My initial plans were to make phoenix-humanoids that were linked together going from ashes to a fiery angel then back to ashes again, but I found by accident some interesting effects that resulted in me deviating from the original concept.
I feel like it came out a bit weak. I don't know if the somewhat peaceful atmosphere has something to do with it. Or maybe the themes just don't resonate with me?
(I might revisit the initial concept in another image, maybe.)
