Descend from the Heavens by Caz-Lock Descend from the Heavens by Caz-Lock
Finally! This piece has been a long time coming, but I think it was worth it.

I originally sketched this in 2006 and finally decided my colouring skills were good enough to attempt a final version. I changed a few things; namely the background as I felt the original was too flat. I feel the real clouds are a lot more dramatic than the original ones I sketched in.

It has taken me at least 40 hours to ink and colour this piece and was done on around 30 layers.

You can find the original pencil sketch here: [link]

Paper texture came from: [link] (thank you!)

___________

Thagya was inspired by a number of different things. The main ones were:

* A statue of the Buddhist Diety Thagya I saw in a museum.
* Valkyries
* Soul Calibur

I worked long and hard on this character so please no stealing!

___________

Original Sketch: Pencil
Inked and painted in Photoshop CS3

Well, the lower part of the body seems a bit small, the dress flow doesn't suit the hair flow well, the color looks nice (:D) and the big file size is quite ... @_@
