The Ouroboros is an ancient symbol depicting a serpent or dragon swallowing its own tail and forming a circle. It has been used to represent many things over the ages, but it most generally symbolizes ideas of cyclicality, unity, or infinity. The ouroboros has been important in religious and mythological symbolism, but has also been frequently used in alchemical illustrations. More recently, it has been interpreted by psychologists, such as Carl Jung, as having an archetypical significance to the human psyche.

Me acuerdo d haber leído algo x el estilo en un libro sobre "el amuleto de Merlín" q tenia grabado ese símbolo y q supuesta mente representaba el paso x las estaciones o algo así ^^;

Te quedó muy bien *-* Me encanta el pelo, y el coloreado rayadito... Y la pose también está buena, aunque tiene el cuello muy largo para la forma humana que le hiciste, pero no queda tan mal :P

mmm delicious shading, I must eat it. I love how you did the tail and bits of blood, and nice text usage for the background... (and i thought there WAS a horror/macabre section in digital?..)

Darn it, you've inspired me for some kind of accessory (aw come on, an ouroboros belt sounds really awesome!)
This is also a very cool drawing, an a nice spin on the theme. It's also nice to see Zoe again, in all her bloody glory.
I don't know why either. Kinda stinks that. Stupid DA!

You should draw this Zoe more often, what a brilliant colour scheme. I could look at this forever!! XD

..But...Just like Full Metal Alchemist...She needs a tatoo somewhere on her body XD

And my lame excuse to draw blood and "morbid" stuff :P

Actually... she does have a tattoo, but not of ouroboros heh.
