ONE-WINGED ANGEL by Keitaro333 ONE-WINGED ANGEL by Keitaro333
The story so far:
"God could have created humans perfect.
But then, they would not have helped each other.
That is why these two messengers of god have each just one wing.
In order to fly, they are dependant on one another."

(inspired by a videogame Xenogears)

"He wasnt very cooperative. He refused to give up his ability to fly, defied his Lord.
It was quite expected. But God knew why he had chosen him...
So there was no choice but to take it from him by force..."

and a little description for this particular piece:

"He has won... at least he thought so... but the price he paid was too high.
After all, no one has the power to defy God. The only thing he can do now is to find her..."

Okay, thats that :) Sorry for my bad english.
This is first character of my -angelic- story. It was painted for local Manga & Anime Calendar for the month November. At first, i just wanted to do some bishounen-type 'bad ass' angel :D (though not so thin as many bishies :lol: )
It can be considered manga-style, though not very typical, but there are mangas with similar look...

I'll continue the story when i "recover" from this one :D I too want to know what 'she' looks like :hump: :rofl:

Hope you'll like it.

It took me few dozens of hours which is pretty much, i guess mainly because i was not using any references and was
experimenting around, changing and trying different things. (i hope his pose does not look too awkward or there arent too much anatomic mitakes... :depressed: )
I used Painter 8 and Photoshop 7 with tablet.

Sometimes you just have to sit back and give art the time it deserves. ONE-WINGED ANGEL by ~Keitaro333 is one such occasion, whereby the artist delivers such inspiring technique in the texture appeal alone, it would be a crime not to take that extra time to savour the talent this piece showcases.

Normally, when we write one winged angel, we fall on Sephiroth picture. But when I saw your pic I was "OLY SHIT THIS AWESOME!!!!!"

This looks great, although the full wing looks a little twisted, but otherwise fine! I like the way that the feathers are flying off into the wind, it fits. Great job!
TakashiYee Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2012
Nice work! I can tell that this has a little influence of manga :D
sephiroth-son Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2014

Gorgeous work, but to me, the wing looks like it's in an awkward position.
