We should have known...


Full view if you'd like to see the details.

No-one in particular, just a character that's been bugging me for the last few weeks and omg he doesn't have red hair. It's dark brown!

Attempted to draw an "exciting" perspective. Felt dizzy most of the time while drawing. XD After that Birdcage picture I had sworn to myself that I wouldn't drawn anything that detailed ever again. But do you see that policy working? =_='

Metal wings and wires.


Photoshop CS2, Wacom tablet, around 40 hours over 1.5 month period of time.


A huuuuge thank you to my sensei ~shakken who has encouraged me to continue with this work and add more depth to the composition. He has also provided me with lots of links to inspirational army movie clips on Google Video XD [it's hard to find these things with dial-up].

Oh yes, and thanks to ~rayk for teaching me the importance of drawing environments. It's very important!


~virgin-stock for the pose; thank you for finding it for me.

Finally, a dark angel character that doesn't look like he came from some "i'm instantly good-looking to everyone that sees me" heaven. He's awesome by himself, man. It's just a cool pic to look at. The ferocity of the fire really clicks with me too.
Toey Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2008

I know you take commissions, but would it be possible to 'order' this one? I'd love to get a high res copy so I can make a print.

Best pic on deviantart :)

Jiuta Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2008

Well it IS true - I'm Russian and I draw stuff.

I haven't really drawn anything "amazing" lately because of the stupid HSC. Hopefully I won't have to learn how to draw all over again... *FAILS*

Beautiful image! :rose: - Fav!
IncognitoNinja Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2007
This is beautiful, to say the least. If I ever sat down to do such detail ... Well, I can't, medication doesn't allow me to sit for that long, and do something so complicated. I can't concentrate and such. Moving on, it's amazing. Nice job.

How'd you pull off such good freckles? (if you dont mind me asking cuz I have a character w/ them)
Garv101 Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2007
I don't see that "details" policy working at all - and thank goodness cuz this is amazing work.

The dizzying perspective and the incredible environment details really make this pop; that was 40 hours well spent ;)
RedPanda14 Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2007
I LOVE this! it totally rocks! <33
Jellomix Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2007
I love how you did character and the city behind him being destroyed. The details in the colouring is very impressive too... but the angle is a bit weird. Oh well, all the more interesting! :+fav:

ps. The freckles are adorable.

I love his wings.
Catfought Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2007
I've been staring at this piece for a verry long time. It's absolutely gorgeous.
I've recently been interested in drawing humans, and I came across your work.
It's stunning, although you've probably heard that before. He looks so real.

He actually looks like this guy I know. Har har.
The blood was great too.
Still gawking. :]
mcrluv12 Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2007

teknoarcanist Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2007
<3 the wings, not so much the freckles, but that's the only small criticism I could think of. This is an amazing piece.
