    IDW # 163 : The Phoenix

    IDW # 163 : The Phoenix

    Topic: The Phoenix
    Deadline: Wednesday, April 13

    Quote Originally Posted by Wikipedia
    A phoenix is a mythical bird that is a fire spirit with a colorful plumage and a tail of gold and scarlet (or purple, blue, and green according to some legends). It has a 500 to 1000 year life-cycle, near the end of which it builds itself a nest of twigs that then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix or phoenix egg arises, reborn anew to live again. The new phoenix is destined to live as long as its old self. In some stories, the new phoenix embalms the ashes of its old self in an egg made of myrrh and deposits it in the Egyptian city of Heliopolis (literally "sun-city" in Greek). It is said that the bird's cry is that of a beautiful song. The Phoenix's ability to be reborn from its own ashes implies that it is immortal, though in some stories the new Phoenix is merely the offspring of the older one. In very few stories they are able to change into people.
    The Phoenix is the codename for a top secret weapon being piloted by the New Republic of Oceania- a state which is growing in power by leaps and bounds. All that is known is that the Phoenix is a supremely apt name for the weapon as the method in which it works corresponds with the mythology.

    Use the mythology and symbolism that appears with the phoenix myth to design this weapon. You may choose any part of the myth from the straightforward "rebirth from fire" to the "depositing of an egg in Heliopolis".


    Information and Inspiration:
    Phoenix (Mythology) on Wikipedia

    Brief:
    1. Design and draw the Phoenix.
    2. That's it... now draw!

    Mu idea is a projectile that burns the place when it hits, like a napalm strike, but this projectile got a system inside that stay fixed on the floor on hit, this system throw lava around the place it is standing.

    It is called the "Phoenix" because the victims who is near the landing place get blind by the projectile strike, them when they can see again everything around is fire, and in the middle looks like a strange creature that came from the ashes of all that fire.

    Please tell if I'm on topic.

    idea : The phoenix is a quick , stealthy , lower altitude range craft which deploys drone-mines in enemy territory and ecapes just before these timed mines explode . Ill make the idea clearer visually soon , must finish this first

    feedback will help ..
    more progress >>
    im not sure about those purple transparent shield like things inside each circle ... any help ? i was thinking something like that or smthing else sci-fi-ish inside those circles , any help would be great ...

    I like the purple but mainly because it adds some interest. The connections between the circles and the main body could be a bit more secure and interesting- look a bit like they're going to fall off right now - even just another strut or two.

    @ vibhas,

    Cool concept. I like the vortexes in the circles, I think its working. It might be cool to make them glow bright orange or yellow, to make it look more like a "phoenix". Right now it just looks like a cool ship. Also, and I understand if it is too late to try and fix this, but right now, as it sits, its hard to tell which end is facing forward. Maybe try and thin up the front end to make it look a little more "aerodynamic"
