*fave'd* ... Their inner glow and serenity seems to be what makes them able to fly. It's contagious as with others, I become more peaceful just looking at this.

Was this a portrait of of a mother and daughter, by any chance? Evoked from someone's passing?

(Can't believe nobody has commented on this in a year and a half!)

thanks, yes, mother and daughter, but not from passing, it's two people that enrich my life, so angels were a fitting theme

...Oh, wow... that's absolutely beautiful! It looks like it must have been difficult to paint, with the way the light is.. but I'm no painter, so I have no clue. ^^; I love the gentle tones you used, and the softness of their wings. The female forms look perfect, as well. All in all a stunning painting in my humble opinion! One that I want to favorite so I can look at it again later! ^__^

Heheh, what did u hate about painting it?
Did you have to listen to church hymns while u painted? ;]
(srry for every1 who really "gets down" to church hymns)

I like the lighting and etheral glow to it - good job on that
The wings appear to be forming out of the heavenly linen
Good result for sure

Yep, there's reason to be happy about the result. Why didn't you like doing it, pray tell? I can see that it is not your typical style/motif, are there more reasons?

Regarding the result: well, it's done well, but I can't really put my fingers on it, somehow. The angels themselves seem to be right in overall, but the details again seem not to be; the wings, for example, seem to be without movement, both just protruding from the back as if they'd been glued there. Still, the winks look neat (probably due to the detail), and it somehow works in the overall picture.

Same with the childish angel's dress, for example: totally oversized, when comparing how those ... offshoots ('scuse me not knowing a damn of clothing-related vocabulary) reach out far beyond her legs, while they don't go that far down when comparing it to the elder angel's legs. Yet still, it works.

The effect of the light.. streaming from where they touch with their fingers. That's so kitschy. Yet still, it works.

Ergo: interesting stuff. :)

Man u make me press that button with the star shape....i cant control my hand :)
ur work is always amazing Martin...keep them coming
verilon Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2004
Some good stuff. Honestly, it reminds me of some of *nyctopterus' vectors. o.O

The lighting is a bit ... odd ... and the picture in general seems a bit ... flat. (for lack of better terms :| )

I find the way you put the wings melded together with the clothing a very unique way of portraying this.

Seems a bit ET mixed with Michaelangelo.. which isn't altogether bad, but new.

I like the background more than the foreground, to be honest with you (but one of the mountains seems tilted).

The piece doesn't really appeal to me, but it IS very well done.
Dragonrain Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2004
This is beautiful. I love the wings and the overall feel to the pic.
