October painting for the "Wings" calendar.
Finally finished. This was a little more complicated than appears on the surface. Yeah, I got caught up in the details, as usual. But, the lighting was a fair amount of the time this took. The other time consumer was his face, getting the look and expression that I wanted. I was aiming for seductive temptation with a touch of danger, and while I think it turned out a little 'nicer' than that, whenever I tried to add the 'danger' he would just look cranky. lol
There's a subtle texture in the skin of his wings. Not sure if it's visible at this resolution.
I'm really happy with how this turned out, in spite of the struggle and frustration with some of it. I think Painter 11 and the new pencil brushes, while creating some of that frustration, also allowed for me to bring some of the comfort level I have with traditional media to digital. :)
This is sort of a companion piece to "Angel of White". Dark to its Light. And both were meant to represent Black and White, respectively, in a color themed calendar I want to also do. But I snagged the sketches for "Wings" instead, since they're a perfect fit for it as well.
