I did this piece for a project on LJ called SPN Tarot [link]
. It's really an amazing project and it's got some great submissions so check it out!
Here is info on my card:
Card name: Judgement
Prompt: Sam in Detox
Basic Card Description
"With Fire as its ruling element (or Pluto as its ruling planet), Judgement is about rebirth, resurrection. The idea of Judgement day is that the dead rise, their sins are forgiven, and they move onto heaven. The Judgement card is similar, it asks for the resurrection to summon the past, forgive it, and let it go. There are wounds from the past that we never let heal, sins we've committed that we refuse to forgive, bad habits we haven't the courage to lose. Judgement advises us to finally face these, recognize that the past is past, and put them to rest, absolutely and irrevocably. This is also a card of healing, quite literally from an accident or illness, as well as a card signaling great transformation, renewal, change."
Basic Card Symbols
Angel, trumpets, graves with people rising from them, often water or an ocean.
Artist Notes: I missed MOST of the card symbols which makes me sadface but overall I liked the effect. At first I was going to do something dark and evil for this but since Judgement is more about redemption I wanted to show Sam being released. The angel wings at the top denote both Angels and Cas.
Above Sam shines the Devil's Trap that looms above him in the Panic Room. I really enjoyed the warped perspective in this and getting that sense of looming. Originally the wings were going to be cobalt-blue/black but I am really liking how the teal and purple and pinks gave it sort of...a raven feather look I guess? So many things I still want to tweak. Hope you guys like it!
