I love the death one, it's great. I think with the blue beard one, you should try flipping the composition horizontally. That way the narrative reads right to left, foreground to background.
I'm fond of the death one myself. Even though I think I made death look kind cutesy. Gotta fix that. And I was thinking of flipping it to get a stronger composition, but I was worried that it would be the only one in the deck you'd have to flip and that'd become awkward. I'm still planning on messing with it though. Thank you!
