+Aries+ by Haileyjo13 +Aries+ by Haileyjo13
The first in my hopes of portraying a dark side to all 12 zodiac signs. Wish me luck!

Aries- March 21-April 20

Aries is most often portrayed as a golden ram in most images, and the original story behind Aries is that of a golden ram. Aries color is Red, and govern the head area.

In these, I want to portray as much as I can about each sign, and show the weakened areas. The area a sign governs, is where a person of that sign is most likely to have health issues, according to astrology.

This is a 14X17 piece, so a photo will have to suffice as my scanner isn't even half of this. XD;;
This was drawn, then inked, and colored in watercolor completely. Let's hope I can keep my stamina to complete the next 11!

Other signs:

The amount of detail you put into this is amazing! :wow: I love the painterly style ... watercolors just have something so ethereal about them! Seriously, with a style like this you could illustrate storybooks. Very good job!! :heart:

Thank you!
The only bad thing about how I did this was how warped my paper became from all of the water I applied before the color even. Hopefully it will straighten out.

I think it'll straighten out after some time.
Most of the stuff I've water colored in my life did. ((Few things))
I heard taping it down to a table as you work on it keeps it from buckling, but not 100%. So I think it should flatten out.

That's good! It seems like traditional art has a bunch of neat little tricks to it ... I never would have thought of taping it down!

I suppose it would work in logic. Its just a matter of having an area big enough to tape it down without ruining a desk surface as well. And I turn my pages so much. XDD;

Maybe a little square table and a swivel chair would do it? I imagine turning would be a problem ... I must turn my paper a lot too! When tracing, though, it's not good to leave your papers loose because you can easily warp the drawing that way if starts to move around. So I ended up taping both the original sketch and tracing paper down onto the back of a plastic portfolio--that way I can turn it easily and keep everything in place. :D

That's about as traditional as I get XD What neat little artist tricks do you have? (everyone's got 'em!)

That is a really good idea. When I was using carbon paper to track my drawings back to a new piece, I'd just tape them down to my desk, but that gets awkward cause I can't turn to get a good angle. I should try that next time.


I'm not quite sure what else I got. It just depends on the material, and how much i've worked with it. If I've worked with something more than once, I usually play around and see what I can do with it. Mixing things with it and what not.

I've been putting salt on my wet watercolors to make them look blotchy. lol.

About a week and a half worth the time then?
Still don't like some parts of it, but I guess it came out pretty good for my first major watercoloring.

Oh. My. F*cking. Gosh.

This is probably my most favourite artwork you've ever fricking done. I'm almost speachless...

It almost has that sort of "old sepia" touch to it... Just... Wow...
