Phoenix by liiga Phoenix by liiga
And so I celebrated my birthday by drawing a hot guy. Yay! This is for the upcoming online zine, EMG-zine - the January theme is 'Phoenix', and it'll be out Jan1, so stay tuned! ^^

Corel Painter 9, Wacom Intuos 3
Two days and I dunno how many hours, 'cause I was half asleep through most of it. ^^'

A fantasic work. What i like the most is the glow of the body, and the posture. It looks like rebirth, you know? And the splashes of lava look so real, i can almost HEAR it. Positively awe-inspiring.

WOW! When did you get Painter?? I'm jealous.....I was dismayed when I saw how much it cost. AWESOME piece...I love the molten effect...how DID you do it??

liiga Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2005
Thanks! ^^ I got Painter a fairly long time ago, not entirely sure when - got lucky, it was a gift. :) As for the molten effect, much as usual - 1) scribbles 2) an excuse for refinement. I'm using acrylics wet detail brush and grainy water blender. All in all, I dunno, it just came out like that on its own! :D

"And so I celebrated my birthday by drawing a hot guy. Yay!"
I guess everyone has their own way of celebrating things XD!!! :hug:

The lava and the hot man look great! Mmmm... burning particles :3
Something is bothering me about the shape of his body... but I'm not too sure.. it's prolly nothing >_>;;

He's so hot his nipples are on fire! :flame::fear::flame:

Good luck with all your stuff! :glomp:

Wow. I just love the piece! It's so dramatic. I love how it looks like he's breaking out of the ground and the contrasting colors work so well for it (well, not contrasting colors, but light and dark). Very inspiring.
