”A mysterious Fortune Teller has just arrived in your town. No one knows who she is, nor where she came from, but rumours claim she owns a unique set of Tarot cards: when she shuffles them and then lays a card on the table, the character in it comes to life..” – This short brief invited artists to the new Challenge at the beginning of July 2017. And people from the whole World started to share their beautiful artworks. And so did I. I’ve created an interpretation of Strength, a Tarot Card of Major Arcana.
Character Design Challenge (CDChallenge) is an amazing challenge in which people from the whole World participate. Its main goal is to unite artists no matter what is their skill level or style. CDChallenge promotes their art, thus helps them to develop their skills. The greatest thing, in my opinion, is that people help each other. And to be honest I myself noticed, like never before, that my skills get better. Not only in a field of technique (the process was faster) but as well as in creative thinking.
At the beginnig the problem lied in a choice of the right Card. I was choosing from a selection of 22 Major Arcana’s Carts. Firstly I planned to create a character that refered to Tower Card (disaster, sudden changes, revelation). I took an interst in Temprace (balance, patience) and Wheel of Fortune (good luck, karma). But at last I choose Strength (courage, control). I did some researche about it.
