Just as surely as the sun rises and sets, the summer must end. We reap the last bounty of harvest and enjoy the last fruits of life before the world grows sleepy and withers.

I am the Angel of Autumn, the Giving One.

The last of the seasonal angels is here. She also represents my favorite season, a season indicative of piles of leaves to jump into, a myriad of colors in flux, and the energy of change. Autumn also contains All Hollows Eve, my favorite 'holiday'.

She was ironically the last one to be drawn, which I think shows how far I improved even on just a series of four. She's my favorite as well.:)

Simply gorgeous tones. I love the chilly wistful autumn mood to this. Not to mention the beautiful design of her dress!

She's so lovely. I'm sad that I'm currently viewing this on a monitor that isn't friendly to subtle colors, but even so the colors you chose are simply gorgeous and very definitely evocative of the season. :)

love the gradient of her wings! =) actually i guess the whole thing is lovely, the tonalities & sunset shades. altho, idunno, maytbe u might wanna experiment a bit nxt time by having one contrasting color -- like purple -- in that harmonious miasma of red & orange & brown. just a random thought i had as i was running my eyes thru this lovely autumn paradise.

That probably would've helped make the shadows stand out a little bit more. Unlike Summer, I went with purer hues and shaded without using the complementary colors. I decided against that since the other angels were painted with purer hues, which made them a bit more airy and light. I should probably do Summer over again, but I am laaazyXD
