I keep going back and forth on whether to give the Queen of Swords a crown. I couldn't find any specific meaning to it other than royalty aspect, so I'm not sure if I should take the risk changing the aesthetics. On the other hand, it might provide that nice finishing touch I've been looking for as well.
In the end, it's finished for now. Once the entire suit is done I'll be revisiting all of the cards and reworking details to bring them all stylistically together. That seems like a good time to look deeper into the idea of a crown.
For now, anyhow, its onward to the next card in the series. King of Swords, Three of Swords, and Eight of Swords are all on deck. Stay tuned.
