Tarot Night Crawler by DubuGomdori Tarot Night Crawler by DubuGomdori
This is Night Crawler from the X-Men series. He is representing the Hierophant card. Basically an elaborate title for the priest. Despite the high position and insurmountable knowledge he holds he is humble. So I thought personality wise Night Crawler was the best choice.

The keys are symbolized as the highest power in church, usually reserved for the pope. The lilies around the keys symbolizes purity. There is a cross behind nightcrawler, and inscribed on the cross is the virgin mother holding her son baby Jesus.
The empty tag place where the letter Hierophant is supposed to be, has an angel wing and a demon wing surrounding it. This symbolizes how good and evil is both within the Hierophant's power and he will balance and control the opposing aspects.

11x17(inch) graphite pencil.

Kurt baby... he is easily my favorite X-Man just because of his backstory. Heartbreaking piece of literature there, and incorporating his faith into the card... I would buy these tarot cards if you sold them. I use my own tarot cards religiously, meaning a lot and not that I worship them or something, and it'd be awesome to see Kurt on one(:

A beautiful piece! I never thought I would see two of my favorite things put together - tarot and the X-men! The Heirophant is a perfect fit for Kurt, spot on! Now I have to see who you matched up to the other archetypes *delighted grin* thank you for the amazing work, it must have taken a lot of time and skill, bravo.
