Rise Again and Again by rah-bop Rise Again and Again by rah-bop
Commission for *Nambroth. She asked me to dragonize her phoenix character, Zhyree, which I did with total abandon. I love these colors omg. You can't even see all the details I put in the wings, though. x_x This is 20% original size.

Photoshop, Painter X, and openCanvas 1.1

These dragons are some of the best on dA ... I love it how, rather than making them bulky and big and strong, they're rather slender, agile ... beautiful. You deserve every 'favourite' you get!

I really love the pose and colors and waaa the dragon head so so nice ^^

And really good job on the background as well : )

But you know >.< seems like you forgot to paint one of the nails on wing spines. It has solid color compare to others. (1st on the left wing, close to the body) But yes really nice job (^.^)b

Should I be suspicious? The shape and pose is very similar... Just letting you know. I haven't investigated further, so I may be wrongly accusing ^^;
