I decided to draw something impractical and purely decorative after going though the gallery of *Wen-M. It was rather liberating. As a subject, I unburied a character named Colbain that appeared to me in a dream in 10th grade and, erm, spruced him up a bit. It was great excercise. :3

It's fun to do totally impractical and decorative from time to time. :nod: The wings are both awesome, and the shiny stuff looks great. But...I feel silly for confusing your "hidden" sig as part of his design. :XD:

Incredible artwork, though the background is a bit plain, it grants full attention to the main piece. This design isn't overly detailed, so the details that are in it are easily noticed.

He looks like the depiction of the types who do not follow a "white" or "dark" path....but both.

Bloody flippin hells 0.0 That's *good* Like everyone else, love the wings, I also like the way you subtly worked in skull designs on the staff and the black wing ^-^

I too, like the specific detail of the wings, but I also must mention that in all other drawings of black and white wings, the white is usually the feathered one. I personally like that black feathered bit and more broadly the uniqueness of this one; I have seen many other pieces of angels or anthros, but this one really stands out. It is a lovely concept and a wonderful picture. Very well done.

You did a lovely job. I love the wings.

Do you ever use him in stuff. Like stoires or RP. He seems like an interesting character to explore.

Nah. I'm not much of a writer and I don't have any interest in rp. Mostly I just draw him as the mood strikes me.

Thanks for the compliments. <3
