When Fiery Met Icy by DigiFuMaster When Fiery Met Icy by DigiFuMaster
Ice is broken and hearts are on fire during a chance encounter between the fiery Phoenix an ice dragon prince among icy mountain peaks at the break of dawn.

Here's my contribution for The Great Valentine Exchange. Please excuse my lack of logic (legend says the Phoenix burns up & dies when it's on fire, before being reborn). Well, 1) I thought it'd be "cool" to make a symbolic pic rather than an encyclopedic diagram 2) in this universe she (yes, I gave it a gender, here) flames-on when amorous 3) maybe she's been "dying" to meet the prince, anyway? ..sorry

I wanted to go for a Fire & Ice theme, with a dragon ('cos it's that year :)), I chose western versions of the creatures so I can "fire-up" the phoenix and "red-bull" the dragon, giving it wings that sort of mirror the phoenix's. And, I don't know if you noticed or not, their poses are meant to resemble a heart shape :).

Inspired by similar art including those by the excellent :iconkiyarasabel:, [link] & :iconrattlesnakedefender:, [link]
