This image was drawn in ink with a brush pen and colored digitally; in the background is the Chinese character for the Sheep.
Sometimes, The Goat is used instead of The Sheep, but I felt the sheep matched better with the characteristics associated with the sign. Sheep people are said to be sincere, gentle, empathetic, artistic, and creative. I based my drawing on a wild sheep from Asia, the Markhour, a relative of the Bighorn sheep who looks more like his goat cousins than the fluffy domesticated sheep.
I hope you like it… I’m coloring a bunch more right now!
