Five of Cups (Tarot) by N-arteest
Five of Cups (Tarot)
Pretty straightforward and simple.  Loss and despair.  She only sees the fallen cups, even though there are still cups standing behind her.  In the distance is her home, just beyond the torrents of water.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Five of Cups Tarot Card Meanings and Description

The Five of Cups is a card that signifies difficulty, loss, and the challenges of dealing with that loss. The figure in the card wears a black cloak in which he hides his face in apparent despair. At his feet are five cups, three of which have fallen and spilled onto the ground and the other two behind his back remain standing. He does not seem to notice these upstanding cups because he is so focused on the fallen cups instead. Ahead of him a powerful river flows between himself and a castle or home in the distance. To his right is a bridge that can lead him to the security of the house across the river. Despite the fact that this card has a strong indication of loss and tribulation, there is a positive aspect that must be considered. Is your cup half full or half empty?

Four of Cups (Tarot) by N-arteest
Four of Cups (Tarot)
This is another simple card.  I guess I really like the stock I got for the cloud holding the fourth cup, really handy ^^

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Four of Cups Tarot Card Meanings and Description

The Four of Cups depicts a young man sitting under a tree far away from others in what looks like deep contemplation and meditation. In fact, he is so engrossed in deep contemplation that he does not appear to notice the cup being presented to him by an outstretched arm. A further three cups stand at his feet, symbolising the world and its attractions but again, he pays little attention to these. In this sense, he indicates the need to look deep into our Self to discover the answers we seek. External influences can be distracting and may not lead us to the goal we seek even if those influences purport to be of a spiritual nature.

This young man and his predicament suggest the story of the Buddha under the Bodhi Tree, contemplating the state of the Universe and unwilling to rise until he has reached the Truth. He is not taking the cup and indeed appears to be paying no attention to it whatsoever. He misses this gift of love and opportunity because he’s completely tuned within.

Three of Cups (Tarot) by N-arteest
Three of Cups (Tarot)
Like the Two of Cups, I had a hard time finding stock where models would seem like they were naturally looking at each other.  In this card  I really wanted to hone in on the theme 'celebration'.  Nothing says celebration more than three girls toasting.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Three of Cups Tarot Card Meanings and Description

The Three of Cups is a card of celebration and accomplishment. Three young maidens dance in a circle with their golden goblets upraised in a toast of joy. Their arms reach out to each other and they connect through their emotions and their friendship with one another. The ground is covered with fruit and there is a general sense of abundance and happiness. Each woman in the Three of Cups has a wreath of laurel on her head. Wreaths of this type have long been a symbol of victory and success. A sweet smelling laurel wreath is also a symbol of protection, peace and purification and is a message that the favour of the Universe is upon us, and that we shall be the victor in this stage of our lives. At the women’s feet lie various flowers, symbolising joy, beauty, compassion and growth. The flowers remind us of the good times in life, the sweet smell of success, and the beauty that surrounds us if only we open up to its presence.

Two of Cups (Tarot) by N-arteest
Two of Cups (Tarot)
This was a hard one to do since many couple stocks didn't have the pose I wanted, and when I found suitable models, whether or not they looked convincingly at each other problem altogether.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Two of Cups Tarot Card Meanings and Description

The Two of Cups depicts a man and a woman exchanging cups in what appears to be a wedding ceremony with the caduceus of Hermes between them. The two-snake caduceus design has ancient and consistent associations with trade, negotiation, balance, duality (union of opposites), proper moral conduct, protection and cosmic energy. On the Two of Cups, the caduceus sends a positive message for new partnerships, and suggests that with honour, respect and balance, new relationships shall be rewarding. At the top of the caduceus is a lion’s head, a symbol of passion and fire energy suggesting that there may be a lot of sexual attraction between the people, although that may or may not be allowed to express itself. The two snakes that wind up the caduceus represent dark and light and their coexistence within us.

It's official, as with just the other day I put up the last card of my Major Arcana! I was so excited to finally put it, and asides from the last minute freakout--I won't lie, you see I originally had a different model as the female in one of the glowing orbs in the Wheel of Fortune, but then when I went back through my favourites, I couldn't find her! So I had to make a last minute change. But alls well that ends well, it came together beautiful.

Here they are below in order:

Art for me is something I only do in my free time. I admire the works that people create, the meanings behind the works created, and the effort artists put into creating them. I usually prefer using a fineliner only to create many interesting effects but I also highly enjoy working in photoshop designing and experimenting with layers upon layers to create different effects.
