"Si tú no vuelves, no quedarán más que desiertos
y escucharé por si
algún latido le queda a esta tierra"

"If you don't come back, there will be nothing but deserts
but I will listen in case there's
a heartbeat still beating in this land"

earlier stages : [link] [link]

OKAY, it's done.......for now, I tihnk.
and if you know my art you're probably saying "Well of course, a gay angel in pain" lol.
I'm happy with it, and I can officially say that I know how to make digital paintings ^_^

the inspiration came from my first Montage cover that came from a photo here on DA. it took ALL DAY LONG.

YOU SHOULD DOWNLOAD FOR THE FULL SIZE, IT LOOKS COOLER!

I Love One Winged Angels <3<3<3

Woooooooow, this is absolutely gorgeous! I really love everything about this--the concept, the painting, the details... everything is just so beautiful. The face and the hair are so perfectly done and I just love the colorscheme of this and how well that kind of tawny-gold-brown wing looks... and the wound, ouch!
This is a very personal-taste kind of nitpick, but I somehow feel that a wound more like a gash rather than a neat hole would work... or was it very surgically removed?? That's an interesting thought, now! o:

But really, this is just such a gorgeous picture and concept~
Keep it up with the fantastic work, I love it! :)

Thank you so much!


as for your question...

I was thinking maybe he removed it with a knife or some sort of blade... either way I was gonna make it a bit messier and a bit more bloody BUT it was turning out to be more gorey than I wanted it to be, so I changed it a bit. I made it a "neat" wound to avoid having to add so much blood... you know what I mean? I felt like a gash would require more blood in the drawing.

Haha, yeah, I know what you mean~
(personally, I like drawing more blood, soooooooooo~ xDDD )

But wow, it does still look so painful~ well-done, man! I really love your work. :)

“Si supieras cómo tu rostro
se altera, cuando en la mirada
calma y pura que te une a mí,
te pierdes de pronto
y te apartas de mí
como un paisaje luminoso que se oscurece,
eso me excluye de ti.
Entonces, espero. En silencio, espero
largo rato, a veces.
Si fuera humano, como tú,
mi amor despreciado se haría mortal pena.
Pero una paciencia infinita me ha dado
el Padre e inquebrantablemente
te espero, cuando quieras venir.
Y este ligero reproche, compréndelo,
no es un reproche
sino un discreto mensaje.”

Christian Morgenstern

That's perfectly natural. I meant it to be sad. i can't imagine any other emotion to "tag" this with. Especially if you listen to the song ("SI TU NO VUELVES" by SHAKIRA AND MIGUEL BOSE) that helped inspire this pic, feel the mood of the song THAT'S the mood I wanted for this piece. Anyway, thank you. I'm glad you like it :D

Ouch. Snapped off wing looks very painful.

I love how you can see the detail of it all, and the blood vessels coming from the wings. Amazing detail of the hair and feathers too. And the skin. Great going here.

Though if I were him, I'd be screaming.

Absolutely gorgeous! Incredible coloring and shading. The hair is so realistic I almost thought this was a photograph. Beautifully drawn hand as well and the wing looks so soft and feather.

The veins in the back could use a little more smoothing, but besides that, beautifully amazing work. <3
