Strength by gauntlette Strength by gauntlette
**I'm NOT the artist, I'm posting these here to hopefully get some more artists interested in contributing to my project.**

For Strength I wanted to tweak it some. Instead of just taming a lion, I chose Hercules, who of course killed the lion. I liked the idea of him wearing it as a show of strength as well.


Concept by me.

Cool art. Kind of misses the point of the Strength card though which is about the OPPOSITE of brute strength. Most versions of this card show a gentle maiden subduing the lion because it's about gentle strength through compassion, understanding and perseverance, not violence.

yes, i'm aware of the original meaning. the card is also about courage and will. i think he embodies inner strength as well as physical. it seems when people create their own decks, they take some liberties with the design and fit the art and concept into their own words, which is what i've done here. maidens wouldn't be a good fit here.
