Nature's Elements and how they connect us
I was talking with a friend the other day and we were touching the topic of the four elements of nature which are Earth, Air, Fire, Water. And we started connecting it to life and creating a giant circle. Anyway, in our chat I became inspired in how he explained the elements and I wanted to turn that explanation into an illustration of some sort. The drawing above is the result. I will be adding the final colored drawing some time this week, but for now enjoy the rough. The idea is that Fire breaths Air, Air breath water, water breaths earth, and earth creates life which is the heart of the person and where the circle connects back in full. I try to show the circle through morphing each element from flam to fluttering leaves in the wind, to water and vines wrapping around the human form.
