Artwork Tuesday - Element Symbols

Not long ago I wrote an entry about a collaboration of artists for a trading card game. I decided to share a little of my own artwork for the game.

The game is heavily dependant on the classical elements: Air, Water, Earth, and Fire, and the entire game revolves around the different elements and the way they branch off into more complex elements. Every character and creature in the game belongs to a particular element.

I'm going to share the symbols I've designed for the four base elements, with a little artistic flare thrown in. I can't stress enough that these symbol designs may not be downloaded, copied, or reproduced in any way. They are the property of Dr Yoshiyahu Games.

I specifically designed the symbols to look hand-drawn, almost like runes carved into rocks.

These are just the four base elements, by combining them, and branching off these four, there are a total of thirty-seven elements in the game. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Stay tuned for more updates about these elements, and the others in the fictional world of Obsidian Valley.


  1. Wow, these are really great pieces of art~! I can't wait to see the rest of the elements~! I can't believe that no one else has thought to have 37 elements in their game D:~~, such a good idea. It adds real diversity to the game. ^_^

    1. I've begun establishing a wiki for this game and any other games set in the fictional world I've created. On this page:
      You can see all the elements and how they branch off each other.

  2. How many people work for Dr. Y now?

    1. Really only two. I get freelance artists occasionally to do stuff but it's really just me and my graphics designer.
