Thanks! :aww:

Yes, practice using your tablet, actually unplug the mouse right now and do EVERYTHING with a tablet pen, and soon enough it will be as close to traditional drawing as it can get ;)
There is nothing wrong with your tablet. Practice drawing on paper too, drawing is drawing no matter what tool you use.
And then one day when you have learned how to draw well, buy yourself a new expensive tablet because you deserved it :)

The lighting and the flames look amazing. The gleaming off the feathers are also nicely done.

I think it's really beautiful. I like the balance of sinuousness and sharpness (like the pointed wings) in the image. And the merging of the phoenix and the flames from which it's arising is gorgeous. I added it to my wishlist since I have no money. :-(

Nice, I like it a lot. The wings are done perfectly, the body of the phoenix seems simple but elegant and the flames are fitting well. The colors give it the final, hot (!) touch and really add to the mood. Good job, even if this is unusual. But personally I think that it is sometimes necessary to think outside the box and do something completely different for a change :)

Thank you! :bow:
I was afraid I'd do something wrong, because everyone knows what a Phoenix looks like, but I saw so many different versions I decided I'll make it completely my own, without relying on references.
I agree, it's great to add variety and, but sometimes I'm afraid my work is too much "all over the place", like 5 different people did them :)
