I have a lot of thank yous today, but I will try not to make this sound like an Oscar acceptance speech.

First of all, thank you to :iconartnouveau: for featuring  The Rising of the Sun and the Running of the Deer as their Deviation of the Week. This has consistently been one of my favorite groups here on DeviantArt, one that I look to for inspiration constantly. It really meant so much to me, so thank you :iconbit-sinna: and company.

Also, thank you to all those who have favorited and commented in the past few weeks. I have taken on a lot of hours at the restaurant and haven't been able to reply nearly as much as I would like to, but just know that I feel so much gratitude toward those who take the time to look at what I do and share their thoughts :heart:

Year of the Goat by RoseCarballeira
Year of the Goat
This year is my fourth year doing a Chinese Zodiac painting. Look at me with the goals and the deadlines, shit.

It was a real struggle getting this one to work, very mentally draining and time consuming. It was all about striking the balance between the Chinese symbolism and the very ingrained Western goat/sheep figures such as Aries. I'm ultimately feel that I made it work.

Last Year: Year of the Horse
Year of the Horse (Color) by RoseCarballeira

Every year that I do these Zodiac drawings I get to look back and see how my style has evolved. I've made a lot of changes this year.

Thanks to :iconkuoma-stock: for the reference:

XI by RoseCarballeira
XI
Dust is not a constant. There's not a fixed quantity that has always been the same. Conscious beings make Dust, they renew it all the time, by thinking and feeling and reflecting, by gaining wisdom and passing it on."
-Philip Pullman

So this took me months.

I love the mystery of medieval Tarot cards and alchemical illustrations. That was what I wanted to explore. The numerals refer to the cards in the Major Arcana that I was most inspired by.

Thanks to :iconfaestock: for the pose reference!
