Just to start... This looks friggin' amazing. I love the attention to detail as well as the melange of color palette. This piece broadcasts your intentions of encapsulating rebirth and loss, while stressing the acceptance of that loss.

Looking at the connection between girl and creature, there is a definite feeling of wet heat, and your piece drips with that emotion. The simple act of blowing ashes gives momentum, and gives a sense of continuity.

There is just enough detail to give focus to the right elements, leaving the rest with an aura of mist and mystery.

Well done my friend.

Faved.

Beautious. The color, the realism, the blending. Beautifantastic. I love the vision. You had a clear picture of what you wanted in your head, and you voiced it in this picture with incredible fluency. Vision = 5. Excellent choice of color to contrast the fire from the phoenix. The blending and smudging make it easy to see the movement, and the heat coming from the beast. Technique = 5. If I were incredibly cheesy, I might say it looks real enough to reach out and touch. I'm not that cheesy and this is obviously a painting, but the incredible, tedious attention to detail makes WISH it were real, because it would be a gorgeous sight to behold. Impact = 5. I don't see many pieces with phoenixes anymore, and I've never seen one rising from the ashes done by an artist of your stature. I like the dorsal fin and the mustache-looking facial element, which I've not seen before, however in the end, this is a mythical beast that has been around for a LONG time. Originality = 4.

Lovely, just lovely! The colors are fantastic, as is the concept. I actually like how the lower half of the girl is simply faded. It doesn't distract you with trying to find the "reality" in the photo, so you accept that it's dreamlike, and that makes it far more enjoyable. :D

This is an absolutely amazing piece! I'm thinking of writing a piece to go with it for #Lit-Visual-Alliance and I was wondering if I could include the lines "... take the life of my breath and save me from the dark."

I absolutely love this, and if I were to replicate this concept, there's no way I could do better. In my version, there would be more obvious looking flames, since this is a phoenix (I think).

Wow, this image brings a whole new light to the mystical creature, the phoenix. Never realized how amazingly awe-inducing powerful they are! I love how detailed the image gets. It's almost as if the phoenix could jump out of the paper and come to life! Great job!
