The Angel of Chains by Lesleigh63 The Angel of Chains by Lesleigh63
The Angel of Chains
Right-sideup, this card indicates a loss of innocence. It signifies an awareness of the deceit in others, a loss of trust but a gain in wisdom.
Upside down, this card represents a fall from grace. It signifies yielding to temptation at the cost of personal integrity.

This is for Seventh Sanctum's Tarot contest [link] The card name I generated to illustrate was - The Angel of Chains.

For the painting, I relied on some self-portrait photos by Ewiku [link] as references to paint the main figure. I use Corel-photopaint and a tablet as my tools for painting.

Thanks, cabbyhat. Yes it's a painting except for the architecture in the background which is a photo.
