We discuss it and take turns as we're working. I'm currently working on pip card ideas for the Minor Arcana. I think he's got the Queen of Wands and Page of Wands up in his gallery. I'm working on the actual icons for the Houses (Wands, Cups, Swords, Coins) and we're both loving this project! I'm so glad you like it too! :love:

maybe after you two have the tarot completed... you will do runes...as cards with images being the meanings & The God/Goddess associations

I like Runes very much, I may consider doing an Oracle-style deck or possibly a variant on the traditional Tarot using them and their meanings =) either way, I will be sure to keep you posted :heart: Thank you for the encouragement and inspiration, it is deeply appreciated :hug:

Thank you so, so much! I created the initial poses and Darwin fine-tuned them when he did the render, most notably their hands. I agree, he did an amazing job =D I will pass on your compliments to him, he will be thrilled :heart:

Aw, thank you so kindly for this lovely, flattering comment, Danny! :heart: My apologies for taking some time to respond. And thank you so very much for the favorite as well :hug: I truly appreciate it! I'm sure Darwin will be thrilled to read this, too =D He's the one rendering the artwork in Poser 2012 and we're both doing postwork/post-processing on the images. Your opinions are most welcome and also quite helpful, so I'll thank you from both of us for that :nod:

In all honesty, it's an intriguing and almost mind blowing project. I'm "only" a Daz user, but quite happy with that (too much I have not figured out in that LOL).  Between my new gaming obsession *hangs head* and everyday life, I want to finally tackle a project myself, but it's not near as consuming or extensive as the Tarot -- which is good cause I have the attention span of a 4 year old -- you and Darwin have all my admiration and enthusiasm for it. I need to find the time to troll all from the series, and I don't want to just have a short look on them, I want to enjoy them and study them. The posing and overall design of those I have seen so far is awesome! :D

Thank you for the kind compliments!   As for being "only" a Daz user, there is nothing wrong with that.  I, myself, had been only a Daz user for many years until I was lucky enough to snag Poser...

I have many projects on my plate at the moment, but this one by far is the largest and one of the most satisfying ones I've been honored to take part of.

Thank you again!

You're very welcome, it's well deserved.

Well, a lot of Poser users look down at us Daz users, I have though no intentions of switching anytime soon, I achieve what I want very well with Daz even though I have Poser as well, haven't even looked into it.

I've always loathed how some do look down on others, and it's not just Poser/Daz, but the rest of the 3D community against Poser/Daz users- the general consensus being that the models are most often (and they are correct in some ways) used for 3D porn rather than art...  That and if we can't MAKE a model of a human being, we technically aren't 3D artists...just renderers.  

I had Studio for years before I had Poser, and I still use both but gravitate more for the Poser side than Studio anymore.  That and Carrara.  

Thank you very much!

Amazing posing and fantastic lighting Jude! This is just all around gorgeous. I love the card frame and the text, too. They certainly are very 'complimentary' to one another - i.e. opposites but their unity is well shown here.

First: I like the frame in which the subject of the Tarot deck is presented. It is so wonderfully dark and gothic. :love: And I admire the lovers. They are so opposite as two persons can be, like day and night, warm and cold, soft and hard...but they are the missing link to each other and needed the other person to be whole. Wonderful! :dance:

This is a most difficult pose, arms behind the back fingers entwined. I am hypnotized by natural androgyne and blurring in general. Further, the figure and hand grasp echo the colab process itself you should be proud.

You're so welcome. Nice when work is being received well. Art is very often a solitary existence...it can hang on a gallery wall and money is pretty much the feedback. Not very personal. Tried to favorite some other pieces but service has been glitchy on the tablet. I'll try again later when using the computer.
