song of the lightbringer by purpledaydreams song of the lightbringer by purpledaydreams

-Song of the Lightbringer-

Third piece for ~Thor6328

C o m m e n t s :
I am SO happy with this. Finally.
The phoenix is meant to look like Fawkes, from Harry Potter. I hope he resembles him somewhat.
The phoenix actually belongs to the foal, they're partners of a kind. So he's not really Fawkes per se, just an imitation.
I painted over almost every part of the phoenix, and I painted a lot of highlights and shadows on the horse and background. So. Much. Work. x.X
Thank you all for the comments and faves in advance. Sorry if I don't get around to answering every comment right away, but I will reply.
And once again, no critique wanted. Although some feedback would be nice. (:

Details can be seen here.

EDIT: Thank you all for the beautiful title suggestions! I couldn't decide between three in the end, so I'm putting the other two here --
By Feathers and Firelight
Chasing my Own Destiny

I think a good title would be "Rising of the Phoenix" or "Phoenix" for short. Let me know what you think! :)

Stunning. Just... Stunning. There's nothing my mortal eyes can find wrong with this. :XD:
My title would be 'Sweet Effigy' or if you want the whole lyric, 'Burn my Sweet Effigy'. Because this piece made be think of the song Fire by Kasbian.

Mm, anyway. Ah-mazing. :heart:
