So I've managed to finish this drawing at last. Took me long enough^^ I tried a different style, I drew mostly insead of painting. It was a cool experience and I learned at lot, but I don't think that I'll do this again :D
Time: ~ 15 hours

Credit for the beautiful reference photograph ( [link] ) goes to the wonderful *ellessilver! Thanks for allowing me to use your photo as a reference :hug: !

[Edit:] Fixed some mistakes!

A dazzling digital painting. The form of the piece is done very well, with the appropriate amount of detail and shading. Within the subject itself the shadows and forms were defined very well. However, the background does not blend well into the subject, making the angel pop out too much. The back of the pillar, for example, would look much better with darker shadows, and the piece would feel more real if the green light were reflected lightly onto the surface of the figure as it would naturally. It feels as if the angel was entirely separate from the background, when instead it should be blended into it. However, all in all it's definitely a memorable piece.
What do you think?

Wow! The detail in the creases and the clothing is brilliant! I suck at clothing but you've done well with all the drapes and folds!

Thank you so much for all of your nice comments and the critiques! Drawing the folds was pretty difficult and time-consuming, so I'm glad you think so^^

It was worth it in the end :)

The contrast between the gold and the green is so strong and lovely.

The detail of the folds is exquisitely and delicately done - I love it! One suggestion I'd like to make is maybe the wings should be a bit sharper/clearer? Next to the sharp detail of the folds of her dress, they look very soft (although maybe that was your intention?).

Anyway, great work! :glomp:

Thanks a lot!

I really like how the folds turned out, too :)
Yes, you're right, the wings and the socket should be a bit sharper! They were supposed to be a little bit softer than the rest, but not as much as this. Although I'm too lazy to change that now, thanks for pointing it out!

Thanks again! :hug:
