Halo by capsicum Halo by capsicum
So I finally finished this. I don't know if I even like it anymore. I think I've been staring at it for too long. I often feel "meh" about work I spend a while on. :-/ And for some reason it came out too blurry. o.O

He has two wings because I thought it would look cool no matter how impractical it may be. :P I don't know if I'll keep the two-wing thing for future pics, though.

Enjoy. :3

Uploaded a higher quality, bigger version. I think it's better now. A bit. It's the best I can seem to get. Whenever I reduce the image size, I can't get it to stay at it's original level of clarity. Oh well. And there's no way I'm uploading that because it's HUGE.

Oddly enough there are angelic beings that have more than two wings. The angel rank of seraphim have six! Great artwork. :thumbsup:
capsicum Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2005
Really? I did not know. But then, I don't know much about Angels and stuff. It's something I'd like to read up on. :3

This piece is stunning as well. Great body structure, beautiful wings. The background looks a little simplistic for the character, but it's welcome as well since it's not taking your focus away from the character, but leading you toward him. The color is perfect once again. He's amazing. :blushes:
capsicum Featured By Owner May 6, 2005
I'm really happy with the background. This is definitely the most complex background I've ever done and I'm SO proud/happy of how the rocks/cliffs came out. :)

OMG!*__* that's gorgeous!!!
The shading and the coloring you did are immense!!!*drools*
Gotta fave this one, it looks great!:D
blanched-moo Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2005
Wow! That's amazing! I absoloutely love it.
The skin tones were used nicley, and the anatomy is great. The hair and clothes were done nicely and are very well done, the clothes are brilliant, the whole uniqueness of them, I love the imagination you put into this.. the outcome was definately worth it.
I like how you didn't put shoes on him, that would have been a disaster, but the bandages are a nice touch. Good thinking.
The setting.. Wow, the setting.. me, I can never, ever do a bacground, can't do then to save my life. But this, it looks carefully thought out with a bit of twists, it is a great idea.
The wings are amazing, nice colours used and great use of light on them, makes it look more dramatic.
I like the simple pose of just standing there, it gives the impression of he's shocked, annoyed or angry, and judging by the clenched fists, he doesn't look to happy.
I like the arm bands and the bracelets,
The halo os nice, simple, and best - leaves a ring of highlighting on the hair, makes it look more realistic than it already does (despite the fantasy of it).
Truely, truely amazing. I love this. Absoloutely adore it.

capsicum Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2005
Aww, thank you! Comments like this really make my day. I appreciate them so much more than one word/sentence comments. :hug:

The reason he (and most of my characters) doesn't have shoes is because I don't like shoes. Not even for myself. I walk around bare-foot 90% of the time. :D

Thanks for the watch, too! :heart:
blanched-moo Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2005
Heh, it's not a problem, glad I made someones day :D
Yeah, walking around bare foot is so much nicer.. instead of having your feet cramped into shoes *shrug* Ah well.

I know exactly what you mean about working on the same piece of work for along time, as I have spent 50+ hours on a large detailed drawing and when I finally finished it I disliked it.
I love those wings beautifully detailed feathers.

How beauitful. You did a excelent job on this, the shadeing on the wings and the background must have taken time. I really love the halo and how you have a halo like shine in his hair. Great job. I will fav it ^^
capsicum Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2004
Thanks a lot. :3 I'm really happy with this one. ^_^

It's no good to stare at your work too long, you'll have a tendency to find fault in them. But to me...this is just wow-ing!! :+fav:
capsicum Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2004
I agree. It seems the longer you look at it, the more faults you can find. But I'm glad you like it! Thanks heaps! :D

Wow, stunning detail work. He almost reminds me of a seraphim because of his wings, but not quite. So much detail! *oozes with happiness*
capsicum Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2004
Thank you. :3

What exactly is a seraphim? I don't really know anything about the order of angels.
aimeejude Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2004
Um, well a seraphim has six wings. Two to cover its face, two for its back, and two cover the feet. They are God's highest servants of the angels and minister to God and proclaim his glory and whatnot.
capsicum Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2004
I see! Interesting! Thanks :D
