EDIT: Updated version. Added a little bit more sharpness to the feathers and detailed the head a little bit, but also preserved the original aspect of the image. This was done because i entered it for approval in expose 8

Hope you still like it


Hello again, no time no see. I've been busy but here's one for you awesome people. I tried to imagine the well-known Phoenix bird in my own way, so i drawn this swan-like creature with a long tail and huge wings. Phoenix is also known as the Firebird but I think it's because of the beautiful colors it has.. and actually not because its made of fire.

So.. between reality and fantasy, i guess this is the way Phoenix looks like.

Aniways.. it took long hours.. sketch was drawn on A4 paper then painted over in Photoshop CS2.

Cheers people..glad to see you again


Thank you all for the kind words. I am completely bound with this piece of work and I am really glad it's gotten so much appreciation.

You guys made it possible, so I will upload a PRINT version as a gift for more than 1K faves on it.

Happy birthday DeviantART, I dedicate my phoenix to you.

I love this picture. Mostly because you took a new turn with the idea of the Phoenix. Usually, the Phoenix is fiery, because it turns into flames and is reborn. Though, in this picture, you have made it have a more mystical, and icy cold feel to it. If I saw this, it would fill me with hope but also send chills up my spine. I like that.
hi can i use this great Image for my first tattoo? :)

Hello! I am wondering if I can use this in a video I'm making? The video is going to be about angels, warriors, angel warriors, mages, witches, girls/boys with guns and/or swords and more. So, it's mostly going to be about fantasy and sci-fi stuff. I will make sure you are added to the credits list for your art at the end of the video and that you get a link to the video with your art in it. The songs that will be on the video is:

We Are Who We Are- By: Kesha
Blow Me Away- By: Breaking Benjamin
Naturally- By: Selena Gomez
Bet On It- By: Zac Efron (High School Musical 2)
I'm Alive- By: Celine Dion
Moves Like Jagger- By: Maroon 5 Feat. Christina Aguilera
Disgusting- By: Kesha
and more

WARNING: There might be 2-3 parts.

So, may I use this piece of art in my video?
