Prayer for the Fallen by Ironshod Prayer for the Fallen by Ironshod
This angel is not specific to any religion but a symbolic fantasy being. Life can be hard and sometimes filled with sorrow. Here she offers a prayer in rememberance of those who have died before their time.

I have made the colour scheme minimal to enhance the mood, and designed the wings to fold around her in protection. The subject is fantasy but I hope the symbolism and feeling behind it are from our own world also.

Thanks to *faestock whose photos I used as reference for bits of the figure

Someone stole the wings from this angel and photoshopped them onto a celebrity. I was disappointed to see that :( The image was spectacular but I don't like seeing someone's work being ripped without permission. It made me sad.

I think that if this artwork didn't have a name.. well it just wouldn't be as fabulous as it is

Her face is so serene and pretty. I love the light shining on in, makes her features even softer.
God I wish I could paint like this. Best I can do is some slightly cartoony relaistic stuff, haha.
I really like the way you painted her wings, lovely.
I needa buy some more posters...
