Turtle Tarot: Rough sketches by Turtle-Arts Turtle Tarot: Rough sketches by Turtle-Arts
Since it's going to be a while before this whole project actually gets finished, I decided to share the roughs with you guys (now that they're all sketched out).

I've always wanted to make my own personalized set of tarot cards, and the other day I finally got some motivation to do it. (probably because I've been playing Persona3 and it reminded me of how much I'd been wanting to do this project. XD) Though I'm only doing the major arcana cards, because there's no way I'm doing a full deck. >_< The deck consists of portraits of 23 of my OCs for the card faces. (Which, p.s. that's a lot of characters. >_<) Each card's character was chosen based on which of my OCs personalities or appearances best suited the meanings of the arcana. And surprisingly, it was really easy to match the characters to the cards because each arcana seemed to perfectly suit one particular character... which was nice. XD The only ones that don't exactly match up are Turtle and E.T. for the emperor and empress. I just used them for those two because they're my "flagship" characters. XD

As for the rest, there's technically only one character on here that I've never drawn for you guys, so the rest are ones you've seen before. Though a few of them might be hard to recognize because they're ones I don't draw very often. But anyways, enjoy the sketches for now! And I'll upload the cards individually as I do them. Though it's probably going to be a slow moving project since I'm starting school again in a week. :I

This will be moved to scraps later as well.

Yeah, I really wanna finish this set. I worked on it a bit the other day actually, but it's been hard to find time for it. I forget about it a lot of times. XD
