This peice has the look of something that was inspired by a great peice of art, but all it really was, was a random image that popped into my head and I liked it. It was originally going to be a dragon, but The wings were so hard that I decided to make it a bird. When I had finished, it reminded me of a phoenix, hence the name.

such a simple picture, but SOOOO striking! congratulations on mods choice, much deserved! but i do believe it could be sharpened, but it looks like it's very windy, and seems like that's what you were going for, with all that motion!

This is amazing.... it's the best thing I've seen all hour, maybe all month.(im in school when i do this) the texture, you can so tell it's sand 'not just because the color', and the pheonix looks EXACTLY like a Desert Pheonix, mostly because they can turn into sand (hope Gaara's not around, he'll suck it up into the gourd). The frill as well, is a Desert Pheonix's. Awesome job! Uh, waaaaaaaah, Asuma!! Ehem, sorry.

I’m glad you made a pretty bird!2 Sooo many people make fire phoenixes, and you making a sand phoenix, well I am just sitting here mezmerized.3 I say, you’re experience with sand shows, cuz if you saw me trying to draw sand...it would probably look like mutated play-dough XD.8 Lovely idea, and another MOD’s choice is much deserved! 18 *sand falls into mouth as phoenix flies overhead* Phew, yuck,...ugh! well, sand phoenixes are amazing on MOST occasions...10*spits out sand*.
