Elemental: Air v02 by arlejerlutos Elemental: Air v02 by arlejerlutos
About Air:

A feathery-light creature that drifts from realm to realm, carrying the very essence of life.

It walks beside Fate on sunny days,
Listens to Time’s never ending stories on rainy days.
To Water’s music it sways,
Tiptoeing into Fire’s lair with much care,
(taking bits of fabric here and there)
Watching Earth paint from behind,
( or sipping whatever wine it finds).

-----------
Tech details :
- sketched in pencil
- inked with 0.1 pigment liner
- copic markers + water colour pencils

The colors in this scan turned out pretty good. :D

This rocks my head off.
It is actually different to this "always-the-same"-style and i like it.
She/He is so fantastically thin.

This and the rest of your drawings is really excellent - it's totally different from what I usually find on DA and it's really beautiful. And it reminds me of my favourite childhood books' illustrator Jan Marcin Szancer who used to draw like noone else in the world but your drawings remind me of his artwork a bit :)

Vibrant and fluid are two words that come to mind- as mentioned before, looks very Suessian. A definite Fav.

This is truly a beautiful and unique work of art. The designs on her dress look very eye-catchy. ^^ And yellow! Yellow is my favourite colour... Do you have this in a print? I terribly want to buy it and hang it up on my soon-to-be-yellow wall. I want something that matches the rest of my room... I think it would look awesome on a wall. I love it. :+fav: I love it that much. Great job! Keep up the spectacular work!

I am terribly partial to the element air. :giggle:

This is gorgeous! I am so happy you did it with traditional art techniques, even! :D I like the winsome little poem too! It's a real break with "tradition" do to air in those firey colors but it works. :)

Heh, I'm more of a Earth fan. :lol: Air is really fun to do, though - it leaves more space for imagination .

Air can be "hot" (fiery?) too. Air reminds me of white light sometimes,which is made up of a few different colors.

I've also :+fav:'d two of your other Elementals, but this is the one that first caught my eye. The movement you depict is stunning, and I completely adore the personality you gave her, and the lines you used in the drawing. And, of course, the colours are wonderful. Very nicely done!

i think i like this one best of all the elementals- the graceful form and the impression of movement really add a lot to the picture. you have such a great style, so flowing. the only thing that worries me is the white hightlight that takes up most of her arm....whats up with that?
