A bit of a layout idea:

I'm really enjoying what you did with the oval layout to differentiate it from library and bring it closer to what VtES has been doing for ages.

I would show a bit more picture, and a bit less skin (har) by widening the oval a bit.

Furthermore, I would do something about the overlap on discipline bar. One idea would be to 'break' the oval layout, as if chipped away. The marble discipline bar would emerge underneath.

I think the issue with above is that widening the oval window means you have to get more 'picture' from somewhere. a lot of cards dont have that extra picture and ke did some wizardry to create some background.

problem appears when some cards art (specifically the edge of the head) is right on the edge of that oval.

eg carlotta giovani and lorrie dunsirn used to be rather...awkward.
(carlotta improves now, but is still a little jank)

The breakaway from clan colour to marble discipline area sounds cool though.

I have mixed feelings about this. we have several overlapping layers, but the sense of depth seems like something from M.C. Escher.

Why not just make the oval bigger and keep the original orientation, and keep the clan background underneath?

Also, the corners at the top are rounded and appear to be square at the bottom, and while a minor detail in the grand scheme of things, I can't unsee it now and it bothers me.

I like the name box being just above the text box, though.

The two marble bars look... just odd

What is the point of that annoying red lines that is all over the place?
To distract?

I'm pretty sure it's just Kraus illustrating the shape of frame he'd like to see. They're not on the actual cards.
