Once all the artwork has been completed I hope to launch on kickstater.com for funding but I wanted to get some opinions of the style or if you spot something I could be doing wrong as I’m not a tarot card user, just a designer haha.
Sorry if you’ve seen this post on another forum, I want to get as many eyes as possible, though it seems the tarot community is spread out after the closer of the biggest

I really love the artwork. It's so beautiful and captivating. I looked at the FB page. My only other thoughts were I'd (obviously, personally) rather the Emperor be male, and I'd love the Empress to be either pregnant looking or surrounded by children or plentiful flowers to better showcase her qualities. Honestly though, it doesn't matter. They are very beautiful and will be very successful for you. Many blessings to you and on your project.
Thanks for the replies guys! The Facebook page is a little ahead but I'll post more on here and other forums as I get people opinions.
I'm glad the style appeals, so nerve-racking haha
With feedback from others below is the adapted fool card. Now we have a cliff, she's stepping forwards, her arm is out and her head is slightly up and hopefully shows that she is a little carefree and oblivious to the danger. The wolf is looking up to suggest that the companion can see the impending danger. I did try to have the wolf pulling her back but it looked too aggressive for the tone of the artwork. I've kept the background as I feel it helps to show the journey ahead of the fool.
I'll post some more soon and over take the automatic pace of the Facebook page haha
Below are the next two cards, I'm hoping that I've got closer to the meanings for these compared to the fool. Let me know what you guys think and if there are any obvious problems. Thanks for all your help

HOLMES: what did you use,, the living the tarot book , was it a course or a self goal ?

wildrosespeonies: Self goal. I don't have time to sign up for actual card studies class even though I know many places offer them online. I use the guidebooks that come with the deck(s) for reference when I can't recall a card.

wildrosespeonies: Also, I think guidebooks are underrated. They can put more detail into the illustrations and some of them are pure poetry. (Mesquite and Pagan Otherworlds being my favorite guidebooks for that reason -- language is amazingly used)

HOLMES: a book written for the deck can be excellent if it adds , the tarot of the elves talked about the story behind the minors, one was really sad.. the hudes guidebook , and robin wood was awesome .

wildrosespeonies: Ooh, Marigold Tarot's print guidebook is finally coming along. I think I'm gonna pass on the pouch though. That box is very sturdy.

wildrosespeonies: My local witchy store is closing so I bought supplies from there today. They will last a good while before I have to turn to etsy again.

eclecticjo: Thanx. I really appreciate it. It was my first of this type. May be my last lol

wildrosespeonies: Wow. I just discovered a tarot maker on kickstarter who blantantly stole another tarot maker's art. (The art is the art back of Sinking Wasteland.) I have let SW creator know. But wow! Can't believe that.
Jun 21, 2019 5:46:41 GMT
wildrosespeonies: The artist contacted the KS tarot card maker and they replaced the image, but I'm pretty sure the new image is stolen too. It looks familiar, but I don't recognize where the image come from.

auroralara: forum.tarotsphere.net The “force” behind tarot reading is always down to the reader. The “reader” being the mechanism by which tarot is interpreted is inevitably a human being or more. Humans being the creators of symbols and symbolism such as that
