Phoenix King by SilentReaper Phoenix King by SilentReaper

:faint: I've been working on this with micron pens on a 18 x 24 sized paper for a few weeks... got lazy at some point....
The large feathers took the longest time.. probably an hour each for one >_<

:blackrose: I think I went through 5 or 6 micron pens (Size 005 and 01)

:skullbones: SORRY FOR BAD QUALITY >_<; Damn Digi-Cam was being... bleh... :skullbones:

I love the drawing, but do you think you can send me either this picture or a stencil of it? so I can use it for my tattoo design?

I like the eyes...they make the creature seem...alive.

The quality isn't that bad, I still tell what every is and the lines on it. Listen, I'm writing this story on Fanfiction.Net in 'InuYasha' in the 'Anime/Manga' Category and I was wondering if I could use (the credit is ALWAYS yours!) your phoenix king as the drawing for my character the Phoenix Lord. I'm 'Kohaku-Lynn-Circus Fraek-76767' and I've wrote/am writing 2 stories, and I'm beginning to write 'InuYasha And The Phoenix Heir' and the Phoenix Lord will play a big part. I would like it if you would keep this here and I'll send my readers here to look at him for the Phoenix Lord's phoenix tranformed style. All the credit goes to you, I did not, in anyway, help you draw it so you have the credit. I am NOT disrespectful. You'll be helping me a gracious awful lot. Thank you for listening.

Who craes about bad quality, this is amazing
GoldenEyes05 Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2008
This is amazing! If you're alright with it I'm strongly considering getting this as a tattoo. I've been looking for a good phoenix design and have been trying to draw my own...and this is by far the best I've seen.
SilentReaper Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
:XD: Someone used this as a tattoo a while back... As like... a tattoo covering his entire back; it was imsane.
But feel free to use! :D

Yay! I love phoenixes, wish I could have one *sigh*. I don't understand how someone can have the sheer patience to draw every single feather for that long. Amazing picture!
Shadowgrail Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2008  Professional Traditional Artist
Jeebus ! k.. that's really detailed. but nicely balanced details. O.o
If I asked to have this tattoed exactly the way it was.. the tattoo artist would probably kill me.
SilentReaper Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
funny cause someone actually DID tatoo this on their back and I have the photo of it.. somewhere... (Cause I didn't believe that he would lmao)

... Wow. Just... Wow. Your amazing, and I've only just started veiwing your arts! *jealous but appreciative*
minesweeperaddict Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2008
I love the eye and the feathers, and the shading.

And he looks in control of everything, even though the medallion he's holding seems to be too heavy.

Great! :3

Your art is so good but I think I like this one most. It's very detailed and well proportioned. Awesome job!

fledglingphoenix Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2007
I originally found one of your comics randomly, and only recently decided to view your whole gallery for more of its goodness when I was drawn to this piece (obviously thats not hard to believe as my username has phoenix in it).

Full View really is the only way to look at it, and I must say that it is exceptional, wonderful, beautiful and profound. I've never really desired to purchase any prints from dA before, but I swear if you made this a print I wouldn't be able to resist.

This piece is absolutely beautiful, though as I haven't gone through the whole gallery yet I may end up saying something similar about another piece. I'm not even an artist, I'm a writer, but this, man I cannot express how awesome it is. It's majestic, regal, and so many other adjectives that I'm at a loss for. There's no part of this that isn't expertly done. I just hope you take my words a truely sincere and not just the rant of some guy who probably has a thing for phoenixes.

Favorited. I think you have amazing talent and dedication. Kudos to you.

Wow, this one is really good! Feathers aren't the easiest thing to draw but you've really done a good work. :boing:

The small view it cool but when you full view this pic is truely breath taking, especially the detail in the features, absolutely stunning, this would be even better colored!

:clap: amazing!!!!!! you are very talented

would it be too much if I asked you to design my next tattoo? =D we could make an exchange, a photo for the design. what do you say. deal :handshake:?
SilentReaper Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
;_; I would, but I don't have time lately @_@ lol Schooool = Horrible :cries:
Arendill Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2007  Professional Photographer
tell me about it, clases are a killer :stab: Im in the same situation, photography school takes all of my time.

still though, it is nice to know you could design it if you had the time. I think we can come to an arrangement when you do have the time. besides, look at the bright side of the situation, youll have a lot of time to decide which photo from my :gallery: you want
