XI - La Forza by juzo-kun XI - La Forza by juzo-kun
My take on one of Tarot's deck Major Arcana: La Forza, a.k.a Strenght. One of the most diffused symbol is a young lady who keeps open a wild beast's mouth without any effort, meaning the superiority of intellect and virtue over brutal istinct. Or somewhat like this.

I put this in Fanart section just to stay on the safe side because of the strong inspirations: the two figures are made after HR Giger (the really obvious one) and Tsutomu Nihei (the slightly less obvious one) ;)

What do you think of this style? :)

Amazing style, I really like the way she looks,
there is something unapproachable about her.

And the Alien fits perfectly for this idea.

Sweeet! What inspired you to create a tarot card? I've been wanting to create a deck.. I just gotta get in the mood to do it and a nice theme! I would so buy your tarot deck if you ever made it! Good job!

I like the card symbolism, the history and psychology related; I was always fascinated from these. I don't know If I'll ever end all the 22 arcana but surely I'll try that.
Symbols are a great source of inspiration: arcana, zodiac, and the like... they have a well established theme and meaning but style and interpretation can be free! Well worth a try ;)

Actually the first thing I thought of was Tsutomu Nihei, I love his style. I like the way you integrated both styles, The flat bright colors you chose make it really expressive and generate a nice contrast. Keep up the good work

Mi piace.
Simpatica anche la presenza del simbolo dell'infinito sulla testa della ragazza.

Bel lavoro.

Ma questo lavoro prefigura l'inizio di una serie? Completerai il mazzo dei tarocchi?

Grazie! :)

L'infinito l'ho aggiunto perché fa parte di una delle raffigurazioni classiche :)

Non so se riesco a fare tutto il mazzo, ho però cominciato qualche altra bozza ispirata agli Arcani Maggiori...

Capisco... chiedevo perché non conosco né le raffigurazioni classiche né tantomeno quelle moderne.

Io mi auguro che tu faccia tutto il mazzo... ma se ti stufi... va bene lo stesso.
A presto

Nella bozza iniziale la bestia era un robo informe, poi c'è venuto fuori l'Alien. E m'è toccato metterlo sotto fanart ^^;
