Originally, I wanted this illustration to be a frozen water fountain for a Christmas zodiac themed card. But when I did the illustration in Illustrator I hadn't thought about the water. It was later pointed to me that it didn't look like water and it was suggested I should change it to look more water like. So when I put it in Photoshop to add colour I took away what was meant to be water. Then using the pen tool and different stroke settings including profile, cap and dashed line I was able to create what looks like flowing water being sprayed from the fountain.
I also cut halve of the fountain away and then copy it and switch it to the other side so when I put in place the fountain was symmetrical.
