Ouroboros Flare by meralis Ouroboros Flare by meralis
Pretty simple symbolism here; The infinity Ouroboros, which is a snake biting his tail.
The Kanji is Chinese for snake. and I'll let you guys figure out the rest. ^_^

I really enjoyed doing this piece, and have come to find a gentle beauty in snakes since now drawing one (oh and yes this is technically my first drawing of a snake). Comments are always welcome and critiques are even more welcome.

Oh wow, I love dragons and this is absolutely beautiful. I have never seen anything like this before. It's very attracting to the eyes yet still rather calm in colors. How you managed to do that, I do not know. :eyepopping:

I guess you're right :P
i knew all that about the snake being symbol for rebirth (doing that kickass skin-changing bussiness :P, no wonder ancient cultures saw it and thought snakes were cool right away :P), but what I meant was that the iconism behind elemental was...hmmm...i guess, a bit more 'universal', you might say.

Anyways, it's your art...your technique's flawless, and both the snake and elemental are really kickass :)
your vision of both pieces...well, it's not better or worse...it's just different ;)

so don't panic, you're on your way to be a really impressive wavism artist!! -and wavism pioneer! who knows? :P-

Ohhhhh, okay I get what you mean. *nods* Yeah on that aspect elemental was better. Heh *shrugs* Hopefully my next pieces will connect with more people. heh Anyway, thank you very much for the critique. I'm always happy to hear what people think. ^_^
