EDIT: Updated version. Added a little bit more sharpness to the feathers and detailed the head a little bit, but also preserved the original aspect of the image. This was done because i entered it for approval in expose 8
Hope you still like it
Hello again, no time no see. I've been busy but here's one for you awesome people. I tried to imagine the well-known Phoenix bird in my own way, so i drawn this swan-like creature with a long tail and huge wings. Phoenix is also known as the Firebird but I think it's because of the beautiful colors it has.. and actually not because its made of fire.
So.. between reality and fantasy, i guess this is the way Phoenix looks like.
Aniways.. it took long hours.. sketch was drawn on A4 paper then painted over in Photoshop CS2.
Cheers people..glad to see you again
Thank you all for the kind words. I am completely bound with this piece of work and I am really glad it's gotten so much appreciation.
You guys made it possible, so I will upload a PRINT version as a gift for more than 1K faves on it.
Happy birthday DeviantART, I dedicate my phoenix to you.
