“I tried to draw the second tarot card, High priestess, which means knowledge, wisdom and understanding. I wanted it to be very different from other illustrations of this card and draw it in my own way. That’s why I decided to draw it only in graphite pencil and make it as realistic as I could.”
“Looking at your tarot card, I really like the magical feel that you have going on. I think that a lot of that is with the gesture of the figure and the hand, and the way that you’ve played with the hair; so lifelike and there’s a lot of movement there that I really appreciate.
One thing that I would ask you to consider is composition. At the moment the center of the card is the figure’s eyes, which are important, but I feel like we’re missing a little bit of something with her holding the apple.
Another thing, that I would suggest is to play with darkest darks. Right now in the shoulder of the figure you have almost a full black, but overall it’s just kind of a light grey in the whole piece. And I think that, if you were to play around with getting some really really dark darks, and play around with really light lights and, play around with the contrast between the two, you could have some fun. Great piece overall!”
