fantasy version of gemini
from the zodiacness project i'm doing with my friends
haxelo and itemilicious

gemini needed to have animals like my previous drawings of capricorn and pisces (felt weird without one) so off i went to research~

and discovered the Feng Huang - "Dragon and Phoenix infants" (龍鳳胎) is an expression meaning a set of male and female fraternal twins. <-- more modern meaning

Fenghuang (Chinese: 鳳凰; pinyin: fènghuáng) are mythological birds of East Asia that reign over all other birds. The males are called Feng and the females Huang. In modern times, however, such a distinction of gender is often no longer made and the Feng and Huang are blurred into a single feminine entity so that the bird can be paired with the Chinese dragon, which has male connotations.

so thats why the dragon-phoenix became incorporated with the gemini twins of zodiacness (and boy was it hard to draw all that on A4 =.=')

capricorn
pisces

feel free to color any of the above as long as you link back to the original sketch or the zodiacness group on DA

    Your sketches, like this one, truly illustrate your remarkable drawing skill. I would like to see this in black ink or dark pencil so your exquisite lines would stand out even more. Thanks for the extensive description and for sharing your artwork here.

    I usually butcher my drawings when I try lining etc OTL I find only my pencil sketches look nice
    And I don't think I'm good with darker lead either if they aren't mechanical pencil lead ^^'
