Phoenix by sheorun Phoenix by sheorun
size: 14cm from top to toe

This is one of my favourite pieces. But it's also the one that took me by far the longest time to get the right materials. It was so hard to get the colours I imagined. Believe me or not, I have searched three years to get those great beads: high-quality japanese delica beads. I have not worked with them before, but they instantly convinced me. The quality of these beads is simply outstanding. So, to all the beaders out there: Try them out, they are worth their money!

The colour concept of the bird is fully done by me, I only used some guidelines for the body itself. I tried to make it look like a flame, as a phoenix always goes up in flames before it is reborn from the ashes. The branch it is sitting on is also done by me without guidlines.

Woa :wow: my first DD! Never would have thought of that!! So many many thanks to =Soulia for suggesting and `UnicornReality for featuring!! :huggle:



Guidelines out of: Torsten Becker, Fantasy-Perlentiere (Motive aus Mythologie und Fantasy), Frechverlag

Phoenix by ~arctic-predator the colours are so well matched, beautiful. ( Suggested by Queen-Soulia and Featured by UnicornReality )

I have that phoenix from that book, differently coloured too.
So this piece doesn't really overly impress me
in matters of originality and technique.
I'm quite sorry, to be so stern over it.

The way you present it makes this piece, though.
With the dark background and the beads you chose for the body,
the phoenix shines and looks absolutely fantastic.
And the various angles show all the beauty of this piece.

In terms of presentation and as it's accurately done,
I don't see anything to be improved there.
But like I said before, it would be much more impressive,
if you designed an own concept for the body.
What do you think?

Usually something like this takes about a day to do, but since I tried a lot of colour variations it took me twice the time

i was wondering how you made the tree? can you tell me how?please?
Reply
:iconsheorun:
sheorun Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2012  Student General Artist
of course i can :D you start off at the leafs you take one piece of wire, add some beads (I personally took five) in the middle, and then start twisting the two endings of the wire. But only so far until the next branch would start off. You do the same with this following one and then you have four endings of wire you can twist until you want the next branch to add. You go on like this until you're done and happy with your result :)

I hope I could describe it understandable enough, if not just keep on asking ;)
