The Signs And Their Mystical Pets

Aries: Panther with fur made of actual fire, eyes black as coal. Teeth drip with lava. Can swim through lava and walk through molten earth with no problems.

Taurus: A raven large enough to fly on, matte black feathers and cold, dull purple eyes. leaves a trail of smoke when it flies.

Gemini: A white tiger with dark black stripes. silver claws and teeth that can bite/cut through any material. A roar so powerful the earth shakes. A tail almost as long as it’s main body.

Cancer: An elk with antlers made of ice. Icicles sharp sharp enough to kill drip down from them. Eyes that reflect the ocean. Fur that is as cold as snow. When it walks on water it freezes the surface.

Leo: A lion actually made of earth. It’s fur is like grass, and it’s eyes reflect the sun itself. Wherever it goes, it spreads life. It’s mane sometimes sprouts wildflowers.

Virgo: A bear made of the night sky. It’s fur contains constellations and planets. It’s eyes are stars themselves. It is a peaceful, loving creature-until one of it’s loved ones are hurt. If that occurs, they have claws sharp enough to rip through rock.

Libra: A giant bird with transparent feathers that reflect it’s environment. Eyes that glow red. when it lands, it levels out the ground beneath it.

Scorpio: A lioness made of shadow. It lurks in caves, afraid to be seen. Poison runs through it’s veins, deadly enough to kill by contact. large canines, and claws.

Sagittarius: A wolf that can outrun the wind. pure white fur and deep, sea blue eyes. Long, jet black claws and teeth. Spends most of it’s life fleeing, not fighting.

Capricorn: A creature with no defined shape nor species. Constantly turns from one to the next. They are identified with a scar, an X across their chest, that they contain in every form. iridescent fur/scales/skin.

Aquarius: A large, dragon-like lizard with matte black scales. Eats rocks, and breathes out fire and smoke. Spits up lava over it’s enemies. Creates deserts.

Pisces: A large ice dragon with scales comprised of sea ice, to resemble icicles, scales are almost clearer than glass. Lives in arctic waters. Breathes super-cold breath to create more ice. It’s wings glisten in the sky due to the little pieces of snow, it can be blinding. Very loyal to its master.

Transparents - How I do it

First up: I hate the eraser tool for this. Don’t touch it for transparents.

Ok listen up y’all! Transparents are awesome stuff. I’ve got my own way on doing transparents, but I want to share my techniques (do I sound smart enough yet) with pretty much everyone who wants to see because I kinda dislike most tutorials I’ve seen on here.
This is a Photoshop-based tutorial, I use CS4. Any PS above that works too, not too sure about other programs though.

If you have any questions feel free to send me a message. Or if you want a video tutorial, idk.

My first reaction when random generator chooses this winner was “Oh what a pretty character!”
Than i realized all the things such as feathers and transparent cutiemark… 
When i finally sculpted this (i had to use harder clay as usual because they didn’t had right color of soft acrylic clay) my hands rly hurter :D 
But to the statue : it has old blanket because reference says that sometimes she wears old blanket outside… and today started to snow so why not.
Also, it has false eyelashes… i spent 20 minutes pasting them with my shaky hands to the eyes .. result is not perfect at all but whatever :D
