Okay that was hecking hard, but also I had a ton of fun drawing it! I LOVE Dragon Age tarot style, i loved it even before I started drawing so this is kind of my little dream came true 🥰
Farie’s card inspired loosely by The Moon

The Moon. Art by Karina Pavlova, from The Corrupted Tarot.
A shattered reflection of a werewolf—as unstable in her physical form as she is in her wrecked mind. She denies accepting all the facets of her nature, including her weakness and monstrousness. When the corrupted Moon appears in a reading, you must muster your courage and sense of self, or you will remain lost in the darkness.
The most ridiculously detailed" image of Earth's lunar neighbor was a two-year project captured by two astrophotographers.
The 174-megapixel image, which shows the moon's colors, craters and glowing aura in stunning detail, was first revealed on Reddit on Saturday. Through Reddit and Instagram, Andrew McCarthy, known for his breathtaking astrophotography skills, teamed up with planetary scientist and fellow photographer Connor Matherne, who has been acclaimed for his striking and vibrant photos of galaxies and nebulae.
The two previously worked together to create an incredible glowing and detailed image of the moon.
On a post I reblogged recently about the moons rotation I noticed a lot of people saying it was fake. So here is some really interesting info about Tidal Locking.
"An enduring myth about the Moon is that it doesn't rotate. While it's true that the Moon keeps the same face to us, this only happens because the Moon rotates at the same rate as its orbital motion, a special case of tidal locking called synchronous rotation. The animation shows both the orbit and the rotation of the Moon."
" Earth’s Moon rotates, but it takes precisely as long for the Moon to spin on its axis as it does to complete its monthly orbit around Earth. As a result, the Moon never turns its back to us, like a dancer circling ― but always facing ― its partner.
This phenomenon, called “synchronous tidal locking,” sounds like a weird coincidence ― but it’s actually quite common. All the solar system’s large moons are tidally locked with their planets. The bigger moons synchronize early in their existence, within hundreds of thousands of orbits. Some binary stars are tidally locked to one another, and evidence is building that many planets beyond our solar system are tidally locked with their stars."
