The Angel of Christmas by Xenonia The Angel of Christmas by Xenonia
Phew! :faint: Yippee, I managed to finish it at the right time... Right before Christmas Eve ;P


I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas! Sorry for being inactive lately, I promise I'll try my best to make more art.

I'm not really sure what I think about this one, but I hope some of you like it. :)

Photoshop CS2 + wacom volito tablet.

Used some reference for the folds on the lower part of the dress. [link]

WILL MAKE IT AVAILABLE AS A PRINT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!

I give my full permission for *DeviantDolls to display this deviation in the club's gallery

Too sexah to be an angel. It makes me to think of sinning and not of praying.
I would bet she is a devil with white wings, hmm...

all i would change is th white streaks on the dress, without those, it would look alot cleaner, also if your going to have snow on her...maybe make more of it so it won't look like missed spots, it's a very good piece though :D

This came out really well. The composition rocks, your color is lush, and I adore the texturing in the hair, clothes, and boquet. The subtle touches of violet-red in the trees and mountains help relate it to your lovely distant landscape. Great job! :clap:

I love the backgroudn and the flowers, the character's purple skin is a bit odd, but otherwise she looks good too. The wings howeve look a bit off her shoulders are staggerd so her back is kinda facing us at an angle, but the wings attached are staggered in a way that her back should be facing away from us. Is a good piece though very very pretty~ Merry Christmas~

I made the whole pic blue/purple-ish, because its supposed to be at night. Thats why her skintone is blue. And yeah I know her wings are bad, I had SO little time doing them, and Ive never done wings before, hehe=) but thanks for the tips! Thank you for taking your time to comment=) Merry christmas!

Beautiful work on the dress that she's wearing. The hair is so pretty and I love those angelic wings that you did on her. The snow in the background is so pretty too. :D
