Fallen Dreams by keelerleah Fallen Dreams by keelerleah
A second commission for :iconkilo112205: this time of her male angel character Raquiel.

I really enjoyed the lack of color in this one. I don't often get to work with a lot of grays and silvers, making this one quite enjoyable, despite the many hours of detailing.

Oh, and for the record, that's not a staff. Its the handle of his scythe. :)

Painted in adobe Photoshop.
A few photo references were used for the crow.
No Critique desired.

Thanks again for looking! :hug:

I think, I fall in love with your arts. They're really incredible and amazing... Details are so realistic... It's so much that I want to tell, but with my low english skills it's almost imposible. :c
Nah. In one word - beautiful. I'm under big impression.
I'm really sorry for all grammar and other language mistakes. ^^"

P.S.: This angel reminds me one of my friends. More from charakter than appearance, but... oh, nevermind. I'm writing like a cranky fantasy writer. xD

By the way, why you dont want a critque?True, that some people can be quite mean in their comments, but there can be a constructive criticism as well.Not that I am blaming you or something.Just curious.

It's mostly because these are all finished commissions and I don't want people pointing out things that they think should be changed. The picture is finished and I want to be able to look at it without the knowledge that certain things may seem off to others. If something is pointed out to me, I'm the kind of person that will will take it to heart and it will drive me crazy up to a point where I can't even look at the picture anymore. >.> -Although I then get the argument that I should just fix the mistakes but sometimes I just don't have the time or ambition to do so. ^^;

I don't mind constructive comments (and I'm always willing to look at my faults and learn from them) but I've had way to many irksome comments that I've just given in and posted the 'no critique desired'. I've even pondered the option of turning off comments completely...(I know some other rather talented artists have done that) but it hasn't gotten that bad yet.

Well I use a tablet and just doodle out my ideas on a large sized canvas with a plain round brush. Then I create a new layer and draw out my idea better and tighter over the previous doodle. From that I start blocking in flat colors. The shading and highlights are next. Then I zoom in to 200% and start the detailing (which takes weeks usually). I then just keep working away a little at a time until I feel its finished.

And if not a secret, how old you are and since when you are drawing this way?
