Flames into Phoenix by ICanReachTheStars Flames into Phoenix by ICanReachTheStars
Cover for my school's school paper called "De Feniks", meaning "The Phoenix". Uploading this before it has been publishes BECAUSE I CAN- *cough* Uhh the deadline for sending stuff is tomorrow but I don't feel like waiting 2 months. It always takes a while after the deadline before it's published D:

Because of the name I wanted it to have a phoenix it it, but DAMN THAT'S HARD ;A; Seriously, combining a person and a phoenix in 1 drawing and having them interacting and with a good composition, and so that both boys and girls and grown-ups will like the drawing.. THAT'S SO HARD!!;; I made 7 sketches before I changed one of the sketches into this one. I was happy with the girl but not with the phoenix and ended up cropping the sketch to half and making the phoenix about 7 times as small, and from fire and such. Buuut I'm really happy with this!

In the end I'm extremely happy with this drawing! :D I was quite late with the drawing so I didn't had any time to ask for tips by the sketch, but immidentally went to line it :c So I guess some things might be off, but I'm still proud! I really think the coloring did the trick here :D Also I like her expression, the color scheme, her pose, the phoenix' face, her hands, her hair and her outfit.. uhh that's about everything .__.;; Woops ^^; I guess I'm just really satisfied with this!;;

Has been a while since I uploaded some full artwork that isn't a year or a few months old, isn't a paperchild, isn't mainly linework, isn't only a small full work, etc xD So uhh.. enjoy! 8'D

ik vind de inhoud van de schoolkrant het niet echt waard om het weer opnieuw terug te lezen though xD

maar wel om het weer ergens de cover op te hangen |D

wow i think you the idea of an elf with the phoenix is a great idea!
i couldnt think of any ideas of a girl with a pheonix really it is really hard TT^TT i am sorry i wasnt of any help in this

i think you did an awesome work with the flames~ it being all orangie and all~ :heart:
and the shading and lighting is amazing! i love how everything reflects the original base color of orange~ it real pretty well done :heart:

the way her hair is flowing is kinda really pretty~ and you used dark line art! 8D
i kinda like it cause it has dark line art o3o to me it brought the drawing out like giving it a border line you can tell what is what and which is which
the bird is really pretty though i think it could have used bigger wings on it but i know the feeling of not wanting to cover the girls head with its large wings and all |D but hey this is pretty cool and i dont see anything or much things wrong with this ! :meow:
amazing job as always

It's really hard indeed! ;w; Oww doesn't matter, no one could help me in the end anyway haha XD But I figured out myself luckely! :D

Eheh, thank you so muchhh! ;w; I completely agree with the wings! They're so small, I really wish to make them bigger ;A; But like you said, then they'll cover her head :c Mehhhh;; Next time I'll make them bigger then |D Haha

Once again, thank youu! QwQ
