La_Morte by janemini La_Morte by janemini
~ImagineFX is holding a Bi-Weekly Tarot Card Challenge to depict a tarot card from the Major Arcana. And their recent challenge theme is Death.


Death (XIII)
- is the thirteenth trump or Major Arcana card in most traditional Tarot decks.

-commonly depicts a skeleton riding a horse. Surrounding it are dead and dying people from all classes, including kings, bishops and commoners. The skeleton carries a black standard emblazoned with a white flower. Some decks depict the Crashing Towers from The Moon with The Sun rising behind them in the background. Some decks, such as the Tarot of Marseilles, omit the name from the card.

Here's my visual interpretation of a Death card.

It has been a great challenge and I had a lot of fun even though my finished piece has been damaged due to power failure. And I have to start again using only the lowres image I have. :D But that incident taught me a lesson. I have heard this before and I thought I already knew this. I guess I have to be reminded... "Don't fall in love with your paintings!". Knowing this, you can find strength to let go and move on. That's all, I hope you'll like it as much as I do!:D

All thanks to my mentor/team lead/big brother :iconjbcasacop: for the critiques and suggestion! :D

And as always... comments and critiques are welcome! . And English is not my first language so if you see something wrong with my grammar please let me know. Thanks in advance!

Good thing you changed your idea from the 3 WIPs!
This has more impact than the former ones.
Osm touch on the armor-- and I like the crooked teeth of the horse! XDDD

Goodluck in the challenge! =)
