Terrifying Zodiac Signs

The 12 Zodiac signs drawn as terrifying monsters by Damon Hellandbrand.

His current process for creating art is as follows:

  1. Think of something cool to draw.
  2. Scribble several quick thumbnail sketches and choose the once which best represents the germ of an idea swirling around my mind’s eye.
  3. Begin sketching with purpose and flesh out the idea only to realize it’s not working.
  4. Repeat step 2. and settle upon a new direction.
  5. Again, back to fleshing out the illustration using pencil, watercolor, acrylics, charcoal…basically whatever medium I’m in the mood for.
  6. The last step is to import the illustration into Corel Painter to further explore it’s potential.
