Modern angel


Before creating this drawing, I was wondering "if angels were changed by modern society, what would they look like?". So I started brainstorming a little and liked the idea of an angel dressed in old fashioned clothes, as if it tried developing it's taste for clothing but got stuck in some era or another. There would probably be influences of our society that's based on consuming and throwing away. So I came up with the pizza wings. Finally, I wanted to have the lost hope on the face reflected in something, so I added a withering bouquet.

For this drawing I used HB penciss to get the basic lines on paper, which I then inked with fineliners and markers. After the inks had dried, I erased the pencils.
