An old phoenix... Its feathers have lost their colour, only some remains on tips of its wings.

Found and pretty much remade this older drawing with the help of my coloured pencils, and kind of like how it turned out. Looks now a lot better, doesn´t it? Gave the orginal one away as a birthday-present. =)

Done with charcoal, pastels and coloured pencils.

See the orginal here: http://spyrre.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d1nmf50

Interesting idea, it’s like this one shaped itself to look a little like one of the bird ancestors with the claws and teeth.

I’ve heard that this could happen to phoenixes on some worlds and in order to die and regain life or give new life they have to fly to the heart of mountains of fire.
