So, as many of you already know, this is a remake of an older piece. I drew this
one back in December/January of 2006, and it's actually colored with pastel pencils, not colored pencils. (Notice how different they are in vibrance and smoothness?)
So, I like it. I tried some different coloring approaches that I've been meaning to do, but get bored with. I didn't use one color to blend anything (except the colored sky around the sun), because for most of it, I wanted really different tones. Trying for a more life-like approach, I guess. There's lots that could be improved with this piece, but I like it and it's done cause I can't really change anything anyways. And dorky me, I forgot to include the glow around the phoenix. Yeah, I was mad at myself for that one.
And the lighting tones on the horse were a lot trickier than I thought they'd be, but I think they turned out pretty awesome!
