So the first thing I noticed was kind of in the background again though I'm not entirely convinced it's background XD Those concentric white rings that look like holes in a tree except either the tree is a World Tree or a gateway to another dimension.  And the reason I'm not sure it's nackground is because the grey background of the circles without the white highlght bits across over the top of the spire thing that initially registered as foreground.  Clumsy way of saying I really like how it overlaps and completely messes with the viewer's sense of perspective and what's where.  The black outermost pattern feels a bit invasive/crushing, given the title of the emblem I'm going to guess that was at least subconsciously intentional XD Overall very cool :)

Lovely comment! I laughed so much (in a good way) XD (well, you've made my day :))

Everything here was intentional, there is no coincidence :) The real background is the grayish hole in the ground beneath the small tree. The big tree around the whole drawing is actually the nightmarish shadow of the small tree itself, though the shadow is in some way transparent so can be hard to spot :) But the transparency isn't also the real one, since everything is reversed there, like with real fear, which can twist the whole world and make you see things in a wrong way, or make you blind for the others (like the steps around the hole in the background). About the steps, when you look at the hole there are an escape to the surface for the small tree if the island will eventually fall apart, but the fear (the shadow) make the steps disappear so the tree thinks there is no hope for the escape. Also, the bottom of the hole is the darkest place in the world, but the fear (the shadow) twists the reality, so the small tree sees it as a light of hope, something good to pursue to, which is obviously wrong.

And there is more hidden things, so... A lot is happening here :) You can be confused, since the topic is very complex :)

This is a really striking image.... I like specifically with this one( and the last circular piece ) is the slightly off symmetry.... When looking at it initially it has this graphic -symbolic power because of the circle format, but also because of the symmetry..... when you spend more time with it though,  there are little organic differences that keep the image unique and alive. I also feel like there are several mixed layers that have different perspectives and use of time. I don't mean that as a negative ..... it is like there is an outside omniscient force choosing the curtail elements. 
:) 
In terms of fear, I respond to the solitary crumbling island.... and the invasive roots and branches. 

Love
Fear
...
Will there be others in this series?

Yes, there will be at least 6 more. Depending on the mood will draw the next one or take a break for something entirely new :)

Fear is mostly in our mind but in most cases we are it's source, thus the shadow of the tree (if you look closer, since I've blended it with the deep hole acting as the background) is mixing with the branches ('mind') of the tree itself causing even more fear ('mind' flames behind the tree). Yes, there are many layers here, many faces of fear.

Love and fear... as far as emotions go are pretty heavily weighted... what other emotions are you thinking of .... are they on the same level as love and fear ? 

How do you see Love and fear in terms of good and evil....?
Will the other emotions you choose be clearly positive or negative?

Do you see a positive side to fear?
A negative to love?

Wow, great questions! Here we go...

From my experience, love is mostly a dark and full of sorrow sensation. But, since I'm still an idealist, I see it as good one and without any doubt, the powerful one.
Fear is something I constantly fight against. It can consume you, so for me it's mostly evil. However, I can see something good in it. Without fear we would be careless, and could do so much more harm to others including ourself.

I'm rather negative person, or I simply choose to be positively disappointed than other wise :) So next drawings from the series will be rather negative (except two). I have done basic sketches for: anger, happiness, hope, desire, alienation (I consider it as a feeling), envy and sadness. It's probably not the exact order I will draw them, and it will take some time, since I have also other ideas for different drawings :)
