Original: Fire and Ice by Risachantag Original: Fire and Ice by Risachantag
The original concept was for one of the conceptart.org forum challenges ( 'Ying and Yang' ), but I was incredibly busy and had no hope of finishing at the time. I managed to get it done in time for Swancon though, so I was able to display an A2 print of it in the Swancon art gallery over the Easter weekend.

The concept is Yin and Yang, though I wanted to do two opposing 'elements' other than light and dark, so I chose fire and ice.

Detail shots available here: [link]

Time: About 12-16 hours
Tools: Photoshop CS2 & 3, Wacom Graphire tablet

As glad as I am that you went with a different theme other than dark and light,
fire and ice(/water) are pretty common.

I'd really like to see an earth and sky(air/wind) sometime...


Just laying ideas out

The firey one sort of reminds of Axel (the fiery dude from KH2) was that planned?
