Silent prayers

[EDIT] Color Change. Old version here [link] [EDIT]

Chained in the net and begging for mercy,
Melody sees her feathers falling second after second.
And the cold jail of the wrong heaven
is echoing, with her silent prayers.

Un ange sans ses ailes est un ange qui tombe.

An angel without wings, is an angel who falls.

When I was 17 ( 2002 ), my parents bought me some watercolours for my birthday.
I didn't know how use it but I took a big white sheet, and I did my first painting.
You are certainly wondering why I am speaking about it ( if your are able to traduce my english of course ^^ ).The painting represented an angel hung by some dark ties, in a jail, with a window in the blue background :)

The kanji say: honor, courage, justice, freedom...

I will try to find my old painting ( but this summer, I put my cupboard in order... i am wondering if... hum probably I will never find it ^^; ).

Finally I finished this drawing instead of the tutorial of save our souls, but I promise, be patient :]

Time: Arround 26 hours
Software: photoshop 7

are those actually Chinese words in the background? I can read "hope" and "peace." 
I really really really love how you can express so much in your artwork so delicately and beautifully
