Fallen by thescruffymutt Fallen by thescruffymutt
inspired by Anton Chelnokov's performance of The Fall of Icarus in Cirque du Soleil's Varekai. man, i must have watched that a thousand times. i love it. thus, i drew this. yes, i know it's depressing. and yes, that is a figure on the ground and yes, it's quite distorted. any comments welcome, including constructive criticism; i plan to do more inks of this nature. ^_^

This is beautiful and depressing because of the fact of being an angel is known as purity and yet this is signifying falling from grace. Enough of that from me. Very nice drawing. Really. Truly.

thanks so much for all your words, Prowling-Wolf.
i didn't check how big the full view is... i put this one up right when i was adjusting to all these wild controls on da. i probably didn't scale it down from when i scanned it.
i agree with your idea of making the wings a little scruffy. i was planning on doing that for my third drawing in the Fallen series... also, if you like this one, you may wanna check out the second... it's in my recents - called Angelic Nightmare.
once again, i appreciate everyone's time and comments!

I'm loving this.
It's incredibly forlorn and sad, but at the same time the wings are still majestic... I'm so in love with the concept of this!
Brilliant job on the distorted figure - it's just distorted enough to give a semblance of pain without looking just like a scribble.
One thing that might increase the impact this piece has is if you were to make it slightly smaller, so that even in full view, the viewer gets the entire picture at a glance. Another thing is that the feathers on the wings could maybe use a little more detail, just some more varied shapes, make them look a bit scruffy, like they've been through a storm or something - it would fit more with the theme of the piece.
Apart from that, I definitely love this piece.

wow this is damn nice, i love the figure and the concept!
The wings are really well done in proportion, would of been better if you had made the feathers a little less long or crooked, but that's probably just me.
Great job :^)
