Default Chasing a Blue Angel

Just thought I'd toss up a wip pic of a commission I'm doing that, for fairly obvious reasons, I've taken to calling the Blue Angel. Not quite done, but getting close. Metals need a bit of touch ups, along with the purity seals. Should have finished pics up around, say, tomorrow. Not the best pics either, but I'm screwing around with a new photo set up, and haven't quite got the hang of it yet.

Very Nice work

The blue is very deep and the metals look great.

That is awesome! The wings have a very cool shape and coloring. The "angel" himself also certaintly fits his name. :P

The painting is great but I might do something about the basing. Because you didn't bend the legs at all to match the uneven ground, it looks a little unnatural as it is. Not a lot, but just enough to be noticeable. i wouldn't worry about it if you already have him pinned down.

I have to agree with Khanaris, I'm not keen on the leaning pose, but regardless of that, it is a very nice model.
