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.

Been working on Tarot Cards again lately. Trying to decide which is better between these two for my Magician card. Let me know what you like and don’t.

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

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.

Queen of Coins

One photoshoot for the week down, only three to go. Unfortunately, this was the simplest one. A tarot card that I knew exactly what I wanted for, and although I’d never worked with Cindy before she was a total pro.

I can’t believe I have less than 20 tarot cards left. Well sort of anyway. There’s a few that I’ve since decided I’m not happy with and may want to redo. An artist is never satisfied.

Well, maybe he is. Because I like this one quite a lot.
