Hello Journals, it's me, Seth.

I want to get back in the habit of posting more. In that spirit, I want to share a project that may not get past one image, or, if as I hope, it continues to be fun and rewarding for me, may become a full tarot deck.

Some of you may know that Homestuck recently had a kickstarter. Among the reward tiers was a Tarot deck full of some really amazing fan art. Needless to say I am a bit broke and couldn't contribute the requisite 150$. However, I do have lowish-res jpgs of all of the cards, and a search turned up a list of all the artists, many of which have higher-res copies of their cards available.

A side note: I've been wanting to learn how to paint for quite a while, and while I struggled with acrylics basically every other time I've tried them, I've come to the conclusion that if I could just do a whole bunch of little paintings for practice, without having to worry about my own art, I could definitely get pretty good.

Perhaps you see where this is going.

I picked a card at random to start with. Being a Scorpio (and a Gemini, I <3 Sollux... and Mituna, too), I have a soft spot for Vriska, even though she can be a cold-hearted *****.

The 8 of Swords, by Kristin aka Kaymurph

WIP under the cut )

Let me know what you think! I'd love to keep posting my WIPs.

ONCE AGAIN, I am not the original artist, I'm just doing a 'master copy' to learn how to paint (and to possibly one day have my own personalized version of the Homestuck tarot... but that's a ways off...)
