This angel from the back of your Dreamscapes book is one of my favorites of all your work, so I was disappointed he wasn't included in the tutorial. In isolation, on the white background of the book, I see him as a loving, protective guardian angel. I also love the color palette on this tarot card, and the black swans are beautiful. Sadly, the only thing I don't like is the inclusion of this particular angel on a card that has such a negative meaning.

I love this tarot deck, but one problem I have with it is that your artwork is so beautifully intricate, the size of the cards makes the detail difficult to make out, and I need to rely on the book to interpret them and see the detail properly (in black & white). It's the most beautiful art deck I've ever seen though; I just wish it came in a larger size!

A very beautiful design for this card - this definitely ranks among my favorites of the cards you have made thus far! I just love that you made the birds and the bottom half of him dark, like the light of his upper body has been eaten away. Very nice!! =D

Not your usually flowery fare, but I do like this cleaner, tighter composition. The lack of intricate details doesn't take away from it at all.
great piece! i especially like the way you colored in the background. at first glimpse, this reminds me of a game called "legendary wings" for NES. brings back good memories, i like it!

This is fantastic! :+favlove: For some reason it has a very Michael Parkes feel to it for me. Truely one of my favorites! I can't wait to own this tarot.
