Flames of rebirth by FireEagleSpirit Flames of rebirth by FireEagleSpirit
"The phoenix must burn to emerge." - Janet Fitch

Painting I did to practice semi-realism and commemorate my 50k views... thank you people!
I'm glad to be able to draw again, even if just a little- so the phoenix theme was indispensable, and Aquila as my ever and forever loved character




Remake of this The spirit of a phoenix by FireEagleSpirit 

LOL I'm so so happy with the improvement :eager:

I'm still bad with profiles, though

Counterpart: Heart of the dragon by FireEagleSpirit

Aquila: my character

This. Is. PERFECT! :iconiloveyouplz: My absolute favorite among your latest works! Gosh, I don't even know where to begin. :faint:

The phoenix, he's magnificent, I could stare at him for hours, just look at those long tail feathers.  I like the gradient transition between golden hues to red almost identical to Aquila's hair and easily blending with it. Llama Emoji-23 (Shyness) [V1] 

Also the way he's positioned on Aquila's head reminds me of egyptian crowns I've seen Cleopatra depicted with. Of course this Queen needs a very special crown. :iconhurrrplz: 

And both of them having the same eye markings and rocking that golden jewelry. Llama Emoji 27 (Awesome) [V2] I just love the little engraving details you added and Aquila's earrings. Llama Emoji 35 (Desire or Want Something) [V2] 

The soft glow gives it a nice dreamy sort of look and combined with pale yellow background and their designs is strongly reminiscent of ancient Egypt. Simply stunning. :wow:

Congratulations on 50k views, you more than deserve them! Llama Emoji-05 (Flower Sparkles) [V1]

OMGG I'm dying here... seriously this was the most epic comment I've ever seen! :iconiloveyouplz:

You simply seem to read my thoughts - it is a bit creepy but awesome :giggle:

Like I never thought anyone would notice the "crown" symbolism used here... I thought it was way too subtle and weird to be seen - plus not everyone is a fan of Egyptian style and it isn't mentioned on the pic -but you DID :lmao: seriously epic comment is epic - and you left me full of fuel to make more original fancy stuff 

Ahhaa I'm so glad you liked the phoenix... it is really interesting to draw them together, I love to make it seen like they are related :giggle: and notice every detail like the engravings.. ! :iconicameplz: gahh I loved reading this, thank you so much! :iconhurrrplz:

I loved Aquila's serious expression! Especially how the phoenix's colors match Aquila perfectly!!! The lighting in the background is GREAT and how it glints onto the feathers and attire!!!

Thanks dear! :happybounce: 

I generally like giving her a austere expression, I think that's part of her character - well,she has sense of humor but is a serious person most time ^^ I'm glad you noticed it

and the phoenix surely resembles her! Well noticed again :meow: I like to make them very similar so they are supposed to be part of each other

I'm also glad you liked the light effects, they were so fun to draw! I love working with metallic objects such as jewelry :love:

The Queen has returned! Long live the Queen! I love it but Im a sucker for red haired badass women with phoenixes. GAH I LOVE the glinting jewel effect - how did you do this?!? It all looks so 3d with all the shadows and contrast - you are so good and see how much you have improved even though I do still love the first pic. I look forward to more. Love Love  (PS I haven't forgotten about the Madara pic comment, I just had to get those tagged posts and the Uzumaki meta out of the way first. Sweating a little... )

Wow! :iconimcryingsomuchplz: This made me all emotive now... I'm simply happy to be back and doing my stuff again - so I needed to make sure I could still draw Aquila:giggle:

BTW I'm really glad you liked it and the other picture... that was one of my favorites - not much because of execution and technique - more because a personal thing I like it because it puts her and the phoenix together in a sort of comparative way, as if they were the same and at the same time I changed the new picture a bit because I wanted more dynamism and a more protective feeling of the phoenix towards her

:iconiloveitplz: The jewels are some of my favorite stuff to color,so I'm hyper glad you liked - well, I think it was made with the addition/luminosity layer on SAI, and the overlay layer helps to add more 3d effect

BTW, I totally changed my way of coloring, now I do all the shadows and coloring in B&W, and at the end I add a layer of overlay with the desired color over, so I think it might be looking a bit different, I'm generally enjoying this new tech much easier and fast
