The first card in my tarot set design. This is still a work in progress, I intend to color/paint them all when I'm finished, but I'm sketching them all out first to align the compositions, proportions and aesthetic.
For the fool, I let myself be inspired by the jester/joker cards, instead of turning him into a hobo. The first draft had him look more like Diogenes the philosopher, but then I realised that made him too similar to the Hermit card.
So instead I went for the Venetian Jester design. Since this set is ment as a personal portfolio, it made sense, because my great-grandfather used to dress up as a Jester for his friends. (despite being a noble himself).
I also used my Logo instead of the "0", letting myself be inspired by the "Outsider" card in the Dishonored tarot set, which uses their logo on said card.
