Please read the description, I'll try and explain as best as I can!

This is a commission for :iconcallyfin: requesting a mythological/Theological intrepetation of Arceus/Reshiram/Zekrom from the Pokemon world.

Arceus is the focal point.
Reshiram is the feathered white Pokemon.
Zekrom is the dark Pokemon
The Pokemon cradling the Earth is Giratina
The Pokemon above the black hole is Palkia
The Pokemon in the blue star field is Dialga.

empyrean |emˈpirēən; ˌempəˈrēən|
adjective
belonging to or deriving from heaven.
noun ( the empyrean)
heaven, in particular the highest part of heaven.
poetic/literary the visible heavens; the sky.

35 hours in Corel Painter. Background inspired by some crazy stuff on nasa.gov website.

:iconcallyfin: also wrote a passage describing this commission as well:

Arceus did not create the universe on His own. His divine influence was passed on through His children to shape nature.

He took his essence and carved it in half to create Aether and Epoch who created stars and dimensions for His creations to exist in.

Arceus crowned daughter Aether in Pearl and named her Palkia. He then crowned son Epoch in Diamond and named him Dialga. Arceus, now aided by his children, created his final son Giratina from Dark Matter and the Void.

He formed the World with His breath and commanded His son Giratina to cradle it. Giratina would take the burden of His Father’s creation and nurture it, for it was His divine order.

Arceus combined the passion of Fire and the corporeal strength of Dragon to create Reshiram, the holy Angel of light whose fire burnt brighter than any star. As light could not exist without darkness, He then combined the raw power of Electricity and the corporeal strength of Dragon to create Zekrom, the holy Angel of dark whose essence is that of life's own spark. They were His soldiers, unto which the order of the Universe as it was known was upheld.

Arceus gazed upon His creations, content to let life bloom forward now that the seed had been planted. And He fell into a deep slumber.

For once I see a Doctor Who reference that fits but isn't beating you over the head with it.
(I've watched the show only a few times.)

I guess the Doctor knows Dialga very well, considered that it is the Pokemon of time.

This is a neat interpritation. I akways equated the Tao trio to the creation trio, and not only because tehare all dragons. It's also because Dialga and Palkia, along with being rulers of time and space, also are associated with matter. And Reshiram and Zekrom, which supposedly split of from Kyurem, seem like postive and negative energy (I suppose this means the original dragon, before it split into reshiram and zekrom, and became kyurem, would have been the God of all energy. Which makes sense, as energy can be converted into matter, so I can see it as being a brother to dialga and palkia.) That would leave kyurem as absolute zero (no energy.) So they all fit together.
