Relationships by toeknuckles Relationships by toeknuckles
From the upcoming Chakrainsight Oracle Deck!

As some of you may know, Iíve been working on an oracle deck for some time now.
Almost all the artwork has been kept under wraps until publication, but my client has generously allowed me to release two new images to you. This is one of them!

The reason I've been allowed to released these early is that I'm selling 4 x 6 prints with 100% of the sale going to help with the flood relief in Queensland, Australia.

This card is 'Relationships' - we hold each others hands.

Prints available at [link]
with the money going to a very good cause!

Some details:
Painted in photoshop with a wacom. Unsure of how many hours....lots and lots.
Details of how I paint skin, and a close up detail of this image can be found here: [link]
Just click the image mid-post for a larger, upclose look. ;-)

I envy the way you colour skin!! It's amazing!

Also, have reposted your blog on fb about the flood relief donations. I think it's a wonderful thing that you're doing <3

Holy crap, is that a painting? or computer generated? Either way, it's bloody amazing. You're really talented. They really look.. real.

It makes it even better that it's a deck card. I was wondering, what's the main difference between oracle cards, and tarot cards, or are tey the same basic thing? Or do you not know xD.

Essentially, it's to do with the deck's structure. You can use them much the same way, but a tarot deck will always be much the same as another - a few cards here and there may change, the artwork will differ, but the structure of it will remain - four suits, pip cards, face cards.
Oracle cards can be use the same way, but they differ a lot more. They may have more or less cards than a tarot deck would, may have more suits, less suits, or even no suits.

I've ramble a bit, but essentially oracle decks are a more modern inspiration taken from the more traditional, structured tarot. ;-)

Ohh, I see. I have Oracle cards and Tarot cards, so I was just wondering, other than the obvious differences, what they were. Thanks for the help! (:.

No problem!
They're both fun - I have a bit of a weakness for collecting both types, myself.
