Photomanipulation Contest - Zodiac

Journal Entry: Sun Jun 12, 2016, 6:55 PM
Hi, everyone! :wave:

So, it's time for another photomanip contest! :eager:

The theme of this one is the zodiac. It is one often used; however, rather than just focusing on the star zodiac (Aries, Capricorn, Aquarius, etc.), I thought it would be interesting to incorporate other types of zodiacs. I have found pages that give information on some of the more well-known ones (however, you are welcome to dig as deep as you'd like and go further than the ones shown below):

Astrological zodiac:…
Celtic Tree:…
Egyptian zodiac:…

You are welcome to incorporate more than one zodiac into your entry (in fact, you're encouraged to!).
For example, I'm an Aquarius, born in the Year of the Dragon, and my Celtic Tree is Rowan - I could use all of those elements if I wished. Feel free to use less or more!

Contest Details
:bulletpurple: Theme: Zodiac
:bulletpurple: Run time: June 12 - October 12
:bulletpurple: Your entry must be brand new and created specifically for this contest.
:bulletpurple: You will be judged heavily on creativity and on how well you fit the theme.
:bulletpurple: All stock must be legitimate and properly credited.
:bulletpurple: Submit your work to your gallery, include the link to this journal in the artist comment box, and send your entry via note.

:star: Prizes :star:
