This is gorgeous
It's like she's in so much pain, and was willing to do anything to get back her selfimportance : 3

Nice subtle touch with the staples, there... And I don't know what it is about the curving legs, but I love 'em. You can practically feel her bones...

This has such nice anatomy, and has such a haunting feel that I can't help but fav it. Her fingers are lovely, and her whole position evokes a sense of inner struggle, while the paper wings give a sense of frailty.

Have the wings been inserted into her or is she injured? Hmmm..

The more I look, the more intriguing and saddening this is. Someone played a horrible trick on her to staple the wings to her. Brilliant imagery.

Great drawing, you did an awesome job with the wings. I like how they look cut and not torn. did you make a model of them before you drew it? The only thing I would criticize is the right arm seems a bit long. If the elbow was brought across her front a little more, but that's being picky and you might have wanted her to have long arms. Oh I also like the lips, fat and pouty.

i am way too lazy to make a model, lol. i did play around with the arms quite a bit, and i settled on this. it looked best to my own personal sensibilities. but i think you may be right. hmm.
thank you. :)

It's about time you put something up! Hard at work on the website, eh?

Anyway, it's a great piece. The suble colour is nice, and the concept is very thought provoking.

i think samurai's word "BITCHIN" about applies right now. i like i like.
the very concept of the wings being paper is pretty sweet as well it makes them more fragile. like a man-made attempt at innocence and it got a lil bloody lol

Wow, cool concept. Most winged being I have seen (or artistically depicted) have feather, leather, insect, and metal as wings. This is supremely unique.

This deviation is delicate yet strong.

I'd say my fav part though is definitely her wings(surprise surprise:P)-you really captured the way paper looks, with the folds everything:)
