Capricorn with orange by ming85 Capricorn with orange by ming85
EDIT: I made a little tutorial about this, on composition: [link]

Another piece for our Artcake illustrationbook: [link]

This is my original character Capricorn, a serious, short, asian sword chick with very unpractical horns, wearing a sort of Tibet meets Japan outfit. The facial colouring is very inspired by :iconquestionstar: I love the red that's mixed everywhere. The eyes are just weird, can't decide what style to do them.

Opencanvas, Photoshop
Character © me.

and NO i'm not gonna do pinups of all the other 11 zodiaks XD this one is special.

Simply gorgeous! The technique used in this really shows.

Your color choices are supreme and unique, the composition flows very nicely, and the interesting blend of different cultures gives it a flavor all its own.

I also like how her fact looks almost goat-like. Ordinarily, this would be bad, but it's quite attractive and appropriate in this case.

Beautiful work!

she is amazing. , she just looks amazing and ethnic. Something about her just went BAM when I seen the icon and I had to click it.She looks like a kick ass comic book/manga character SO FRIGGEN BAD ASS yet wise and feminem. Im dumb struck and sound like a loser but I had to comment/spaz on this.
