RISING PHOENIX 2.0
RECREATING AN OLD FAVORITE
One of the most popular pieces I've ever done is Rising Phoenix. I get inquiries on a regular basis to recreate it, but have never really considered it until recently. Part of the reason for this is that it's a very complex, time-consuming piece, and part of it is because I have always been hesitant to try to make a copy of it. Recreating artwork - especially one this precisely made - is difficult at best, and I always worried that it would prove to be a disaster.
Well, after a series of requests, I finally decided to go ahead and do it. This is the result. It was really really tricky getting the rainbow loops the same size and in the same location! But in the end I think that it looks pretty close to the original. I think my favorite part about recreating Rising Phoenix was that this time around I had a lot more skill under my belt and I enjoyed the process of making the flames a lot more.
