I drew this mythical bird for a very close friend of mine that has been through a lot, but always seems to emerge from the pile a new person. I am so proud of him for not stopping until he found happiness. I am so blessed to call him my friend.
I outlined this with fineliners and colored it initially with color pencils. After that I decided that the sparkle of the gel pens would make this creature just POP! I think I was right. He loved it and it now hangs in his office!
