About two days ago, I decided I felt like playing cards, but couldn't find any at the store. So I started on making my own, which took a while because I am lazy and put off things, and I only had four markers to use (black, red, green, and a crappy blue) but I finally finished today. Observe!

Clubs:






Diamonds:






Spades:







Hearts:







The clothes of the jacks-queens-kings are very vaguely modeled off of some that I saw in a tarot deck example on Wikipedia. I have to admit, sometimes the drawing and colouring was fairly half-hearted, but they're just for me and my boyfriend, mostly, and they worked well enough when we used them. Smiley

Wow!
Great job, and amazing patience!
I love the tarot-inspired art on the court cards.

Get those cards to a laminating machine... quick!  I look at those and the first thing that comes to mind is that you could make friends and family very personalized decks of cards for gifts.  You know, like the face cards could be in baseball uniforms for a fella that's crazy about the sport, your crafty friend may need a set where the symbols ( pictures that count out the number?) would be little balls of yarn.... think about it !  I wish I had art skills!

Cool! I love the way you say the drawing & colouring was half hearted, but they look really good, and you did make 52 of them!
