What started out as a scaling project for my art class has become my masterpiece. Even if it isn't of my own imagining this picture is my pride and joy. The original picture was beautifully done by Julie K. Gele and this version is posted with her permison. Though my picture has several major differences I owe its success to her. This picture represents a lot of firsts for me. Its the largest picture I've ever done (15 by 18) and defiantly the best I've ever done. I've never really put so much of my time into and picture before. The whole thing took about 3 weeks and is done entirely in prisma colored pencils. The scan isn't as good as the original and the picture is severly reduced but still, enjoy.

Beautiful. Colours are wonderful. But too small...

I agree-- I have seen the original (it caught my eye for this reason); I believe it is called "Sol." Your work does it supreme justice, I must say-- the colored background is a welcome relief from Sol's blaring scarlet and gold. It makes your phoenix stand out more clearly. You also used thinner lines than in the original, which makes this version a little more lifelike. A stunning scale drawing if ever I saw one, with enough originality to be unique. Kudos on a job well done!!
