I finished a new piece for my portfolio!
This was a fun one. I've been wanting to do an Illustration of the Firebird for a long time.
I saved a JPEG periodically as I worked, so you can see how the picture progressed. When I was done, it occurred to me that the composition had a sort of twisting shape not unlike the golden section... so I grabbed an images of the golden section from the internet and put it over the picture. It doesn't fit perfectly, but it fits oddly well for something that was not intentional.
Progress photos from sketch to finish:
