When I Touched the Sky by celesse When I Touched the Sky by celesse
Coming back down is so hard.

My personna has mini wing tattoos. Oh, the originality! But I don't care, I love them anyway. :P I'd get them myself if I were up to enduring the pain to get them.

I did this pretty much to see if I could. The right wing is a little off, but I don't care enough to go through the pains of fixing it. The necklace chain also lost it's detail when I shrunk it. I'm sure there's other errors as well that I'll notice later, but for the most part I'm happy with it.

Done in Painter.

I actually have her tattoos, and I've just discovered your artwork! Love her, and keep it up! Very awesome work <3

The tattoos can become real wings. I'm guessing

Hi Celesse, I just wanted to ask permission if I could use the tattoo design on her back for a stencil? I'm planning to get a tattoo this Summer. :D

Wonderful. I love how the feathers look like they're made of light.
Lowee333 Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2007
Tattoos arent that bad on the sholders like that. Its kinda like getting poked with a sharp pencil for the first five min. but after that you barley notice it.
xxCrimsonCloudxx Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2007
The white of the feathers is really beautiful. As is the green of her eyes. It's all very pretty. I love it so^^

Lovely use of earthen tones combined with the brightness of the white and the green of her eyes.
maeoneechan Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2007
This is gorgeous! I have mini wing tattoos :o I got mine in August before school. It was painful when I was getting it done, but it didn't hurt when they stopped though XD;; Stunning artwork yet again!

I like how the feathers and her wing tatoo's seem to glow with the same light. lenoir-whittlethorn is right, it looks like its from a movie or a game!
Sky-81 Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2006

so beautiful. i like so much your tatoo. but i don't understand... it's colored or it's in b/n??
makkhi Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2006
your coloring and style of drawing is so magnificent! :XD: i really love the effects and the feathers. ^^
lenoir-whittlethorn Featured By Owner May 26, 2006
wings are beautiful. i myself have an obessesion w/ 'em. lol i love the tone of this. it looks like it came from a game or a movie! awesome job!
anigym6 Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2006
OMG...this looks like an anime movie screenshot! The glow on the wings and feathers is perfect. Fantastic perspective, and I love the dark, yet hopeful and relaxed mood this has. It's almost like she's leaving an area she just saved w/o expecting thanks or recognition, simply happy that the community's alright. What a great piece! :+favlove:

I absolutely love this piece! It's gorgeous! The feathers are excellent and I just love the wing tattoos! They're fantastic! And yes, getting that tattoo would be quite painful....I've got a butterfly on my ankle so I can just imagine what it would feel like to get one on my shoulder blade....eek! Definitely a :+fav: !!!
