Calais Angel by capsicum Calais Angel by capsicum
I was in the middle of another Care Bear when the Garbage song "My Lover's Box" started playing. Because of the lyrics which go "Send me an angel to love. I need to feel a little piece of heaven...", I immediately thought of Halo and stopped drawing Tenderheart and started drawing a torso. (I always start with the torso. Usually the shoulders.) But when I went to add Halo's head, annoyingly, it just didn't fit. I figured that Calais is my next most angelic character being birdy and all, so I drew his head and, hurrah, it worked.

I know this isn't very refined but I like it. I don't often leave pictures in this state but sometimes it's good to be more loose. Sometimes I think I overwork things. One day, I'll draw a chibi Calais. *sigh* My list is neverending.

~~

BTW, I'm well aware that the majority of you are watching me purely for the chibis but it's nice to take a break sometimes and draw things that are for myself and my own enjoyment rather than what I know people want to see. So... nuts to you! <3

This is quite well-drawn. I'm seriously considering loosening my overall drawing style in a similar manner.

wow I think its interesting to know you always start with the torso. *thinks*
I wonder if things like that really are an expresion of what we find important or most attractive?
ooooh and I love to see your non-chibi stoof xD more!

capsicum Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2005
Could be, could be... I do find torsos attractive on males. But my favourite things are a good set of arms and shoulders and now that I think about it... I kinda do start around the shoulder area. XD Weird. I'm glad some people appreciate the non chibi stuff! <3

Well, unless you're an avid follower of my gallery you wouldn't know who he is. Calais is my own character. I did a face piccy not so long ago which you may or may not have seen.

But this picture and the face picture are the only two I've submitted even though I've probably drawn him more than any other of my characters. :3

Your chibis are cute, but those are not the only stuff you can do - in fact I enjoy your more 'normal' artwork even more than the chibis. So a doodle like this is a nice change, you should do this stuff more often, finished pieces which show the great skill you have. :)

Indeed it would. It'd also be cool to see a finished full body pic of Calais. And a chibi of Calais and one of Istas. Argh. v_v

Awww capsicum, I like to see any drawing of yours, regardless of style! It's true that your chibi drawings are very cute, so I understand that some people prefer those pictures from your gallery.

Anyway, he's handsome :D... I like that. Some of my guys tend to be rather effeminate XD. I don't know how you can keep them good looking and manly hahaha.

And, I also admire how you can keep your drawing loose, something that I don't seem to be able to. Good job!

Thanks! It's nice to know some people enjoy looking at my work regardless of what the subject is. :D

Haha..."good looking and manly". XD I guess because IRL I am attracted to manly guys? Hehe. I think I used to draw more effeminate guys but then as I progressed they became more manly.
