This image isn't finished yet .... and i don't really know what i'm going to do to finish it!!
The phoenix was cut out of black paper and originally going to be surrounded by cut layered fire made out of paper that has been painted with red yellow and gold .... But that didn't work. Looked way too confusing and i lost much of the detail on the tail.
So for now, its just going to stay like this .... until i can find something that works with it.
