The Lost Arcana - 24 by agent57 The Lost Arcana - 24 by agent57
I know tarot cards are kinda... done a lot. But I wanted to do this. And I figure instead of doing new versions of the old cards, I would make new ones! ...or something. I've got more in mind, from different fandoms. This one is kind of obvious, but I hope some of the other ones will be more obscure. (If I do them, cough.)

I went a little crazy with the iconography and the religious-like stuff. Hope no one's offended... it's just fun to draw.

Card 24 - The Doctor, sometimes referred to as The Lonely God. There have been several diverse designs of it found. The versions vary greatly, though some of the symbols are consistent in all of them. This card represents adventure, knowledge, and longevity. When reversed, the card represents isolation, grief, and stormy weather.

[edit] I meant to mention this before, and possibly it's pretty obvious... the nine doctor faces in the background were traced in Illustrator. Yes, TRACED. I wasn't as familiar with their faces, and I really just wanted to make it look pretty...

Incredible job here! This kind of captures the whole "The Doctor, mythical God-like being seen throughout history" mystique that he's got.

Fantastic. Especially love the little bits of symbolism, like the hearts and the earth about the tardis, and the screwdriver.

Also? How absolutely innocent he looks. Of course, as soon as his eyes open you could tell he's pure mischief, but like this he looks peaceful.
