And heeere's the rooster.

I think I like this one the best so far :]

Watercolor, gold and black ink, and white gelpen on watercolor paper, 4.5 x 6 in.

Again, if you'd like to buy the original it's $20. There'll be prints of this and the others at A-kon this year, probably around $5.

very good collection you got here! although i think it should say 鸡 not 酉, 酉鸡 itself is a phrase though :)

All of your work is absolutely gorgeous. Just wanted to point out the character on this is wrong. 酉 is the tenth earthly branch. Chicken/rooster is 鸡。 Love the colors, especially for the goat. :)

Aaaah, oh no D:
I saw that character for the rooster zodiac when I looked it up. Any chance it could still mean... year of the rooster or something? I feel really dumb now D:

the rooster is associated with it, as it is part of he earthly branches(used to tell time)more info at wiki: [link]

Ah. Well at least I wasn't COMPLETELY off. It'd be really embarrassing if I'd accidentally written the character for some random, unrelated word xDDD

Nice colors on this one! I like that you didn't use traditional rooster colors, like red and yellow and orange.

This is the prettiest rooster I've ever seen in the zodiac, I'm a horse but I'm sure I wouldn't mind being a rooster if they were all as pretty as this in the depictions C:

Yay! I always used to dislike being a rooster since they always looked so lame and ugly :<
But you've made it look so pretty! I love all the curls on it <3
