i enjoy this painting very much, the way it looks done with Photoshop but then i look closer. The simple colors are just stunning, so much so that the Phoenix really is on fire. Also the shading is great, and he looks so cute, i love him, i just love him so much <3. The impact of the visual look of fire was mostly the reason i enjoy this painting, but maybe you could highlight the Phoenix more. Lastly, you could have given a dark background to truly show the burning ball of fire with wings, and eyes that is a Phoenix.
