Le Soleil

For one of my senior projects, I'm spending some time doing a few tarot cards. This is the first one:

Does the white space look unfinished? Should he have a face? I don't want to do anything that is necessarily "typical" of a tarot deck, I'd like to make things better designed and tasteful.

Hand cut paper, three cut layers. 7x11"

I think it would be interesting if you filled that white space with some intricate design. That would really make it feel like a tarot card. But def NOT a face.

I love the details on the leaves!

something definitely needs to go in there. The whiteness is begging for it. I'm sure you'll come up with something great-- maybe something mimicking the pattern you chose for the leaves or the grass.

Those are really good suggestions... I'm gonna leave it alone for a week and then see if the pattern works well. Thank you guys!
