2 Heidewald Zodiac : Pisces

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Last year (2008) I started a zodiac series. The idea was to work in different manga styles and have the pictures done for Otakon. It took me about a month to get all of my research together before starting the sketches. I like to include a lot of the symbolisim of the different signs, and some times that trips me up when I can't decide what all I want to do. A couple pieces took three to four tries before I was happy with the final sketch, and there is one where  I ended up with two sketches I really like, and will finish both versions.  The series is  on Arches  HP watercolor paper, and had to be scanned in two parts and pasted together in Photoshop.Otakon was a disappointment, ( $10 for an original picture? I don't think so!), I ended up buying them back myself and in a later show I sold Leo and Virgo.  I am happy I didn't undersell myself, though I am sure some folks would say I still did. As of today I only have four done, Aries, Leo Virgo and Pisces. Of the four only Pisces can really be considered fantasy, what with her walking on water and all. the others i nthe series can be seen on my Deviant Art gallery.  Aires: http://celticwren.deviantart.com/art/Heidewald-Zodiac-Series-Aries-96726123Leo: http://celticwren.deviantart.com/art/Heidewald-Zodiac-Series-Leo-96727045Virgo:  http://celticwren.deviantart.com/art/Heidewald-Zodiac-Series-Virgo-96728522   Prints and other items with this illustration on them are available at Ellen Million Graphics: http://www.ellenmilliongraphics.com/fantasyart/emgproduct.php?id=2029 The original of the border, which I adjusted for my pciture, is courtesy of the lovely   inspyretash-stock , and can be found here: http://inspyretash-stock.deviantart.com/art/Border-Art-Nouveau-12-85381389
