Stolen Wings by yuumei Stolen Wings by yuumei
My second entry for the Good vs Evil themed contest. Pretty much the same concept as my last entry about how the stereotyped image of good (white, angel, blonde...) can be achieved through what most would consider evil means (killing of birds). Unlike my last entry, this one is expressed in a darker style reminiscent of my other painting, "Selfish".

Here's my other entry [link]

All of your drawings have such emotions and deep meanings! They are very affective! I wish I can do something like that, SPEECHLESS! *0*

Hmm...I wonder how the wings don't fall off. (Implying that there was no glue or stuff involved)

Amazing work! I absolutely love the concept of this picture and it's truly a dark, reminiscent beauty that makes me go back to the many times I've wanted angel wings. This surely is narcissism. :glomp: I hope you don't mind, with your permission that is, that I create a story derived from the concept of this picture.
