Phoenix Tears by maggock Phoenix Tears by maggock
The phoenix cannot heal herself, she can only take the pains of others until she dies, and is reborn.

Absolutely beautiful! So far it's my fav phoenix (well maybe aside from the one I textured on my page not long ago). Stunning work!

This looks beautiful~ Rarely see an artwork of a Phoenix crying to heal someone, so this is great view of one.

Don't see many pieces that portray the healing aspect of the Phoenix. Nicely done!

This piece is lovely. I remembered seeing it but never favourited it and just now found it again. I totally though though I had seen this in the DD section.

I think this one is just absolutely stunning! Very lifelike, the tears make extra beautiful. You can actually feel this phoenix's sadness :'-) beautifull, just beautifull.

No.... she cannot heal herself.... only others. My words of encouragement seem to work in the same way. I have healed MANY of my friends. But it is in my friends' happiness that I myself am healed. And my words seem to often work in nearly miraculous ways. But I don't hold back my heart with my friends. That may have something to do with it. ;)

I recently wrote a poem based on one of my fantasy stories. I am new to DA, so I haven't gotten everything up here yet. But the tears of the 'Phoenix Queen' sounds very similar to what you were originally going for here. I can share this with you upon your request, maggock. I don't want to bother you though. Your art is absolutely superb. And it brings back many of my plotlines and metaphorical language from my own fiction. This seems from a very deep heart as well. I hope your art works a 'magic' even like my own words, spoken and written, continue to do.

It's beautiful, and breath taking. I have a phoenix as part of my tattoo.
Mel32-32 Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2010
Very good. the only thing I could detect is that the background colors are a bit too much like those of the focus (i.e. the phoenix.). I don't know if you did it that way on purpose or what, but otherwise, beautiful. The feathers and the details, especially.
mariaRA Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2010
it's beautiful!!!!!
WoWNerdsRule3 Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2010
this is a nice piece even though the pheonix is sad and crying.
WhiterShadeofPail Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2010
You know, this is one of the very first digital art pieces I saw when I was little that inspired me down the digital art path. I even printed out 2 of your other pieces and tucked them away in a folder that I only recently came across the other day. I decided to go online to find who made these inspirational drawings and I finally found their owner on deviantart. Thank you for this :)
Excellent work here.

She is beautiful and magnificent and it break my heart because she still has to suffer before she can be at peace again.

Great Phoenix, you are big artist. Amazing coloring and very accurate job. Fantastic magic bird - the eye of Phoenix are very natural and realistic. The backgraubd is too maiestic.... Fantastic, simple and misterious beauty....^_^
