Contrary to the criticizm I like the Aquarian depiction. It's very accurate in my opinion to the monsters within Aquarius. Such as the Aries horns are holding his arms back. I like the subtle symbolisms in all the signs depictions, and the slightly untraditional takes on a few.

As Jan 21 is my birthday, I made this image my Cover Photo on my personal facebook page (and I linked back to your work for others to appreciate). I never pictured myself quite as an octopus, but I have been accused of being one on occasion :)
thanks for the tremendous artwork. Please keep it up!

This conception is all about Aquarius, unique and powerful. I always imagined that this sign was about rain, and your picture resembles me of storms. A very windy zodiac indeed haha. Beautiful colors and textures, your style is so pleasant for my eyes.

Seems like this -unique- one of your zodiac signs is the one with most complaints xD Although it looks mighty and godly!
It indeed is not as graceful BUT people don't seem to understand that this entire zodiac cycle is supposed to be creepy. It's MONSTERS after all! Rather silly to see the complaints as "gawd my sign is not as sexyy and badass". This is an abstract concept, an idea, that is really UNIQUE from everything I have seen before.

Fantastic art. Fantastic idea, very creatively executed. Your monstrous creatures are an inspiration :) I love basically every single one of them (though Virgo is... questionable but I will let it pass hehe).
Don't sell yourself and don't let people bend your creativity to their will.

And probably you already got to know that, but Libra.. ... is the king of all the 12 nightmares. Insane.

Love your work!
The zodiac are some of my absolute favourite!
However, as an Aquarius I am rather gutted =[
On its own, it is an amazing piece!
As the representation of Aquarians, its made me a little sad 😔

Thank you for taking suggestions for redos on our zodiac representation. I found you on Facebook and was excited to pop over and check out your art and full zodiac - Aquarius ;). I was intrigued by your concept, then more so when you stated you are Aquarius. Thank you for taking time to review and create another - not a replacement- version. Then, we Aquarians can decide which best represents us for purchase. Yes, if I'm into the new...I want a print.

it has man tits... pretty awesome drawing but didn't like the image of aquarius in my humble opinion, would prefer a buff octupus with mean face at least..

lol this is badass, I am an Aquarius, artistic freedom for the win. I'm not big on Octopuses but Aquarius IS a tough one imo....its not exactly clear cut, cuz although its a Water Bearer, its also very closely associated with the Wind sign....Very very cool though. I think Virgo and Leo are my favourites! These could be awesome uh...models?...for video game characters haha especially Virgo, could be in the next Final Fantasy ;)

u most definately dislike aquarians :( can i suggest a female figure? like ethereal, just so u know, aquarius isnt a water sign at all, its an air sign :). i'd sugest an air spirit condensing into water? or a cloudish figure.. something of sorts. this is perhaps (in my opinion ofc the ugliest representation of the aquarian sign. i loved what u did with virgo.. something of sorts would be a lot more adequate.  btw ur awesome work reached 9gag and 2 signs were cut out, this is one of them (im thinking for a reason) the other one was piscis

I totally agree. I'm a proud Aquarian and this creature doesn't show the grace and beauty of a water sign/air sign.

You did a kick ass on this and if you want to make Aquarius in water then go for it! This is beautiful and I want to buy it or a print if you do that kind of stuff. I'm an Aquarius myself and this picture makes me feel powerful. I would also like to know how much for the Cancer as well?
