Elemental Beasts  
The latest Graffiti contest on Facebook has "Earth, Air, Fire, Water" as its theme. And since I simply couldn't resist, here are my two entries. I can't say I'm banking on winning anything, but it's still fun to participate and put my creativity to the test.

This is my more serious entry. Fire is based on the Greek chimaera, water on the Celtic kelpie, earth on a combination of Herne the Hunter (English, also generally known as the Horned God and a male nature deity) and the giant wolf Fenrir (Norse), and air/wind on the Aztec feathered serpent, Quetzalcoatl.

Elemental Beasts

And here are the little guys (there is a "Cute" category in the contest, after all, so I might as well exploit it). They are named, in order from left to right, Fireball, My Little Kelpie, Airemon, and Spot.

LITTLE Elemental Beasts!

:D Congrats on being the first to comment. Do you know if the dbsg comm has scans for the magazine uploaded? If so, I need to hop over and check it out posthaste. Oh, and yes, I'm going home this weekend because it's a long weekend, but I won't be going home the weekend after that.

As an aside, I want to eat your icon.

8D OMG!! Looks like they somehow got ahold of Sesshoumaru's fluffy boa thing and are putting it to good decorative use.

wowowow that is gorgeous *_* did you use a mouse?
sheuzheiproihsheuzheiproih on January 15th, 2008 02:07 am (UTC)
Oh, no, I used a tablet. XD;; If I'd been stuck with using just a mouse, these probably would have taken me days to draw, if not an entire week.

so pretty *_*
sheuzheiproihsheuzheiproih on January 15th, 2008 02:11 am (UTC)
:D Hey-lo, Bel!

Thank you, I'm glad you like. I'm pretty happy with both of them, but I wish I could have expressed more of the bright colors, which are so evident in the chibis, in the original drawing as well.

So then, what ho! How's it going?
bellasurus on January 15th, 2008 03:01 am (UTC)
:DDD hihi!

is good enough *nods* i can't draw like that >>;; bleh. (but i wouldn't mind seeing some of that on my facebook...once i actually get it up and going *fails*)

me? i'm...back in school T_T and have urgings to write yoosu. like, chocolate-cravings-kind-of-cravings. :D

XD;; Yeeaahh ... I typed "Isabel Chan" into the Facebook search box out of curiosity, and got about a million and one results. Even narrowing it down geographically, process of elimination just doesn't cut it. I'll definitely draw you something once you've got a functional Facebook profile, though. ^_^
bellasurus on January 15th, 2008 03:47 am (UTC)
...i was going to edit my profile, then i went to the website and got...lazy. v_v;; i'll do it after i get out of school, heh.

*tackles* how's everything for you?
sheuzheiproihsheuzheiproih on January 15th, 2008 04:52 am (UTC)
School's alright, and so is life ... except that I need to do something about my Facebook Graffiti addiction. XD; It's taking over my brain and leaving little room for homework.

(Oh, and for if you try to find me on Facebook, mine should be more easily recognizable since I set the above chibi graffiti as my profile pic.)
bellasurus on January 15th, 2008 04:59 am (UTC)
(what about dongbang? XDDD)

oooooo okay will find you when i'm...less lazy v_v
sheuzheiproihsheuzheiproih on January 15th, 2008 05:07 am (UTC)
DongBang? Well, does watching my shiny new Five in the Black concert DVD twice over during winter break count? Heh. Haven't been very up to date in the fictitious fandom, though. But I did churn through some more Discworld novels.
bellasurus on January 15th, 2008 12:19 pm (UTC)
i thought you dropped out of fandom *dies* but anyway~
fics are okay *nods* dunno if you ever remembered or i ever told you, but i finally got off butt and wrote ariel v. prince eric. and there's a big chunk of nice fic floating around~just have to go find :P

...i kinda ploughed through all of them and have nothing left to read now ><;

<3 tiffo
sheuzheiproihsheuzheiproih on January 15th, 2008 04:54 am (UTC)
8D Tiffo!

Shall I name the four beasties in the first pic too? Methinks they would voice some objection to the names I gave their miniature counterparts ...

~ Hope you've been doing well lately! ~

So PRETTY!! *___* You are so very very gifted. <3
sheuzheiproihsheuzheiproih on January 16th, 2008 12:53 am (UTC)
:D Thank you! I really enjoyed drawing these, despite the time they took (time which should probably have been devoted to schoolwork instead, but ha). Hope you're doing well!
~ Blush of dawn ~ ♥: Jae- beginmikomi_tears on January 16th, 2008 01:01 am (UTC)
Yes, there's always school work to be done. I used to sit and read novels instead of doing my college classwork. If there was an exam people would always know they could find me on one of the couches in the student center, reading away. I was so bad.

I'm doing alright. Life is more down than up, but meh, such is the price of living so I'll just continue to do so. :D Hope it's going well for you as well??
