Phoenix of the Volcanoes by kalicothekat Phoenix of the Volcanoes by kalicothekat
*collapses*
FINALLY, I'm done with my Phoenix of the Elements oekaki profile series (wow, long name xD)!!! :D :D :D :D :D :dance:

Here's the last one. This is the well-known phoenix of fire, also called the Firebird. He is commander over all that is flame. When his busy, hot-headed life is over, he soars into a volcano. When the volcano erupts, his ashes reform themselves into a new phoenix. Fire can always be reborn, as all that's needed is a little spark from nature or humans. This one here has just been reborn and shows off his majestic beauty in front of his "pyre."

Here's the other pictures from the series: (will be compiled together in one big ol' print x3)
Ice: [link]
Earth: [link]
Air: [link]

Comments are truly appreciated! :)
Time taken: 184 min (about 3 hrs x3)
Tools used: Paint BBS at the SROA
Series idea and all the pictures in the series (including this one) are to me, "Kalico" Kat, 2005.
(Of course, the idea of an elementals series cannot be copyrighted by me--it's more the idea of the designs of all the phoenixes in the series. Also, since I've never seen an elemental phoenix series, I guess I'd like it if any credit of any phoenix inspired by these went to me...but I'm not so sure I can claim that xD)

Lovely! I like how the eye contrasts with the rest of the colors. ^^

Congradulations on finishing the whole series! It must have taken forever, all that detail; I revere your attention span.
