King of Pentacles by puimun King of Pentacles by puimun
Tarot. To see the rest of the cards, and for more information about the deck: [link]

The King of Pentacles bears a seed in his hand. It gleams golden with an inner light, and it pulses as if it contains a heartbeat that speaks with a humble promise to sprout. The leaves strain forth to bask in that radiance. The branches offer ripe honeyed fruits, each luscious globe swelling with tantalizing sweet juices.

This king is an enterprising individual, a man possessing of multifarious talents. He has the golden touch of Midas, gilding everything around him with a sumptuous gleam. When he lays his hands upon a venture, it is bound for success. When he sets his mind to an idea, it becomes polished brilliance. He is reliable, and adept at what he does. He is steady and a solid support should you need someone to lean on. The eternal strength and stability of the trees and roots are his to draw from, and he stretches branches, and arms, and aspirations to the stars.

He is generous, and shares his wealth. Partake of the fruit he offers. He knows that wealth will be shared, and from those fruits, new seeds will sprout and grow to be mighty trees.

All of your art is so beautiful, I hope that one day I can paint as well as you can, watercolor makes me cry though so I may just stick with acrylic haha.
I've wanted to make my own tarot deck for the longest time and yours is soo amazing I simply love it.

For some reason I find that funny
"alright, another beautiful peice of art almost done, save one final thing"
-draws Katana-
"EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE"
SHWING
-side of the painting falls off-
"damn symmetry"


Likely not your thoughts or methods, but to a larsonesque mind, It might as well be.

I usually watch silently but I have to say: This is going to be such a gorgeous deck. You do wonderful work, there's so much emotion and ... I dunno. Just beautiful, thank you for sharing your artwork with the world. :)

(And yes, I'm on the mailing list and will be purchasing a deck as soon as they're available. :)

How lovely! Your attention to detail is always impeccable. I am particuarly fond of the dragons sitting at the bottom of the tree.

However, if I may give a little critique. The only issue I have with this piece is the transition of bark to skin for the man dryad. I just think it could have gone more smoothly so that he could be more a part of the tree.

But I want to say that your coloring and lighting is beautiful, and this is another wonderful contribution to your tarot.

This is absolutely gorgeous. I can't wait till you finish the deck and it gets printed out so I can buy it. I've never been so impressed with a tarot deck before.
I was so inspired by what I've seen of your's that I've started on making my own.
