Wow...this is beautiful. I love your thoughts behind it too. For me it seems that the water represents his sorrow which he is drowning in and his wings have grown so much larger to represent the weight of his fears and pain. I really like the use of pencil in this, it gives the image a depth and sorrow that colour would have taken away. Excellent image, well done! Russell Franklin

Sad picture! I love sad pictures (yeah, I know. I'm weird)! This is very good, I think. Russell Franklin

I love the wings, they most have taken an insane amount of patience. I love Stephen King as well. Russell Franklin

I must say, this is my favorite piece I have seen of yours yet. You usually don't put quite this much time or detail into your work, however I urge you to do so. The time you put into this made it amazing. I can not do wings nearly this good. The points of great interest are the wings and the abdominal. You did beautiful detail and shading on these parts. Try moving more towards that direction.

WOW, just wow!
so much detail in, well, everything. the wings are the best by far but all of him does look realistic.
my angels wings always seem to lack detail!
very good work!
