The Lovers

By Yuujin
Continuing Tarot Card serie.
"06: The Lovers"

The name speaks for itself. There are various depictions of lovers - kissing, huging, with amours flying around... But all that is kind of very cliché and becoming boring, don't you agree?

Union ----- Passion ----- Sexuality
That's what Lovers is all about.

At first I really wanted to make this card look alike to old japanese erotic prints of Edo period. That was mainly because I just loved the poses in those.
Later I got really inspired by ~bluefooted's interpretation of Tarot's Lovers - underwater love, just amazing.

It kinda makes sence, when you're in love, you are like floating, in a vast deep blue essence of dreams and warm feelings.


Enjoy!

To be compared to an artist like Georgia OKeffe, it's really an honor.

This is so damn cool :D The marker looks like water colors, it's so fluid and pretty. I always love what you do with markers :D
Yuujin's avatar
yeah, thank you :hug:
I agree sometimes it doesn't even look like markers ^^;
I guess letraset didn't even knew or thought that their marker can be used like that :giggle:

...but sometimes I meet people who say that I use markers in wrong way... f.e in one marker group-club I can never go upper than novice-intermediate level because this type of usage is not considered anything near "advanced" :D :D :D
well, anyway... it doesn't bother me, cause I got a lot of fans and admirers like you :) who prefer it done in this way. thank you :hug:

Haha yeah, I've also been told I'm intermediate or whatever in certain groups when I use certain techniques that aren't boring anime smooth. It's annoying, but I realized I care more about doing my art than their opinions, hahaha. I love to see people think outside the box with their tools!
