Ten of cups!  (Could have been better I think)

Ten of Cups Tarot Card Meanings and Description

On the Ten of Cups we see a loving couple united by the bonds of true, everlasting love. They not only have each other but all that they wish for in life as well, represented by the two children frolicking at their side and the small but comfortable home in the distance, surrounded by trees and water. The family home symbolises stability and homely comforts, while the green garden symbolises fertility and the river symbolises a free flow of feelings. A rainbow of cups is overhead, blessing the scene. The cups symbolise an abundance of heavenly gifts and the rainbow signifies the end of hard times and is also is considered to be a highly spiritual omen in many of the world’s religions. It is a sign that the idyllic scene we see represented has been blessed from above and reinforces the idea that the achievement of perfect love is one sure way of experiencing the glory of the heavens here on earth.

This, like many things, was created for my laptop wallpaper.  Since I wanted something new, and something based off one of my sketches, this is what I came up with.  I love it, and while I can still improve it, I think it looks good on my desktop for now! {For my personal use only!}

Nine of Cups (Tarot)
Upright meanings: Wishes fulfilled, comfort, happiness, satisfaction.  Again, I went with a pretty model as the centrepiece.  Mostly, my interpretation followed the upright meanings.  It also hopes to encapsulate the feeling of 'fulfilment realised after the accomplishment of our deepest desires.'

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

Nine of Cups Tarot Card Meanings and Description

In Nine of Cups, a portly, middle-aged man sits upon a wooden bench with his arms crossed in contentment. He is dressed smartly and wears an expression of true satisfaction on his face and his red head-dress symbolises an active mind. Behind him is a wall with nine golden cups arranged in a structured, well-organised arch. The man enjoys success both materially and spiritually and represents the fulfilment realised after the accomplishment of our deepest desires.

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.

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:


The Fool (Tarot) by N-arteest The Magician (Tarot) by N-arteest High Priestess (Tarot) by N-arteest The Empress (Tarot) by N-arteest The Emperor (Tarot) by N-arteest The Hierophant (Tarot) by N-arteest The Lovers (Tarot) by N-arteest Chariot (Tarot) by N-arteest Strength (Tarot) by N-arteest The Hermit (Tarot) by N-arteest Wheel of Fortune (Tarot) by N-arteest Justice (Tarot) by N-arteest The Hanged Man (Tarot) by N-arteest Death (Tarot) by N-arteest Temperance (Tarot) by N-arteest The Devil (Tarot) by N-arteest The Tower (Tarot) by N-arteest The Star (Tarot) by N-arteest The Moon (Tarot) by N-arteest The Sun (Tarot) by N-arteest Judgement (Tarot) by N-arteest The World (Tarot) by N-arteest

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.
