ROUND #232:: The Zodiac Warrior
The Zodiac Warrior
For ages a war has been going on between 12 different tribes, all of them empowered by a different starsign. The Zodiac Wars have been the stage of many famous powerful warriors and mages, yet none of them powerful enough to overcome the others. Which starsign channels the most power? Who will end the Zodiac Wars?
Design the strongest Zodiac Warrior!
- Can be male or female
- Setting, timeframe, style; completely open!
- Starsigns must be based on the western system: aries, pisces, libra etc. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astrological_sign
- Signs should show in the design, either in symbols and colors or literal references.
- This is the warrior capable of winning the war, so (s)he must look impressive!

Man, SO many great entries this time around! I was honestly discouraged to continue with mine a couple of times because it looks like crap compared to so many of the other entries. Alas I am very happy I completed it, I learned a lot in the process; thank you CHOW for making me a much better artist than I was before I discovered you!

Go, Libra warrior, go!
I know, that "action shot" could have used a bit more "love", but - big exam due this Wednesday, so...yup.
Great round, guys. Whip out some popcorn and enjoy the show!
Edit - One day extension, woohoo! Poured some "extra lovin`" into it afterall

The Capricorn recently became the mightiest of all the Zodiac Warriors after the defeat of the Leo, who apparently was skewered after calling the Capricorn a "jelly-bellied, tutu-wearing goat lover". Capricorn doesn't deny these accusations, but says he "didn't appreciate the spiteful tone".
The champion claims he gets his massive powers from drinking nothing but goat milk, and carries a bottle with him wherever he goes.

Capricorn demon summoner is ready for combat!
Ready to smite Libra, crush Scorpio, eviscerate Sagittarius, seriously injure Aquarius, fish-slap Pisces, insult Aries, snub Taurus, TP Gemini's, Cancer's and Leo's house, and make lewd and totally inappropriate jokes about virgo!
Now to quietly back off...
I can only hope I get to vote many, many times since there's so many concepts I've seen that totally rock! You guys know how to inspire!

Wow, there are some stunning characters here. Its a pleasure to see all your great work and design development. I had lots of fun, here is my Capricorn.
Wow, crazy good entries this week
Here's my take on Gemini:
The Gemini twins in Greek and Roman mythology were known as Castor and Pollux. While Pollux was immortal, Castor was not. My little twist was that through their breath (since the element of this zodiac is air) they are able to pass this immortality back and forth between themselves, thus making them unstoppable if they were to fight back to back.

Wow. So much high quality work. Sad I couldn't give feedback, barely had enough time to squeeze this in. Humbling. Good luck everyone!
Time for more studies!

You know its done when you stare at it for 15mins and can't think of anything else to do to it. This is done.
Virgo, my sign, with a helluva chastity belt.
