Steampunk Aquarius by cryptosilver Steampunk Aquarius by cryptosilver

something I did for a class assignment last week... I ended up getting really excited about this and I think I'll probably do the whole series of steampunk astrological signs, since people seem to be interested. <:

This would make a nice tarot card design, especially as the Magician.

Hahah, I'm probably going to be doing Virgo, Gemini, Libra and Sagittarius next because I have a clearer idea of how I'm going to do them. The animal-related signs are still up in the air because I'm trying to decide which direction I want to go with them. They'll all happen eventually this summer though!

Agh!
It'd be awesome if you did do all of them! and also if you sold them as prints at the cons you attend >3<
Last year at Otakon I bought your original Dog chinese zodiac painting, and I think having this sort of zodiac as well from you would be awesome haha
and because this is one of the coolest things I've seen in awhile from anyone!

I really love her boots and shorts and the whole teapot/water concept - it'd be cool to see what the other zodiacs would carry/have to represent them! x')

(THATS ACTUALLY MY MAIN MOTIVATION TO DO THE WHOLE SERIES WHOOPS)
Yeah I'd like to make some nice mini prints of each sign to sell at conventions! I should definitely have them all done in time for otakon, MAYBE for AX... I've been wanting to do a western zodiac series for years and I wanted it to be different from any others that exist, but I couldn't settle on an idea I was excited about until now. I hope it's received well, because I never know how well my original art is going to do at conventions. Otakon is one of the best for original art because they actually have a 50% original art/ fan art rule for the artists.
But yeah, the general idea is that I want to put a lot of thought into the designs for these. I'm a bit of an astrology nerd, so I want to try to incorporate the associated colors and a character that fits the personality of each sign.

AWESOME!
Steampunk is pretty popular still, and although I'm not involved in that sort of thing, I still think it's really cool and I think a lot of people will love these. Oh really? I never knew that! (about Otakon's rule) I want to go to the AA with my own art one day (my twin and I PLAN on doing it for Otakon 2013...but probably 2014) And that's what you SHOULD do! (put a lot of time into it) I think a lot of people generalize the signs a lot and so not only would you be bringing this whole sort of new steampunk idea to it, but also a lot of new thought into it as well, and I think that's going to turn out really awesome!
Good luck! :')

This... is like the coolest thing I've ever seen. Such a gorgeous expression of style. I, for one, would adore seeing the rest of the Zodiac.
