{Disney Tarot} 'La Pretresse: Kidagakash' by suisei-ojii-sama
{Disney Tarot} 'La Pretresse: Kidagakash'
Princess Kidagakash as The High Priestess.

I went back and forth a bit as to who could represent the High Priestess in this deck but after reflecting that the card dealt with "otherworldliness" and "mystical vision", Kida seemed like a no brainer. Also, her connections to Atlantis and the history of her people make her an ideal candidate for this. I think this was the first card that the restricted color palette started to get a little difficult since it is so dark but I am glad with the way it turned out. I just keep getting more excited as I churn more and more of these out!

Second one of these, and now with prettier watermark!

I wanted to make sure that I represented many of the Disney heroines that resembled traits in the cards, and not just the standard princesses. Eilonwy was chosen because she was the first princess I could remember that used magic in her own right, making her a perfect stand in for the traditional "Magician" card of the Tarot. I also want to make sure that I incorporate elements from the original card into the pieces. The infinity symbol is important to the traditional "Magician" card. Instead of the Magician's wand I gave Eilonwy her magic ball because that was how she practiced her magic. Across the deck, I'm hoping to keep a similar grouping of colors and a unified palette so hopefully it works. 

Enjoy!

{Disney Tarot} 'La Chercheur: Snow White' by suisei-ojii-sama
{Disney Tarot} 'La Chercheur: Snow White'
Yay, finally!

I've been wanting to do a Disney Princess inspired Tarot set for a while, so I'm glad that i have a start on them. 

First in the set in the traditional Tarot is "The Fool", which I've read symbolizes the beginning of a journey and also the trait of openness. I feel that Snow White has a very definite journey narrative for the heroine. Also, her trusting nature may get her into some trouble but she still approaches the world with an open heart and spirit. I don't consider her a fool, so that is why I've changed the name to "La Chercheur" or "The Seeker". 

(Not a native French speaker, so feel free to correct me!)

I love your Disney Princess Poster! Do you think you'll make a Disney Princess "villains" poster in the future? I'd love to see that in your style. ^_^
