The Fool

By senshuu
For :iconaquafeles:'s contest.…

I chose the Fool arcana. Infinite possibilities, all going towards the future... A young boy (in this case a younger Ronou, although he looked a little different back then) with all the world ahead of him! He's poor, he's dirty, but he's got tomorrow to look forward to.

So yes, that's a younger version of Ronou from my comic Millennium, with Sky Streamer Kogen as the tag-along dog.

I keep seeing things I want to add/change. @_@ I've been up for 28 hours for some reason and working on this on and off all day. For once, something comes out looking as it should...and I complete a picture in a mere two (or three) days.

Feedback's appreciated! :heart: :boogie:

oh wow! Are you doing a tarot set?? I've always wanted to do one of those. I love the tarot.

This is a great fool!!

I'm not doing one myself yet, but maybe someday when I find a simple, nice style to do one in. And I'll do all 78 cards. All of them! O_O *nuts*

By the way, did I invite you to this? [link] If I didn't I hate myself, lol *forgot*

Hooray! It's about webcomics!

I totally wanted to do the whole sword suit XD That Spades thing and all.

The colorfullness, Ronou's cheerful determination, and the grainyness of the background that makes it look like .. um... pastel?

Thanks :heart: :D

I had trouble deciding whether or not to texturize the BG, but I like how it came out :heart:

This is beautiful work. I really love seeing how that one sketch has become this bright and colorful picture. And I think The Fool is one of the most interesting from the Major Arcana of the tarot.

ooh, I meant to comment on your LJ about how much I liked the sketch for this, but the coloured version is even nicer. Really like the little dog creature, for some reason, and the lettering & frame at the bottom goes perfectly with the whole.
senshuu's avatar
Yay thank you!
Yeah I'm glad the letters fit too, especially. It's like...+5 coolness points. XD

senshuu's avatar
Aw thank you, I'm glad you said that. I wanna be able to do children's books, too. XD :heart:
