Every Elfwood gallery should have its own Angel of Death picture. So here is mine. It was partially inspired by the Crow movie and its  “People once believed, that when someone dies, a crow carries their soul to the land of the dead” (Sarah).

A gallery update again! Hm, now I definetely have to submit something new for my own gallery before too long - I promise! This is a nice piece - only I'd suggest that the soul should've retained at least some of the shape of the deceased's body, so that the theme would be more obvious from the picture itself. As it is, it could be a depiction of any sort of magic, if you get what I mean. (Though, of course, there is the scythe to signal death.)

The balance between tight 'pen' work and 'washiness' is superb, however you ought to mind the foreshortening on his feet. It appears, because you placed both feet on the same line, that the far foot is actually just as close to the viewer as the near foot. In actuality, his right foot should be higher than his left foot because of perspective.

:-) Lena Yn replies: "Um… I believe I still did some perspective. I just checked the foot claws/fingers again. And I can draw three relatively parallel focus lines(focus lines can’t be parallel, of course) between each left and each right finger. "
