My writing and art! Main @cjadewyton and polished work on @jade-wyton
Sorry for the long post, RIP.
Some symbols for Ilyris! Each represents both an element and a piece of the culture that they originate from. Needless to say, these took a long time to get right!
Earth- Soft like dirt and sand, and yet thick like deep-stone and patterned like a paint-spatter.
Fire- Spiked like a burning flame, and tight and rough like the weave of a farming basket.
Floral- Shaped like pollen and flowers, and pushing outwards from the center like a city with no walls.
Ice- Pressing outward like a decorated snowflake, and yet pulling inwards like the a homely tundra villiage.
Metal- Intricately bound like filigree, and shaped like key-handles for the people who prefer to stay behind locked doors.
Storm- Sharp and jagged like lightning, and complex like the weapons and traps of the airborn hunters that rule the skies.
Water- Shaped like spray from a fountain, and smooth like a wave-washed pebble used to decorate an ocean home.
