DeviantART: The Ace of Clubs by Judyta Anna Murawska

This is a quick drawing from a Polish artist, Judyta Anna Murawska (Fukari). She says that the artwork was “inspired” by boring classes 🙂 This playing card artwork is the one way Ace of Clubs. Taking into account that some “queen of stars” is featured in the card, indices of the Queen of Clubs could be more natural for it. But this is author’s vision. She sees the Ace of Clubs as a dreaming lady – a big admirer of piercing.

DeviantART: Playing Cards by Felix-leg

A Polish artist, Felix-leg (nickname), designed the Two of Hearts devoted to dragons. The result has some connection with semi-transformation motives. Love is common for all creatures… even for mythical ones.

DeviantART: Playing Cards by Anna Podedworna

These playing card artworks were created by a Polish artist, Anna Podedworna (akreon). The cards are interesting combinations of paintings and collages. So many intricate details have been incorporated into pips and bodies of court cards. Unfortunately, there are only three court cards… at this moment.

Fans of RPG games that are driving now the witcher Geralt of Rivia (The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt) along the vast expanses of Kaer Morhen, No Man’s Land, Skellige, and White Orchard should also know that Anna is a concept artist at CD Projekt RED (Poland).

DeviantART: Three Musketeers Playing Cards by Hannah Friederichs

Hannah Friederichs (AgarthanGuide) was recently mentioned on pages of this site with her Daredevil playing card artworks. This post is devoted to other playing card artworks created be this American artist. These are also some type of fan art made as playing cards. The same “portrait” approach to courts.

  1. Three Musketeers Playing Cards

The Three Musketeers is a historical adventure novel by a French writer, Alexandre Dumas (24 July 1802 – 5 December 1870). The novel tells about the adventures of a young man named d’Artagnan (The King of Hearts) after he leaves home to travel to Paris with the aim to join the Musketeers of the Guard (a fighting company of the military branch of the Maison du Roi, the Royal Household of the French monarchy). The adventures take place in the 17th century. Three musketeers are d’Artagnan’s friends, Athos (The King of Spades), Porthos (The King of Clubs) and Aramis (The King of Diamonds). Their main adventure is caused by intrigues and queen’s vaudeville at the court of King Louis XIII (The King of Clubs – the second in this pack :)) and Queen Anne of Austria (The Ace of Diamonds?).

D’Artagnan finds and loses his love, Constance Bonacieux (The Queen of Hearts). She was killed by Milady de Winter (should be the Queen of Spades).

Definitely the artworks need additional improvement to become real playing cards. But they are quite nice.

DeviantART: Daredevil Playing Cards by Hannah Friederichs

Hannah Friederichs (AgarthanGuide) is an American artist. She has created several subject playing card artworks. Themes are quite different. Styles are also quite different. The only common thing is her “portrait” approach. But one way courts aren’t always bad 🙂

This post is devoted to her Daredevil playing cards. These are some type of fan art made as playing cards… like her other playing card artworks.

Daredevil is a fictional superhero brought by Marvel Comics. The character was created by writer-editor Stan Lee and artist Bill Everett. His first appearance can be found in American comic book, Daredevil #1 (April 1964).

Daredavil is a lawyer, Matt Murdock, in his daily life. Living in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of New York City, Matt is blinded by a radioactive substance that falls from an oncoming vehicle. The radioactive exposure takes his sight, but heightens his remaining senses beyond normal human ability and gives him a type of sonar which acts as his vision. The superhero fights against his many enemies.

Netflix (an American provider of on-demand Internet streaming media available to viewers) hired Drew Goddard (an American film and television screenwriter, director, and producer) to create web television series devoted to the hero in December 2013. All episodes of the first season premiered on April 10, 2015. The series reveal Murdock’s early days fighting crime, juxtaposed with the rise of crime lord Wilson Fisk. The style of Daredevil was slightly changed – no red tights this time.

“I started with the card dedications given to Fisk and Daredevil and went from there.  I considered expanding it and adding a bunch of other characters, but – no plans as of yet.” ~ Hannah Friederichs

The Jack of Hearts is Daredevil (Charlie Cox). The King of Hearts (senior person?) is his friend and partner in his law firm, Franklin “Foggy” Nelson (Elden Henson). The Queen of Hearts is the secretary for Murdock’s law firm, Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll). The Queen of Diamonds is Fisk’s love interest, Vanessa Marianna (Ayelet Zurer). The King of Diamonds is Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio). The Jack of Diamonds is Fisk’s right hand man, James Wesley (Toby Leonard Moore).

DeviantART: Playing Cards by Ingrid Tan

This royal pair, the King of Diamonds and the Queen of Diamonds, was designed by a Philippine artist, Ingrid Tan (IngridTan). The queen seems to be quite happy. Maybe it’s because she is a pretty girl like Ingrid. The king is definitely upset. Maybe because of the queen’s endless shopping… maybe because of the indices inside the frame… or maybe because he has cut off his own feet. Who knows?
