The Fallen

Author Comments

This is something I came up with late last night. I enjoy painting wings, so I thought Id create a creature with them.

I dont fully have a name for her, or race in mind, but for now we can just call her a fallen angel. Also, yes, she is blind, so her helmet covers her eyes, but this does not mean she cannot fight, she goes by sound (Hence the ears).

I am pretty proud with this, I feel like I have improved a lot over the years, if you look back at my old stuff. I hope you guys enjoy!


OK so this is like the best piece you ever made ;P I love the lightng and I really dig your designs, its really awesome when you paint with a strory in your mind (I belive that is what all pros do). There is just one thing I dont like in your paintings - all edges are so sharp, it makes it just too busy. Try to google - lost/soft edges, it might help you a lot ;).

Syringes responds:

Thank you, I appreciate the help. I definitely know what youre talking about though, to me, I felt like the lighting worked, I could be wrong. I feel like if the edges are too soft, the figure is lost. Unless you meant specific spots that were too sharp? Because you make it sound like all of it needs to be softened, which I believe would lose the actual character. Sorry if I misunderstood.

Mind blowingly awesome. You, madam, are severely underrated.

I've followed your stuff since I featured something of yours on my profile, and the progress you make is astounding from piece to piece. Keep it up, I look forward to the day when I see your art in the concept art collections of games/movies or... if I ever were to go to one, a famous art exhibit.

Syringes responds:

Oh I definitely remember you too! Thank you sooo much! I really appreciate your support. It means so much to me that people like my art, even if its from a small crowd. Ive been trying hard to work my way up in the art world, and with people like you, its a lot easier. :3 Thank you again <3

AMAZING detail on the wings.

Syringes responds:

Thank you! I enjoy wings, they are one of the funnest parts for me :3

The coloration and the pose of the figure is one of those wow moments; you've created a nice sense of balance and contrast in the way way you've presented things, creating the sense of her in motion, the camera zooming ahead to see what she sees. Your character also creates as much wonder as she does fear. You should definitely work on creating a background for her, for more meaning, and find a way to use her again in some way.

Syringes responds:

Thanks for the feedback, I dont think I could have ever worded it as good as you did. This is one of my favorite parts about being an artist. :3

I also plan to further develop her, I have been thinking of her back story, the reason for her blindness, and such, so I may submit more of her. :D

Woow, great feeling

Syringes responds:

Thank you!
