:iconhorsesrunfree:
Nice! I love the use of watercolors and pen (ballpoint) make good, strong lines and beautiful colors. Your talent is very evident in the way you drew this picture. The way the subject(s) is/are drawn suggests fluid movement and grace. This may come across to you as cheesy, but, when I see this picture I am reminded of the fact that we're all here for a short amount of time and how we wish to be truly free. The message here, I'm guessing, is that nobody's here forever. But, the phoenix(s) pictured here reminds us that there is a hope of rebirth. The phoenix is one of my favorite mythical creatures because of not only rebirth and new hope, but also second chances.

HOLY! This is my first critique.
Wow, this is by far the best art I have ever seen. The colours
are just beautiful! I love how you blended the water colours
to make such wonderful colours. The line art, and designs
seems so spectacular! To me, this picture seems so inspirational,
and well done. I love how you chose the phoenix
for your project, as it is my favourite mythical creature. You're teacher better give you an A+, because
I would. The designs, and feathers are very eye catching too.
It makes me want to pick up a paintbrush and paint like this.
This picture can make anyone speechless, because you have
real talent, my friend. This picture is way too good for words,
but it would even be more eye catching if it had a background.
Other than that, I love how you water coloured it the most. Once
again, you have real talent. It's wonderful.
Amazing job. :)

Is it alright to make an alpha out of the image that is used to make tags/signatures?

Sorry for the late reply.

As long as no profits are made and I'm properly credited I'm fine with it. :)

Thank you so much for responding.  What I do is only for enjoyment.  I can send you an example of what I do when I make an alpha if you wish.

Were these watercolour pencils? It has that wonderful slightly dusty look. ^^

I love the mixture of different bird feathers in there, very lovely, like a flower arrangement.
