Great job, love the textures and shapes. I don't like the flame coming out the bottom of the phoenix, not sure what it's doing there. Maybe add some light? That's what flame is all about. It just seems quite dull at the moment.

Keep up the work :)

Hi, thanx for the comment... the flame out of the bottom was supposed to be a long tail... I am also thinking of doing something with the background, just haven't decided what yet!!

Ah right, I'm not quite sure what a suitable background would be to be honest.

Phoenixes rock! I like the layout of this one, I understand the black background as it fits for a wallpaper. It needs more sparks and more detail on the head, but it's great as it is ^^

Hi... Thankyou for your feedback... I agree, to much unused space. I am a beginner at computer artwork... I'm still trying to work out how to create some new effects that don't ruin the pic. I will work on this image as you suggest.
