The Firebird and the Princess by AliasForRent The Firebird and the Princess by AliasForRent
Always wanted to draw some kind of giant animal screaming/screeching/roaring at Celestia. I think it's a thing. Also, the bird ain't on fire, forgot about that....well they don't literally need to be on fire to be a firebird right? All phoenixes are firebirds but not all firebirds are phoenixes.

Anyways, according to my head-canon, this happens before harmony/search for (the elements of) harmony. On another note, I really do love Fantasia 2000's Firebird Suite sequence.

Celestia, of course, rightfully belongs to :iconhasbroplz: and :iconfyre-flye:

Edit: AHA! I knew I was forgetting something! I forgot to put celestia's wings! Be right back!
Edit 2: And back with wings!

Replace the Firebird with the Balrog from LotR and you get a much darker and awesome scenario.

If that's what you take from the pic then yes, she is taming a phoenix!

>Overanalyzation time

Seeing as there's a seeming distinction between Firebird and Phoenix, and that this thing is twenty times the size of every Phoenix we've seen in the show, my personal view is that the Firebird is an even rarer, more powerful species of Phoenix, perhaps even a leader of sorts. Celestia had to confront it and reason with it over a millennium ago, in order to form an alliance between their two races, so that nesting ground could be established in Equestria in certain places :3

Anywho, very terrific job ;)

Here I wanted to write about a giant dragon roaring at Celestia...I guess that does make it a thing.

Very dramatic. The color pallet really makes Celestia stand out.

Oh, it's the Sokyoku from "Bleach" in its released form which we saw during the attempted execution of Kuchiki Rukia!

I guess this happens before Ukitake and Kyoraku destroy it by using the Shihoin Shield.

(OMFG!!! WHO LET AN OTAKU IN HERE!?)

I loved the Firebird sequence of Fantasia 2000. Easily the best part of that movie for me.

And nice work on the picture. Very well-drawn.

I agree. That was the highlight of Fantasia 2000, and it was the first thing I was reminded of when I saw this piece.
