Just so you know as well, we are meeting at 1pm (Toronto time) Mon, Tues, Thurs,Fri, sat evening and late Sunday for progress and feedback...a good idea as its the last stretch and theres not that much time left to be critiqued.
I'd say make it smaller like in the thumb in my opinion.
I'm going to start redrawing tonight, been waayyy too slackey since yesterday LOL!
Here are the beginnings of my finals. going to do intial greyscale rendering tonight. However I wanted you guys to see where I am going and give me any crits to help improve the pictures. The first one is justice and second is 7 of wands. I think for Justice I am going to go this route. For the 7 of wands card, I am probably going to change her grip on her staff, give her a more defensive stance. as well maybe making the background either a forest setting or a barren/battlefield setting. give me some feedback as to what you think I should go for. Nef you start seems pretty good. I think that you should keep it large, it seem much more ornate that way. Wilkerson, glad to see you again. good start I vote for the lower middle one. kinda has an angelic quality to it that might be really cool if pushed further.

Hey Nef, how do you prevent your rendering from looking muddy?
Tried both...i kind of like the smaller one better since i started re-working it.
@geist-stop my rendering from looking muddy....uh eyedropper tool and colour overlays over the under-painting I guess. After that point i then add colour in small amounts with help from the eye dropper.
Oh also here progress on star so far.
To avoid having a million posts, i'm just going to append the progress for the last day or two till now.

simply wonderful Nef, simply wonderful.
Here is an update on Justice. My goal is to finish up on her tonight and to begin on the seven of wands. dont worry I will make it.
OH OH!!! Very very nice Geist!
My goal is to have my pentacles ready for final paints tonight, Moon tomorrow, and then color on saturday.
ok...so everyone can work on their stuff...no more daily meetings.
I do recommend a meeting tomorrow or Saturday though.
Let me know what time is best for you...i can meet anytime tomorrow night and Sat after 7:30pm EST. I work on Sunday...thus the times for tomorrow and sat.
Here are my updates. I think color for Justice today, and if I am lucky for the 7 of wands as well. Nice render Wilkerson. keep at it, dont stress out too much We are supposed to have fun.
@ wilkerson- I really like the last sketch you posted...good composition. Can't wait to see more...
@geist- Like how Justice is coming along...7 of wands as well. Do you have any ideas for the colours yet?
oh...and heres my progress so far. I plan on staying up all night tomorrow to try to finish these (right before my 12hr work shift)...i will make it ><!!!!
I think that I am about Done with Justice. Here is what the final will look like, all I have to do is make some final adjustments. Also here is the 7 of wands. I went into a totally different direction with this one. tell me what you think. I also will be done with this tommorrow. I am sooo tired. I will everyone tommorrow. Also great job Nef. you truly are good at what you do. even the cups looks awesome. I dont see how you are not finished. well see you guys tommorrow
