Bree and the Phoenix
I love the Phoenix, not just as something fun to draw, but also for it's meaning: new life. I tried to introduce some introduce a bit of brown in with the red of the Phoenix. I thought it would be nice to add a bit of variety using more common, earthy colors. As a result, it now has a sort of autumn pallet, and that was not what I was going for. Nevertheless I think it works as an image.
