Amulet: Fire and Ice (the redraw, begone old one) by ShadowoftheTempest Amulet: Fire and Ice (the redraw, begone old one) by ShadowoftheTempest
Happy Birthday to my friend LAdolphingirl!!!!!! Happy Birthday Xak  Happy Birthday Sini 5 seconds hug   I know you really like Memily, so I tried drawing them for you! Sorry we haven't talked much these days, but you can always pop by and give me a message, I'm always open for any conversations. Komari hugs Rin [V5] 


( There was extra space, so I added the random stuff section. Ignore that if you want, but it was 2 in the morning when I did it, so...yes.) And yes again, this is a redraw from about 6-7-8 months ago, don't look at the old one. Still using LA's amazing idea of fire and ice though, credit goes to her..

Why the phoenix and griffin/ Sun and Moon?

1. Max is pretty easy, since it's his surname. The griffin is a mythological creature with the body, tail and back legs of a lion, the head and wings of a eagle, and eagle talons as their front feet. Since the lion was considered the king of beasts and the eagle king of birds, the griffin was though to be king of all creatures. They were also known for guarding treasures and priceless possessions. I think it was the term 'once in a blue moon' that got me to put the moon in the background, since his amulet is blue, but the moon in there is shattered. (maybe because Max is 'shattered' in a way /kicked) Still keeping to the ice element in this picture.

2. I chose the phoenix for Emily since one, the bird tribute she did at the end of book 4, and two, her last name. In Ireland, Hayes originated as a Gaelic polygenetic surname 'O Aodha', meaning descendant of Aodh (fire), or of Aed, a Irish mythological god. It was also though to be derived from the Yiddish name Khaye, meaning 'life'. ( And the phoenix is suppose to obtain new life by rising from the ashes after being burned.) The sun because it's often associated with the phoenix, and Em's element is fire.

( Apologies for the text wallsSweating a little... )


All characters except for that silly chibi of me belong to Kazu Kibuishi

( By the way, I still haven't read the 7th book, so no spoilers please. But I did see someone on my bus reading it, good lord I nearly strangled her. Big thanks to LA for not giving any spoilers, thank you very much! )

( Ahh thank you! I wasn't sure if the background was alright, but it seems good enough!)  This idea is really compelling to draw, and the fact that I can link a bunch of mythological motifs with it makes it so much better~:shuffelin:
