Blue Angel by liiga Blue Angel by liiga
Hey, look, I'm not dead yet! I was only itsy bitsy overworked on my secret projects. ^^

Anyhow, I started this with the intention to draw the largest picture I've done to date, with paying attention to the wings. It went out of hand!! As a result, spent 4 long days on it, but I am SO happy now that I can finally call it (hopefully?) finished.
As for her story - she doesn't have any at the moment. She might be the angel of creation, or another version of Gaia, or someone who's lost her lover. You tell me. :)

This is a muchly downsized version - hence the close-ups.

Medium: Ulead Photoimpact 8, Corel Painter 8, Trust tablet.

Eep. As a writer, you saying "You tell me" on such an obviously awesome piece sends my mind into overdrive.

It's simply fantastic! I really love the way you do the wings... And the sky for that matter. I could just sit here and stare at it. But I won't. I have homework. *sniffle*

And for the record, I see it as a magician or some other magical being giving all their magic in one final spell to save what's most dear to her. Hence the melancholy epression she has on her face.

Just Magnificent piece!

And in only 4 days.... Wow, you certainly DO have patience - it must have meant sitting 4 days straight with teensy breaks for sleep and eating only. And maybe a little bit studying.....

Truly fantastic.... She does look a bit too celestial to be Gaia though - but thats just for my taste probably :)

Well, my question was - what was the original resolution of the picture? The one you worked on?
And - is there a chance to see a larger resolution torso - or at least one of the arms?
Seems like the small resolution must have taken away loads of details, making a figure a bit like Poser-rendered - even though head close-up clearly shows that it does not look that way.

Thanks a lot! The original is 2600x3800 pixels, and yea, I did spend quite a lot of those days drawing, especially th fourth one - started at 7am, finished around 2am, with some breaks for eating. I don't sleep much anyways, so yep. ^^;
I'll upload a close-up of her body right away - I had one prepared, but then I started wondering that perhaps it'd be a bit redundant to upload the close-up... I guess it wouldn't afterall. I think the slightly Poserish impression comes from the colors I used - should've probably made her less pink, I'm still not sure why she turned out that way.

Welcome back! :hug: I haven't seen you for a while here.
Those million feathers again... I can't imagine how can you draw them without going insane, but indeed they are beautiful.:nod: I also like the glow in her eyes. Looks hopeful.

Absolutely magnificent! What a fantastic job, something you should be very proud to have created.
What an incredibly strong and moving feel it has also, very powerful and just really cool I have to say. I think you can definetely see the effort put into the wings, it's very clear how much time you spent on them.
Well done liiga, another beautiful piece! :clap:

Whoa. You've outdone yourself, Liiga. This is radiant. I love how you do feathers. Wonderful job with the human figure, too- did you have a model?

Thanks a lot! No, I didn't have a model, but I did a lot of Googling for references. Also, I've been practicing drawing human faces lately - can't post those works yet though, they'll have to be approved somewhere else first. :)
