Colored the lineart:

first my idea was to make it a tattoo design, but i think it got too detailed for that :O

maybe it could be a t-shirt design or something :)

I like the detail in the feathers and scales they pop out more in this picture than in the original multicolored one. It is beautiful as is all your artwork. My favorite part is the phoenix, where the red tips of the feathers blends gorgeously into the orange of it's wings.
So cool!
The blackish body of the dragon brings out the contrast in the fire along its back. It looks so realistic, like you sketched it from an actual scene of the fight.
I also like the Phoenix tail feathers, they flow in various directions suggesting potential movement. Cool!

On the Pheonix- I love the detail in its feathers, and the basic design, especially the crst and tail feathers. It would have been interesting for the eye to stand out and express emotion, but over-all the head is well-formed. The wings however, look somewhat disjointed from the body at the shoulder, not extremly noticeably, but they appear to be at a somewhat awkward angle to the body.

On the Dragon- I love the fire/mane running down the body of the dragon, particularily at the tip of the tail, but at the same time, i find it odd that the flames seem to be pointing in every direction. In my experiance, flames that always reach up give a more realistic impression on the veiwer. I also your detail in the scale work of the dragon, but wonder at the positio of the whiskers/feelers. What are they doing out there?

On the Whole- I like the general positioning of the two creatures. It truly gives the impression of movement. The mirroring positions of the talons/front legs also give the idea of combat. I think it would have been interesting to see more of a contrast in colors between the two to solidify the "clashing" part, but in all I like this piece.

This is amazing and beautiful. I would really love to use this or a similar design for a tattoo I'm getting on my back, though would be more tribal. Would you mind at all if I were to use it (and post and credit you of course : ) ) ?
