Four of Swords

Four of Swords

It’s been a while since I did a new Tarot card again, so it was nice to get this one shot. This is Megan, a new model for me, and I thought she had just the right punky look for my only remaining female sword card (unless I do some reshoots, which I might). She was also adventurous and totally willing to jump in my swimming pool in clothes and swing around a sword that’s almost as big as her. This came out just how I envisioned it, and I really love the motion of it.

New tarot card! And the first one I’ve done with a guy in quite a while. I can’t believe this is the 79th I’ve done. If it weren’t for me redoing some I’d be done.

No worries. I’m happy with what I have.

This one features JP Crawford (MM#1498468), a model from DC who drove up just to be a part of the projet.

Ten of Staffs

Ten of Staffs

It’s been a while since I posted new Tarot Cards. I’ve just been too busy to work on them. But I did shoot some new ones the other day with. As always, the aces and tens have the same person on them (an exception to the rule of not using the same person for two cards) in the same pose.

This is Weisbrg32(MM#1546055) who had the perfect abercrombie look for the staff cards.

I’ve recently had some thoughts on restructuring the tarot deck. As such I reused two of my old photos for different cards. Of course now by doing so I’ve ended up junking some cards that were already done in order to meet my new designs.

Sigh…

I’m never going to finish this damn thing.

Four of Cups – yi 1

Ok, brand new tarot cards. Well, replacement ones.

The rough thing about the Tarot Project is that since it’s taking me so long, I tend to change my mind about ideas from time to time, which in turn means it takes me even longer since I have to redo certain cards.

I’ve grown unhappy with my theme for the fours (blind) and so I’ve decided to redo all of them. I realized I didn’t have water represented, so that’s what they’re going to be now.

So I shot with Yi the other day for some zivity photos and for the tarot set and I came up with two possibiliites I kind of like for the new four of cups. So I need to know from all of you. Which one is better?

It’s been a really long time since I posted a tarot card. The biggest problem is that I got to a point where I needed specific people in order to finish things off. I finally got one done today though with Viki. I needed the perfect "California Blonde" look for the sun card, and I think she pulled it off well.

Would love comments on this or any of the other Maverick Tarot cards.

Two of Coins

Two of Coins

The problem with taking years to complete a project like my Tarot Deck is that as time goes on I realize how unhappy I am with some of the earlier shots. This means I have to redo them, which means that the project takes even longer to complete.

The old Two of Coins has been on my list to reshoot for a long time, but it wasn’t actually my intention to use Lizz for the reshoot. In fact I had her pegged for the four of staffs, which wasn’t done yet at all. But after we shot that, she ended up liking one of the dresses in my model closet a lot (I have a wardrobe full of outfits for shoots) and once she tried it on, I decided she a great look for this card. Once I had edited it, I really felt like this was totally the way to go. I’m glad I did. Of course now I have to shoot the four of staffs yet again, but I’m pretty sure its worth it.

Usually I only post four or five photos from a shoot at a time, but I’m still running way behind, so I spent the evening editing my entire shoot with Jonny.

It’s rare that I find male models on Model Mayhem, and it’s even rarer that one contacts me. But Jonny did and volunteered for the Tarot deck. Which was perfect because he had exactly the right look for my redo of the Tower Card. He was looking for some TFCD work in my style and in particular liked some of my motifs I use a lot (martial arts weapons and the comic posterization for the tarot deck). So it all worked out pretty good.

After doing no Tarot cards for months, I got three done this week. All with new models. Kinda weird the way they go in bursts like that.

This one is Miaa and Xero. They were supposed to do a longer shoot, but Miaa wasn’t feeling well. Yet they still showed up to make sure they got the tarot card done. For that I am very thankful. Definitely have to get them back to do a longer shoot soon.

This one is staring Marybeth, who I did a big shoot with on back on Thursday. A lot more shots of her to come, but I’m actually four shoots of editing behind right now, so it may take me a while to catch up.

Newt posed for my tarot deck. Actually we had a good photoshoot and we got a lot of photos done, but I was most excited about this, not only because I hadn’t done a tarot card in a long time, but because this was a card idea I had a long time ago.

Hopefully I’ll have more pics of her done soon.

XVII-Star

XVII-Star

When I met Andi online over a year ago and saw her tattoos, I immediately knew that one day she would be my Star card for my tarot deck. It took me a year to get around to driving across state to shoot her, but i’m so very glad I saved the card for her.
