wow, awesome drawing!

i am in shock.

you should provide a backstory for this as well.
his face, body, skin texture and injuries/stitched face looks insanely good!

even his posture marks the fact that he is tired/weary of this horrifying enviroment.

i assume he is the good guy, eh?
glorious drawing. i am speechless, do more

Amnesia is a great game - what you see is frightening, and what you don't is even worse!

That is one decayed angel!! I think that it would be extremely depressing for an angel to have to live on our level, in the 3rd dimension. Wonderful depiction!!

Some would thrive. Maybe if they were cast out for a reason.

I'm in just the right headspace for more allegorical work at the moment, so you should be seeing a lot more!

Wow , t'is awesome done and makes me think to one of my favorite songs who'se text goes really well with this picture : "there's not much left to love/too tired today to hate/I feel the empty/ I feel the minute of decay/I'm on my way down now/I'd like to take you with me" It's a song by Marilyn Manson ...<3
Hehe , t'is one turned out so incredibly good XD

Thanks! I've really missed working in this style. There's a Samael song called "Angel's Decay" that doesn't rate that highly on my playlist, but the title was pretty evocative. I've got a few more sketches inspired by My Dying Bride songs that I'll take further in the next few months.
