Upon These Wings by Astrikos Upon These Wings by Astrikos
First piece completely finished with Copics and Faber Castell Polychromos. And a bit of Pigma Micron.
I think it turned out pretty well.

Time: Around 2 Hours or less?

This is awesome! When i see the small thumbnail view, It looks like the front view of an orchid flower! Now, I just realized its a wolf drawn with wings. Great illusion of art. Nice concept! =D

It looks like a contradiction to me. It has wings like an angel & demon looking eyes. I never would have thought of that concept. Cool! :D

Not bad! :D I like the array of colors!

I do think defining the wings and making the colors darker would really make the details stand out, as would darkening the shading around the wolf's neck.
Also, I feel as if the rocks he's standing on are a bit distorted....it's like he's standing on the edge of a very steep cliff. See, the 'camera' is looking at him head on, but the ground appears as if one was above the scene, perhaps more foreshortening would help?
I'm not very good with the linear stuff. ^^;

Overall, though, very nice! The wolf looks great, especially the fur!

The wings are halo'd. They need to be as light and airy as possible.
However, I shall see what i can do to recover the darkness there. :nod:

I'm not sure what you mean there... Foreshortening would cut the perspective too much.

Thank you!

Okay, but I think making them just a bit darker would just make them stand out a bit more. That's all I meant.


Well, now that I'm looking at it....is he flying? (Sorry, not feeling my best today. :faint:)
If so, then I think possibly raising him up above the landscape just to show that he's not standing, but flying, would really help.
As always, of course, this is just a suggestion!

Ah I see.

And :giggle: yeah, :lol:
That's why there's a deep pink shadow, since he sets the ground on fire (kind of)

I shall add a deeper shadow :la:
