Very, nice, it looks great al readt. I think you would make a great chance when its finished.
Great job and good luck.
My advice is to try and find a good reference of a bird's skull before you take this much farther. The skull can really make or break this piece. It's really looking good at this early stage, though.

Whoa! Nice work! -__^
Man, that phoenix hatchling is awesome. I love how he's not reborn instantly in all his glory, and I love the skull/egg. The turquoise b/g isn't working for me yet, and I think the lighting on the skull needs some refinement to its organization (you're probably working on both those things anyway, but just in case you aren't, thought I'd throw my two cents in in case it's useful.)
I like it,
I have a very visually different piece of a similar concept here
Please check out today's character.
The pheonix hatchling is an amazing concept.
master.mind - Thanks, i Think cutting the canvas worked out well. (More?)
Jason C-M - Thanks for the help. how is it now?
R a n d i s - Thanks, I keep an eye on some bird references, but I'm trying not follow them too strictly. It is a mythical creature after all.
kimliatach - Cool, Great minds think alike as they say :b
ninjacat11 - Thanks.
The bottom right is a bit of a mess right now and the mothers talon will either go in the front or back, but not both.
Keep the feedback coming
love the concept and the fire effects on the feathers etc this is definitely one of my favorites in the competition.
Just a thought, what about if the night sky were blackened with hints of grey/brown (like when you look up after a bonfire) diffusing the clear night sky?
Best of luck.
This is decisevly the best phoenix picture I've ever seen. No burning majestic bird. Simply newborn
