Another one of my Zodiac characters. This is Pisces depicted as a siren. Painted with Corel Painter 12 using mostly the Oils, Pastels, Palette Knives and Blender brushes along with some custom papers for texture. Thanks for viewing.

I really love this. It's just so pretty. If you do redo it, I'd think it be cool if you did two tails or something to represent that there's two fish. But either way, your work is amazing :)

I'm a Pisces and I had to come to your DA page just to let you know. I loved this so much. I don't care how many other Pisces are telling you to change it to two sirens. I think it's amazing. It really depicts the fragile nature of our sign. We are very sensitive and are very in touch with our emotions. Since our sign doesn't have a shell like other water signs we are more open and easily hurt. Just because our sign has two fish does not mean there is two of us. It simply means our personality has two sides always counteracting against the other. We can be beautiful and frightening and fragile and strong. Which I think you depicted perfectly. I love this piece! Keep it up!

Thanks kfedthepirate! I didn't mean to cause so much unrest with some of these depictions :)  I was mostly having fun imagining them as human/animal mutant hybrids. That'll teach me! Anyway, thanks for the comments!

No one is having an issue with you depicting anything as a human/animal hybrid, the only issue people have is that certain zodiacs are misrepresented as one thing when they're clearly another. For example, as I mentioned in a comment below, Pisces is plural, not singular, and is not a siren/mermaid. Pisces are two fish tied together at the tail. If perhaps the above was only one half of Pisces that'd be a different issue altogether because one of the fish is female, the other being male. Where's the other half of Pisces?

You represented just about all the other ones just fine, you even gave Gemini two heads because they're obviously twins.

And what about misrepresenting Aquarius? Aquarius is an air sign, not a water sign. If it were associated with any animal, it would be associated with birds, not an octopus, because Zeus turned into an eagle when he fell in love with Ganymede and took him away to serve him wine. When Ganymede no longer wanted to pour wine for the god, he poured wine and water for Zeus, which caused a flood. Rather than becoming angry with the boy he had come to love, he instead gave him immortality and the constellation, Aquarius. Even though it's symbol is water, it's actually an air sign, because he's not the water, but carries the water. It's only because he caused a flood that he's associated with water while being an air sign.

It's stupid how people get so offended by a picture! No problem! :)

It's beautiful, but this is NOT Pisces. Pisces are two fish tied at the tail by a string, not a starving mermaid. Unless she ate the other "fish"? Being Pisces myself, this doesn't make any sense to me. When did the two fish ever become a siren?

Imagine it as two opposing beings, the 'fish' if you like, bound together into one personality, one being. That's Pisces, and that's this.

That's not Pisces. It isn't some metaphor for a split personality. It's, quite plainly, two fish, a male (the son) and a female (the mother), each tied to one another by the tail, neither of which are opposing. The above is not a fish, he clearly states that it's a siren, that being a mermaid, and she's female, singular.

This is not Pisces, it's just a starving mermaid.

To each is own, it may not be a Pisces to you but it is to me and I never liked that whole mother/son thing, I'm a Pisces and I rather be thought of as a unique mermaid than some joint mother/son situation. lol though :)

I love how you made her beautiful but at the same time kind of twisted (no pun intended). 

I can picture her having one of those etheral voices where you can't tell what gender it's supposed to be, which would make it ll the more surreal

Amazing artwork!! Love how the tail entwines and have the infinity loop effect at te end.
Could probably use another livelier almost perfect "angelic looking" twin accompanying this morbid and creepy siren, probably sitting upright on the waist area with her body facing the background and head facing south east of the pic looking down towards the water.
That would do a good justice to this already perfect pisces rendition you created!

Thanks fadpug! My next version of Pisces will definitely have 2 sirens.
