I like it

Did he it a plane?

as it was for machine flesh, my perception of the character is that he have his wings fixed over his human body, not growing with him or part of him, as it was the case with the other submissions I saw.. The angle is suggesting that as well.

I think the mood is good, I wonder about the meaning of the golden feather though...what is your idea for it?

Hey this is some wicked art, I really like the emotion you communicate to the viewer. As a composition nice work, but my eye either gets trapt inside the wing span or gets blocked out into the background (i think it might jest be me). I hope to see more of your work

Here the main idea:
Humanity was inspired by the technical progress and thought, they
reached divine heights. They didn't understand, how it led to their destruction of the bases of existence. They fell down. The feather of an angel, Ikarus is looking at shows another way to the heavens, much easier and supreme.

I really like the dramatic lighting focusing on Icarus. Very nice color work.
An excellent work. You had to be on the frontpage.

Top stuff I really like the metal texture of the wings and just the over all mood. How did you do all the cool metal for the wings?

Those who know it can't be done should stop interrupting those who are doing it

This one got my vote in the machineflesh contest. I love it!

having never seen this before, here's my take:
at first I thought he was scaling a wall (and those were arms not wings), then I looked again and it looked like he was sleeping, then I looked again and was wondering if he was dieing.. still not entirely sure what's going on.
I know what sorta look you were going for perspective wise, it's just off a little. The wing on the left side becomes the focal point (which is not the strength of the piece) and does not necessary make you look at him. I think bringing one of the wings even closer and a little off the page, with some added DOF would do it more justice.
the golden feather kinda seems like an after thought too. It doesn't really 'pop' all the much either.

That would be my take atleast. I'm not saying it's bad, just that you wanted critique and there it is.
