Lyrebird as Firebird by Ravenari Lyrebird as Firebird by Ravenari
Lyrebird as Firebird

Based on the Australian lyrebird, this is yet another unusual interpretation of the firebird / phoenix along the same lines as my:

Raven as firebird - [link]
Black swan as firebird - [link]
Duck as firebird - [link]
Pelican as firebird - [link]

Yeah. I'm weird.

pastels, Mi Tientes paper, 21.5 x 29.5 in (55 x 75cm)

I think it's a great idea, and works really well. =) I love the bird's pose with the tail feathers hanging down in front like that. The layout of the background is really nicely done, too.

Thank you! And yeah, I think of a bird that could start great bushfires. I've come up with a few stories for this one. I like the idea that its courtship ritual involves lighting the tips of its tails into flame, and it attracts a female, and then the two of them spontaneously combust together and start the South-Eastern bushfires in Australia...

Ooo wow! I think the pelican is still my personal fave, but probably because it was the first where I knew exactly how I wanted to do it. :D
