A commission painting I have finished a longer while ago.
Not exactly my style and so I was rather awkward to post it here, but thanks to support of my friends I thought: what the hell :)
The point was to depict an angel but with a somewhat darker past, and so I tried to make the theme subtle yet noticeable, a hint rather than a bold depiction: the character looking rather anxious and thoughtful...
Painted from scratch in Painter and Photoshop in a month(or two) of on and off work.
Live reference in the form of anatomy and lighting studies for the character (the same as for Pandora, to clear any confusion). Also, some references for the pigeons and the necklace. :)
Here's some closeups:
