Aristotilian Elementals by VegasMike Aristotilian Elementals by VegasMike
This was created for Creature of the Week # 250 at conceptart.org. I wanted to show all the Elements together in an epic scale. Earth is represented by a multi legged Tortoise whose shell is the platform for the other Elements. He is ancient, made of rock, soil and vegetation and must balance the shell for elemental harmony. (Morla from Never Ending Story was a big influence here!) I wanted Fire to be a volcanic predator with an aggressive hell hound look...Whatever he touches is set ablaze and his saliva is pure magma. His breath can set entire cities on fire...He is kept in balance by lady Water. She is a collection of sea life, tentacles, and large ice caps as she goes higher in the atmosphere. She can be as gentle as a drop of water and as furious as a tsunami. The steam created by lady Water keeping Fire in check eventually forms the elegant and deady lady Air. She can be invisible at times, felt only as a soft breeze or she can gain strength and become a furious thunder storm. She is represented by an angelic, faceless bird made up of clouds. Her purpose is to oversee that Fire and Water are also kept in balance.

Very good picture indeed. The clouds above must represent the element of air, the giant tortoise must represent earth, the demon on the left fire, and the sea snake water.

A great representation of the four elements, you give each of them a fitting place and look. Earth and air may be overrepresented, but that's only a natural reflection of the earth. I do feel that Air lacks the detail that you gave the other elements, even if air is something vague and invisible.
