Wow, so lovely. It was so much fun going through all your paintings. It took me 10-15 minutes, but I imagine it took you much longer to create them. Feels like I cheated ;P

That's a really beautiful card, I love the hair. c: You did great with the lighting, too - underwater drawings are really cool.

^_^ Wow, can't believe 5 more cards until the deck is complete. Have you finished the other aspects of the game then?

The idea is really interesting, although the card you have have created are very unique and beautiful (especially the owl faces ones) I find that they somewhat lack in symbolic cues. For someone who doesn't know the cards well it would be a bit heard to grasp their meaning considering the fact that a lot of cues are omitted, except the very main idea. For example The Death card is not quite represented at its full meaning.

I'd still definitely give the simulator a shot, since its a wonderful idea and you took a lot of time to carefully and delicately create each card, so the art alone is worth checking out.

Hi all! Thanks again for all the feedback! I've completed a new card since I last checked in. The "Ascent" card contains artistic nudity so I'll link to it below:

At the moment, the majority of the card readings still need to be written, and the UI needs to be coded. I don't anticipate those steps taking anywhere near as long as the card art though. I'm aiming to finish this before the end of the year :)

I've been conceptualizing Owl-Woman Oracle as more of an "oracle deck" loosely based on the RWS majors rather than a straight-up traditional tarot deck - for this reason (and due to time constraints xP) I omitted a lot of the detail of the RWS symbolism. Glad you like the art though! If I'm being honest with myself, this project is basically a vehicle for my owl woman illustrations. xD
