Artwork Description

This is nearly a year old now, but I still like how it turned out and I learnt a fair bit from creating this. =P *Rainbows!!* I drew this as a gift for a friend of mine on deviantART who requested a golden haired boy riding on a flying creature - I wound up drawing the boy riding on a phoenix, flying around Yggdrasil (the world tree) which features in Norse myth. Normally an eagle sits at the top of Yggdrasil, but I changed the rules because I'm biased when it comes to phoenixes! ;P The phoenix, boy and Yggdrasil were outlined with black felt tip and coloured with Prismacolour pencils. Everything else was done in Paintshop Pro 5, including background, light effects and rainbow. ^_^

Love this peice...doing some research for a peice...WOW! Very inspirational. If my peice turns out half as nice as this, I'll be happy with myself...Don't worry not going to copy, just looking for ideas.
