This is so breathtaking.
I am seeing this art as a expression. I like the colors and lighting .. red lips and mask. As an angel is some kind of a liar.. That left wing of first I was thinking..Oh its a pitty its cut out BUT.. she is pushing away something .. and giving herself space to stay so in a one way she is backing off.
It just makes me wanna stare and think about what she was thinking when she was "pushing" that something away. Maybe something good or bad. Is she good or bad. That is the question :D
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
38 out of 41 deviants thought this was fair.

:sushi: This Piece is brilliant and even saying that is somewhat and understatement.

The idea and concept is brilliant, A pure white angel who for some reason does not fit your generalised idea of what an angel should look like.
The technical aspect of this piece is amazing, only losing half a star because one of the wings is cut off, i know you may have wanted that to be that way, but following the aspects of guidelines of design you really should have included the full wing.

Full stars for originality, because i have not seen something like this before, it is unique and brilliant.

do i even need to comment on the impact? i think simply stating *stunned* is enough.

Lux Aeterna meaning eternal light it is a very fitting name, the angel is the embodiment of light in many a lore.

All in all one of my favourite pieces on deviantaArt, The artists is truly talented:sushi:

I really like this work because it is dark, even though colors are very light. Position of hands seemingly innocent, lips attractive, lush and alive, angel-like wings are beautifully pure looking. But eyes are concealed and that is an omnious sign. Also somewhat of a scultpure-looking, ashy feel to the body again creates feelings of non-existence. Here death is not represented in an obvious ways, but far more intelligently, glimpses of death are portraed by negating or concealing life-like aspects of the model.

This is beautiful, like a dove of ice and snow. Actually makes me miss the beauty of winter; the hazy snowfall that encompases everything in white and brings a sence of peace. Sadly we've been having a HUGE lack of that where I live *shakes fist at the sky* This time of year I should be walking through the woods surrounded by snow and ice and admiring the effect the falling snow has on the world around me. :P But this certainly takes my mind there :)
