Eight of Cups (Tarot) by N-arteest
Eight of Cups (Tarot)
The Upright and Reversed meanings of this card are:

Upright: Escapism, disappointment, abandonment, withdrawal

Reversed: Hopelessness, aimless drifting, walking away

So here, the themes I wanted to highlight are the thoughts of abandonment, escapism, and in the reverse, hopelessness.  So I chose a watery landscape with a figure in the water.  She's walking further in, walking away from, supposedly the beach.  She's escaping.  Walking away.  Turning her back on her dreams, which in this case, is perhaps her passion for art (The sketchbook).

Eight of Cups Tarot Card Meanings and Description

The Eight of Cups is a card of change and transition. The card evokes an immediate reaction of sadness and a sense of solitude. The young man in this card has turned his back on all he has accumulated or accomplished before. He disappears by night into a barren and difficult terrain with only a cloak on his back and a staff in hand. The character in the Eight of Cups has lived and experienced life’s joys and sorrows. His journey is undertaken because of a sense of restlessness and unhappiness experienced as the result of achieving all he has desired, yet finding those things to be less fulfilling than expected. This individual has chosen to forsake the familiar and the comfortable in the pursuit of higher goals. He is embarking upon the spiritual journey because he has not found deep satisfaction in the things of the world, the things with which he is familiar.

Seven of Cups (Tarot)
Which should you choose?

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

Seven of Cups Tarot Card Meanings and Description

The Seven of Cups depicts an individual faced with the mysterious appearance of strange images from cups in a floating cloud. Clouds conjure ideas, dreams, thoughts, illusions, transitions and mystery. Though the character’s back is toward us, we can see from the half-raised arm-gesture that the apparitions before him are something of a surprise. The various prizes appearing from the cups are a mixture of positive and negative visions. These cups each have a single item rising from them – a snake, representing wisdom and knowledge; a shrouded figure, representing the need for illumination; a human head, representing a companion for the conjurer; a tower, representing stability and power; treasure, representing abundance and wealth; a laurel wreath, representing victory or honour, and status; and a dragon, representing supernatural forces. The character faced with these spectres is taken aback by their confusing nature. Although the seven cups appear as gifts or prizes, there is always danger hidden within one or two of them to sting anyone who ventures near. What this suggests is that sometimes you have to choose between many options, all of which may be tempting but only one of which is the best choice. At others times not all of those choices are real options at all; they are delusions of the imagination.

Six of Cups (Tarot) by N-arteest
Six of Cups (Tarot)
A couple of themes that come with the 'six of cups' card are: reunion, nostalgia, childhood memories, and innocence.   I used stock of sisters for the kinship, and the fantasy background to represent a secret place, something of imagination where children might go to hide and play games, to dream of things to come, and also to play out the stories they can't in reality.  

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

Six of Cups Tarot Card Meanings and Description

On the Six of Cups, there are six cups filled with white, five-pointed flowers. A young boy seems to smell one flower, offering this filled cup to another young child. The small child symbolises the past and the taller child symbolises the future, and together they symbolise happy reunions with past friends or lovers. They share old pleasures with lots of nostalgia. In the background, there is an older figure walking away, symbolising our worries leaving us to be locked in the turret. The house symbolises comfort and security but the barren garden symbolises the lost happier times of the past. Everything is bright yellow which indicates great happiness in this overall scene.

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.

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.
