Emerald Phoenix


Someone named Emerald Phoenix wanted me to draw them an emerald phoenix since they were the only one to find my hidden symbols in my last piece. Well hope you like it, took a little longer than it should have but there's plenty of cool stuff to look at. And it's got my favorite colors too!

Wow, what a background! Really cool!

Talk about complex line work MATE.

coltybah responds:

yes, I would say that's my specialty hahaha

super creative. I really like the design in the back round. The green gem reminds me of the heart chakra. Awesome

coltybah responds:

Oh yeah I should have done the heart chakra symbol in crystalline form, that would've been brilliant. Thank you for your comment :D

Amazing, I have been looking at it for several minutes and I am still very impressed by all the details. The phoenix looks also very cool and the city gives it a great fantasy setting.

I am curious about the little orb, is there something special about it? Is that his eye that rolled out of it's socket?

Anyway, it turned out great. Challenge accomplished I'd say ;)

coltybah responds:

I'm glad you like it, it was fun to make. Since the phoenix is newly born I wanted to make it look like a little baby bird.

The orb is in fact a phoenix eye, it is symbolic of its past life, also take into account that the ash pile is shaped like an upside-down bird, a shadow of the creature's former self, now just literally dust in the wind.
