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:

If the light's inconsistent, I don't see it.

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.
