Birth of a Pheonix by EmiliAlys Birth of a Pheonix by EmiliAlys
Hiya guys sorry its been a while :)
Things have been a bit odd over the next few weeks, so I felt like doing some pencil work to get back into the groove and this image came about.

Final fantasy is always close to my heart, they were the first series of games I felt really attached too and still do today.

Can't not listen to the soundtracks without getting teary.

So I wanted to make a tribute featuring my favorite magic users, moogles and chocobos (and an Oglop for luck and some Materia for fun), this was sketched on brown paper then coloured on Photoshop

Very nice composition! I love how expressive the characters are, even the one in the coat that doesn't quite seem to have a face! You have infused the simplest of gestures with meaning. The placement of the characters draws the attention to the egg, as well as their sightlines. My favourite feature of this work, however, has to be the effect that the brown paper gives the whole thing. It gives a sort of antique feel to the drawing. The even colouring that you achieved through Photoshop makes it seem like an old storybook illustration yellowed with age. Very nice work!
What do you think?
