Earning His Wings by Caelkriss Earning His Wings by Caelkriss
This one was done specifically for John Howe's forum. Thanks, Starry, for encouraging me to get back into it. The forum is always a great source of inspiration.

I love the perspective on this, I have never seen an angel drawn from this angle.. or an angle drawn from this angel (just to confuse you!)
Was this inspired by JH's drawing of Gabriel? I found that picture really inspiring, I then went into an obsession of angels :D
What is your username at the forum? I haven't seen you around I don't think *shrugs*

My forum name is Caelkriss... and I haven't been active on the forum for a couple of years, unfortunately. I'm trying to finish up college, and it's taken all of my time away from my art stuff. :(
I'll get back to it soon though. Thanks for dropping by!

I can't think of anything that hasn't been said already. I do believe Starry stated it the best.
So I'll say *It is beautiful. Instant +Fav*

By far my top pic at the John Howe forum for this months theme.

HUGS!!

Absolutely stunning work - he looks so serene and contemplative. I love how the wings for a sort of border. And the hair is gorgeously rendered - looks so soft. The first thought that struck me when I saw this was the archangel Gabriel. *shrugs* :)

You mean, this was done YESTERDAY?!?!?!

:faint:

Divinely magnificent. Tim, I'm feeling like I'm in your picture. I step a bit closer... I'm standing right in front of him. I know I can go closer. I'm under the protection of those white wings. It's very shiny and secure, his wings smell of light.

I don't dare to turn my face, the light reflecting on him is just too enormous for my human heart. I know what he's staring at.
