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.
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.
