A commission for Remove From Game LLC. They asked me to draw an angel :)
I love the purity of angels, I tried to chose the colors wisely to show that.
I hope you like it!

I notice ur pretty good /w this form n style of art :I.......u should shake ur own hand 4 bein able 2 do this well :>....ps.if u put a little blue sky behind that halo it wood really make it pop :D.....but that's just my opinion :>


I'm trying to write a critique for you, but I'm having trouble. Normally, I like to say what I think you did well, and something I think could be improved, but seriously struggling to find something wrong with this one.

The soft colors, the positioning and depth-of-field, the pose, the costume design, the background, it all comes together so seamlessly. It doesn't help my conundrum that you've basically surgically strike'd me right in the personal interests with this one: beautiful and tastefully-dressed woman? Check. Heavenly background setting? Check. Angels/religious imagery? Check. Soft colors? Creative outfit? Lots of white, blue, and yellow colors? Check, check CHECK!

The only thing (and this is really a stretch for me to criticize it) I can critique is that a few of the brush stroke, most notably on the wings, look a little under-detailed and blobby, and could've done with some smoothing out.

But really? In the grand scheme of things, that's one shriveled leaf on an otherwise mighty oak tree.

Now I'm a firm believer that an artist should draw what THEY want, not what other people tell them (especially not random strangers on the internet) but if you ever feel compelled to draw and have nothing else in mind, please make something else like this.

Unbelievable! Amazing work!

clayscence responds:

thank you!

wow if someone gives this less than five someting is wrong with then this is a master piece

clayscence responds:

thank you so much :D

This is outstandingly beautiful. Still, as the guy below me said, I think there is something wrong with the light on the wings. Shouldn't the light of the halo reflect on the inner side of the right wing?

Anyways, it is gorgeous. Kudos!

clayscence responds:

thank you! well, I don't think the light of the halo is bright enough to light that part of the wing :) but maybe you are right
