Phoenix


Two questions:

1. So, what's the reason for both the green and red phoenix costumes? It can't be simply so toy companies can sell chase figures. But I never ventured to find out for myself.

2. How the hell do you paint convincing fire? Anyone know of any good tutorials? I'm afraid my sad attempt simply isn't cutting it.

The End

Green Phoenix is Good

Red Phoneix is Dark Pheonix (evil)

I used this tutorial for fire and I think it served me pretty well here.

Hi Lauren,

Nice Phoenix Image. I like the lighting a lot. As far as fire goes, it's a tough one. I guess the trick is to use saturated reds as your base color and build on top of that with less saturated oranges and even less saturated yellows (almost white) as you move towards the top of the flames.

This video by Jeremy Vickery from Pixar is quite good for understanding color:

Also I finally got my copy of Wonder Woman 2 disk DVD last Friday. You did an awesome job!! Great movie and I like the more adult humor that was written into it.

Cant wait to see what you do on Green Lantern.

Thanks for sharing.

i think you're too hard on yourself. the whole thing is awesome!! i love it.

I think the flames themselves look okay. But I do think that a darker colored background would make them stand out a bit more and give them more definition on their own without you having to add it.

wow, i am blown away by this one. good job, lauren. i can see that you have a good flow going. i dont think you should worry about your colors, theyre awsome.

That's a cool fire tutorial, It's like the 3rd or 4th different one I've seen (PS is awesome!). I think the fire you did works great on this peace. because my eye goes right to the phoenix. Also that cooler red on the top was a nice choice it really makes her POP!
love it.

A little to add on the Green/Red Phoenix question. I believe it was a visual reference for the reader to understand Jean Grey's psychological state.

Green matched the original Marvel Girl's costume to bring familiarity to the reader that it was still Jean Grey; just updated. Then the costume changed to red to symbolize that it isn't Jean anymore and the Phoenix Force is in total control. So all future renditions of the character would use those color templates as easy reference points for returning readers.
