I drew a sketch that turned into a drawing of a bird in the same style as the fawn; it wasn't until a friend took one look at it and said 'oh that's a nice phoenix' was it ever considered to be coloured, let alone painted, but then a thought hit me, like a twenty pound sledge 'I could oil painted it...' and so I pulled out my oil paints that were given me two years ago but i had neglected to use for a lack of knowledge and experience. Unfortunately for the painting, my beloved cat X (Echo) jumped up on my lap while I was working (multiple times) and got her lovely bushy tail in the paint so the background has been CG'd. Overall, I'm extremely pleased with how it turned out.
