My trade part for
. She asked me to do a picture of her phoenix character Solaris
and I was happy to oblige. I like Solaris' design (and his armors! xD ) a lot.
Ah, what should I say about this picture... I thought about doing my oldest trades first but lately I've been struggling with them so much that I wanted to work on something else. And at least I still feel confident about working on pictures of phoenixes even though I think I've lost most of the grip I used to have of bird anatomy. Oh well, my style is anyway far from realistic.
My first vision of this piece was quite far away from the result. Then I added there some flames. And a red sky. And then I messed around with the layers and layer styles (again) and the sky ended up looking like that. Not that I would mind, though.
Okay, that's enough with blabbering.
Hope you like it, Anka!

<3 I finished this work from about the half-way with my new tablet and the first nib of the pen is quite well worn out... Oh gosh...
