DeviantART: Jack & Queen of Hearts by Lenka Vraždová

Lenka Vraždová (fashion-jerk) combined Jack and Queen in one playing card. Locke & Celes from Final Fantasy VI are depicted on the card art. It was painted with watercolors.

Final Fantasy VI is a role-playing video game developed and published by Square (now Square Enix) for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) platform in 1994. The game’s story takes place in a fantasy world with a high level of technology development. It focuses on a group of rebels as they seek to overthrow an imperial dictatorship.

Final Fantasy VI features fourteen permanent playable characters. Locke Cole is a treasure hunter and rebel sympathizer with a powerful impulse to protect women. Celes Chere is a former general of the Empire (the most advanced nation in the game), who joined the Returners (a rebel organization seeking to overthrow the Empire and free its territories) after being jailed for questioning imperial practices.

Final Fantasy is quite popular theme for playing cards – read about real playing cards devoted to it: a) Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary Playing Cards; b) Blackjack Casino Playing Card Deck by Laura Wilson and

DeviantART: Seasons Playing Cards by Schreiend

These playing cards were created by the Australian artist, Schreiend.  She prepared them for her Art Final (I assume this is some school project). Four suits – for seasons. The seasons concept is quite popular for playing cards. Here is some type of anime style. Interesting approach was applied to Jacks. Indices aren’t traditional and reflect appropriate seasons.

  • Spring- Hearts;
  • Summer- Diamonds;
  • Autumn- Clubs;
  • Winter- Spades

DeviantART: Elvish Playing Cards by Azz

These playing cards were designed by Azz (Azzedar-san). He created them for some on-line solitaire game. It’s a pity that courts aren’t symmetrical. While courts look more like posters, Jokers are really nice (Hoyle’s faces of Jokers aren’t necessary in the corners) for any vivid classic deck. The back is also interesting. But its corners “call” for improvements.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome elves. Traditional elves for red suits, and dark elves for black suits. This is a nice idea, by the way.
