As you probably know, the Kickstarter ended a couple weeks ago and was successfully overfunded. Here's the link, in case you missed it:https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/go ... ury-1-of-8
Also, here's the other forum thread that references the Mercury deck:viewtopic.php?f=8&t=10474
Now for something new and exciting...
Srdjan has started working on concept for Venus and I just received his initial concept art (image below).
Notes from him:
I read that "Venus and Earth are often called twins because they are similar in size, mass, density, composition and gravity.", so I imagined creatures from Venus to be the most similar to humans, because they develop in similar conditions.
But, they have to be different somehow. I din't want to make them with one eye, big nose, or something like that, because then they would appear ugly and Venus is the goddess of "love, sex, beauty, and fertility." So, they would have to be beautiful. So I thought maybe they could have long ears and long hair, like fairies are often presented.
Kings don't have to be so tough, they are more lovers then fighters. My idea for Jacks is to draw a woman instead of man ( and that can be something special for this deck ), because "women are from Venus", as the saying goes.
I tried to keep illustration in the same style like in Mercury deck, but with different kind of clothing.
