Una imagen echa para FNX :)
HI there guys! This is a Pic I done time ago, hope you like the grandfather of Moltress, the original "myth" bird of mythology (but not the only one, there is a lot more), The Phoenix... hope you like it

Let´s Wikiattack!!
The phoenix (Ancient Greek: Φοῖνιξ, phoínix, Persian: ققنوس, Arabic: العنقاء أو طائر الفينيق, Chinese: 鳳凰 or 不死鳥) is a mythical sacred firebird that can be found in the mythologies of the Persians, Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, Chinese, and (according to Sanchuniathon) Phoenicians.

A phoenix is a mythical bird that is a fire spirit with a colorful plumage and a tail of gold and scarlet (or purple, blue, and green according to some legends). It has a 500 to 1000 year life-cycle, near the end of which it builds itself a nest of twigs that then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix or phoenix egg arises, reborn anew to live again. The new phoenix is destined to live as long as its old self. In some stories, the new phoenix embalms the ashes of its old self in an egg made of myrrh and deposits it in the Egyptian city of Heliopolis (literally "sun-city" in Greek). It is said that the bird's cry is that of a beautiful song. The Phoenix's ability to be reborn from its own ashes implies that it is immortal, though in some stories the new Phoenix is merely the offspring of the older one. In very few stories they are able to change into people

Hola! Me temo que alguien está exhibiendo una calca o copia de tu trabajo y usándola para anunciar sus diseños de tatuaje 'personalizados' aquí:…………

Su otra cuenta es u/ZexyS. Como se la pasa spameando una subreddit que modero con sus anuncios, supuse que tener pruebas de que las cuentas son de la misma persona y de que es una copia prácticamente exacta podría llegar a ser útil. Te dejo la liga por si pudiera servirte a tí también:

This is the comment I posted previously:

"I would like to license this image to use on the cover of our album. Is that something you do?"

I am still interested. The name of the group is "Cinderborn", so this image would represent us perfectly.

In my childhood, I read a novel about a boy who befriended a phoenix. The wise bird showed him wonders and took him to wonderous places.

BUT the time came for the phoenix to - die. He was desperate to dissuade it from this drastic action, even as it gathered the pyre-nest. He had to watch his friend immolate itself. Then the phoenix was born anew. But ... it regarded him as a stranger now ! As the boy approached, it drew back like a wild animal, and eyeing him warily flew off. The boy was mourning anew as the story closed.
That's all I recall of a book I last read some 50-60 years ago.

Have you heard of the Pheonix Orb Project? They are using your pheonix artwork and not crediting you
