Transitioning Phoenix WIPTheFNG 11-26-2013

This is my second phoenix.  My first is a frostheart, but I wanted to do something different with this one.  I saw an idea to paint them as in transition from fiery to frosty.  This my first take at it, and I'm ok with the progress thus far.  I'm still stuck on how to paint the head and what to do with the base.  I also need to go back in and work on the transition from blue to red. Just thought I'd share.

“Thus we may know that there are five essentials for victory:
1 He will win who knows when to fight and when not to fight.
2 He will win who knows how to handle both superior and inferior forces.
3 He will win whose army is animated by the same spirit throughout all its ranks.
4 He will win who, prepared himself, waits to take the enemy unprepared.
5 He will win who has military capacity and is not interfered with by the sovereign.”
― Sun Tzu, The Art of War

Very nice colors, and very nice pain job. But as you mention, the blue and the red needs more blending.

The idea is great - but it's gonna be tough to get just right. Perhaps involve the base of the miniature also. Så that the front of the base i frozen and the back is scorched.
