The Zodiacs: Pisces

The Fish Zodiac

And were’s finally almost done with the Zodaic series! Along with Capricorn I didn’t want to just focus on the animal element of this zodiac, sure, they’re associated with fish, but there’s so much more to them than that. Especially since they’re noted to be a very artistically inclined sign, so I wanted to capture that in my look.

Now all I have left to do is my sign, Taurus

My idea for this look was to take inspiration from Koi fish, especially the ones with the beautiful large flamboyant tails. I keept to using blues and turquoises but added a bit of gold (which of course I forgot to add on my left eye) and a few rhinestones. I can’t really include rhinestones or sequins in my Taurus look so this week is my last chance to go a little bit crazy with the bling.

The Zodiacs Pisces

You might think that Pisces is a little bit too much of a relaxed sign to use black lipstick, but to me black is a very calm colour. It says, to quote Yohji Yamamoto: “Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy — but mysterious. But above all black says this: I don’t bother you — don’t bother me.”

Pisces is more than a fish

Oh, and I have some exciting news…

Today I also have to mention (if you haven’t heard already) that Outsider is being made into a comic book series! :D We can’t share the website quite yet, there are still a few minor details we need to sort out, but come October 13th you’ll get to see the website and the first pages. You can follow the official face book page here, and as soon as the website is live you’ll be the first to know about it.

Once the website launches we will be uploading a new page twice a week. So a lot of new new work, new material and new art work, but honestly, it’s going to be amazing! We will be showing the backstory of so many new characters and exploring the world of Ammasteinn even more than in the books. Plus I can’t wait for you to all see the artwork, we’ve done something slightly different with how the pages are coloured in and I think you’re going to love it!

I hope you like the tutorial :)
