Yes it is time for a new phoenix tutorial that I thought I would submit. I was playing around on my drawing tablet (like I always do before drawing something cool), and I started drawing what would turn out to be another phoenix. Now I already have two tutorials on a phoenix, one is called Phoenix rising and the other is called a water phoenix. Today I will be showing you how to draw a diamond chested phoenix step by step. This legendary animal is one of my favorite creatures to draw, I must have draw over a dozen different types of phoenixes over the course of time. I still have my very first sketch book that my parents bought me for Christmas one day. I guess that is when they knew that I loved drawing; well actually they knew I loved drawing when all I used to draw is dinosaurs and dragons when I was a kid. After my drawing technique got better and better I started tackling more complex characters and images that would later challenge me into being a good artist. I am not gonna sit here and say that I am great at drawing because I am not. I will say I am good, I mean there are a lot of talented artist on this site that make my jaw drop when I look at their work. The phoenix is a beautiful mythical animal that has a lot of importance to people that start over in their lives. This fire bird is a symbol of hope and starting a new chapter in life. The city of Phoenix Arizona has this bird as their symbol because they too rose from the ashes after a terrible fire ransacked through their town. If you look at the phoenix you can see how powerful he really is visually. There is so much power and hope in the bird itself that makes him a desirable animal to draw. I approached this tutorial with ease and concentration. I wanted to make a better version of my very first phoenix that I drew a long time ago. I think I accomplished something good with this one. You will learn how to draw Diamond Chested Phoenix step by step. The instructions will help guide you along and you will see just how easy it is to draw. I will be back with more for you all in a bit so stick around artist.

STEP 1.

Start this first step by drawing out a small circle for the head and then add the facial guidelines. You will next draw a small shape for the beak and then the guidelines foe the wings,. At this point the wings look like two swords from Heavenly Sword. Now from the head draw out the shape of the neck as well as the circles for the mid part for the body and then the shapes of the legs and feet.
