Additive Monotypes

(Character belongs to Andrew Hussie)
Not my best work. Not as realistic as I would've liked it to be. Oh well.
It was originally a print. Went in with ink and pastel.
The background is actually purple, but my phone turned it blue for some reason...
The letters across his shoulders say "ALMOST HUMAN" because the character, Cronus, doesn't like being a troll; he would rather be human, hence the human skin color coming through the gray troll skin color and the brown hair coming through his troll black hair. 

(Whoever came up with the astrological symbols, well then those belongs to that person)
The background is a print that went really wrong haha, it was SUPPOSED to have the symbols in the print, but the ink was too thick and too dark. 
So I used my ghost pull print which had more visible symbols, colored them with colored pencils according to the color of each sign, and then glued them onto this background.
I arranged the symbols in the orders of the months, going clockwise.
The larger symbol in the middle is the Scorpio symbol - my symbol.
The order, going clockwise: Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces, Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, and Sagittarius, with Scorpio in the middle.
