Kinda reminiscent of Jacob's ladder from the Bible, although that's not what I was thinking of when I did this picture. The angel is supposed to be androgynous.

Yes, I know the lighting is inconsistent... XD

EDIT: Added more details to the clouds~

Omg this is awesome. Gloomy yet with a speck of colour and light. I love angel themed images. The clouds are amazing too.

This image gave me chills. Just the lighting, the colouration, and the story that came to mind when I saw it was amazing. Very lovely and amazing job! :heart:

The lighting on the girl is fine. Not so consistent in the rest of the picture, though!

Just a little bit closer...


It looks like the girl wants to ask it a question...

will it answer... or fly away like most birds do...

looks really good keep going...

I'm more saddened by how the angel hasn't even noticed the girl. She/he's just chilling with the birds while the girl is struggling, risking her life to get closer.

And thank you :)

Thank you. This is one of those pictures that can have very different meanings to different people. What's your interpretation of it, if you don't mind sharing it with me? :)

the colder it becomes at the top, the less equipped you'll be except with wits and courage.. The crane is lighter at the top and can take less weight, hence the discarded shoe.. She is almost there, yet the target is eluding her, and illuding her with the freedom of the birds..

All the details in the clouds... it takes my breath away. Sure, the focus may not be on that, but i love how it was done. How you were able to make it look dark to light, and all the colors in between to give it a sort of majestic feel. On top of that, it looks like a storm is just clearing up. Really, a good job indeed.

The figures are also well done. It seems as though a tone of detail when into them, figuring the shading and the proportions. You really get a feel for what the girl is thinking, seeing the other figure in the distance. While the figure gives off a mysterious feel to it.

I love it! Keep it up, it's always nice to see these kinds of pictures from you.

Thank you. :) I do think the sky is the best painted part of the picture; the angel, the girl and the cranes aren't as good in terms of coloring, although they serve a crucial purpose for storytelling and overall composition.

Oh I think they were very well done. To color in that kind of lighting it's kind of hard, especially with the sort of aspect that you gave them.
It was really well done and it does show the story quite well.

She's not falling yet. She dropped her shoes before she got to where she is. XD (In case it's not so obvious, the crane she's standing on is almost horizontal, so she can actually walk on it instead of having to climb it)

oooh I thought she was falling from the crane and the prespective was from the floor ,you know what I mean?
Now I understand the effects etc even if I missunderstood at the beginning :D

Yeah, it's really confusing, especially with her hair and her skirt blowing in the wind. It kinda looks like they're blowing upwards because she's falling.

Well, the perspective isn't really different from this picture. [link] Plus you can tell it's the wind because the angel's hair is blowing in the same direction.

I mean prespective+wind blowing+structure make me felt it was falling ahah
Anyway I just took a look to that angel...Isnt it weird?I mean he/she has wings on his front?I thought he just had hair in his face and that was the back,but I looked at this legs,and arms...What about him/her?

I'm beginning to think there's something wrong with your eyes... XD [link]

Speaking of the angel, that's another reason why it's clear she's not falling. The angel is standing and is seen from the side, not from below. You can't have one person standing and another person falling when their bodies are parallel.
