Well I fully intended on doing a lot of other things today, but I got completely swept up in finishing this design over the last few days. xD That said, I am super proud of it. :'D

This is Perseus! He's the zodiac companion to Aries, and if it looks like he's staring into your soul a bit, that's kind of the point, aha. In mythology, Perseus was a famed hero who killed monsters like Medusa and Cetus, so I thought it would be interesting if this new incarnation of the character (especially a younger one) adopted the traits of the monsters. He can't turn people to stone, but the focus on his eyes was intentional as an homage to this idea. He's a bit misunderstood, however, and prefers to fight for good rather than evil.

    I've been dead for awhile and decided to come back for the fun of it and noticed that your art is just as beautiful as I had left it! Keep up the stellar (heheh) work!
