ONE-WINGED ANGEL by Keitaro333 ONE-WINGED ANGEL by Keitaro333
The story so far:
"God could have created humans perfect.
But then, they would not have helped each other.
That is why these two messengers of god have each just one wing.
In order to fly, they are dependant on one another."

(inspired by a videogame Xenogears)

"He wasnt very cooperative. He refused to give up his ability to fly, defied his Lord.
It was quite expected. But God knew why he had chosen him...
So there was no choice but to take it from him by force..."

and a little description for this particular piece:

"He has won... at least he thought so... but the price he paid was too high.
After all, no one has the power to defy God. The only thing he can do now is to find her..."

Okay, thats that :) Sorry for my bad english.
This is first character of my -angelic- story. It was painted for local Manga & Anime Calendar for the month November. At first, i just wanted to do some bishounen-type 'bad ass' angel :D (though not so thin as many bishies :lol: )
It can be considered manga-style, though not very typical, but there are mangas with similar look...

I'll continue the story when i "recover" from this one :D I too want to know what 'she' looks like :hump: :rofl:

Hope you'll like it.

It took me few dozens of hours which is pretty much, i guess mainly because i was not using any references and was
experimenting around, changing and trying different things. (i hope his pose does not look too awkward or there arent too much anatomic mitakes... :depressed: )
I used Painter 8 and Photoshop 7 with tablet.

Sometimes you just have to sit back and give art the time it deserves. ONE-WINGED ANGEL by ~Keitaro333 is one such occasion, whereby the artist delivers such inspiring technique in the texture appeal alone, it would be a crime not to take that extra time to savour the talent this piece showcases.

This looks great, although the full wing looks a little twisted, but otherwise fine! I like the way that the feathers are flying off into the wind, it fits. Great job!

Nice work! I can tell that this has a little influence of manga :D

Gorgeous work, but to me, the wing looks like it's in an awkward position.

Hello! I am wondering if I can use this in a video I'm making? The video is going to be about angels, warriors, angel warriors, mages, witches and girls/boys with guns and/or swords. So, it's mostly going to be about fantasy stuff. I will make sure you are added to the credits list for your art at the end of the video and that you get a link to the video with your art in it. The songs that will be on the video is:

We Are Who We Are- By: Kesha
Blow Me Away- By: Breaking Benjamin
Naturally- By: Selena Gomez
Bet On It- By: Zac Efron (High School Musical 2)
I'm Alive- By: Celine Dion
Moves Like Jagger- By: Maroon 5 Feat. Christina Aguilera
Disgusting- By: Kesha

WARNING: There might be 2-3 parts.

So, may I use this piece of art in my video?

Now this is very creative, and the story is even more compelling.

Well o-o
This looks slightly familiar. It looks like my rp angel that I came up with on IMVU. However its hair is the wrong color...
