I've been really inspired by angels lately and antique paintings so I wanted to emulate that in this image. I wanted my character to be unidentifiable but there to be an elegance to her to I used an image that had softness in posing and with soft fabrics.
I really like how the textures create a background that emulates that of antique studio photography and the lighting while dark makes my character the focal point in this image. I love the vulnerability that she has and sadness about her, which I feel could be interpreted in different ways. But I'll leave that up to you.

I was really inspired by traditional paintings or a painterly style for this image, I was really inspired by the style in which old paintings were painted and I really wanted to emulate this in ‘If these wings could fly.’
I am really happy with this piece and the way it came out, I felt that I was able to emulate the style in which I wanted to achieve while adding a contemporary element.
I used mostly my own stock for this image including texture overlays with the exception of the water droplets and the wings. You can find my beach stock images and textures via the stock and textures folders in my gallery.
