I'm sorry I disappeared for awhile! I just got through with Finals at school. -_- Anyways, this is my first doujinshi submission here, so I hope it turned out okay.

Overall the birds were drawn by me in photoshop (except for their wings and the lil decorative feathers on the phoenix's head and gold tail). The background was a mixture of effects and brushes, but I lost all of the sites I had bookmarked so I don't remember who all was supposed to be credited for the brushes! (please forgive if you aren't mentioned and linked to, but if you notice your brushes let me know and I will correctly link :sweat: ).

Also, this is my depiction of the mythical Halcyon (in real life, the birds that inspired them in stories were the kingfishers). I love these two birds in particular, so I'd wanted to draw them for sometime. The phoenix in particular was inspired by my itoko Morilinde's character.

And here are the wonderful Deviantartists' that created the brushes I used...

    Phoenix! It's a phoenix pic! Wooohooo! XD

    er... *ahem* It's a very pretty picture. I like the birds and the colors. Forgive me if it's a little critical, but are the phoenix's legs a wee bit short?

    I love this picture, at any rate. +fav
