Mirin - Unwanted Wings by AngelaSasser Mirin - Unwanted Wings by AngelaSasser
What is a man with an unwanted heritage? What is magic without a price? What are wings without flesh?

Portrait of Mirin from A. Teicher's novel, Winterborn done for her contest. I really had fun playing with Mirin's fiery magic wings and unfamiliar color scheme. It felt good to paint on something purely for fun, which I haven't done in months!

8.5x11 in. Watercolor on Illustration Board, White Gel Pen touchups.

Wow! This is truly inspiring! Is Winterborn the series about the fallen angels you spoke about at DragonCon?

Nope, rather this one is more about magically inclined people of arcane heritage. Should definitely give it a peek at the link!

Oh, this turned out fantastic! The lighting and skintones are wonderful, and you really brought him to life. So many little details...I love his expression. Awesome choice for the background, too. :D Best of luck in the contest!

lol can't seem to go wrong with generic magical swirly colors for a bg.;)

It's always satisfying to hear that my lighting is improving. It's an area I struggle with often! thanks for the well wishes in the contest! We shall know soon if I've won:D There are so many varied entries thus far! *Uneide takes the cake as far as sheer number of characters living in her head.

Ang, I have no words for how GORGEOUS this turned out. The sketch was incredible to begin with, but your colours are simply INCREDIBLE. This is beautiful, and so very in character for Mirin. THANK YOU, I'm still in shock and mindless drooling... <3

*fave'd* (replacing the B&W WIP) ... Still gorgeous. And again, who wouldn't want those wings? *incredulous* I'd take 'em in a heartbeat.

I feared that the skin tones and musculature could have less of a sense of definition in color, but this ends up keeping much of jt, through understatement in your colors.

The B&W still better evokes a dream state, though, so I'm saving both. (And thanks for asking over there about my reaction over here!)
