This is another picture of my brother's character, Falcon. Ben tells me that, although he has wings, this is not his 'angel form.' I'm not exactly sure what that means yet, but I think I'll find out when he gets me to draw that form. I drew the clouds from a picture I took while in an airplane. I love clouds! However, I think I should have made him flying with the clouds at his back instead of at his feet. Also, the knife doesn't have a proper sheath. I think I should have put it in his hand instead.

Wow! Those clouds are exceedingly well done! The knife looks really good too. I wish I had a knife that looked like that. Only I'd probably get arrested or something. Looking good.

You know, who says he needs a sheath? I think it's great that he doesn't have one -- bravo to thi 'not-an-angel-form-guy' for not caring one!!!D

Wow! I really love the clouds! He looks so calm... is there a story behind him?

:-) Melissa L Withington Whitford replies: "Yes, he's a character my younger brother made up. He hasn't actually written the story yet, but he's told me bits and pieces about him. I've written more of his background in my other drawings of him in this gallery."

This drawing is awesome the clouds and every thing the only thing i dislike about it, is that you cant see the entire wings but other than that keep the good work up

16 Melissa L Withington Whitford replies: "Yeah, that was actually a mistake. I started in the middle of the page and didn't plan the drawing well, so his wingtips didn't fit. Oh, well. Draw and learn."

Nice job on those wings! And the clouds look fantastic. I love the views from an airplane, especially near the clouds.

:-) Melissa L Withington Whitford replies: "Thank you. I can see from your site that you like drawing (and writing about) winged people, too!"

WOW! Those clouds are perfect! I love his clothing,- very flowing and natural looking. The colors you chose are so calming, very peaceful! Love it!15

:-) Melissa L Withington Whitford replies: "Thanks! Too bad my brother lost interest in his idea and never wrote the story about this guy. 14"
