Very cool, What materials do you use?.


FaLk responds:

Thanks, I use rapidograph pens and felt tip micron pens. I also use black watercolours


This seems to be based on Baphomet, the alleged God that the Knight Templars were accused of worshiping before their wrongful trial, as depicted by the 19th century French occultist Éliphas Lévi.

It could be suggested that the word "Baphomet" was a bastardization of "Mohammed," since the Knight Templars were actually allies with the early Hashahshins, despite what the Assassin's creed games tell me.

The devil From the Paul foster case deck was actually originally based off Eliphas Levi's Baphomet, and I did the same. . Because baphomet is such an awesome image! Also baphomet and the devil share some similarities in symbolism. However there are a few differences: instead of angel wings, Paul foster case's devil has vampire bat wings. Instead of a flame facing upwards, the devil is holding the flame towards the ground (causing it to burn faster and shorter). Instead of holding his hand up with 3 fingers revealed and 2 concealed (a common symbol of divinity), the devil shows his whole hand. Instead of the pentagram facing up, the pentagram is facing down in the devil card. I see the devil as being baphomet's antithesis.
