This came about as a result of a previous painting of mine.. One that can be found on my own page. But it's quite different from the younger version of the same character. As her story would have it, she actually gets her wings removed, and not a personal choice either. But I'll spare you the details. But it was after that event which changed her. About the painting though, I'd completed it in two sittings, one was the making of the sketch, the pose taken from a magazine. Her coloring and surroundings were then all added, painting right over my sketch. And yes, that is suppose to be a scar on the corner of her mouth..
