Very nice. The people who are clueless, eye-blank, not caring, and then that moment of grace and comfort--angel and human. Really nice. THANKS.

An emotional piece! The lighting is gorgeous!

I give you props for being inspired by Skillet to create this! :D

One day I'll be able to inspire the same feelings than you do. I swear it x)
Seriously, that drawing... is... wow. Just wow. I don't have enough words in my vocabulary (well, at least in english) to describe this. So, I'll just make a list of what I especially like in this :
- The way you draw everyone's eyes
- The fact that the angel and the human in the middle aren't ABSOLUTELY boys/girls (I don't know how to explain that... Hmm, let's say that the way you draw them lets everyone imagine themselves in this situation)
- How they are all different
- The background, it seems so simple but yet it's so perfect
I really, really like this !

I think I remember that as a song though, I'm not so sure...

Beautiful art though, the shading and use of lighting is really good, brings out a atmosphere.

I see what you did there with a Skillet reference  ^_^  I love that band a lot.

Love this piece too, though I think the legs of the angel seem really elongated, so I wasn't sure if there was a body under the cloth and when I looked closer to see, it turned out to be the angels' legs.

Yeah, I've been told before that I tend to draw longer legs than what's normal.... I'll try to correct it, thanks! :D

Soooo what do you use Photoshop for and what do you use Sai for? :0 I think it'd be kinda cool if you could post a tutorial about your process :3 But aside from that, is it just, you draw it in Photoshop and then take it to Sai to colour it?

It's 99% Paint tool Sai ^__^
I only use Photoshop for some effects that Sai doesn't have.

How pretty. I also like how the angel's gender could be anything. It looks like a girl but it could be a guy. Or neither, or both or anything.
