This is a re-do of an old 2002 CG I did (seen here: [link] )
I wanted to use the same techniques as the old one.. just... with 5 more years under my belt :D

This thing has been a pain in my butt for a whole week now... just... yeah. This is Raven, a character of mine from HALO, an old comic of mine. Basically.. if ever a story of mine could be called "religious"... in a generic definition of it, it'd be this one.

Notes: no, the wings aren't supposed to be perfectly in proportion/realistic. The bumps on his shoulders are relating to the wings- and are extra bones/cartilage for my made up angel anatomy. Cutting is bad for you, and I don't advocate it. He's evil, and he can't help it.

If you wanna see some closeups, go here: [link]

Painter 9 mostly with Photoshop CS cleanup/lighting correction
Raven me :B
Yes, the title is from the Malice Mizer song.

Nicely detailed and colored. I really like the anatomy and pose of the figure. Very good lighting and atmosphere.

Thank you very much! I went to lengths to make sure the anatomy was correct. Probably one of the most extensive pieces I've worked on to date.

It's the visible breath that seals the deal for me. I don't know why, but that single detail just makes him his so alive!

I'm amazed at the progress you've made!! This newer piece is so much more atmospheric than the old one. And his pose is so expressive. I especially like the hands, I always dig it when someone draws hands well. :heart:

Del-Borovic Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
Hahah, thank you! Yeah, that's why I like to do "re-do"s of old images- it's inspiring to use the same subject matter, for me, and then I really get to compare the new and old. Glad you like. I love drawing hands <3

Woww...=o This is pretty intense and incredible. The blood is realistic enough to make me squeamish, so...good job. o.o -faints-

But my real favorite part is probably the wings or the little red jewel. Or even, blood it may be, the ripples around his knees. Very well done. :D

Del-Borovic Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
Hehehe, thanks! Sorry to make you squirm :B This picture didn't really come together until the last bit of detailing.. so for a while the blood looked purely design-y, but then with those highlights XD it does get to looking pretty gruesome :3

Thanks for your kind comment ^-^
