Just in case [04 Aug 2005|06:27pm]

You all have probably come up with way better ideas for the major arcana, but I thought I'd toss my own in just in case...Collapse )

Minor arcana suits [03 Aug 2005|01:19pm]

As I said in my comment on the major arcana, I'm interested in Tarot but not a fanartist - so feel free to kick me out if you don't want mere observers to comment.

Anyhow, I've had some thoughts on allocating the suits, which I thought I'd share here in the hope that they might provide useful seeds for discussion.Read more...Collapse )

Here are my suggestions for the majors...

I am putting them behind a cut for those of you who haven't read Half-Blood Prince yet. Know that these choices might change when the seventh book comes out. Criticism is welcome.

For a nice inital discussion... [02 Aug 2005|09:52am]

Though we're probably way ahead of the game, what are some suggestions for the major arcana? I figure we can take suggestions and then run a poll. If you feel like explaining your choice, go right ahead. :D

Introductory post! [01 Aug 2005|08:09pm]

While browsing decks of tarot cards, I got the idea in my head to make my own. I started going through mythologies and themes that would be relevant to me, and inevitably I stopped at Harry Potter. Unfortunately, my own artistic skills are limited, but another thought stopped me:

Wouldn't it be great to get all those fantastic fanartists together and design and create a deck with both symbolism we all relate to easily and a variety of styles represented?

And thus, here we are.

There are many preliminary decisions to be made, from design (do we want all the cards to have a similar border, to give the range of styles a cohesive feel, or are they better left up to individual styles? What size deck would be best?) to symbolism (Who's the best character to represent the Hermit? Wands may be a given, but what of the other three suits? Should each suit have an appropriate house-elemental affiliation?). So come on in and drop ideas for now! I think this could end up being a very entertaining and satisfying project.
