The first third of my Frozen Tarot deck (Major Arcana) is complete! Well, roughly the first third, since 22 cards doesn’t divide perfectly into three…. this is a fun little exercise so far! :)
Metatron by nasubionna
Super-way-mega-old (2001) drawing of Alan Rickman as the Metatron from “Dogma”. Even though it is super-way-mega-old, I still really like it. This scan is pretty bad, though, I wonder if I still have the original and can rescan it…. Micron pen, Prismacolor pencils, some Photoshop.
So, I like to imagine that Anna would drag Kristoff (not that he’d resist…) back to Wandering Oaken’s Trading Post and Sauna, where they first met, and this time take Oaken up on his offer to throw in a visit to the sauna. :)
Copic marker and Prismacolor pencils on paper.
Summary excerpted from LearnTarot.com because I am too lazy to type my own right now:
Except in rare cases, every human grows and develops within a culture. We learn by living with others. The Hierophant represents such official learning, especially in groups. A Hierophant is someone who interprets secret knowledge. On Card 5 we see a religious figure in a formal church setting. He is wearing the elaborate vestments of his office. His task is to bring the two initiates into the church so they can take up their appointed roles.
Besides churches, there are schools, clubs, teams, companies, and societies. The Hierophant represents all of these because his realm is structured groups with rules and assigned roles. Such environments emphasize belief systems - facts, rules, procedures, and ritual. Members are rewarded for following conventions. They develop a group identity.
In readings, the Hierophant often represents learning with experts or knowledgeable teachers. This card also stands for institutions and their values. The Hierophant is a symbol of the need to conform to rules or fixed situations. His appearance in a reading can show that you are struggling with a force that is not innovative, free-spirited or individual. Groups can be enriching or stifling, depending on circumstances. Sometimes we need to follow a program or embrace tradition, other times, we need to trust ourselves.
"Yzma is best princess" By Charamath
I can’t even handle how amazing these are.
This is the best. I LOVE Yzma.
12” X 16” acrylic on wood, framed originals. Plus, S/N giclee prints, editions of 50.
These are pretty damn badass. The ark of the covenant kicking some serious Nazi butt is one of my favorite movie moments OF ALL TIME. It’s just sooo intense, the music is amazing, and I desperately miss practical effects in a world of CGI.
Honorable mention/runner up is Donovan ultra-ageing after not choosing the right holy grail, another spectacular practical effect. I love those two movies SO MUCH.
I wonder how these two feel about going down in film history primarily for being face-melted Nazis? :D
For you folks who just messaged me about being Brad Dourif fans and remembering my fan art, here is a compilation (1 of 2) of my old-ass Brad Dourif fan art, mostly dated around 2003, I think. Enjoy! :D
Frozen Tarot: The High Priestess by nasubionna
Summary from LearnTarot.com: The High Priestess is the guardian of the unconscious. She sits in front of the thin veil of unawareness which is all that separates us from our inner landscape. She contains within herself the secrets of these realms and offers us the silent invitation, “Be still and know that I am God.”
The High Priestess is the feminine principle that balances the masculine force of the Magician. The feminine archetype in the tarot is split between the High Priestess and the Empress. The High Priestess is the mysterious unknown that women often represent, especially in cultures that focus on the tangible and known. The Empress represents woman’s role as the crucible of life.
In readings, the High Priestess poses a challenge to you to go deeper - to look beyond the obvious, surface situation to what is hidden and obscure. She also asks you to recall the vastness of your potential and to remember the unlimited possibilities you hold within yourself. The High Priestess can represent a time of waiting and allowing. It is not always necessary to act to achieve your goals. Sometimes they can be realized through a stillness that gives desire a chance to flower within the fullness of time.
