Members of this sign are emotional creatures. However, their true emotions can be hidden behind their hard outer shells. They are soft creatures and insensible and unkind words can make them confused. </span>
So this was the second sign I drew, and to which I drew before Gemini. I originally drew her for lightsideofyourdark
as a belated, can't even call it a bday card anymore. Anyway! She was also one of the earlier few that I did the background for as well. This one is rather unique compared to the other zodiacs I did because of the dress. Since Cancer is symbolised by the crab, I have to picture the crab somewhere, and well, drawing the crab itself is not something I can do well, perhaps (I have never tried), I opted for including it in the dress. Also her headdress is notably, very sea worthy, full of shells. Her expression I wonder, sometimes, if perhaps it conveys the right attitude of a Cancerian.
As for the hard part, that was putting together a background. I have a habit of combining many many many different types of brushes and effects together, with the hope that the final result will look good! Now, I totally understand how people feel about their brushes being used by other people soooo below is a list and links of all (most since I can't find the original links of a few of the brushes I've used - therefore if you see your brushes in my work, let me know! I'll credit you - sorry in advance) of the brushes that I've used. They're great brushes!
