A few more angels







I got the idea when talking to sovay of doing a Minoan angel. When I went looking for reference images, I found some of browngirl's beautiful pictures--your art is so lovely, browngirl!

The most salient feature of Minoan women's costumes (the open fronts) doesn't show on the angel because her arm is up, and she's in profile:



To showcase (sort of?) that portion of female anatomy, I turned one angel into a mermaid--the wing is her tail fin:



Here's what the painting supplies look like, btw:



And here are a few more of the angels. You can click through to see them bigger:

I'm always amazed at the diversity and detail you come up with. The mermaid transformation was a clever change-up. :D

Thanks! I wish I'd made the curve of the tail clearer, but ehh, it'll do :-)

Yes, like the one in THIS ICON. So beautiful. Love your feel for a body, and your expressions on their faces, and how you make the clothing look completely natural.

Thank you! (And Little Springtime gets credit too--she did the angel on the left in the first photo)

Oh, lovely! :)
and how urbane - cosmopolitan - knowing the Minoan angel looks! Her sidelong glance and tumbling curls! :) I admire the delicacy of these very much indeed!

Great angels. The Minoan Special is very pretty, even neglecting the window with the view!
