Majestic Phoenix Dragon by Sky-Shifter Majestic Phoenix Dragon by Sky-Shifter
Re-upload from my old account; originally finished December 13th, 2010.

Revisited the phoenix dragon idea again. This one is one of my characters though. For lack of a better one, he was named Suess after someone said it reminded them of something that you would find in a Dr. Suess book.

Art and character belong to :iconsky-shifter:

Your'e very welcome! :thumbsup: :aww:
I wouldn't say that he looks anything like something from a Seuss book, far too magnificent for something so comical. :D

I think they meant it in a more whimsical way, though I guess it is a pretty strange comparison!

Cool idea, and very well done. Wish you would have kept the horns from the first one though.

Thank you! 

I didn't keep them because I wanted to do something different from the first- I thought it might be fun to go crazy with feathers and lean more towards phoenix attributes than dragon. It's a concept I'm fond of though, and will probably revisit in the future. Maybe next time I'll do more with horns and spikes than feathers.

It is really a majestic dragon :)
A truly beautiful design

lol and random question: Are the wings not attached to the main body or are my eyes messing with me?

Thank you! XD, I decided to go a bit crazy with his design, but it was a lot of fun in the end.

Yes, they're not attached to his body! I actually had drawn the feathers along his back in before I had drawn the wings and I really liked how they looked, but I would have had to erase most of them if I had drawn attached wings. I wanted big full wings, but I didn't want to erase his back feathers, so that was my solution, lol.

This... :wow: this is absofreaking fantabulous! I couldn't think of any real words to describe this, so there. Beautiful, vibrant colors! Love it! :love: Is this in copic markers as well? How did you get the scale pattern to stand out so nicely?
Once again, great job! Faved! :D

Oh goodness, thank you so much! :hug:

This is copic markers and colored pencils. The scales were shaded just with copics though (while the feathers had both), but I outlined them with a red micron before I started shading them.
