Phoenix by rockgem Phoenix by rockgem
ok after folks took a look at my 'bird of of paradise' artwork - a few asked if i could do a phoenix piece. so i figured i coudl cheat and just change the colours on the bird of paradise one - or i could start over again and create a new piece. i chose the latter option and 2 hours later this is the result.
all done in adobe photoshop elements.
full view if you can to appreciate the detail in this
the original is a large size 68.98cm wide and 108.72cm high

they're one of my favourite things to try to compose in images ( for that matter mythical creatures in general) as i love the idea of all the flame colours
