Ok, this is not my best.
I wasn’t sure what to do for this prompt word, and my partner suggested a Phoenix.
When I looked at reference pictures, they were all very stylised, so I decided to look at reference pictures of eagles.
Let’s be honest, it’s not a good drawing, but I had fun! Once I stopped caring so much about the outcome it became easier to just have a go and layer different colours.
So, lets pretend this Phoenix hasn’t so much ‘risen from the ashes’ but rather was rudely awaken and super groggy.
