Eight of Hearts by KateKaz Eight of Hearts by KateKaz
How awesome would a Silmarillion-themed card deck be?

Anyone?

This card features Nessa, Vala of dance, and Vana, Vala of spring, because the eight of hearts represents leaving the familiar--taking a chance--summoning your courage to follow your dreams.

The assignment was to create four cards, each representing either sex, drugs, or rock and roll. So this is my 'roll' card and to me, the 'roll' part of rock and roll represents dancing--hence these lovely ladies jiving it up.



Sketched on paper and then inked and colored in PhotoshopCS4 with the help of some textures from cgtextures.com, spring 2010



The Silmarillion and its characters belong to the Tolkien estate

Playing cards are really tarot cards without the major arcana and the info I found can be found here [link]!

Thanks! I'm trying to get better at working with textures... and I'd like to think I'm doing pretty good. Your comment helps :)
