The paint was HEAVILY inspired by Derek Schubert's version from the Painted Gallery/Data Card.

 

Thanks for the nod, Kelcore. The grey wings and crimson accenting give your version a much harder, darker feel than mine -- a guardian angel who's at least as much about attack as defense. You took "gold armor and bluish-pale skin" and made the scheme your own. Nice work!

This is a great conversion Kelly! I have to admit I am a bit surprised to find Gerard's axe didn't find a new home with the Angel, though ::D:.

 

The paint job is super spiffy as well; it's a very cohesive piece, which can be hard when you're doing a big Feathered Flying... angel. (Had to turn off my alliteration mode in a hurry there).

Then I can add another set of deva wings to my RCon Boneyard shopping list... :;):

DANG! Those wings are awesome!

 

<!--inside joke>

Hey Kelly... for the record I'd throw in my RIGHT one too!

</inside joke>

Well, at least then you'd be anatomically correct. ;)

 

Dude... :blink:

 

"Sweet..."

 

*is suddenly ashamed of himself for indulging in that movie-quote buffoonery*

 

 

Holy wingdings, those appendages could kill somebody! No wonder he now gets *self-censured* attacks. Brilliant conversion and paint job.

 

LOL! That was the idea, Mengu! Thanks!

 

 

I like the way the wings are done. How did you get the color effects?

 

Thanks! Errmmm...colors used were Cloudy Grey, Misty Grey, and Pure white for the lightest parts (with a very thin glaze of Blue Liner to pick out the details) The darker parts are Blue Liner highlightee with Ghost White and Pure White.

 

 

Absolutely Bl**** Awesome ! :blink::blink:

 

Thanks BM!

 

 

Lovely paintjob.

Odd name... Wasn't Uriel the one who got thrown out of heaven for having intercourse with humans? I could be confusing things here...?

 

Thanks. Seems to me I saw the name Uriel in conjunction with the words "Angel of Death" at one point in time. But *shrug* I didn't name him. :)

Kelcore - This thing is hardcore.

 

Excellent painting - great mod.

 

(The only thing to make it an 11 on the Woo scale - is a flock of green-stuffed doves flying towards the camera...).

 

Seriously - how long have you been at this painting thing?

 

Thanks VV. I've been painting (seriously and semi-seriously) since the summer of 2000. I'm not including the dry-brush wonder I was in elementary school. I was just a kid and didn't know squat. Plus, I put it down when I was a teenager.

And thank you for the compliment, Derek. I'm both floored and honored that you'd say so!

Thanks John. Heh. I thought about it, but when it came right down to it: Gerry's axe is just slightly too wee for my liking on the Angel. It may show up on a different fig in the future, though. ;)

 

Good catch on the alliteration. He totally is. ;)

 

 

I absolutely adore the general feel of this piece. I've even taken the liberty to post a pic on a different forum ::):

 

Sweet! Well, so long as credit's given where it's due. What forum?

 

Then I can add another set of deva wings to my RCon Boneyard shopping list... :;):

OMFG.

 

Dude, your ReaperCon Army is going to be scaryawesomelooking!

 

LOL! Thanks Bryan! But unless I'm gifted with a small pile of cash sometime soon (unlikely), there's no way I can make it to RCon this year. As much as I want to.

Just paint two of everything, sell half of it, and you are there!

Origins is still a "maybe" for me, Deb. The only "probably" for me is GenCon. Though I do hope to have a workable army by at least Origins. Time will tell.
