This is a phoenix picture I made very fast while visiting my friends with a scanner (I didn't have one myself) and good colored pencils (I lacked those as well). I made it for a very important person in my life because he's a Scorpio and I once heard or read something about the sign Scorpio having qualities of the Phoenix bird (death & resurrection). Someday I may do something about this picture. Or not. We'll see.

Have you heard of the Ice, Earth, Water, Stone, Lightning/Thunder Phoenix? Try to draw them. they're good ideas. (By the way, my code namd is: *icephoenix* , or *garnetunicorn*, or, *darkdragonalicorn*)

I can draw well too. I was surfing the net for legendary creatures, ( they're my specialty), and I saw your phoenix drawing. I just want to say, THANKS FOR THE IDEA! I REALLY NEEDED ONE!

Wow. I mean, really Wow. I really loved how the colors really captured the fires and the spirit of the phoenix and.... yeah. You say you did this quickly? I'd LOVE to see what it would look like if you put more effort into it if it looks so great now....

This is certainly "rough", i.e. not quite finished. Even so, I call it your best on this page. I too would love to see this done with the care and time it obviously deserves. Still, gorgeous! You connect the bird with the fire seamlessly.

It's very fantastic & very colorful. You can see that it is full of emotions and the meaning of this is very unpredictable. For me it is great! Hope that someday I can see the real Phoenix fling in the sky...
