I think this came out a bit more animated than you prefered. I'm not quite sure, I'm still working on it though if you can give me a couple more days. I'd also love to know what your opinion is, and what I can do to improve this for you.
Beautiful and touching. The wings are done wonderfully. They are drawn with great care and detail. You captured the innocence I see in him. The visual impact is good. I know the dagger isn't done yet, but it could be improved some. This link may help with finishing the dagger as far as how the actual blade part goes. [link]
Definitely captures the emotion I had in mind. I like the way you drew him. It really does him justice. This is a really nice piece and am looking forward to the completed one.. You are a very talented artist.
