Phoenix Crest by Aerin-Kayne Phoenix Crest by Aerin-Kayne
This is not new - I just modified the center gem (changed the color and area that was colored), and extended the boarder a little bit.
It had bugged me for a while, so I finally decided to change it.

This is a stylized phoenix holding an orobouros (which I made into an infinity symbol instead of a circle). This was done in pencil and then scanned. The colored parts were added later with photoshop.

Before I read the description, I actually thought it was a basilisk. Very nice. And the whole infinity thing, that's in the Wheel of Time book series. Still, really cool man, really cool!

I use a piece of lined notebook paper so that I can fairly accurately measure distances too. There are probably people out there who can do it, but the symmetry isn't only by eye. Otherwise yeah, just art pencils and art paper :)

Oh my, I can't stress enough how much I adore this. The phoenix and ouroboros are two of my favorite creatures, and I actually plan on getting a small ouroboros tattoo in the shape of an infinity if I ever get one, so yes... I absolutely /love/ this.

This is awesome. I love the way, that you made this really look eternal, like phoenixes are. (Borning from it's own fire and the snake as a symbol of eternity.)
