Jamie Narwhal and Beatrice. [: My two female characters. Jamie's the one on the left, Beatrice on the right. I was reluctant to color with copics because my new sketchbook paper is sooo thin--that's why it's in colored pencils. Anywho. Enjoy. ;D

The publishing house Urania, specialized on a wide variation of card games, published a manga tarot. I got the request to illustrate this deck.

I had to draw all of 78 cards. What a huge amount of work! Mercifully, my ideas didn't run out.^^
By the way, the titles are originally printed in English. The translations are on the left side of the card.

The cards should look like vintage prints. Thus the colour parts are even and partially decorated with patterns. In order to avoid too bright, colorful and mawkish cards, I decided to use only four slightly discreet colours (winered, bottle-green, pale yellow and dark grey-blue) and mixed them and added some pattern.
For the outlines I used a very soft and small pen nib and drew them intensely so that they become more thick. The variation of the thickness of the lines let the drawings look lively and the figures stick out.
I took the style of Kaori Yuki and the ancient eras as examples.

I decided to design the border in Art Deco style. I considered to do it in a baroque or victorian style before, but it would have looked too antiquated, so I let it be. Art Deco was arising about 1910/1920, thus it is characterised by an expressionistic and dynamic form. This style combines the classic, ancient decorations with the modernity.

This artwork was created with the rotogravure technique. Therefore I had to evenly spread out black, wax-like paste on a polished copperplate. Then I scratched away the black paste with a really thin, fine needle. Thereafter the copperplate was etched in a acid bath. The waxed parts keep spared, the scratched parts becomes grooves. Then I washed away the paste and filled the grooves with black print colour paste. Now, the copperplate was ready for printing with a special machine. The heavy drum pressed down the copperplate into an absorbent, humid paper sheet, which soaked up the black colour. And here you see the result.^^

"Belus" from Sang-Sun Park's The Tarot Café.

I drew this about 8 months ago. I took the photo when the picture was taped on my door, right after I'd finished it. Nowadays it's framed, but I don't have a photo of it like that (yet, anyway).

I've been very unactive here! I'll try to draw more in a future... ;)

I've been commenting quite a lot lately, but I haven't uploaded for a while, because I didn't have a computer with scanner AND internet available. But now I do! ^_^ The scanner is crappy, but at least it's s?mething ^_^ This is a selfportrait thingy (Though I look older (and prettier? :P) in this pic than I really am) that I drew really quick, but I like the expression on "my" face so I decided to upload it anyway ^_^
