Interesting effect, but the image itself doesn't really "tell a story" or illustrate any type of "fantasy."
It is essentially just a bird gimmicked up with a glow and a bunch of swirly brushwork beneath it.

An effect, does not a "Fantasy SCENE" make. Re-read the contest description, and the emphasis on "scene."

author says:

thanks for the feedback everyone.

Art is hard to present sometimes and to see where the author thoughts are coming from.

The phoenix has long been presented as a symbol of rebirth, immortality, and renewal

this is the story behind my entry.

A phoenix is a mythical bird. It has a 500 to 1000 year life-cycle, near the end of which it builds itself a nest of twigs that then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes. The Phoenix's ability to be reborn from its own ashes implies that it is immortal.

MOSSYB:what feedback do you have for improvement changes?
