Silent prayers by AquaSixio Silent prayers by AquaSixio

[EDIT] Color Change. Old version here [link] [EDIT]

Chained in the net and begging for mercy,
Melody sees her feathers falling second after second.
And the cold jail of the wrong heaven
is echoing, with her silent prayers.

Un ange sans ses ailes est un ange qui tombe.

An angel without wings, is an angel who falls.

When I was 17 ( 2002 ), my parents bought me some watercolours for my birthday.
I didn't know how use it but I took a big white sheet, and I did my first painting.
You are certainly wondering why I am speaking about it ( if your are able to traduce my english of course ^^ ).The painting represented an angel hung by some dark ties, in a jail, with a window in the blue background :)

The kanji say: honor, courage, justice, freedom...

I will try to find my old painting ( but this summer, I put my cupboard in order... i am wondering if... hum probably I will never find it ^^; ).

Finally I finished this drawing instead of the tutorial of save our souls, but I promise, be patient :]


Time: Arround 26 hours
Software: photoshop 7
Character: Melody
Print: available

are those actually Chinese words in the background? I can read "hope" and "peace." 
I really really really love how you can express so much in your artwork so delicately and beautifully

I was wondering if I could use this picture in one of my presentations for school.
I just need to know some information so that I can create proper citations to give you the credit.
-composition year
-plate #(if there is one)

This is absolutely beautiful. I love the concept, and colours! Especially the brighter shades near the upper left corner and bottom right. That element really gives a sense of inherent 'wrongness.' Like the room itself is toxic.

Mmm, I've always loved the sadness of this piece. That being said I think I like the first version's darker tone better. It just seemed to fit the theme better to me. Both versions are beautiful, though.
