The Dragon and the Phoenix by Axelroxsox The Dragon and the Phoenix by Axelroxsox
This is my A2 art end of year piece, done in acrylic paint on a canvas that is 125x89cm.

The concept is that in China the Phoenix and dragon are seen as the perfect couple, and I wanted to portay that simply on a canvas, so the background which I had originally planned to be stormy got changed to something calm last minute to portray the mood with more success.

I was worried the phoenix was going to end up looking like someone set fire to a seagull.

I used some random eagle referances for the Phoenix and the dragon is from my head, influenced by traditional chinese dragons (:

Thoughts apprciated? :)

The dragon and the atmosphere in the picture is very beautiful!
But the bird doesn't looks like a phoenix. It looks like an eagle.

Yeah, I prepared alot more for the dragon than I did the phoenix, but I wasn't sure on how to make the phoenix look kind of realistic to an extent without using a referance, and I think eagles are beautiful and majestic, but I agree with you!

I blame it wholey on the lack of preperation time they gave us for this, but I'm realy happy with it anyway.

Thank you for your comment!
