The true angel by ALKEMANUBIS The true angel by ALKEMANUBIS
Hello people. This is an artwork I did for the :iconanimeangelsbook: Anime Angels artbook, I did it on the last days of 2011 and beginning of 2012. It had a double page feature.

I remember I started thinking about the idea and skecthing a bit way before but I got decided very close to the deadline hehe xD. It has a lot going on and too much details compared to my older illustrations, so it took a lot of hours to finish it, like 40 or something, haha I think I´m pretty slowat painting certain things.

Here´s some background story I wrote for the artbook:
"In a devasted world changed by wars a group of deserter soldiers finds a new way of fighting. They may be treated as traitors, but they may find more like them who see beyond the false truth and ideals imposed. On their journey, they find survivors and help them with the reconstruction of their living place and removal of dangerous threats. During a break, a man remembers with sadness his lost beloved one, but he suddenly discovers that an angel can be found in many different forms and that there is a future to fight for."

Photoshop CS5, Intuos 4 tablet.

:bulletgreen:EDIT: Wow, I got my very first DD!! This is so amazing :3 Thank you all for your nice comments and ~Yuki-Namida for suggesting it :heart::heart::heart:

The true angel by ~ALKEMANUBIS
The suggester said:
"It's the kind of picture that tells a story. It's cute and touching, and you can feel this situation has a past and a future. And there are so many details, like the gun on the wall or the tear of the angel girl, that make it rich and alive, and to top it off, it all bathes in a splendid light."

The picture lives its own life. :-) I linked it to an actual story, that is developing right now, rally, at the Turkish/Syrian border. G*gle "Angels of Kobani" or just YPJ in graphics mode. Gender aside, it fits the story perfectly.
Greetings from Greece!

This is a truly touching piece of ART.  I keep looking, and keep finding little things.  Were I an expert, I could go on.  Since I'm not, I'll simply let it stand that this is well done.

Cheers.

This is really a great piece of work. It has a setting that would otherwise be depressive if without the cute themes you've added. The boy standing straight in the background is something I really enjoy, since I have a personal preference for scarves on characters. But other from biased preferences, this piece is amazing. And the description doesn't just tell the story in the picture, but the picture tells the story in the description.

This is one of those few works on the homepage of deviantART that I just HAVE to stop and look at. The little girl and the children playing go to show that even in strife, happiness can be found.

This work is a GREAT work and it is meaningful, great job and keep it up my fellow artist.

Is it weird I almost got teary on this?  XD Though, I was staring at it and I didn't noticed the woman had wings. It just saw the soldier and the little girl. It reminded me of war and the soldiers out there, and it was just really loving. Congrats on the DD, you deserve it. XD c:
