A Phoenix Never Dies by Lienwyn A Phoenix Never Dies by Lienwyn
Right. I was supposed to draw my character Hazard's tattoo and then... things... took turns that I didn't expect :XD:
It ended up being a picture! A... really nice one actually >_>

Hazard is my hobo mad hatter magician ( [link] ) from a roleplay I have together with ~Kladdpapper but before he was a hobo mad hatter magician he was... hrrm... something else.
It's still a secret, alright? :XD:
But it's rather cliché and all that shit, but I want it to be x3

This is a small hint of how he was before anyway, and that's why he doesn't have those purple tattoos on his hands - because he hasn't gotten them yet. And that's also why his hair is so neat :XD:
The simple, censored, version is that some things happened which made him abandon most things he possessed and held dear to instead roam the streets as a hobo mad hatter magician. And he actually likes it, so there's less angst to it than it might seem at first glance.

And yes, he has a Phoenix tattoed on his back, and it suits him perfectly. The quote is something a certain someone told him, and that was the main reason for his descision to become a hobo mad hatter magician (yes, I like that description. You have a problem with that? :threaten: )
Aaaand... yeah. There isn't much more to say about it, except that this is actually rather symbolic and somehow very touching (for me at least)
I can, by the way, say that he made the right choice...

Picturewise... err... well... I can't draw people walking ^^; Even less when you see them from behind, so no need to tell me that, alright?
I like the feathers anyway, since they add some depth and all, and I like his pants... and daggers... and him in general :XD:
Hazard is one of those characters that I just fell head over heals in love with the first time I played him.

Hazard :heart:

I still love that the feathers are differently focused... Creates a very nice feeling ^^
Also, I love how light and faded it is, somehow... and of course, the tattoo - and the guy :XD: - is very pretty.

Thank you ^_^ I was really hoping for that when I drew it.
I just wish that some of the colours had been less intense >_< As it is now they disturb me rather much...

I still like Hazard :nod: And somehow I don't doubt he made the right decision... even though I wouldn't mind seeing him half naked more often :XD:

I like the picture's clean, simple look... even though those feathers had to be pain in where the sun doesn't shine :) The colourscheme is striking... and I love Hazard's hair :3

I like him too :) But really want to draw him as a hobo mad hatter... but the sketch I have lying around is also from his previous life ^^; Ah well...
And I can't guarantee that you will get more of that :XD:

Now that I look back at it, the feathers were actually pretty alright...
But I'm not sure if I like the colour scheme. It's a bit too sudden and intense on certain places.

At least we'll get to know a bit more from his previous life... maybe :P
All the more reason to treasure this one ;)

Nay, it's a matter of tastes. I'm not claiming I'd like this to hang from my wall, but I can appreciate. It's all sharp and clean contrasts, but I can't find a single place that wouldn't fit into the picture as a whole.

Indeed... and now I've planned it all, so now I know of his previous life as well :XD:
Which means that the meaning of this picture became even deeper...

Heh... it's actually hanging on my wall at the moment, although I'm going to take it down soon since I just had it up for fun during a short while :XD:

Goddamnit woman, do you know how pure awesome you are?

I am stunned. This is jawdroppingly beautiful! And I mean it; the overacted, ridiculous, mouth-gaping-and-looking-amazingly-stupid kind!
I love the blurring of the feathers, and the depth it gives the picture. I love how your shading was just enough, so that the brightness leaps out and dazzles, and the contours are all prettiful and, and--- :excited:

Umm... no ^^;
I... seriously don't get why people like this one so much >_> It's really sloppy and... stuff.

But I am very glad that you like it ^_^
I'm actually not complaining, I just don't get why :XD: Or... well... you explain it really well, but I'm not sure if all applies x'D

Thank you anyway *^_^*
Both for the kind words and the fav! :dance:

Maybe darkening the far foot would help with the walking thing?

I love the feathers, especially that wonderful goldesque colouring.

And phoenix do die sometimes....from memory it is a rather long and complicated process. But it is possible. I do have several characters who are no longer willing to go about it again....ever :evileye:

Stabby stabby! :D

Hmm... true... I can try that next time (I don't want to change this picture now)

I had much fun with that :XD:

And of course they die sometimes. But if you feel a need to point that out you are totally missing the meaning of this picture :x It's not supposed to be completely correct but pretty and deep :shakefist: So then I say that they don't die.
(And yes, you can ignore this, I'm just having an increasingly bad day :( )

Yeah, I mentioned I got a tear in my eye when I saw this, because Hazard is so awesome and then the new side of him that made him a bit more cliché, but even more awesome SO MUCH YES.
Yeah, I kinda already said everything, but this is a deep emotional picture yes, and since it even made me weet (lol) I fav it ;D
