Father by terriblenerd Father by terriblenerd
Title suggested by :iconizuma:, as I had no bloody clue what to call this. Another strong title contender was, as proposed by *manic-pixie, "I Fart the Elements", but I felt it was perhaps too somber for a picture like this. :|

So uh. Yeah. Minute for the sketch, about an hour or two for the painting itself. Cool beans. It's all very symbolic, you know! Once I figger it out I'll tell you.

(P.S. So I'm gonna blow your mind here. But for once, I didn't smother everything in textures, like I am usually wont to do. 'Tis no more than a sketch and some good old-fashioned brushwork. WHAT'S UUUUP. <3)

Did you use a butterfly wing for the colors in the firey wing? I very much like the flow of the figure's body. I wonder if he's in agony or if he is simply raising his head...

He looks like the bad guy from Super Smash brothers Brawl. :D AWESOME. (I think his name was Tattoo?) but a bit more epic. :D

I guess I'm not the only who thinks this guy looks like Tabuu... *looks at comments* I was right. Anyway, it's very nice... You could also consider calling this "Symbiosis of Water and Fire," but...that's just my idea... It's still cool...

Honestly? First thing I thought of when I saw this was Tabuu from Super Smash Bros. Brawl. The whole bald humanoid with giant wings thing, I guess.

Ooh, very nice...I'm really likin' how it all comes together, y'know? You probably don't know what the hell I'm saying...Ah whatever >.<. Bottom line: I like it.

(And maybe I'm just a nerd, but the way the pose is, with the wings and all, reminds me of that Tabuu guy from SSB: Brawl...But that's probably cuz I'm a nerd...Yeah, let's go with that...)

I HATE to critique ANYTHING you do just because I know I can't draw and all of that, but if you ever feel like taking a look at this again and working on it, might I suggest putting in as much visual interest in the cold side as there is in the hot side? Maybe it's just me, but my eye is immediately drawn to the hot side and tends to stay there.
