The Sentinel, Nykolai Aleksander (2D)



Title: The Sentinel
Name: Nykolai Aleksander
Country: United Kingdom
Software: Photoshop

"To you I gave my wings, because I have a reason to stay."
"Can these wings make me fly?" he asked.
"No," she said, "but happiness can."

This piece meant alot to me when I painted it over the course of several weeks in 2006/2007. So it was - and probably still is - a very personal one.

Some close-ups:





Enjoy. =]

I love this, excellent concept. I also really like how the red of the ribbon contrasts against the background, great mood

Wow, nice work! Only one crit, mans hand drop the shadow, whereas legs don't have shadows. But it maybe looks like artistic method. However, nice picture.

Again, thanks everyone. =]

fabis: mhh... I just looked at it again just to make sure, and the legs drop a shadow. Unless they should drop it differently than they do, in which case I'm more than open to hear how it should be.

Hah! I understand the reason why it happens. It caused by higher value of gamma in my laptop screen, this is why i can't detect any shadows under the legs, because shadows droped by the hands is more darker in the corners, in depth and i still can see this in the laptop. But in my desktop screen it's all right. Anyway, forget it... Picture is nice! 5 stars
