Ten of Swords

Ten of Swords

I love when i meet a model who is absolutely perfect for a Tarot card idea I have. I was talking to my friend Connie (who posed with her son for the Judgement card) and telling her of my idea for the ten and ace of swords cards. I wanted the cutest, most petite, goth girl I could find holding a broad sword bigger than she was. A minute later, Connie found Ambriella on Model Mayhem (where I’ve gotten several models for this project). I wrote her and she was totally into the idea. More pictures to come of her later, but for now, here are the cards I wanted her for. (the ace is here)

    Cool. My first thought was that the card would be better if she were standing, but that would necessitate either the sword being cut off at the edge of the card or her taking up too little of the card’s area.

    That said, any pictures of her standing with the sword?

    @MegaBee: Yeah, I almost chose a standing pose, but this one just fit a little more. Not just for the reasons you said, but I really like the feeling that its "too much sword" for her. There will be a standing with the sword outtake in my Ambriella set when I post it.

    This one turned out really great too. I love the whole look. That sword is perfect and should dwarf her, but she projects enough… attitude? (that’s not quite the word I’m looking for) that it doesn’t.

    Seen in your The Maverick Tarot set. (?)

    @Sick Little Monkey: yeah. I can’t believe she just started modeling. She’s a natural. I’ve been pretty lucky with models for this project really.
