IF: Phoenix


The molting of the phoenix is only slightly less spectacular than its rising from the ashes...

I like his expression - you'd think he'd be used to this by now, having been reborn thousands of times!

I thought I already left a comment for this days ago. Turns out I didn't. The post-holiday's really messing with my sense of time. This is a very funny piece, dude. The colors and linework combine to make it "zip"! The unique concept, however, is what throws this one over the top.

hartini said...

Princess Pepper Cloud said...

Happy New Year to you and your creative self.
