i think i'm correct in entering this as abstract. perhaps the subjects are abstract, or the concept is abstract... whatever. anyway i thought this little piece up when i was in art class listening to good ol' gackt. yay. ^_^ i hope that explains some of the pretty/twisted/bizzarre/whatever aspects of this picture. it was featured towards the end of this last school year in my school's art show and literary magazine, so i'm really proud of it after that. i got a lot of different views on what this picture is from my family members and some of their friends and acquaintances. i'd like to hear some more views on this and your opinions of the subject, so i won't give any hints for now besides the picture itself. i hope you enjoy. :)

    I love the colours you have used. Soft and bright. Really interesting and the hands are quite a nice addition. Perhaps you could have refined the outlines digitally. A lot of it is quite sketchy and if you could refine it, I think it would look much better.

    Nice work.

    I agree with eunasahng for the sketchy outlines. Your coloring is great (and i particularly like the little white lines / dots in the bg, i think it enhances the colors somehow).

    Now about an interpretation of your work : the lock on the smiling angel's wing reminds me of a cage somehow, but it seems more like she (i get the feeling it's a girl ^_^') is trying to protect him / fence him from the outside world. Then they're both hurt. And the sad angel is getting his feathers ripped away.
    I don't really understand the water thing that he's touching with his hand. And i wonder if the smiling angel is blind or not.
    Then, an usual interpretation would be that the angels, happy to go on earth, were welcomed as some threat or seen as tools for domination, and therefore locked up in a cage, where the humans tried to hurt them / cut their wings to stop them from being free, then conducted experiments.... but what i like here is that this pic is really 'human'. And i like the concept that wings have some kind of bone underneath the feathers.

    Good job !

    PS please tell me YOUR view of the pic
