Zodiac - Aquarius by Ellygator Zodiac - Aquarius by Ellygator
(2009) 9"x12" pencil, ink, watercolor, silver leaf, photographed and framed in Photoshop.

We're getting towards the end here... Just Pisces to do now. For Aquarius I dipped again into the soft blues and purples of the air signs.

My favourite piece, as it's my favourite (and my own) sign ;o). The blue is adorable, it's my absolutely favourite shade of blue - as far as I can tell on my screen, of course.

Creative. I like that you placed her vase with water at the top of her head,making the water ran down in her hair. Or is it her hair that look like water?:O

I like the calm, serene ook on her face. The blues are nice colors, too...though I personally would have used blues and aquas... hehe Great job!

Thanks so much! I was thinking about that, but felt it would look very much like a water sign then, which it isn't...

I know, to actually mention water in the name for it, and then stick it in air... Oh well, traditions!

I love all your zodiac pieces, but i must say i'm rather biased towards this one (as i'm aquarius) and i've been patiently waiting for you to make it :aww: I especially love how you've coloured the circle's intricate patterns with variants of blue. To me it is so striking, as is the rest of the piece. Lovely work :)

The colors and shading on this one are wonderful and wet:) Another option would have been to lengthen the woman's hair, allowing the locks to become/flow into the waves in the surrounding border, but that might also have made it too busy. Overall, it's fantastical!:)
