Hoot!

Well... Yay! This is the second card...! That... actually, it´s the first...

Llama Emoji-66 (Orly) [V3] Llama Emoji-06 (Depress) [V1] Llama Emoji-07 (Hopeless or Scared) [V1] 

Okey! Leaving the number trauma part, this is the Magician, a Bay Owl with lots of magic skills and stuff.
It´s watercolor, again, and photoshop for the other stuff, again.

I think this one doesn´t need so much explain: The Magician card represent Skills, Power or concentration, and instantly i came with the idea of a book of spells, or a Book of Shadows, for the ones who know about magic.

Next Card: Hanged Owl

These are a gorgeous set and I hope you get it finished because I'd love to add one to my tarot card collection!
I've designed several tarot decks myself, and trying to capture the meaning in the image is always a fun challenge, especially for the minor arcana.
This is not technically the first card in the deck, it's the second, because the first is really the Fool (0).

Oh, thank you! I hope i can finish all of them someday. And be sure that I´m going to put some decks for sale. I would love to see my drawings on real paper cards.
I see. Your art fits so good on cards! In my country we use Minor Arcana (we use to call them "Cartas Españolas" or Spanish Cards, in you language) to play card games. It´s not common to see people who plays with the poker cards.
So, if i had to design a minor arcana deck, i thing i would go with the desings of the playing cards and not with the classic tarot cards.

And i know the thing about the Fool, but some people says that it is the last card and not the first... So i ended deciding to put the "number 1" card, as the first.

Fair enough! I think the thing with the Fool is he's kinda free to move through the deck.

A great piece of work.
I guess that you know that it means the opposite when the card lies upside down :)

Looking forward to see the other 20. I am greatly admiring your work :)

Thank you!

And yeah, i ended up learning that after a few minutes of research about tarot cards. I want to make them as accurate as possible to the original concept of the cards.

Thank you, again! Such a pleasure to read that Llama Emoji-09 (Drinking Tea) [V1]
