X - The Wheel of Fortune

156 Favourites
Happy late Halloween and Peaceful All Saints' Day to everyone again!

I think it will be a yearly thing for me to do a character of the Hellsing series as a Tarot card from the Major Arcane deck for Halloween!

This year's choice was Tubalcain Alhambra, also known as the Dandy man, as the Wheel of Fortune:

This card is the tenth card in the Major Arcana deck. Eligable meanings of the card are: Possibilities, Fate,  Destiniy, Turning Point, Sudden Events, New Developments

The card represents the forces that can help or hinder the querant suddenly or unpredictably.
The Wheel of Fortune is all about luck and change. The wheel symbolizes completeness as well as the rise and fall of fortunes and the message that what goes around comes around. Almost every definition of this card indicates abundance, happiness, elevation, or luck; a change that just happens, and brings with it great joy or great grief, sadness, misfortune, depending on the position of the card.

0. - The Fool
I. - The Magician
II. - The High Priestess

Alhambra needs more attention. Using him for this Tarot card was really clever. It fits him perfectly. :nod:

Great job on the picture itself. His pose looks really badass, and that Ace of Spades in his right hand is a great touch. :D

Thanks! :D I do think I will work on this one a little bit more. I coudn't work on the comic for so long, I lost my touch with drawing human characters a bit. And just because Alhambra is not that popular, I still want to draw him well.

Excellent. :D

Do you plan on making more Hellsing-related Tarot cards? :XD:

Great drawing. I have always been a fan of tublacain because of a rumor I read online that says he is a biological descendant of caine from the Old Testament. Caine in most vampire lore is the first vampire. I really want to find out if caine was the first vampire in the hellsing universe.

Well, Actually if go back to the origins of the bible to Jewish tales, the first vampire is considered to be the first woman before Eva, Adam's first wife, Lilith. I like that mythology more, but I do not plan to include it in Excidium

Yeah your right. in some lore she actually helped caine harness his vampiric powers. There is a book called the book of nod that details Caines fall from grace and how Lilith came and saved him. I think you can find a few scanned copies of it on scribd. I read some of it and it was really interesting.
