This is actually a reject from another project. The angelic critter was originally human, but the face was *not* working out. Nor the composition. I tossed it from the project and decided to play with it separately to see if I could save the thing. The asymmetrical wings, the wonky anatomy, and the drapery and banner-thing were too fun to give over to the scrap pile.
Right. So, reworking this thing, it evolved into a kind of Erte-meets-Mardi-Gras-meets-St. Mark (St. Mark is usually represented as a winged lion).
NOW I like it. AND I got to exercise a simple split-complimentary color scheme that I hadn't tried before. YAY, COLOR! Yay, carpal-tunnel!
I did this with ink, watercolor, Prismacolor pencils, and a paint pen.
