Unsure if you know about this, but someone seems to have traced over this image and so far as I can see, isn't giving you credit.

This is my favorite of the Zodiacs. Unlike a lot of comments I've read, I feel it's utter inanity is terrifying. I was disturbed slightly by the sight of the horse head. Almost defeating the purpose of a half-man-half-horse. But at the same time I thought it was genius. Removing the some of the human aspect with the horse head is part of what I find disturbing about it. The terror of inanity continues as you notice the what you might assume to be the horse-half bucking, but it's on two legs like a human. What if this version of Sagittarius doesn't walk on those four hoofed legs, he walks "upright" and the fore legs just hang there.  It's a man-horse trying to be a horse-man.

Thanks so much - I appreciate your feedback! Art is truly subjective so I take the good and bad comments all in stride :)

I'll also add that this also helps me understand better what I liked about Yoshitaka Amanos' work when I was a kid. It's slightly disturbing. slightly insane. But not outside the realms of possibility or within the realms of intemperance. I'm impressed by your creative approach.

I love how the buckles are prominent throughout the design, INCLUDING THE BOW. That;s one of the coolest bows I've ever seen in a fantasy drawing

I like the idea of using the horse head, its looks really original... but its doesn't look that scary compare to the other zodiac...
Since all the character concept for the Zodiac sign looks so demon like or monster that live in hell... This Sagittarius looks pretty tamed.
In my opinion, maybe using horse head skull might do the tricks... (sorry for my bad english)

Thanks Azuregos! I love to problem solve design/concepts and it usually it takes me 3 or 4 times before I land on something I'm happy with. Unfortunately that means I sometimes repost my illustrations with slight adjustments :)
