Cool. It looks kind of like a 3D sculpture carved from wood. Thanks for visiting my Etegami blog. :D

Great work! That phoenix looks like he's got a bit of Pterodactyl in him/her :D

Hey, way to go! I'm surprised I didn't think of a phoenix. Great work!

Julie said...

Very Powerful I've always loved the phoenix story.

ines said...

nice!

But picking up on the comment you left on my blog, strictly speaking he's not really a bird, is he? Can mystical creatures be classified by ornithologist? :-P Ah, he flies and he's beautiful and birds of a feather fly together especially when it comes to art! So let's call him a favorite and beautiful bird.

Good one! both the drawing and the idea. The phoenix is one of my favorite symbols. By the way, cool idea for Whimsical Wednesday.

I love these one liners you do, and the prompt of burning is a great one, I never would have thought of a phoenix. Looks great.

Love this, powerful bird and you show that in your sketch. Thanks for visiting my blog. I will check out whimsical Wednesday but it may be a few weeks before I can participate, we are in the middle of Christmas Tree harvest.

Very nice IF drawing. Your art overall is quite impressive!!

PS I see you signed up for Sunday Sketches but not finding your post for it that mentions your sketch or SS. Am I missing something? :)

Great job, your phoenix looks strong and powerful. I'll try to use ink and pen more often because i'm not so good at this.
