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.

Air erodes Earth; Air suffocates Fire; Air manipulates Water.
