Zodiac clock by black-chips Zodiac clock by black-chips
An assignment for art class in school. It's the zodiac as a watch in steampunk style. It's made with aquarelle on a paper that's about 49 cm in diameter.

You know, in the end I was so sick of it xD I think I've been working on it for at least 30 hours...haven't count it thou. But keep in mind that I'm really slow when it comes to painting and I'm ridiculously finicky 8)

I've also made a speed up video that you can watch right here: [link]
I'm actually quite proud of myself atm ^__^

I kind of surprised myself over the fact that I even got the idea of making a watch out of it. Turned out to be pretty cool :D

...and you say 30 hours like it's a LONG time x_____x
Achieving this in that amount of time requiers some insanity, ...or perhaps magic, I'm not quite sure yet. Cx

Really cool you made it into a working clock aswell ^-^
....like as if there wasn't reasons enough to put it on the wall already, geez ;D

haha okay:iconokayguyplz:, 30 hours might not be that long time. x']
Actually now that I think of it, it's impossibru for me to have finished that thing in 30 hours.. oh god x__x mind blown..better not think about it too much C'8

I remember when I got the idea, I was spassing all over the place and was all hyperactive :nuu:
hahahh, Oooh you! ಥ◡ಥ

oh noes, please dont get me wrong!xox 'xD I didn't mean like you didn't put enough time in it, what I meant was that I was utterly amazed by the work, then mindblown to find out that it only took that long. I'mean, if I'd attempt something like that it would take a lifetime, and still I wouldn't come close!! x'D
It was just meant as a compliment, albeit perhaps a clumsy one.

Same with the last sentence aswell, I meant that It would look super-awesome on the wall already, but now when you made it to a clock too, it became even awesome-er..er? *inventin' words* 8D x'D

I guess much of the clearness gets lost when it's in written form, without tone of voice and so, sorry if you got offended in any way ToT

OR you might just got it fine, and I'm perhaps just confused atm. That wouldn't be the first time for me xD

No worries! :3
I didn't get offended at all, and yeah, I kind of got it x''D

I just thought about it and came to a conclusion that 30 hours is way to impossible for me to have finished that 8D Now that I think of it, maybe 1/3 took about 30 hours xD

You're right about that, there are a lot of misunderstandings when writing instead of speaking >__<
but no harm made :meow:
And thank you for all the kind words! It makes me truly happy :hug:

Ah, thank goodness Cx
last thing I wanted was to sound rude in any way xD

Yeah, as you said in your previous message, sometimes its better not to think back and count the hours xD But aslong as its been fun, and the end result is good, its totally worth it imo! x3 I've put myself up against such big projects myself, for better, for worse, but in the end its always worth the work you put into it c:
Yours is a great example of that ^w^

I'll try to be less cryptic next time, and your work deserves any kind words I can think of! C8
I'll stop filling your comments page with walls of text nao x'D

It just feels like a lot of time has gone lost on something pointless (even thou it's not really pointless C'8 )
But you're right, sometimes it's really worth it! As long as oneself is happy with the result and has accomplished something :3
Then we both now how much suffering those kind of big projects can cause x'D And the second it's done is like being in heaven, free from the evil wrath of those taking-up-all-of-your-time-projects x_x

haha oops 8D
we sure have a hard time shortening our messages .__.
But you don't have to answer! xD
