Aries Sheratan of Mars by Katmomma Aries Sheratan of Mars by Katmomma
Inspired from the Greek Celestial Astrology, Aries the Ram
Though putting my own spin on Aries, he is Aries Sheratan. (Sheratan is the name of a star in the actual constellation)
Ruled by the Planet Mars, Aries is the Cardinal (or dominant) Fire Sign.

Now if you have ever talked to a person born in Aries, you'll notice their proud and fiery nature. They are also the type of person to blow their top easily, of get pissed off about little things. But like all fire, it burns out quickly. And like most fire signs, Aries has a burning passion for the things they love to do. Not all people born in Aries will exhibit these features for everyone is influenced by other signs as well.

Astrological Elements
Earth: Capricorn, Virgo, Tauros
Fire: Aires, Leo, Sagittarius
Water: Cancer, Scorpio, Pieces
Air: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius

Other Notable Constellations:
I may do some of these in the future
Ursa Major and Ursa Minor
Canis Major and Canis Minor
Cygnus (done) [link]

About This Piece
This was done in front of a live audience yesterday- and boy did we all have fun! Some were able to watch the color pencil layering process from beginning to end! 30 some layers later, it was done :D thanks to everyone who tuned in and participated. I had a blast sharing the color pencil layering technique with you all- and I hope to do it again sometime!
Thanks Guys! :heart:
