A few of you might have already seen this; I fixed a couple things that were bugging me and resubmitted it. If you've seen my other pieces, I like creating emphasis using lighting effects and distinct shadows. This piece has very sad overtones and is quite symbolic. Tell me what you think.

Cubrea_Ymtic P.S I also really like the angel herself. I love the expression and emotion on her face, and the way she is huddled up, curled into herself, trying to use her wings as a shield and comfort.

Cubrea_Ymtic This picture is brilliant. It's beautiful and striking but isn't just pretty to look at. It also makes viewers think. I agree with one of your previous reviewers that it was the scene of a car crash. But is the angel crying just becase she's witnessed it? I think she may have been one of the victims and she is crying because she's died on her own and she's scared. She's probably in shock, seeing the place where she knows she lost her life.
On to the way the picture looks. I think this is an amzing display of talent. I don't think I've ever seen such a complex and detailed use of shadows and light. This really is well done, as everything in this picture looks completely three dimensional and realistic. There is also some quality about your drawing that makes it look somewhat like an engraving. Very, very well done for a perfect piece of art.

1_4lvlOnce again, amazing work.

The lighting is so effective, and the shadows add drama...

This is going straight into my favs.

blind_strangerThose wings are sweeeeeet. *_*

Umm, would you mind explaining the symbology? I don't get it...I see what looks like a smashed miror and a photograph dippend in blood(?), and she's under a streetlight, but I still don't get it........or am I/are we not suposed to? (would understand if so) :-)

Honestly? I think it's the depth and shading that really make your work stand out. You draw the kind of pictures people can fall into. %-)
