I started this 3 month ago, and I am becoming tired of it.. so I will call this done.

This is a project for my school. A group of persons and me have to program a game of tarot (a french card game with 14 cards in each color, and 22 trump cards). And when we were looking for cards to use with our program, I thought : why not draw the cards myself?

And so I did.

The logo on the back of the cards is the logo of my school.

I was heavily inspired by Mis-Bug's work for the background of the face cards (but all the castles are different of course)

Here is the full scene for the trump cards : [click] (it is 32 colors)
I tried to use different colors for the 1st and 21th trump cards, so that they are recognizable at first sight.

For this scene, I was inspired by the works of slym, jalonso, TheInquisitor, teto, raynoa and Elk.

And finally, a wip : [click]

Wow I missed this too. I like how the sky fades into a brownish around the dragon.

 Ahhh how did I not see this until now?! This is by far the best work I've seen from you. Love the grass and the cards with the forest background. Nice work man :)

 @Imagician The tarot she is taking about is not the same as the one with pentacles, and swords and cups and all that. The cards have no meaning, they are the same as regular english playing cards but the letter cards have been translated into french (Roi, Dame, Chevalier and Valet I think )

 The 'C' of clubs looks like Ned Kelly

@Imagician : I think you have in mind divinatory tarot cards, but these cards are for a cards game, so they don't really have a particular meaning.

@AirStyle : The V is the Jack (Valet in french)

AirStyle (Level 6 SWAT) @ 5/21/2012 07:32

 I can guess what C,D and R is, but what is V?

Fantastic. I love the idea and implemetation with the panorama scene.

Is there any description to you special tarot cards (to look up what each card means ;) ?

La présentation est bien comme ça. 

Jolie variété pour les personnages et la scène est impressionante en taille!

 Thanks everyone :)

@ptoing : you are totally right! I changed the presentation, I hope it looks better. Well at least now it fits the window :p

Lehmure (Level 3 Chupacabra) @ 5/16/2012 06:21

 Pretty cool. ._.

Its pretty cool, really.


philippejugnet (Level 6 Hitman) @ 5/16/2012 05:26

 very nice Idea man ^^

ptoing (Level 7 Cuttlefish) @ 5/16/2012 04:30

These are nice, but I feel the presentation is a bit lacking for a gallery site.

We do not have to see the normal number cards, one or two of each set would be enough, esp since they do not look very different and are all along the same scheme. Also we do not need to see the back of the deck 4 times.

I would focus on the picture and trump cards and order them in a nice fashion, and just throw in some of the other cards for completeness sake, but you really do not need all 10 of each plus back.

Still, very nice work regardless :)

 Just click on it and it will open it in a new window :)
