It's a hand draw, scanned and inked, coloured in with ps, isn't it?

I like your interpretation of the Tarot with a Tolkien theme.
Your artwork is certainly great!
But: The Hanged Man is a sacrificial Card, where the Hero undergoes this ordeal voluntarily (actively):
The Position of the legs like a "4" upside down is a symbol of this, quite well used by Waite/Coleman-Smith in their Tarot.
It is the inverted "The Tree" Asana (position) of Yoga and a shamanic Trance position also, and it is used in masonic ritual (3rd degree) in a similar fashion.

Perhaps you can think about a Card number 12 with this symbolism intact ??
This is always a problem with Tarot artwork, some decks are so fantastic to the eye, but symbolically all wrong, a real pity.

I am aware of the traditional symbols, thank you.
This deck is initially not for use, I intentionally chose not to do full adaptation to the Tarot symbolism. I like it like this.
Besides, there are different Tarot practices, and not all of them are fixated on such a thorough symbol representation.
Nevertheless, thank you for your opinion.

So beautifully done.

(Even though this is one part of the movie trilogy that makes my skin crawl).

Love it. :love:

The Major Arcana of the Tarot contains 21 cards. I hope to do all of them, and if possible, then use different characters for each card

Oh noes! Not the big spider in the caverns near Mordor! That thing still gives my sister nightmares, and gives us both a right good scare!

Yes! this is one of the most terrifying scenes in the book and in the movie...So I decided not to draw the spider - would it be horrible and terrifying.
