That calendar should totally be a thing. I like the lightning in the image, and it does make me wonder what Osric is daydreaming about...

This thread is incredible. Truly beautiful work, wangxiuming! ♡
Your skill in muscle definition and use of color palette is on another level entirely.

I say said calendar should totally be collaborative with all the creative folks we have hanging around here! (and damn right I'm down for one :twisted: )

If Nathan goes in the calendar I request he be tastefully censored by puppies and kittens.

Haha ohmygosh. I totally underestimated how much interest there would be in a Men of BGTSCC Calendar ... :shifty: Just to be clear, I'm not actually tackling a calendar project ATM (I need to finish my tarot set first, at least ;) ), although I would love to contribute to a collaborative one like Fury suggested with all the rest of BG's artists!

As promised, here is the completed Tarot I mentioned in my last post. It's Aesa as the Star! This one's a commission from Kaybrie. Thank you for supporting me! <3

https://www.biddytarot.com/tarot-card-m ... cana/star/

Since this was a commission, Kaybrie and I spent some time discussing which Arcana would be most fitting for her character, Aesa. As with all the subjects of these cards, I like to draw from the character's history, personality, and recent character development. After mulling some of the options, we eventually landed on the Star.

Long story short, the Star arcana in its upright position represents hope, faith, renewal, spirituality and purpose. We thought the card would be a good fit for Aesa because had a crisis of faith some time ago, but her coming to terms with a new path and future led to her discovering a new faith in Mielikki. The Star also suggests a time for self-reflection, rediscovery of inspiration and purpose. Aesa has gradually been growing as a person over her time on BG, choosing to forgo alcohol to improve herself, while finding purpose and solidarity in the Radiant Heart, something she originally shied away from. All of these developments really made Star resonate when we were deciding on the final arcana.

Random Notes:
- The Rider-Waite version of the Star card shows a naked, kneeling woman with one foot on the water and one foot on the earth. Above her, eight stars shine in the sky, while a verdant In my version, Aesa replaces the naked woman. She sits with one foot submerged in the pond, while the other rests above.
- The woman from the original pours two jugs of water (one into a lake, the other onto land). Aesa pours alcohol from her gourd into the pond, representing her abstinence.
- The Rider-Waite card features eight stars (one central Star + seven peripheral ones) that hang in the sky above the woman's head. In my card, the whole sky is full of countless stars - however, if you look closely, you should see that a constellation in the shape of Mielikki's symbol is derived from eight of the brightest stars.
- Aesa's wounds are intended to represent her fighting nature, where she is not afraid to take a beating, but is more than capable of giving one right back.

I know you are all waiting for it.....
I agree, Valduil should be in the calendar, however I make one request similar to Nathan's.

Although Valduil would be censored by shrubbery.



Maybe a nice spruce.

After RPing with Aesa a bit on Mi-Le, I have to say this depiction is spot-on. Aesa comes off as a world-weary warrior searching for something more, both in RP and in this card. Amazing job as always, wangxiuming.

Now, about that calendar... :lol:
