it once my wife starts teaching and I can settle on working just one job rather than three.

Thank you! It took me ages to find a good close-up shot of a snitch...
