This forum is intended for use by artists of all types of cards as a gallery of your work.

Feel free to present your work any way you'd like. You are encouraged to post images along with any text or links. We are looking for presentations of work from the perspective of the person(s) who made it.

If you are not the artist but would like to present a deck, perhaps the Reviews forum is more appropriate for that.

lol, i don’t quite know! i actually have three wacom tablets and they all still work (i think) but the latest one is the best, it’s blue/gray instead of tan and features a better pen— much more comfortable and responsive. they’re all in storage as i moved recently, so i was doing my drawings on an ipad mini using a finger instead.

unfortunately the mini (such a great size!) got destroyed, and while i still have a first gen ipad, it’s so old that i can’t update the drawing app which now has an option to save files at a much higher resolution. and that’s why i’ve been doing these tarot cards on my phone, haha.

i did seem some huions on their website and would love one of their huge drawing MONITOR. those look really fun!

yeah, one of those big monitor one would be perfect cuz you can use it as a light box to trace. the huion i have is like 13x11 or somewhere around there. it is so easy to find the spot you want you pen to be.

that would be beneficial! i am always using a window as a light table, and of course that doesn’t really work at night. :icon_lol:

here’s one more card, two different ways. this one came out strange but oh well! :icon_rolleyes:

i traced over a tarot figure for the page of wands from a deck image found online i couldn’t identify... it looked like a pretty cool deck tho.

thank you, i am not thrilled about this one, probably because i copied the figure :D

yes, break out that tablet and get to painting! i want to get looser and actually DRAW something... but my art supplies are in storage yet. maybe i'll get a more gestural effect by using the tablet and pen instead of the phone app.

I am not great with the tablet because the painting brushes, watercolor , oil ect. don't look real and throws me off, so i like moving around testing out the brush. Painter can be a bitch to work with it unless you work everyday. I have 13 and 2015 on cd. but now i get them as download. but i usually update them or actually buy new ones off ebay or amazon.

i know what you mean! there’s nothing like the real thing. there’s an old copy of photoshop in my computer, which is extremely cost prohibitive for me these days (you lease it), so i’m grateful for this old version.

however, the new apps on the iphone are actually more fun... digital fingerpainting. :icon_razz:

What i do is go on ebay and buy an earlier version. like i have painter 2017. and corel draw 7ish its a couple years old. but paint shop pro i update at corel directly. I have been using psp since my first ibm computer. and i have every version except for 3.4, it was on a big floppy and I think x7. I now have PSP v. 2018. i usually get a new painter every couple years.

photoshop 9

this is the latest Painter 2018 https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Corel-PAI ... SwOt9ZgHt5

the best paint one you can buy thats cheap but good, is the down graded version of corel painter is painter essentials 5
Corel has a download trial and it only cost $36 to buy it.
