Xavian & the Phoenix

Here is my progress on the Phoenix poster. I’m currently on day 3 of working with this and I’m loving the results. I really sat down at my laptop and went to work. Researching bird’s anatomy which included an eagle, hawk, and I believe a hummingbird? Don’t quote me on that last one.  I did some more research on Phoenixes and discovered that it is “believed,” not 100 percent certain, to have originated from Ancient Egypt. It was usually depicted with the halo of the sun behind it or on top of its head. In early christian literature they are shown to also have the halo of the sun and sun rays coming from behind it. So I incorporated that into my work and it has helped bring out the Phoenix.
