A young Knight gundam gazes upon a cup he holds gently but firmly in his hand. Within the cup, there resides a violet rose; a symbol of love. The Knight of Cups often refers to a young man of high intelligence, and a romantic dreamer. Should he appear in a woman's reading, it could mean the Seeker is falling in love with such a man, or, a coming and going of a matter involving the heart.
Stupid scanner cut off the bottom of this, which says "Knight of Cups", and gives this more of a 'Tarot card-ish' appearance.
I'll post a bigger phtoto eventually...
A long while ago, I had an idea to turn all of the Transformers Animated characters into playing cards, but I never did finish that idea. However, recently, I had another idea.
Most of you know (okay, maybe not) that I practice reading Tarot cards. They're my life... and I read out of my Tarot book daily. I had plans to draw Zero, but then, suddenly, it hit me; who more perfect to put on a Tarot card then the Winged Knight, Zero?
So, yesterday, I sketched this, and earlier today, since nobody was online, I finished colouring it with sharpies and watercolours, as usual. Despite the shading, I'm quite happy with the result. c: Not sure about the shading, but I lost my twist-up crayon that I usually use to shade and had to mix black and white paint to shade it. What do you think?
And if anyone doesn't get the passage, allow me to explain; in Tarot, just like a standard playing card deck, we have picture cards; the Pages, Knights, Queens, and Kings. (in that order) The court cards (that's what they're called) represent people; Pages are young boys and girls, Knights are young meen, Queens are women, and Kings are older men. (older Tarot decks don't have Queens, though; the Knight holds her place instead) Also, each Minor Achana (the four groups; Swords, Cups, Pentacles, and Wands; think of them as the Diamonds, hearts, spades, and clubs in a playing deck) represents different aspects of life; Swords= action, Cups= Emotions, Pentacles= Money, and Wands= business. I'll leave you to Google the rest.
So, there is my long and worsy description. Don't hesitate to critique; I reaaaaaaaaaaaally need it. ;_;
Zero belongs to Bandai.
Art is mine.

Done while listening to; "Alluring Secret ~Black Vow~" by Kagamine Rin/Len.
Inspired by; Tarot, and info obtained from Eden Grey's book "Mastering the Tarot". And technically, I am an Atheist, btw. I don't worship any god, but Tarot isn't worship, and has no magic about it. Though, Tarot is considered religious... so I guess you could call me spiritual.
