    Making My Own Tarot Deck

    I feel like that I wanted to make my own tarot deck. I wanted to make a dark elves tarot deck featuring dark elves.

    Thank you. I'm going to draw picture of the dark elves. Not those traditional pips form the Marsellies deck. No way.

    Take your time and when you are pleased with the results I would like to buy a deck. I think my wife would love a deck like that.

    Its not about finding the "right path" but more so finding the path that's right for you

    From experience-be warned, it is a royal pain and extremely soul draining.

    Re: Making My Own Tarot Deck

    I've been playing with the idea of painting my own deck as well since I'm so picky about the art quality and symbolism of the cards. What has stopped me is the very pressing reality of the project consisting of 78 different paintings o_o Like Yorin said: "soul draining."

    If you think you can pull it off I say go for it. It would be really cool to see a deck like that since dark elves are bad ass

    When I get a studio, I want to do a photography project of at the very least the major arcana.

    Dark elves tarot would be a pretty interesting deck. =)

    Re: Making My Own Tarot Deck

    I've always wanted to give making my own deck a try as well, but yeah, that's a lot of cards to create!

    I had an art project in high school to just re-envision four cards from a normal playing card deck... just doing those four was a big enough project for me!

    I'd be interested to see what you come up with! It sounds neat

    Anyway. My drawing is kind of average. So I knew to work on my artwork a bit.

    Re: Making My Own Tarot Deck

    Great news. Starting next month I'm going to draw The Drow Tarot Deck. I'm still at the early planning stage. In this deck it's going to be 80 instead of the 78 traiditional cards. The two extra cards is the Magician of Light and the Magician of Darkness. The court cards will have their own title, Wands-Fighters, Cups-Clerics, Swords-Rogues and Pentacles-Wizards. First I'm going to draw the Major Arcana which include the two extra cards. Then I going to draw the Minor Arcana which is based on the Rider-Waite Smith tradition. This will be the best tarot deck that's known to man or at least drow.
