These are three images of the Archangel Jophiel, showing full body without wings (Thanks to Tom 'Beldarr' Bell for the digital surgery on that image), then two zoned in images showing wing and body details. The parts are scanned at different sizes and resolutions. The final image should be ready once I can find someone who can scan a 24x22 inch size drawing. Need to go to a Kinkos or another specialized center...

Wha??...*cough,cough* All those detailes!!You sure is a master of patience.On the contrary, Santhi. I burn out pretty quickly. That is why it takes me forever to finish a drawing!

The body art is wonderful. Thank you! The detailing in the wings is awesome. I am glad you like it, Deborah. Between you and me, I felt that the wings are lacking a bit, but honestly, I was reaching my limit when I was finishing up the wings. She appears to be naked, except that she has no apparent genitalia. Is this because she is an angel? The body paint and ornaments make for a good disguise. She seems to have nipples...??? She does. One is hidden under the topmost flower on the left side, and the right nipple is there, just beside the starburst pattern on the inner side, on the right side. Just curious. Truly beautiful picture. You are amazing. No...*you* are amazing!

And then you watch Pop-Up Video and we see there was no modle in Play Boy who was ever actually named Angel (weeps). Yeah, there was. Boris Angel and Angela Michelle Little. (big smile) Don't ask how I know, I just do *LOL* Not that I read Playboy, it's sort of lame as it gose for skin mags, hehehe, I've yet to see a Playgirl! (Is that a glimmer in your eye? *LOL* None of the girls I know would be caught dead with one! I guess they figure it's easier just to look on their boyfriends skin mags? Why is that? I don't know! I wonder if women's skin mags have as much graphic stuff in it or is it filled with purfume ads? Ack those stink! But I'm rammbling! Interesting ramble! Feathers! Like no chick I've ever known, hehehe, I need to go make dinner now, home made hamburgers, yum! ;-D Sounds tasty!!!

Oh! Absolutely exquisite! It's so nice to see a new pic up. ^_^ Thank you, Norma! What beautiful shading on the body...lovely and smooth, and the flesh is almost tactile. Don't I wish! (big smile) All the little detailing adds so much to the overall effect. And to the trying of my patience *LOL* Beautiful work, and I can't wait to see the finished version. ^_^ I'll be sure to let you know when it is ready!

This is so beautiful, Richard.. but then, all your art is, that I see... I love your style and the gracefulness of your art.And I love the heart and gentleness of your works, Lacey!

wow Rich, this picture is your best...Thank you, yifat! I do not like her face (but that has nothing to do with your drawing skills), but the body is exellent... and of course so is the shading...Thanks! I've tried working on improving several aspects of my lame talents. You know, you and a few others prefer the original or the second facial version. In a way, I do to, but this face just seems so serene that I couldn't ignore it! why don't you start to draw with colors, colored pencils are not much diffrent then pencil, and well since you are so good with pencil, I don't think you would have a problem...I am afraid of coloring. I feel to incompetent to even try. I can barely handle a pencil, and that is just in grayscale. Now imagine trying to handle tones of color...

*blush* thanks.. I do feel I've been improving..You are improving! you should see some of the ones I have not scanned (As I do not own a scanner *sniff*) Sorry to hear that. It really is a pain when one is not readily able to scan an image. Oh.. and I had the weirdest dream!! I dreamt that you were drawing me.. how weird is that? Guess that's what happens when you go to bed at 4180 in the morning after spending all day doing cleaning and laundry... bad Lacey. Well, you probably had a hard day, and you were quite understandibly tired. But that dream, it is a bit strange (Laughing)...

WAAAAH! (bloody elfwood, I thought I did comment this, eh, I'll do it again) That happens at times This is beautiful! Thank you! O.O; I love the markings..tattoos.. erm, things that cover her. (Laughing) WONDERFUL. Boy. This really isn't something you've done before, is it? It's lovely! 2 Thank you, Samantha. No, it isn't a work common to my style. At least, I have not done something this sophisticated before. Some billowing, open wings would really fit the scene. I just need the room to do that. Makes me wanna draw angels.. (since my scanner is being nice and scanning better, yay!) Do it! You would create beautiful works! But eeeeeh! This is sooo perdy. Great job, my man! I salute you! ^^; (Blushing) I am honored!

how to you manage to make everything so detailed? I think this is even more detailed than a photo. The anatomy is masterful by the way... and I love the feather detail ont he wings!!! it's awesome!!! lovely piece of work!

Argh. I honestly should give up my art career. With people like you out there i'll never be noticed! Grr.
Wonderful Though. I must say, sadly enough for myself, it is wonderful.
