black phoenix by Tacimur black phoenix by Tacimur
I liked the lineart, everything else made it worse and worse.
It's Gadeth's black spirit phoenix that I like to call Miranda for some odd reason. Hovering above... an unspecified source of purpleish glowstuff. Hooray!
btw, 'she' later degenerated to the thing I uploaded here as "Ugly black bird of ugly".

Wow this looks awesome. I have my own drawing of a black phoenix, but this is very nice. Really well colored if you ask me and nicely shaded. LOVE it!

Another mythical creature like the phoenix. Your work reminded me of it.

I will quote some of the facts I remember:
The Augurey, also known as the Irish Phoenix. It was long believed that the mournful cry of the Augurey foretold death, and people would go to great lengths to avoid Augurey nests. However, research determined that the Augurey merely sings when it is about to rain.

That is about it. I was asking if that is what it was intended to be, but I am guessing that is not so.

:) Nah, I wrote in my description what this drawing meant.
But it's funny how so many cultures have their own phoenix legends, isn't it? A phoenix that only sings when it's about to rain, that's poetic.

... That was spontaneous, forgive me.

Even longer? Do you have a real world bird reference as for how long you'd like them?

Mhm. On that pic they're about twice as long as the body. Of course it's always a matter of foreshortening, which can be extreme in bird photographs, but yep, seems I drew the ones on my pic shorter. (even though they were photo referenced, too.)

There's a black sheep in every family, they say. *g* No, actually, that phoenix wasn't evil, just made and imprinted by an evil person. It's not a real bird, this one, just a thought form that someone created.
