1 of 6 sketches I did of the "The Six Sources" from my work "Raven Wolf" This one being Water.
The Six Sources, a collection of six powerful entities that represents the greatest powers that can be found on earth. Existing since the beginning of the planet they help govern life upon the earth, they are responsible for the beginning and end of all things upon the earth.
Fire and Ice
The elements which represent destruction and the end, long have these two sources brought about the end of lives, cities, civilizations and even the majority of the population upon the earth, these events though fearful and devastating necessary to life's great circle and the continuation of the planet.
Devastation is not the only power these two elements bring, as Ice and Fire are siblings to one another who cherish one another and all others, the power of family also a source of great strength that these two govern over.
Earth and Lightning
The elements that represent, power, strength and assistance to man, the earth gives man a home to live upon, and food to consume, while lightning provides man with the energy needed to bring progress and growth. Without these two things man would parish.
Alongside this these two elements bring about another source of power, the two being comrades, trusting of one another and always at the other's side, the two representing and governing over the power of friendship.
Water and Wind
The elements that represent life and renewal, without air to breath or water to drink no living though would survive, they are the basic fundamentals of survival for all things upon the earth. Nurturing man and keeping all life strong and alive is the task that these two elements do.
The task to give life to and sustain life without judgment nor doubt, such a task takes an unprecedented amount of love, this the other power that they represent, as the two were lovers that could never be torn apart.
