Sweet Sorrow by Ironshod Sweet Sorrow by Ironshod
I have just completed this new angel artwork called Sweet Sorrow. I hope you like her.

A big thank you to model ^Elandria for the lovely photograph which was a great help as reference when painting the figure.

I can't help but imagine a story here.

where this angel was watching a human and, well I wouldn't say she fell in love with him.
but more like she had slight feelings for him, then he died and she is hurt even more because she never felt that way before and part of her sadness is that she can't understand why she feels that way.

<font><font class="">Angel enamorada, triste melancólica en Escaleras al Cielo..., asexuada no puede amar.., sólo le queda una pasión imposible.., sólo le queda la eternidad..!

Wow. Just wow. I love the way she is posed, curled into a ball, such a graceful way to portray the hurt and despair she's going through. Her wings, curling around her defensively as she grieves, give an almost peaceful overwhelming sadness, you can really tell that she's just barely holding it together. This picture is really worth a thousand words!!! I am simply stunned.

Not only is this beautiful and incredibly realistic, but it somehow also manages to visualize, unfortunately, exact how I have been feeling lately. :/

But...this is excellent. :+fav:

This is one of the few illustrations of angels I've seen where the person looks like he or she actually belongs to the wings, if you know what i mean. They look like an extension of her body that isn't thought of all the time, like an arm. It's fantastic!
