    Could these cards come from an existing Tarot or Oracle deck?

    You might try browsing through some of the images here:

    Great idea for a prop TDR. Hopefully someone can help spare their time or someone will discover where these came from.

    D'oh.

    I knew it would take a long time to browse that site, because there are a lot of different decks pictured there. I'm sorry to hear, though, that hours of searching turned up nothing... :(

    I ground through my clip art and couldn't find anything remotely close. The first card SEEMS to be tarot -- what with the number VII in the corner, but the second one looks like it came out of an Angelina Ballerina book.

    I doubt this is from an original deck - in the first draught of the script it describes the flying dolphins and the two frogs. If it were a found item I'd imagine in the script it would simply say "tarot card".

    Seems more likely that it was turned over to an art department.

    yea i dont think they are found items, but rather custom made for the movie as most every item in the film was.

    if they are found items...they certainly aren't tarot cards...they may be from an oracle deck (i'm not too familiar with them)...but the images don't correlate to any card in the tarot deck....skott

    i think the cards are "Carot" cards. Carot is the Tarot in the Tery Pratchett's 'Discworld'. I have been trying to find more info, but i don't think a real deck is out there.

    carot cards by a fan

    I checked the script and it does discribe a deck of "picture cards" with flying dolphins on the back and:
    1. John's card - 2 frogs on a bench
    2. Chaz's card - a bear in a dress

    For what it's worth...

    Any clue as to the dimentions? I might have time to work on these :)

    I have no real clue as to the dimensions. All I would do would be to size them up unitl the thumb in the image was a little larger than mine, seeing as that is Tonoi holding the card and he is HUGE. lol.

    Hey.

    Here is a little something I worked up this afternoon. Let me know what you think. I am not going to have a lot of time for this project within the next three weeks with graduation but I am going to get it done little by little this summer.

    Just need feedback on colors and such...

    Hey.

    Here is the start to the dolphin card. A little easier as far as the main part but the background texture is going to be a punk.

    Looking good so far, A little Mario esque but good. As for the colors I would say look to Tarot cards for color and whatnot.

    I think the colors have to do with the Mario feel. I am thinking of printing it on a tan cardstock... what do toy think? Should the frogs be green or brown?

    I think the frogs should be green with all black eyes and small white "reflective" areas on them

    Here is what I have now... the only thing missing is the flower on the right side...

    I have added an effect to most of the artwork to give it that tarot feel and give it some more texture and less clear-cut line definition. How's it look everyone...

    You are doing a great job. looks good. I would say that you need nice clean solid black outlines around each character and then a nice fill color vibrant and bright, and then key down the saturation a bit. You will get the right texture when it is printed, so there is no need to add it before hand.

    Before i post the finalized picture... I want to print this thing out on paper... do you think a post card size will work? Also... I need a back shot to work on it.
