I was listening to a song called Legacy by Ryan Farish when this lovely angel popped out. I don't know if the song has any true significance to the piece, but I think it sort of matches the emotions I wanted in it pretty well. Both the song and this piece make me happy, though I know that there are a few problems in the piece (take not enough body shading for example), but I like it! It also took me long enough to figure out the anatomy, being that I have never actually drawn a "chest" before this, so don't be too harsh about her!

First comment Whoopi...Whee!!! Nice pic! She is very pretty and I like the emotion in her face.Her chest is beautiful! First one , huh? Great job ! All your stuff is very good. Shadeing will add more depth but do what is you. I "smudge" the crap out of my stuff but that's me... you gotta do you. Please keep up the great work!

18 Eliera Diego replies: "Aww! Thank you! I'm so happy that you think that this is good! I think my shading is getting better already, smudging included, but its the colouring that is always the problem...oh well, I'm just going to be- just as you said! Thank you again! 1"

I was wondering how I was going to comment on the chest without sounding weird - so thanks to you for bringing it up! 12 Yes, it's well done - I can hardly believe it's your first. You must have a very well trained eye!

I don't think the body is that lacking in shading, though, at least not relatively speaking, seeing as there isn't a lot in any area of the picture. It looks like you left it out on purpose, which is perfectly fine in my opinion. 2 Sometimes, admittedly, it can make pictures look flat, but your lines are smooth and natural enough to avoid this. This is such a pretty drawing - I adore the wings by the way!

43 Eliera Diego replies: "Ha! A well trained eye, eh? Well I'm sure it doesn't help much that I'm also a woman... 10 Huh, well I never really thought about "flat" but now that you speak of it I see what you mean. As for leaving it out on purpose, well we'll just leave it at that. 12 Aw, you keep saying such nice things- thank you for making me smile today! "

For some reason, her skirt reminds me of a giant leaf... O_o
Anyway, have a cake. For being amazing, because the picture, as far as I can tell, doesn't really have any flaws; the skirt is odd, but not overly implausible.

22 Eliera Diego replies: "Huh, a giant leaf, eh? Alrighty! I don't mind at all- being compared with a leaf is WAY better than would it could have been. 2 But thank you, and I'm glad you like it! I'm getting ready to do a whole re-do/fix up on my gallery, so I'll find a way to make the skirt less leaf-ish and more skirt-ish. 2 "
