Sometimes I try and do "real art" just to prove to myself that art-ing is a thing I am good at. The results vary from "oh gOD WHAT IS THAT THING" to "ohwow this is so great remind me why I don't take myself seriously again"
This one would be closer to the latter. Maybe a 7?

YAY EXPLAINING THINGS TIME!

Somewhere along the line this turned into a mix of “gripped you tight and raised you from perdition” and “The very touch of you corrupts. When Castiel first laid hand on you in hell he was lost.”

Sooo... Corruption. Yeah.

Cas' sash-wrap-thing is changing from its pristine-pale-blue to ugly-red-orange-burnt-and-deteriorating in the areas around Dean.

And also:

Castiel originally has white wings like all the other angels. When he saves Dean Winchester from Hell, he suffers damages to his wings and they are burnt/beat up. Of course he is used to that sort of thing and starts healing them without a second thought.
BUT!! Something is not quite right here!! The spots where his wings were hurt healed wrong and turned black. So he has white wings with patches of black from where he was damaged in Hell. And Cas says to himself 'Oh well, no biggie, must have been the environment right?'
But then he gets hurt helping Dean with other things and THOSE parts turn black too. Oh noes!!
And his wings change colour feather by feather until eventually they are entirely black.

And that's how Cas got black wings while all the other angels have white ones~

Panic. Pain. Screams. Fire. 
It all happened too fast. Castiel flapped his wings erratically, hoping to get through this entire thing. He was supposed to save a Dean Winchester, he didn't even know who he was, just that it was god's order. And he would never disobey his father. However, there are a lot of things in hell...
Another tortured soul begged to be saved, however Castiel turned and ignored it. It hurt himself to ignore helpless souls, however he was on a mission. And, they were probably there for a reason. His thoughts comforted him for a second, until he was yanked back to reality by another few screams of tortured souls.
Castiel ignored them left and right. Every minute he spent in the hell hole ached his chest. He never wanted to know how Hell looked like. And now he was forced to. Castiel tried his best not to cry. No. He choked back sympathetic tears. He had to show the others he was worth the job.
"Sammy!"
A deep, course voice was heard from a distance, recognizing it, Castiel flew at the speed of sound. He had to get there, he can't let his innocent soul spend another second in this horrible place. Now Castiel understood. "Help me! Somebody!" The voice got more and more desperate, and choked with sobs. Castiel flapped his snow-white wings faster and faster. Begging screams and sobs around him turned into vengeful shouts and curses as the angel passed. Castiel let out a couple tears in all the hate. So much hate. So much terror. So much pain. Sure, Heaven was like that too, for the angels, however not like this. Nothing like this. 
Finally. Castiel stopped unstabily, taking a few seconds to regain his balance. There in front of him, Dean Winchester. He had stopped screaming, and was a trembling mess on dug-in hooks. Castiel accidentally took his time studying him. His dirty blonde hair, short and tousled rested along with his body. Dean's face looked so peaceful, the only diamond in the rough. His naked skin gleamed with sweat of fear, even the way he sighed stood out to Castiel.
The angel shook his head in order to clear his mind. Focus! Picking him up, Castiel gently wrapped his arms around the unconsiouse Winchester. He remembered the tone God used, Dean must have been very important. "Your important to me..." Castiel whispered to nobody in particular, and gawked Dean with his gaze. Yet, that earned him another head shake. FOCUS!
"... sammy..." Dean whimpered, hanging onto Cas tight. He absent-mindingly pushed their noses closer, and threw Castiel's breathing off-schedule. "Mm...." He moaned softly, gripping Dean's shoulder tighter. Biting his lip, Castiel pulled Dean close. "Hold on Dean," he played with his lower lip, grinning when the hunter didn't resist. "I'll raise you from peridition." 
It lasted for about a minute. Their lips locked perfectly, and swiveled to their delight. It was like they were made for each other. Dean made no move at all against it, since hell drained his energy greatly. Castiel had to do all the work. Underneath the action between their lips, the angel pressed his palm tightly against Dean's left arm. The pressure and the excitement caused the print to glow a light blue. The light flakes disipated into the muggy, hell air. Time seemed to stop. The atmosphere around them cleared into light. Growing and growing until engulfing the two into its heavenly glow. Evil souls retreated back, changing their minds and regreting even opening their lips in the first place.

Within the blink of an eye,


Dean Winchester was saved.

This is stunning. The 2 little details I love are the ways Castiel's wings are beginning to singe and the burnt cloth by Dean's feet. Such gorgeous little details that I can't stop looking at.
Absolutely amazing art.

This is actually quite beautiful! I like how you combined the concepts of Rising and Falling. Hopefully they can meet in the middle!

The thing about the wings reminds me of a folktale I have as an illustrated children's book. It's about a blackbird who was born without wings. The other birds didn't know what to make of him, but he didn't mind because they were his friends and they took care of him. One day, a dream granted him wings made of the most beautiful golden feathers, but when his friends saw the wings, they thought he was trying to be better than all of them - That he was trying to be different. So they left him to take care of himself. He was lonely, but his new wings took him far. Throughout his travels, he tried helping animals and humans alike, by giving them his golden feathers to trade for medicines, tools, food, nests, or as tokens for lovers. And every time a feather was plucked, the new feather that grew in was pitch black. When he ran out of golden feathers, he flew to the tree where his friends nested, and they saw that he had the most beautiful, blackest wings. He was still different. But he told them they were all different, because they each had their own memories as precious as any golden feathers. They roosted together that night and every night after.
