Tarot cards:the high priestess by Tidi-Lebre Tarot cards:the high priestess by Tidi-Lebre
The High Priestess or Papess (La Papess)
The Priestess of the Silver Star


Continuing his journey, the Fool comes upon a beautiful and mysterious veiled lady enthroned between two pillars and illuminated by the moon. She is the opposite of the Magician, quiet where he was loquacious, still where he was in motion, sitting while he stood, shrouded in the night where he was out in the bright of day. She is the High Priestess and she astonishes the Fool by knowing everything about him. "Since you know me so well, perhaps you can help me," says the Fool, laying out his sword, chalice, staff and pentacle. "The Magician showed me these tools, but now I'm in a quandry. There's so many things I could do with them. I can't decide." In answer, the High Priestess hands over to him a pair of ancient scrolls. "These will teach you how to decide." Seating himself at her feet, the Fool reads by the light of her crescent moon. Finally, the Fool knows enough that he can now decide what he wants, where he will go, and what he will do. Though he suspects that the High Priestess has even more secrets she could teach him--like what lies behind the pomegranate curtain--he is focused and ready to be on his way. Thanking the High Priestess, he heads off. But as he leaves he hears her whisper, quiet as the waters which bubble up from beneath her throne, "We'll meet again...when you're ready to travel the most secret path of all."

I wanted to redraw tarrot cards to...the problem is I cannot draw...I tried once the two of swords(very impressing card, take a look at it) but as I said I cannot draw(although grandma was amazed with it and I promised I will give it to her) but I had an Idea to shoot them...that could be interesting...

I LOVE all the effects on this, especially the light effects and the colors! <3 And the metallic look you cave the design on the border of the picture is amazing!

Is that... 'story' (it kinda sounds more like a vision-quest to me or something) from paranormality.com or was that just for the description about the card's meaning?

...do you have the rest of a tarot deck posted somewhere? I'd love to see it if you do! ^w^

Marvellous details. I love the texture using here, really beautiful. You're great at using colour. I love how you coloured it with the same tone.
And it's really creative to represent high priestess in Japanese style :)
