Ohhhh right, my username used to mean something!
A zine I'm working on wanted a visual representation of the artist and I decided, rather than be lazy and crop one of my older Spyro pieces and be all "Here you go!", I was going to draw some turquoise phoenixes.
Last time I drew my fursona, I wasn't even wearing my prescription glasses, which is a...REALLY long time ago!
I've also lost like 30 pounds and my hair now almost reaches my butt, so some tweaks had to be made.
I also drew some sharp teeth on the bird because I like drawing things with sharp teeth, therefore, a visual representation of an element in my art in that happens a lot.
I know birds don't actually have teeth, but last I checked, birds don't wear glasses or set themselves on fire.
