(uploaded 12/~/00) A few years back I wrote a short play with a smart-alec loner of an angel named Random in it. Although inspired by that character originaly, I modified a few minor points (such as gender) to arrive at this figure. Several fairly significant changes in methodology from my earlier pictures. I used a smoother shading technique, played around a bit with transparencies and refined some of the techniques I use to 'ink' an image. I also added some fairly basic background and framing elements. Originally I had planned on a simple white background, but the wings looked so much prettier against a blue drop. At any rate, I had lots of fun with this one.
