What's Your Element? (Art, H50, PG)

Five headers/banners for the Five-0 Art Fiesta at h5oartvalentine.
Title: What’s Your Element?
Artist: paleogymnast
Medium: Digital art
Pairing or Characters: Steve, Danny, Chin, Kono, and Team + Grace and Kamekona
Rating: PG
Prompt used (if applicable): 1) Steve—water is his element (prompt by saphirablue) and 2) Artist’s choice, What ohana means to me. (prompt by les342)
Artist’s notes: This started out as a header inspired by prompt one—I wanted to show Steve’s relationship to water. Then it spiraled out into a set of four headers, one for each team-member showing them in their element (in a metaphorical sense) and attempting to capture a bit of their personalities. Then I felt like I needed a team banner/header to top it all off, and that was inspired by prompt #2. Hope you enjoy the results!

Wow! They are gorgeous!!!!

I love the Danny one - the colouring, the most important person to him in the world, the pictures you chose for the banner (for whatever reasons - I love profil shots of Danny!) -> ♥

Oh, and the Steve one! ♥_♥

I love the left picture of Kono!

And Chin on his bike! \o/

Oh, and the Team Banner! =)

Thank you! :)

You're welcome! Thank you for the great prompt!

I love profile pics of Danny too--I'm not sure what it is, but it really suits him.

I'm really, really glad you like the Steve one! It was the first one I made out of this set, and looking at it now I worry it feels a little... simplistic compared to the rest, but I still like how it looks.

I'm really glad you like the left pic of Kono and Chin on bike as well!! :D Thanks so much for your lovely comment! :D

These are awesome. Your coloring and image choice are perfect.

*feels silly* I have to ask for my own edification:

Steve = Water

Danny = Fire

Chin = Earth

Kono = Air

Is this correct? Or is there something I'm missing? 'Cause Chin, Danny, and Kono could all be variations of air. And I personally see Danny as more 'Earth' and Chin as 'Air'. But that would leave Kono to be 'Fire' and with her being the 'water bug' she is 'Fire' doesn't work for me.

I actually interpreted "element" more expansively than the five "elements" (earth, air, fire, water, and quintessence). So Danny's "element" is family. Kono's is surfing (more specific than Steve's general water, etc.

These are lovely. Steve and Kono are my favorites. I just love how you captured Steve swimming. :) And I really like the Ohana one.

Nice job. :)
