A fire phoenix drawn for fun.
I mouse drew a good amount of the bottom fire with the pencil tool, and I think you can tell by the slightly jaggedy lines on some flame edges. The rest were drawn with the pen tool which gave smoother lines, and I smudged a few lines here and there. The glowiness was airbrushed on and the background was a textured fill.
It took a bit to color, but it is overall a rather simple image
