yo creo que king sombra hubiera quedado mejor en esta carta, pues segun lei el diablo tambien representaria las fuerzas de la degeneracion, cosa que corresponde con los cristales oscuros de sombra, y en la carta del diablo los personajes que aparecen encadenados a los pies de este serian los mismo de la carta de los amantes, mismos que podrian haber sido representados por cadenze y shining armor

shining armor and princess cadence for the lovers totally makes sense.

am i the only one who thinks fluttershy should be "the hermit"

Really waitin to see this get finished. These things look awesome. You only have three cards so far, but I can see lots of potential for this. Only problem is assigning each card a pony; I wrote a Persona- style fic once, and I have to say, making links is tough. Took me three weeks to make a mediocre at best compendium, each having a weak storyline.

I have half the Major Arcana done already though not all up here yet, I have been playing around with the symbolism for a while and think all the ones I have match up perfectly, hope to have them all done for BronyCon.

Good job making Discord look scary before you relize how evil he can be. Did you know the show has a tarot card version of discord already.his stained glass window is a version of a devil tarotcard with him on it!

Wonderful! Brilliant! I like your idea, as well as your art style.

I would like to see other of yours 'My Little Pony' Tarot cards. I would really be looking forward to the Moon (I suggest putting Princess Luna as the main character in that card). So, think about it, please!

Anyway, good job!
Mark-Firehaven Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2012
Good thought, but she should really be the star, and the mare in the moon moon for the moon. Sounds horribly redundant to anyone who has no clue as to what a tarot card is.
majabjekovic Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
That's not a bad idea.

However, the Moon is a a card that can express rather contrary emotions. As they say, "at its darkest, this can be a very scary card warning the querent of hidden enemies, mental illness, alcoholic blackouts or a bad drug trip. At its very best, however, the Moon is a card of genius, of mental breakthroughs, astonishing creativity, powerful magic, and intuition".

So, in my opinion, Nightmare Moon represents the bad point of the card, while Princess Luna represents a good one. Maybe you should put them both in the picture, to suggest the good and the bad part.

There are also other reasons why Princess Luna should be in the Moon card. That's because her name means "Moon", and her cutie mark is also the moon (and not the star!), so she is much more connected to the Moon than to the stars.

But that's just mine opinion.
Mark-Firehaven Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2012
I was talking about the moon prior to her getting out. That's why I said moon twice.
majabjekovic Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh, and just one more thing: every Tarot card has its Zodiac sign.

The Star card has Aquarius as its astrological sign, which is, on the other side, ruled by Uranus, while the Moon card has Cancer as its astrological sign, which is ruled by the Moon itself.

I'm sure that Princess Luna is therefore much more connected to the Moon (Moon), than to the Star (Uranus).

what does request as print mean? i accidently clicked it. O-O
8Kiba9 Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2012
May I suggest Fluttershy for Priestess?^^
MorriganXWarden Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2012
Let me guess who represents The Moon, and The Sun.
Luna and Celestia?
alexwarlorn Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2012
Manipulation? Temptation? Self destruction? Yeah. Fits.
Chaadaev Featured By Owner May 28, 2012
Ok, but traditionally for this card there should be a two lovers, chained to the Devil's throne, Lira and Bon-bon for example :3

This is so awesome! I, too, find tarot cards fascinating and love looking at the different artwork for each. Now I can look forward to a MLP version too!

I can't emphasize enough how amazing this is!
SouthParkTaoist Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thank you :)

I just love how eerie Discord looks. It's as if you do and don't recognize him at the same time!
PrincessWordplay Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2012
OMG I LOVE YOU! Thank you so much for working on these!
141Ghost Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2012

High Priestess - Zecora
The Chariot- Twilight's Balloon

MiloCavendish Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
I am quite interested in what you will do for The Hanged Man.
Logoleptic Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2012
This seems to line up nicely with the traditional Hanged Man card to me: [link]
ZephyrAria Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2012
Awesome work so far. I'd buy a deck if it existed
james539 Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2012

CG-Sphinx Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2012
Oooooooh you can't believe how much fun I am having trying to link characters to the remaining cards, this is so aweshum!
Arbiter-Tom Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2012
Badass! Are you gonna make the rest too? And a full deck to go with it? And then sell it and make millions of dollars and take over the world?! If so, I'd love to help.
KarrinBlue Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2011
Welp, I think we ALL know who the Sun and Moon are gonna be....Pinkie and Rarity!
richfiles Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
And now we have a candidate for "The Hanged Man", who will be hangin' out on the MOOOOOOOOONNNNNNN
Valkiraun Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Should have made a 23rd: The chaos, or something like that :P
timfortune9 Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2011
Highly awesome. Although I think the window that featured him dangling ponies over a pit of flames would have been a better fit for the background. But whatever. This is badass anyway.
TheHandsomeRockLee Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2011

This reminds me of the Binding of Isaac.
Very pretty, I can't wait to see Death.
thps48 Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2011
Satan's number's 15? Heh, arcane arts are funny.
RolePlayGriffon Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2011

Also, number 6 must be Lyra & Bon-Bon
SouthParkTaoist Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
