This started as a random drawing of wings and just... exploded o.o Only reason it took this long was because I kept changing everything lol but at last it's done! Enjoy!
I learned a lot painting this, namely 1) fire is hard to paint and 2) I like to torture myself by painting the very things I find hard to paint (fire, hands, tricky light sources). Which is I suppose a good thing, only way I'll get better. :D I was attempting to loosen up my painting a bit, but not sure how well I succeeded ^^;
There's a few meaningful things in here but I won't explain it, I'll just leave it for you to draw your own conclusions from :) I'm curious to see what people pick up.
Photoshop/Painter combo, best of both worlds :D
Also many miscellaneous male models and Jensen Ackleses were ogled in preparation for this - all in the name of art, I swear.
