Chinese Zodiac Hybrid

After discovering my four Chinese zodiacs (year, month, day, hour), I wanted to make a hybrid based on these four signs. I haven’t seen anyone who’s done it yet. Anyway, I’m not 100% sure if this will be my final design. The feathers are really bothering me…

I originally intended for it to remain a sketch, which is why I used the following pic for reference: www.fileguru.com/images/b/hors… I really need to practice horse anatomy... ^^;

How to make a zodiac hybrid of your own (or if you just want to find out what your four signs are):

1. Go to this site: www.astro-fengshui.com/4P%20Ch…
2. Write your name and put in your birth date, timezone etc. (example: i133.photobucket.com/albums/q4…)
3. To find your longitude, go to this site: itouchmap.com/latlong.html (example: i133.photobucket.com/albums/q4…)
4. Click Compute, and only pay attention to the following rows: i133.photobucket.com/albums/q4…

5. Looking at my example, you’ll see that my signs are:
- Year: Metal horse
- Month: Wood rooster
- Day: Earth tiger
- Hour: Fire dragon

6. Now that you know what your signs are, you need to know what each element’s color is:
- Metal = white
- Water = black
- Wood = green
- Fire = red
- Earth = yellow

7. Now you’re able to start sketching ideas for your creature. Play around! The year and hour signs are the most important signs, but that doesn’t mean that you have to make them the most prominent ones. You’ll need to pay attention to the colors/elements. I have all but black to choose from as a dominant color, but I can incorporate black stripes if I want to because of the tiger sign, so it all depends on the animals that you have. This is not a contest (not yet, at least). I’m just curious as to what you guys could come up with. :3

Recap:
- Your mash-up must consist of at least two signs (obviously).
- You can add whatever colors you want, but the dominant color(s) must be at least one of your element colors.
- If you want, you could have the head be one sign, the upper body another sign etc., or you could just go wild.

Earth's color is actually yellow, but brown is acceptable, and is easy to miss that one out.

Dude this is amazing. I'd like to make one myself, as I've been wanting to do a hybrid but have had no ideas as to what animals I want to use. XD This is pretty good~! And I love your drawing, it's beautiful, a really perfect combination of the animals and colors you described. :D If I post something similar on here, I'll be sure to credit you for the instructions and the beautiful work. :)

Aww, thank you so much~! Whoops... I just realized that some of my links don't work. Gonna have to fix that, hahah! Giving credit is not a requirement in this case, which is why it's always so nice to see people doing it anyway, so thanks a lot! :3

Ah ha, sorry about that. I decided to remove all of my original art and only leave up art for others. Here's the link :meow: fc08.deviantart.net/fs70/i/201... I had goat, ox, horse, and snake.
