Phoenix by RoCueto Phoenix by RoCueto
Valeria doesn't really know if this is in fact a phoenix, but it's the only regal bird with brazen colored and gleaming feathers she has ever seen. And she's not setting it on fire to find out.

And yes she got up there wearing those heels, that's how she rolls :)

I'm not a professional artist,but there's some tips I think I could give you after my first look. Actually It's painted pretty well. The only few things I'm not sure about (and that could easily be fixed ) are light/shadows and lineart. From the background it seems that the light comes from left top and it's bright,alboust yellow. By knowing this you should paint the shadows of the girl and the bird (also the shadow of the hair casted on her face should be a bit more,try to use diffrent tones for the skin,not only those two). Also the bright parts of Valeria's wearing should be yellowish (maybe but some yellow light on her chick and in the eyes). Last thing: the dress. Her red dress shouldn't have the lineart if you choose to do the rest without it. Keep pacticing. You're on the right way!

That's cute. I like how the phoenix is just looking at her. It's so cuddly-like too!

Phoenix? Not a phoenix? Peacock painted gold? That is the question we all want to know the answer to..... :)

Hi, I'm from :iconcriticoslatinos:
This looks really cute, her pose is lovely and your technique crerating different textures is quite amazing :clap:
My only critique is that I see her head a little big in comparison with the rest of her body (like when I look at her waist and hips).
All in all, a great pic (specially by your coloring technique :) )

Thanks a lot for the critique :)

Her head is big because even if she's conventionally beautiful, she's in that akward teenage phase when some parts of your body are not ideally proportioned so her legs are pretty long and her head, feet and hands are a bit bigger than they should :)

Quite a skilled lass, those things look atrocious to even walk in, no less climb. O.O The bird looks great, as does the lovely young lady.

Well, just one. I did some experimenting with different features while painting it but it was done in one sitting.

This was done really well. I admire people who can color this well on the computer. Specially the bird, very pretty colors. I don't like the black outline on her dress though. It seems kind of out of place since nothing else has a black outline like that.

It's meant to be a seamline but it doesn't translate well so I'll end up editing it and posting the fixed verion soon :)

I couldn't draw birds before this, it's all about looking at birds and trying and if it doesn't come out try again.
