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.

Haven't much recent art to show so I put this one up. Was too lazy to actually finish it, but wanted some pointers none the less. Some mayor influences from well known animes, find 3 of 'em and win a fridge. (or just comment :P)

The one place my friend won't find his xmas gift on the interwebs. I drew this for my friend Matt because he's always getting me things and drawing me stuff and letting me borrow his mangas and games. XD I owed him a good one. I like how this came out.

whee, here it ish, Koalla su ^^  thanks for letting me color it xD  This is the product of a nifty lineart by Koalla Su, and my severely deep boredom ;^^  Of course, the boredom lead to experimentation, namely with layers, and now we get all pretty-ness, so that worked out well! xD  hehe. *glomps hair*  hope it's okay that I scaled it down.  There was no freaking way my comp would let me save it at it's original size and still keep it under the100kb limit =P
