Sorry for my inactivity guys. It took me forever to finish this pic, but here it is! A Phoenix and a Thunderbird. I hope you like it!!
This is such a captivating and powerful piece of two different energies fighting over the dominance and the place for the strongest and coolest bird in the sky! I'm really liking the Thunderbird (Blue is my favourite colour, so I'm totally biased here!) and how life-like the lightning looks coming from within the bird. The Phoenix looks cool as heck and I really like the cloud of ash, flames and sparks behind it. Those small bits of fire look like burning feathers.
I really adore the detail work on both of the birds' plumage and how the electric is traveling as a blue light in-between the Thunderbird's feathers. The Phoenix's wings look almost metallic! It must've been training those feathers with all of the burning stuff its doing so much, that they've become steel-plated and battle hardened. Yet you can still tell that the feathers are delicate and soft.
All epic air fights must be fought in the mountain view because mountains are beautiful, enigmatic and cool as hell in the background! So that is a really good choice for the background! All in all: this is an awesome piece of art!
Thanks a lot for the critique! I'm glad you like it! Haha yeaah, mountains are cool, and they create depth!
Simply incredible and awe inspiring for someone who can't draw

Hey this turned out great! Saw it in the Level Up group on facebook, glad you went with this composition and nice implementation of all the feedback! Turned out really good!
You saw it in Draw or Die? Oh, thank you! It's the first time I see an actual link between my deviantart and Facebook haha
Haha yeah it could have been DoD too, I was just checking out the piece and comments to see if I could add something that had not been said yet. Did not pay attention which group it was xD anywho keep it up man!
Awesome elemental birds-of-prey!
This art is amazing! You can tell by looking at the fierce colors of the phoenix and The striking hues of the thunder bird. This art expresses such fine detail and emotion. The background fits into it all causing the scenery to create a dark but lightened mood. The color choice is just as great as the rest of artwork as it catches the viewers attention. There is also bold tension but there is also fear and bravery. Continue to express yourself in the many ways and wonders of art.
Thunderbird, who could cause storms with a flap of his wings, and Phoenix, whose body would turn to ash before rebirth. Beautiful myths that are portrayed just as beautifully here. The patterns along their eyes and beaks are lovely, as well. It adds a hint of variety to the colors.
