Artwork Description

This picture depicts the Emperor, (who represents the masculine forces in nature). He is usually depicted as an old, white-haired man in Western imperial dress, but I decided to depict him as a Chinese emperor (and because this is an anime-style tarot, I've made him a bishounen. Woo!) He is aligned with the sun card (hence all the sun imagery on his regalia instead of the dragons which would usually adorn the clothing of a real-life Chinese emperor.)

I really ;love the set you did - rich in vibrant colors!

Very nicely done, but the sword hilt seems a bit short even for a one-handed weapon.

He looks kind and guiet.
