First, thank you for making this community. I am so glad to find one that is for digital and digitally created artwork.

So, here is my first contribution.



The Fenghuang (Phoenix) symbolizes the union of yin and yang. It appears in peaceful and prosperous times but hides when trouble is near. According to tradition, each part of Fenghuang's body symbolizes a word, the head represents virtue, the wing represents duty, the back represents propriety,the abdomen says belief, and the chest represents mercy. The Fenghuang represents the Yin of the Yin Yang symbol (The Imperial Dragon being its opposite). It is often described as a composite of many birds including the head of a golden pheasant, the body of a mandarin duck, the tail of a peacock, the legs of a crane, the mouth of a parrot, and the wings of a swallow.

It's also called the "August Rooster" since it sometimes takes the place of the Rooster in the Chinese Zodiac.
