The Monarch of Illness by Morganne The Monarch of Illness by Morganne
"The Monarch of Illness"

The Monarch of Illness serves to remind us of the internal struggle we all have with temptations. If upright, it suggests that giving in to one's temptations could lead to a bad end, and if reversed, the same can apply to resisting them. It can also be understood as a warning to slow down and take time to see things as they truly are before making any decisions.

Look! I made a background!

Anyways, this is for the tarot card contest over at Seventh Sanctum [link]
I used a few textures from cgtextures.com but everything else is mine.

Love the expression, the colours, everything! I think the background perspective may be a bit off, but it's coloured so nicely and blends in so well you don't really notice=)

Oh, wow. So much detail. I hope you win... you really deserve it.

You put so much into the coloring... Her wings and tattoos (especially the scaly bits on her face) are quite impressive.

And... I'm jealous that you can draw BGs. Extremely.

I love how you incorporated the monarch butterfly into the picture - it's so clever with respect to interpretation of the cards title. Nice pic.
