DeviantART: Playing Cards by Roksana

19 Jul

These playing cards were designed by the Polish artist, Roksana (NemezisAmaranth) and are dedicated to Greek Gods. This is an interesting combination of aged backgrounds and figures of court cards painted in a specific art style. The position of indices is disputable. Indices are English but names of Gods are in Polish.
