The Elemental by EmmaEsme The Elemental by EmmaEsme
All the elements together.

Water Extinguishes Fire;
Fire Entraps Air;
Air Encompasses Earth;
Earth is the Mother of all...

12/10/11- UPDATE! Thanks to my absolutely wonderful hubby who saved everything on my harddrive, there is now a higher resolution version of this image available. This is also now available as a print! (The deviation itself will not be the highest resolution.)

7/29/10- I just wanted to put a big thank you to everyone that is/has favourited this deviation. I don't know how, but today I logged on and it had over 50... O_O Just between yesterday and now. I'm so glad so many like it, and it continues to be such an enjoyable piece of work. Thank you all. <3

I really love these designs. Make me want to print them so I can laminate them to make individual book marks.

I'm in the planning stage of a story wherein the alchemical elements, and how they rock-paper-scissor one another, is a plot point. Water extinguishing Fire is a no-brainer ("I'm melting! I'm melting!"), plus Fire having it over Air, whose oxygen feeds it. But as for how Earth and Water fit in? I was thinking that maybe Air erodes Earth, while Earth absorbs Water. What do you think?

Water can also crash through and destroy Earth. It can work many ways. I suggest a read through some of the older comments here at a glance, some people have commented other options to my text accompanying this peice. It also depends on if you want to have each element have a relation to just one other (like in my text) or all of them to each other.

Hi Moomba2,
I love The Elemental and would like to use it as cover art for one of the books published by my small book publishing company. I sent you an email via deviantart, but haven't heard back from you. My publishing company is Anomalist Books. Hope to get your permission.

"Earth drains water"

I really just came up with the comment on this out of nowhere, and didn't put too much thought in it at the time. I was just thinking of "mother earth" for that one. Though, in my opinion now that Ive seen so many interpretations for it, water is much stronger then earth. I don't think it would be drained by it. If anything water would transform earth.

Water definitely rules, (it's my element :P), but it would make a nice circle if you'd say that, would'n't it? The elements should keep eachother in balance: if one of the four would be stronger, it would destroy/absorb/whatever the others. As result everything would be turned into water and the other elements would disappear..

Just another comment out of nowhere ^^' XD
