Software used:
Photoshop

And now, the final step: the cards! I wanted the cards to resemble tarot cards and be scattered on the dress and floor around her like they had been carelessly thrown about. To create the cards, I first drew out a few images on paper and scanned them into Photoshop for painting. Afterwards, I inserted the cards into the image and used the Free Transform feature to distort the cards, making them appear angled. The card she's holding sports a demonic being, symbolizing her fate. The others include a goddess with a child and a snake with a sword. These extra cards surrounding her have no meaning in the story, they're just for looks. (Plus I really enjoyed making them!) (Fig.06).

By finishing this image, I feel like I've created the image that I imagined originally, and I'm really happy with the way it turned out (Fig.07).

Wonderful tutorial; never knew that photoshop is capable of producing such fantastic painting, but tools are worthless without skilled workmen. Well done Sara!!!
