The originality, vision and impact are superb.
Compostition and lighting are great.
The only thing I would work on are his pants, they look a little baggy, but that is all.
The wraps where he got his, ahem ass-kicked, and the way he is standing show his determination to try again.
His torso and wings are absolutely stunning.
I would like to see just a little more of his face or perhaps eye color. It would add a little more mystery to his countenance.
Overall you did a fantastic job for your fifth deviation in this series.
Very well done!!!

Much love

My brother Rafael committed suicide on February 27, 2015 due to depression. He leaves behind an amazing 13 year old autistic boy. Sadly Tony found his father where he had hung himself, called the pollce, and called his mother. Tony was under the impression that the police and doctors would revive his father, being that Ralph had been hospitalized twice this past summer and came back home.  I've been telling him that his father is watching over him.  That he is an angel now and that he is the Archangel Raphael.  I would love to purchase this artwork for him.  My brother's resemblance to this painting is unbelievable.  Help me help this boy so that I can frame this painting and hang it in his room.   How talented you are! What an imagination! It is beautiful.  Thanks, Josephine Rada

Yes I am the creator. It's in: Fan Art / Digital Art / Painting & Airbrushing / Books & Novels - as it is loosely based on Nalini Singh's character Raphael.

I dont know who Nalini Singh is but if this was based off that Raphael, then I bet the other angels are bad ass looking too

Raphael is often overshadowed by Gabriel and Michael. Thanks for remembering Raph.

I love the figure. The pants are a bit baggy but it works. I also like the texture you got one the wings.

Just one thing . . . the wings don't really look realistic. I mean, I know we're talking about fantasy and all, but it doesn't really look as if he could fly with them. When I draw wings I usually us a photo of the bone structue, as well as a photo of the type of wing I want as a referance.
Other that that it's awesome.

Now THAT is Raphael! :drool:

I just finished reading this series. All three of them in two days, I just couldn't put them down, as soon as I finished one I bought the next (the convenience of iBooks is both a blessing and a curse!), and then I went straight back to the start and read them all over again, which is something I've never done before. I simply couldn't bear to leave that wonderful world Nalini Singh has created. I'm fighting the compulsion to read them for a third time... and as you can tell, I'm hunting for Fan Art right now ;)
LOVE this series, can't wait for Archangels Blade to be released...

now, people laugh at me when I say exactly the same re this series. When I got Consort I basically inhaled it and re-did the inhalation for the next week. Aye! Dimitri! aye! Your head does hurt doesn't it? :rofl: I got the latest Psy-Changling book, Hawkes one, and I pulled a all nighter! :rofl:

Go here: [link] and you can download Himself's wallpaper and stuff I did for her. Elena, Dimitri, Bluebell and Venom are all done but not released yet :-P

I don't recommend many series, and I dont recommend many after book number 3-5 but her other series, the psy-changeling? That is a awesome series also. It's completely different to whats out there now in the vamp/were takeover world of UF fantasy.

I wouldn't go all out with the eyes, as you obviously meant his face to be in shadow, but a hint of color or glint of light would really up the drama.
