I've been wanting to do an Elements series for a long time, despite it being a bit unoriginal or cliched, but by the time I actually began working on it, I realized that this wouldn't be a normal "Four Elements" series at all.

Rather than each image being based around one of the four classical elements of earth/water/air/fire, each image is instead based around four -characters-, each represented by one classical element, one Celtic plant, and one animal...

EARTH
Earth represents practicality, stability, constancy, and realism, full of endurance and strength. Though often stubborn and resistant to change, dependability, diligence and a pragmatic, rational, no-nonsense approach to life are among its greatest strengths.

OAK
The oak, as suggested by its impressive expanse, was considered by the Celts to represent life, strength, power, and endurance, honoured and admired for its regal presence. Oak also represents wisdom - there are accounts that trace the name "druid" to "duir," the Celtic term for the oak. More interestingly, the actual translation of duir is "door," and lore indicates the spiritually advanced Celts would access the ethereal planes of higher thought by "opening the oak door."

DRAGON
The dragon, though varying in appearance and symbology across cultures, invariably represents strength and primordial power. Dragon is aloof and solitary by some accounts, and wise and helpful by others, but almost always steeped in magic and imagination.

* * *

The model for this element is my boyfriend, and by his request, a second animal was added.

STAG
The stag represents watchfulness and man's pursuit of spiritual transcendence - the Celts saw the stag as an otherworldy messenger. Stag is also a powerful symbol of nature, fertility, and grace.

* * *

I, unfortunately, do not have a better photo than this blurry one here. The original itself almost did not survive - when I went to apply fixative to the graphite, it soaked into the ink portions and bled everywhere. Thankfully, the damage was limited and I touched it up with a little acyrlic. Moral of the story? Don't use fixative on ink!

~20 hours graphite, kneadable eraser, ink, and a little bit of acrylic on canvas

The Fell Guardian — By Jen Philpot (Jocarra)

The N'allai Wysae-roja, also sometimes called the Black Demon, encompasses the most frightening aspects and villainous mistruths surrounding the One who Holds the Key, and refer specifically to Ash, the bestial assassin created at the Sacrifice of Korah in 230AH. An unnatural, bloodthirsty half-beast by all accounts, it appears in various forms throughout history, all of which are mostly or entirely false, and are the key source of the One's dark infamy. N'allai Wysae-roja translates roughly into "fell guardian" in the Ancient Tongue, describing the beast's nature as chaotic and dire.

Responsible for spurring the desperate attack on the city of Korah, the Wysae-roja was at first seen by the Amiiroans as a manifestation of the growing immorality of their once beloved Empire, an inhuman monstrosity that should never have been created, and which greatly threatened the survival of the resistance. Later, the Fell Guardian became the Black Demon, believed to have been summoned by a corrupt Fergus to aid him in his terrible genocidal acts - many of the terrifying, brutal deaths in the night carried out by the Timora were blamed on the N'allai Wysae-roja.

The descendants of Barrow in the New World largely forgot the name of the beast, knowing it only as a shape-shifting creature of the night, part animal and part man. While varying across cultures and coloured by local folklore, the Wysae-roja persisted as part of the fantastical fiction and superstition that much of the Great War had been reduced to over the millennia following the division of the New World from the Ancient and the subsequent abandonment of magic. However, any connection to stories of mighty empires or magical wars was lost - the Wysae-roja stood as its own frightening legend, described sometimes as a demon, an anomaly of nature, or a victim of a terrible curse. Commonly taking a particularly terrifying half-human, half-animal form that could hide in human disguise under all but the light of a full moon, the beast was seen as frightening for reasons similar to the Amiiroans: the half-human quality of the terrible Wysae-roja seemed to defile Humanity and suggested that a monster may lurk behind any human's eyes, making the beast seem all the more insidious.

Commission for Babyblueyedgal - she asked for a pair of wolf mates with a Cherokee/dreamcatcher theme, so being the literal person I am, I painted the wolves in a dreamcatcher set against what should hopefully resemble the Cherokee foothills.
