IRONWING Study Group - Index


Hi all

As promised, here's a little area where we can discuss the Ironwing and share our thoughts, insights and experiences with this wonderful deck.

From this thread we can move forward to helping eachother better understand the complex and unique imagery used.

Please start a new thread for each different card being discussed and I will update the index of threads here.

Lets use this thread to discuss more general matters.

BTW, I have already contacted the Author asking permission to use her artwork (from her website) and book descriptions which she has very kindly agreed to. If you wish to post a card image, can you please copy it and upload it from your pc rather than linking to it from the authors web site. Thanks.

Ironwing painted Cards and Sex Changes!


So!
I did it!
When I got the deck for Winter Solstice I knew, I wanted to paint the minors and the court cards.
It was a lot of fun!
I used special printer's ink pens and the colours are save to handle and shuffle and do not fade.
While ad it, 2 cards underwent a sex change!
The 2 of coils and the 2 of blades switched places. - for now...
I feel, sea-horses are Water Spirits with an emotional - relationship twist and the blades portrayed on the card look like water dippers used in the orient...
And the 2 snakes on the 2ex 2 of coils remind me of wrapping my mind around a situation, shedding old stereotypes and also "eating my own thoughts" over and over like the orobora... mulling endlessly without progress = definitely a "mind" or Air card....
Here are some scans:
What do you think???

I must admit they do look incredible Mi-Shell. Cudos to you for doing that. I'm not brave enough but then I sort of like them as they are as well.

wow Mi-Shell, that is awesome!
What kind of pens did use use exactly? I know we are not supposed to advertise but maybe you could just slip me the brand name of those pens? Wonderful colours.

Me too. If you remember...I don't think it's advertising to share information on art supplies.

I have tried Lettraset ProMarker pens and they seem to work very well. No smudging, nice colors..
Mi-Shell used other pens by Lettraset (I forgot the name) but they were not available in my art shop, so I tried the ProMarkers instead.

Since 3 months now I am drawing my daily card from the Ironwing. -- whenever i am home that is....
I much enjoy the Majors, but the Minors at times are a little harder to grasp....
I absolutely rejoice in the Spirit Guides!

.... and I can't wait to see some of everyone's coloured cards!!!!!!
