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
Orion
Ursa Major and Ursa Minor
Canis Major and Canis Minor
Cygnus (done) [link]
Pegasus
Andromeda
Cassiopeia

Orignal Mythological Creatures
Terra Delta (Ruled By Earth) [link]
Capricornus Aljeti (Ruled by Saturn) [link]
Aries Sheratan (Ruled by Mars)

About This Piece
This was done in front of a live ustream.com 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:

Great lighting and shading, and nice powerful pose! I'm particularly impressed with the accurate anatomy.

Haha, I'm an Aries myself, but personality-wise I'm the polar opposite of any normal Aries. :XD: Then again, I was born a few weeks early and was actually supposed to be a Taurus!

Lookin' great! I must say, I adore your coloured pencil colouring... all this 'hidden' hues, like the green and stuff. :)
However, have you heard of tangents? You know, where two things are practically parallel, and the lines are connected and everything? It's happening... *points* on the front legs with the 'knees'. Tangents can make things kinda stiffer and harder to read. Thought I'd mention it.
ANYways, I really like this one!

Yeah I noticed that. I actually had the knee on the front left leg (the one that is bent) up a little higher than the one behind it, but i think it was so close that when I went to take black colored pencil over the outline, it somehow got messed up ^^; Definitely something I will be paying more attention to in the future :thumbsup: :hug: and thank ya!

Very awesome coloring, but the torso came out a little to short and it sort of makes the ram look bloated. Otherwise its really good! =]

Ima n Aries and my fiance is a Leo, both fire signs. The funniest part is: many Twilight fans remark on his treatment of me and the facet he is a LION in love with a LAMB.
Personally I dislike the series but we found it funny that the tagline fits. hahaha
