“No one is free who has not obtained the empire of himself.”
~ Pythagoras


The Emperor is the ultimate figure of order, law, authority, and mastery of chaos. His methods are sometimes harsh and unyielding, but his results are unquestionably impressive. He is the stern voice within us that pushes us to do the unpleasant things we must do to survive.

Rendered in Poser Pro 2012. Postwork in Photoshop.

Well, I WAS inspired. Glad to be past the stumbling block. And thanks for the kind words!! He was very different from the characters I normally render, but it was a pleasant surprise how well he matched my vision.

Thank you!! :iconpounceglomp:

Thank you! :heart: Yes, all of my Tarot renders are going to be angels of one form or another. It has been fun to dive into, though my Muse has been a little slow these last few weeks. :)

Aw, thanks!! He was fun to bring to life. I rarely render men, and I have never, EVER (before now) rendered an older, distinguished man. I really enjoyed it! He turned out EXACTLY how I wanted! How often does that happen, hey?!
