Angels Dress Up Too

My complete entry for Fanart-Central's 2011 Halloween contest.

This had to be the longest amount of time I have spent in photoshop my entire life.
It also marks a rather interesting milestone - this is the first drawing I have ever colored in my entire career.
For a first timer I think it turned out pretty well.

It's my Guardian Angel character Hanna (,
She's on her way to watch over children as they trick or treat for Halloween 2011.
She dressed up herself, she felt it would help her blend in.
(Her wings are invisible to the human eye of course).
Although her overall luminescent appearance sort of makes her stand out a bit.

I couldn't actually figure out a single character I wanted her to dress-up as. XD
So I took elements from several characters and made her costume out of all that instead.
In a sense, she's sort of dressed-up as herself (if that makes sense at all).

Total Time Taken: 18 Hours (8 for the lineart, 10 for the color).

P.S. That is an orthodox church in the background loosely based off of both St. Basil's in Moscow ( and the Uspenski Cathedral in Helsinki (

luckylace222WOW!!!!!!!!! What an amazing dress up! Cuter than the crazy devil/cold looking girl outfits in Walmart, that is for sure! The people behind the doors will give her fried fish and catnip instead of candy! xD Her innocent eyes will just be asking for it! So you have never fully colored a picture before? This is a pretty god dang good result for your first try. I suppose you have been studying/analyzing enough to have such full coloring! My first coloring picture on PS was quite pixelated with those annoying white boxes on the edges; but I still thought it was awesome because it was my first!

YOU MUST DESIGN CLOTHES. That is an amazing shirt, skirt and even... bandanna! WHOA! Stars and cat ears- it so punk! You will surely get creativity points for that. AND A BACKGROUND! YESSS! *claps wildly* I LOVE IT! Thanks so much for the Halloween contribution! I can almost seeing you make this (if you have crafting skills) for tricker treating.

Your entry has been put up! You will find out the winner on October 31, 2011. Make sure to eat much fancy candy corns that day!@

ShadowFalconYeah! I'm happy you like it! :3

And yes, I've never colored before! Well, I did a long time ago but that was when I used markers and colored other peoples' stuff. I've never colored in one of my own drawings because whenever I try I always feel perpetually unsatisfied. XD But I worked really really hard and looked up a lot of tutorials and looked at how other people colored there stuff (your works too by the way) before I even thought about digitally coloring it in. However, I knew I needed to color this one because I felt it needed it for both the contest and the background!

And as a matter of fact, I do design a lot of clothes! (Girls incidentally). A good friend of mine makes her own stuff and I like to talk to her about what she thinks is the best designs and such. Of course, I like my own things, but her opinion certainly reflects in the clothing designs that I do! :3

Thank you for the compliments! I appreciate them very much! :3 And I'm glad to have contributed to you contest! It's my very first ever! XD
