@Chaosakista

They look great and match well.

I like how Gendo is labeled the emperor and Ritsuko the Empress.

Here's more:

Image

XI: STRENGTH - Eva-01 with Positron Gun

STRENGTH/DISCLIPLINE/PERSEVERANCE/STABILITY

This one's original image was really dark. I think I lightened it too much...

Image

XII: THE HANGED MAN - Lilith

SACRIFICE/SURRENDER/PATIENCE/HARMONY

Yet another idea of Legendary. I was originally going to use Lilith as the Empress, but I figured this idea worked better.

Image

XIII: DEATH - Eva-01 in LCL

CONCLUSION/ELIMINATION/INEXORABILITY/TRANSITION

The picture wasn't very clear originally, but I like the way the coloring makes the picture look abstract. It's supposed to be Sachiel's LCL "blood."

Image

XIV: TEMPERANCE - Shinji in Hospital

BALANCE/HEALING/SECURITY/UNIFICATION

It was hard to show that Shinji was in the hospital.

Image

XV: THE DEVIL - Sachiel

IGNORANCE/ANXIETY/VICE/ANGER

Image

XVI: THE TOWER - NERV Geofront

EGO/CHANGE/DOWNFALL/CRISIS

"Hanged" is spelt wrong, but they're all beautiful.

chaosakita: I don't think of Rei/Shinji as a couple myself, but them depicted in the lovers card works for their relationship in 1.0 and with Lilith as hell-train Rei I think.

Series version Tarot card icons, whee!

Based on some suggestion's of Teague. Thanks to FadingReminder and Legendary for their help in IRC with some of these. I know these are still on the icon side of things (I apologize for the varying size, I worked with what I had) but whatever, I'm doing this for fun. I'd make Minor Arcana cards, not just Major Arcana, if I knew just where to begin (I know very little about Tarot cards in general, so doing this was interesting).... And although this is just for fun, I did my best to pick characters that fit each description (I also picked character images I that I did so it wouldn't be standard image fare, such as in Shinji's case).

Enjoy!

0: The Fool

Image

I: The Magician

Image

II: The High Priestess

Image

III: The Empress

Image

IV: The Emperor

Image

V: The Hierophant

Image

VI: The Lovers

Image

VII: The Chariot

Image

VIII: Justice

Image

IX: The Hermit

Image

X: Wheel of Fortune

Image

XI: Strength

Image

XII: The Hanged Man

Image

XIII: Death

Image

XIV:Temperance

Image

XV: The Devil

Image

XVI: The Tower

Image

XVII: The Star

Image

XVIII: The Moon

Image

XIX: The Sun

Image

XX: Judgment

Image

XXI: The World

Whoops! And that was the one I put with gradient text....

But thanks!

Here's the rest of the set:

Image

XVII: THE STAR - Kensuke and Touji

HOPE/TRUST/INSPIRATION/PEACE

Image

I figured they should go somewhere in my deck, so here they are. There's a lot of stars in the sky, so why shouldn't it be plural?

XVIII: THE MOON - Rei

FANTASY/ILLUSION/FEAR/DOUBT

This was another obvious choice.

Image

XIX: THE SUN - Hikari

JOY/ENLIGHTENMENT/INNOCENCE/OPTIMISM

Without Asuka, I went with the next best choice. Too bad there was only one scene with her.

Image

XX: JUDGEMENT - Kaworu

JUDGMENT/DECISION/REDEMPTION/FORGIVENESS

Despite being my favorite shot in the movie (lol), it took me forever to make a good card. I think I ended up making four or five before I found one that I like. Additionally, this card is also called "THE ANGEL."

Image

XXI: THE WORLD - Tokyo-3 with Misato and Shinji

FULFILLMENT/INTEGRATION/SUCCESS/WHOLENESS

This is their world, isn't it? Thank goodness for the brighten feature of Photoshop.

Thanks to bambinanero for the beautiful textures used in making this set!

When 2.02 comes out, I'll probably make another set just for it.

SSD: The empress and emperor are particularly impressive. However Rei is disgustingly distorted.

Rei looks distorted in the actual scene from Eva: Death, but glad you like it.

Wow.... WOW! Great choices for all of these different sets. I'd love to snag some for my LiveJournal, but I maxed out my icons :: Cries::

Alright so I made this...

Hopefully it's bit more correct than that version. I mostly used the Pictorial Key to the Tarot as reference.

HIP proposal cover for Death is a nice touch.

Kudos.

Ummm what do you mean by "correct"? I took characters and made livejournal sized icons inspired by the tarot. I don't see a way to be correct or incorrect for that.

Sorry, I meant better than the official deck. I originally made mine for a different thread or something, which was later merged.
And by "correct" I meant more in line with the cards' meanings. Though I'm not very satisfied with my choices for Wheel of Fortune, Justice, Devil, and Star.

Oh ok, I forgot that you posted your own thread. Sorry about that!

And yeah the official deck is kinda whack.
