Aries by DavidStrife Aries by DavidStrife
My entry for the Anthro Weekly Challenge: Zodiac Theme.

---

Why we can call him Aries?

- He's a ram.
- He has got the Aries symbol in his forehead.
- The wings and skin represents the flying ram of the Golden Fleece. Aries symbol is based on this myth.
- The horned shield with the bull head makes reference to the Minotaur killed by Theseus (his figure was also a ram).
- Aries numbers are 3 and 5. He has got 3 "necklaces" with 5 amethyst each one. The amethyst is the Starstone of Aries.
- He has got also the complete Aries constellation in the chest.
- Aries is a Fire Element sign, it represents energy, strength and fortitude. The planet Mars rules over this sign. Mars is the roman god of the war. That's why he's a warrior with roman suit and weapons (Gladius).
- Dragon tail. The chinese sign "Dragon" is the equivalent of Aries.
- Aries metals are bronze and gold, the materials of the weapon and shield.
- Aries colors are red, black and white. I used them for the suit.

I think that's all...

Tienes razón, a mi también me gusta la idea de poder crear este tipo de criaturas. Tal vez seria buena idea la de dibujar los otros 11 signos del zodiaco. Yo intento hacer en mis dibujos recientes una recopilación de todos los tipos de criatura existentes en la mitología y el arte fantástico pero me doy cuenta de que dicha tarea es titánica pues son cientos o miles de tipos de criatura.

Woah, I'm an Aries and that description is freaky! My favourite numbers include 3 and 5, I bought an amethist bracelet because I just liked it and felt "drawn" to the stone and fire is my fave element (out of the 4: wind, water, fire and earth)
