Daily Deviation

Given 2014-12-07
The Equestria Tarot by janeesper

78 matching paintings on one theme is just incredible! As someone with little-to-no understanding of MLP but a pretty good handle on tarot, she did a fantastic job capturing the meanings behind the cards; each suit tells a different story about a character as the cards progress. It's really nicely done. ( Suggested by chlorinesea and Featured by TheCreativeJenn )

Just use the search function. I don't know why it doesn't show up in the gallery view.

thirst congratulations with you Daily Deviantion. You made a lovely deck. the characters fits well with the cards meanings and they give your deck more symbolism for who is a Brony and a tarotist. you deserve it.
and if i had the change to buy your cards, than I buy them. but as a dutchwoman is that not easy.
I had the idea to print the cards for private use, but i need to things money for the copyshop and your permission.
and a little idea of mine was Derpy in the happy squirrel card askthecards.info/tarot_card_me…;

I'll be honest, I am not a fan of MLP. However, the effort put in to mirror the original tarot decks, down to placement and background, is PHENOMENAL. The detail and research that you've put in is amazing, and for that, this is definitely a well deserved DD.

you have a lot of patience and dedication to pull off this entire set. Makes me wish I knew how to read tarot cards >.>;

I like how with the swords, chalices and wands cards, there's a story being told through each card. I think you deserve a long rest after spending 17 months working on them.

Luna's on the Moon card. it's the way she shows up in Sleepless in Ponyville (her shadow reflected on the moon).

not a MLP fan but I'm loving all the callbacks to the Rider Waite deck, very clever use! Also the substitution of plate for club and horseshoe for diamond (helps to have the trad deck symbols worked in there on the aces!) 

I would proudly put this with my old Hello Kitty tarot deck. Please accept this llama as a token of my appreciation!

i was thinking of making Doctor Whooves and Derpy a pair of connected wild cards (with Octavia and Vinyl Scratch being another pair, Braeburn and Caramel, Maud and Tom the Rock), but that's a really deep rabbit hole.
