Sunrise Pheonix by Rick-Lilley Sunrise Pheonix by Rick-Lilley
The Sunrise Phoenix is the first picture I have created that has personal symbolic meaning and represents where I am at this stage in my life.

The Phoenix represents the rebirth of oneself, through the sacrificial burning and cleansing of the old self.
This is a cycle I have undergone a few times in the past, each time taking me higher and to new levels of awareness and understanding!





Tablet: Wacom Cintiq 13HD. (gave up on the mouse, it would have taken forever to complete)
Photoshop brushes: default soft/hard round brush.
Time: about 170 hours.

Beautiful work! And I believe the idea behind it fits very well. There certainly can be a lot of pain and sacrifice involved in the process of personal growth on spiritual and intellectual level.

Very beautiful. With so much detail! This is the first time when I see a representation of a Pheonix which doesnīt follow exactly the popular depiction. You added some new personal elements to the bird, which makes the work even more beautiful! I love it!
