You did a wonderful job with the colors because they flow into each other quite nicely, I don't feel my eyeball jerk, which means that the color doesn't change suddenly. I love how the little girl looks like she is blowing on the shell(?) that gives birth to the firebird/dragon. I also like how I can't tell if that is a bird or dragon, it leaves me wanting to see it more and more. And the detail is just fantastic, and it doesn't leave me wishing there were more. Now, if only there were a movie based on this, that would be awesome :3

It is a quintessence of 'birth'. No striking emotions, no unusual surrounding... just the particular moment when a new life emerges. Phoenix is a legendary creature which can be reborn from ashes, but in your vision even this ash needs something more to become a new life, a causative power.
A woman can give birth to a child. The girl in the picture, however, is too young to do that. Still, she already has the ability to bestow the ash with life. One single warm breath and a beautiful and powerful bird arises. I love this concept.
The combination of colours is amazing. Darkness is light up (swallowed) by the warm bright light of a newborn life.
The only thing that needs correction, in my opinion, is the bird. I can almost hear its first scream after being reborn. It's very nicely drawn but lacks majesty. Guess that wider wings would improve the whole, but since the bird has only just been born, I assume that they will grow...
Thank you for submitting this deviation. It pleases the eye as well as the soul.

Your critique suits compliments this painting well. Like a hot cup of chamomile on a cold night.

First of all, great job! This was the first thing in my alerts to catch my attention! The colours compliment each other; the purplish blue and purple-red contrast perfectly. The way that the tail and smoke are blended together gives a mystical air to the picture. The only thing that caught my attention that looked slightly off to me was the girl's face. Between the nose and mouth looks a bit odd to me. The upper lip looks a little like it's jutting out. Or maybe it looks smaller, I can't quite tell! But that's only my opinion. Her hair could have a bit more red to go with the reds and purples. That's all though! Amazing job! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>

Beautious. The color, the realism, the blending. Beautifantastic. I love the vision. You had a clear picture of what you wanted in your head, and you voiced it in this picture with incredible fluency. Vision = 5. Excellent choice of color to contrast the fire from the phoenix. The blending and smudging make it easy to see the movement, and the heat coming from the beast. Technique = 5. If I were incredibly cheesy, I might say it looks real enough to reach out and touch. I'm not that cheesy and this is obviously a painting, but the incredible, tedious attention to detail makes WISH it were real, because it would be a gorgeous sight to behold. Impact = 5. I don't see many pieces with phoenixes anymore, and I've never seen one rising from the ashes done by an artist of your stature. I like the dorsal fin and the mustache-looking facial element, which I've not seen before, however in the end, this is a mythical beast that has been around for a LONG time. Originality = 4.

Just to start... This looks friggin' amazing. I love the attention to detail as well as the melange of color palette. This piece broadcasts your intentions of encapsulating rebirth and loss, while stressing the acceptance of that loss.

Looking at the connection between girl and creature, there is a definite feeling of wet heat, and your piece drips with that emotion. The simple act of blowing ashes gives momentum, and gives a sense of continuity.

There is just enough detail to give focus to the right elements, leaving the rest with an aura of mist and mystery.

Well done my friend.

Faved.
I might be interested in purchasnig this, is it for sale on your site please?

i love the flame effect!

Lovely, just lovely! The colors are fantastic, as is the concept. I actually like how the lower half of the girl is simply faded. It doesn't distract you with trying to find the "reality" in the photo, so you accept that it's dreamlike, and that makes it far more enjoyable. :D

This is an absolutely amazing piece! I'm thinking of writing a piece to go with it for #Lit-Visual-Alliance and I was wondering if I could include the lines "... take the life of my breath and save me from the dark."
