The Phoenix and the Cobra

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

This pic is based entirely on a dream I had. Where it came from I have absolutely no idea. This takes place only a few years in the future, so...yeah. It's a little weird, so, yeah.......I'll explain in the same way I saw it in my dream, and I have very poor writing skills, so if you don't like it, blah to you. BLAH! Done in pencil & ink, then colored using only 6 differant grey color pencils. And just as a side note, during this dream, in the background the song 'Ningyo Hime'from Chobits was playing. I think it fits. 'The world was nothing but a giant block of ice, encasing everything in it. In this time, both the Phoenix and the Cobra had taken on human forms to adapt. In every life time, the Cobra would seek out the Phoenix, and kill her, thereby taking in her life to keep herself warm from the cold. Snakes can't live in the cold. And this would last until the Phoenix was reborn once again, so the Cobra would have to begin the hunt again. Theirs was an unspoken love, because they needed each other to continue on, despite the brutal way it happened. The murders would continue until the Cobra found her again, and as they drove (Yes, they were in a car. Don't ask.) on, both knew who the other was, but as always, the Phoenix said nothing, nor did she struggle to get away. But the Cobra couldn't kill her anymore. She swung the car towards a dangerous patch of ice and wrecked it, being flung out and onto the frozen grass. She chose instead to freeze to death than kill the Phoenix anymore. Even as the police came and took the body, the Phoenix would say nothing, all she could do, for the first time in her existance, was cry.'
