This is an initial draft of the Ace of Pentacles. I'll most likely fool around with the lighting and try to make our fox a little more visible.
The Ace of Pentacles is a card signifying the raw powers of earth, or to be more exact, the creative powers of the material, which is actually a pretty broad term. This card can imply many things like a new skill, a new source of income, a chance to meet someone new, or a new possibility for personal growth, among countless other things.
Behind the fox (who is a Culpeo Fox, by the way) is a nebula in the shape of an inverted triangle with a horizontal strike through the middle, which is the alchemical symbol for earth. In Pagan circles, Earth (the element, not the planet) is most often placed in the North, which is the direction our fox is facing.
Made on a 17" MacBook Pro with Illustrator CS3 (for the line work and card frame), Photoshop CS3 Extended (for everything else), and a Wacom Intuos3 6x11 tablet.

WOWZAS! You've only gotten better since starting them back in HS!
^w^ Thanks much. I mentioned in a previous blog that once I get all of my Aces done, and acquire a dA subscription, I'll sell them as poster prints. It'd be cool to have the four Aces adorning the four walls of someone's room.
yay for culpeo foxes!
You really know this tarot stuff huh?
