Phoenix Rising



That's more like it :D
[é] 27. 08. 2009
fixed.... nearly 70 % of the whole pic:
reviewed hair (now get more realistic light source), colors (I especially make the her clothes more contrasted and red; as requested) ; cleaned lines.... add FX....

I saw something interesting in the last page of the last Uncanny X-men I bought , so It remembered me It was time to do some Marvel stuff :lol:

I've done a phoenix and a dark phoenix years ago.
Problem is my most viewed deviation is the phoenix, and that was based on an Adam Hughes drawing of lara croft...

so... mmm. I'ts time to submit a phoenix fully of my own.
It was supposed to be the classical , but it ended as the dark one because.... she has more style :D

Don't ask me how I put the colors on that one: I have no clues ( like 70% of the time) but i'm more than happy with the way it ended; really !
for the composition I kept some kind of art nouveau mood, without using any tricks of it... that's hard to describe, but if you're familiar with the AN style, you'll get the clues ;)

Drawing and inking on classical photocopies paper (yeah, most of the bristol I use suck at the inking step; and beside, I don't like to pencil on too smooth surfaces)

colors on photoshop 7.0 / wacom. <b/>
