I've been busy, so haven't had much to post or anything. Just recently finished a commission (part of the 'busy') and once I've given the commissioner a chance to see it, I will be posting it.

But to the reason for this post... I have new art  I can post. 

I'm working on art for a new calendar -- again I'm hoping to at the least build up another collection of art to add to my portfolio for submitting to potential employers. Although it would be very awesome if I sold a bunch of calendars too. :)  The last one didn't sell too well :(   but I realize the theme/content had a narrow base of appeal. Last year when I was exploring calendar theme ideas, I had two others that I decided to do for this year (time didn't work out as I hoped, so only 1 instead and much later than I intended to work on it :(      )  

The ideas were: Color -where every piece has a color scheme of one color, going through the rainbow, plus a black and a white; and Wings -exploring different winged figures, fairies, angels, whatever, ... all male, and hotties, of course. ;)  Well, that's the one I'm doing. It doesn't hurt that Supernatural is my new fannish show and I get angel-inspired every week. lol 

So here's a pencil sketch for one of the paintings. I was going to have it be for the calendar itself, but I don't want it to be the only pencil piece and I don't know if I'll do anymore in pencil. Plus I would like to play with it in color. However, I did promise  tygati I'd do a pencil piece, so I put more polish into it than I would just a sketch for a digital painting.

Avenging Angel

I was going for ethereal and fierce. This is the third of the images that I came up with for the calendar (not including pieces I already had sketches for). I might post the list of the concepts for each piece I plan for the calendar.

Eeee! *_____* Yes, this is exactly how I fell in love with your art in the first place. *quietly swoons* Oh he's gorgeous. I love the little angel statues all around him, similar but with less detail so that he really stands out with his feathers and his hair and his tassel and his loincloth and... *__* Purr.

:) Thanks! I was hoping it would make you happy. :)

As usual you're so in tune with the details. The lesser detail in the statues was for the reason you said, and also to make clear they were statues.

Very much so. *purr* It is beautiful.

P.S. Any chance of getting this as a print? ^^;

Yeah, I could make it available. DeviantArt does prints but I'm waiting for the weekend to post it to any galleries. I'll look into where's the better deal for getting prints and let you know.

*puppy tail wagging* The weekend has passed. Prints yet?

(nice icon lol)

I've been checking to see where would have the best prices for a print. Strangely a lot of the custom products sites don't have as much of a selection for prints. :(

It seems like DeviantArt is the best option, with the most size choices and the better price. (I've made prints available there and at Cafepress) There should be a link to my gallery there in my lj links panel or use this:

Ooooooooooh, this is amazing and overly-pretty and OMG WINGS!!!

Thanks :) I almost was going to leave this at the basic sketch stage because all the odd angles (and angels lol) were a bit intimidating to do in pencil without putting a *lot* of time into it, and digital has spoiled me.

... And I'll have a lot more wings in the coming weeks. ;) Fairy, angel, demon, all sorts.

I may have to save enough to get this calendar. Yay, WINGS! =^_^=

:) *cough*Yes, you should*cough* ;) lol

I just posted more info about the calendar. It's still in the 'working on it' stage so the info is mainly an outline of what I'm working towards and some teasers of design sketches and such.
