The Phoenixes of Equestria collide with the Dragons once again.

Was quite different again, working on this one.
Like no "clear" focus on a character, rather a general direction. Also just the different bright areas because of Flaming Phoenixes etc. :P
Also trying out working on desktop ratio. But seeing how the size might cause some confusing I'll probably switch to my regular sizes again

Had quite some trouble working out what to do, didn't come out exactly how I expected, but I hope you'll still enjoy.

Approx time:
3,8 hours

I hope you don't mine, but I used this as a cover image for my fic "Phoenix".

Sure, no problem! If there's a credit back then everything should be fine with me :)
I appreciate the heads-up

'I am surprised to report that Equestrian Phoenixes and foreign Dragons are fighting against each-other in a seemingly natural battle. Should we leave them be or intervene in the battle? I decide it would be best to not intervene and advance towards our goal.'

Pretty sure that the phoenixes would be at a bit of a disadvantage even if dragons were NOT immune to fire in the MLP universe (despite how awesome they are). Regardless, this is an awesome pic.

I beg to differ. A phoenix will be reborn stronger after death, while a dragon will not. So phoenixes will win the battle. Also,I can't imagine fire doing much damage to a bird of fire...

I drawn this to portray a clash between the Phoenixes and Dragons from MLP
Like how in S2E21 'Dragon Quest' they don't go along that well, trying to smash their eggs and all
I can see how this might be hard to recognise as MLP though :P I might have to elaborate a bit more on that in the description
