41  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Persona 4 Tarot Card Designs on: October 01, 2015 04:47:17 PM
I'm learning how to draw and I want to make a Tarot deck with all the characters from the video game Persona 4.  I decided to start with Teddie and the fox since I'm not very good at people yet.  I would like some feedback on my drawing and any tips you can offer.  I'm taking a drawing class in November, so I'm hoping I'll be able to start on the people cards by then.  These are not the finished designs, I just wanted to try a design before making the final product.



Again, C&C is welcome!

That's so cute.  You did a great job!

I wanted a pretty pouch to put my Tarot cards in, and when my coworker saw it she wanted one for herself.  Then I got a second deck of cards, so I needed to make one for that... and I ended up with 4 of my own bags.  They're really quick to make and I found some fun yarn in my stash.

Here's the one I made for my coworker


Here's a pretty pink one I made.  I have my Nicoletta Ceccoli deck in it.




A Halloween one I have my Rider-Waite deck in right now.




A pretty silver one




And I tried another type of closure with a Jade bead instead of a button.




These are so much fun to make!  I'd like to make more for gifts for my friends.

Thanks everyone!  Skelita is really hard to find where I live.  I've only found one and technically she's my bf's doll (he thought she was cool) so I just went with a white body.  I thought maybe a Draculara would make a cute day of the dead doll, too.

Thank you!  My boss loved it and now my other boss wants one for each of her daughters.  LOL what did I get myself into?

One of my bosses collects day of the dead stuff and the other day she told me she'd like a doll because she adds something new every year.  I had a skeleton head laying around from a Create-a-Monster set, and I had to use a Spectra (the ghost) body because she's the only white body other than Katrine (the cat), which is hard to find.  That is why this doll's hands and feet are clear; because she's a ghost character.

Anyway, I haven't had good luck doing my own face-ups because I have trouble with eyes so I added to the factory face (spider web, swirls, heart, dots, mouth).  I painted a small rib design on her neck/chest as well.  I had a wig laying around from a create-a-monster set and I added a veil and some flowers to it.  I made the dress and shawl as well.







I hope this is what she had in mind.  I had a lot of fun making her and I may do another for myself!

Thanks! Yeah, I couldn't really ugly her up so I stuck with the "daughter of a monster" theme. Hagravens are witches that go through a ritual to become part woman, part bird and they have some cool spells that they use.

Forever ago I found a Create-a-Monster add-on set for a harpy.  Being the huge geek I am, I though she would make a cool Hagraven (from the video game Skyrim.  See here: http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Hagraven_%28Skyrim%29).  The problem with the add-on sets is that they're missing a torso and the upper part of the limbs.  This makes color matching difficult.  I was trying to decide if I wanted to paint a whole doll and add on the parts or if I should just mash-up 2 similar colors.  I ended up doing the latter, so that's why the coloring is a bit off.

Normally I wipe the factory paint and make a whole new face.  I was feeling lazy so I just decided to enhance the factory paint job by adding some shading around the eyes, giving her some cheek definition, and making the lips a bit darker.  I blushed the wings and legs to make them less bright and more defined.  I also painted her little finger and toe nails black.  I made the shirt and added feathers to it, and added feathers to a skirt I already had.  I also made her wig out of costume fur.

On to the pics!  It started getting windy outside so I had to finish the shoot inside.













She's my third video game inspired doll I've customized.  I had a lot of fun with her!
