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.

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!

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

So, it's mostly going to be about fantasy stuff. I will make sure you are added to the credits list for your art at the end of the video and that you get a link to the video with your art in it. The songs that will be on the video is:

Naturally- By: Selena Gomez
Bet On It- By: Zac Efron (High School Musical 2)
I'm Alive- By: Celine Dion

This looks slightly familiar. It looks like my rp angel that I came up with on IMVU. However its hair is the wrong color...
