Phoenix of the Ash

December 25, 2013

Merry Christmas! I hope everyone has a grand Christmas Day.

Now, in celebration of Christmas I wanted to do something special, so I thought I would attempt to do epic fantasy styled art, themed after The Twelve Days of Christmas. Mostly because when I randomly sketch something, it usually turns into something fantasy related. It’s a genre that leaves lots of room to be creative, which I like. So, for the Twelve Days of Christmas I will be posting one picture each day of an epic fantasy interpretation of each of the twelve gifts.

1, Phoenix of the Ash

For my first piece of art, to represent “A Partridge in a Pear Tree” I chose to depict A Phoenix in an Ash Tree. This particular Phoenix is rising from its former ashes, and starting life anew in a snow-dusted ash tree, as the snow melts around it from the heat of the short-lived flames moments before. It’s a somewhat impressionistic style, but since I only started working on all this art a little over a week ago, I can’t promise too much detail on any of them. I still have a big bundle of art left to finish up.

So, farewell for now, and Merry Christmas once again, it’s back to the drawing board for me.
