Little Wings by Saimain Little Wings by Saimain
A pretty little portrait of Sali, painted over the last few nights when I should have been working on other things (as usual). But pastel colors were a new challenge for me, and Sali was just begging to be painted in them, so I couldn't resist. ^__^

You can learn more about Sali and the "Not All Kings Wear Gold" storyline here: [link]

This has to be one of my favorites. I play in an angelic RP and I have to say that this is almost exactly what I have pictured my Guardian Angel and her Arch angel husband's child would look like should they have one. Sali is just adorable and your work is amazing!

I've always been rather intrigued with the ability people have at painting with SUCH beautiful lucidity, such natural talent. I've dabbled with paints before, but never with such accuracy. And while colored pencils work more naturally for me, I've never tried anything so detailed as this. Great job! I'm glad I stumbled across this.

This is a beautiful picture -- so thoughtful, innocent.

Is he albino, or is it something else? Maybe it is because he has white wings?

He is very nearly albino, yes. White hair, wings, and eyelashes, but his eyes are turquoise. ^__^

Oh, and another question! Correct me if I'm wrong, yeah, but Sali's an albino, right? If so...shouldn't he have...red eyes?
Reply
:iconsaimain:
Saimain Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2008  Professional General Artist
He's not really albino, no, but he's often compared to one because he's so pale.

But, darling, aren't pastels crayons? How come you managed to paint Sali with 'em without going over the lines? OK, let's just put it this way, I'm lost - I'm not sure what medium you used. "Painted" and "pastels" are both wiggling their backsides at me in order to confuse me.

Pastel is a set of colors, not only a medium. :)

Sali is so adorable! The pastles really cause soft a soft aura for this picture that suits him perfectly.
I also love the subtle blues and pinks hidden within his pale hair, it causes highlights to come out all the more!
His glossy lips and pale eyelashes are wonderful details as well.

Sali is such an energetic happy boy that it makes one smile. In this picture however, you capture such a wonderful serenity with him.

Great job on another beautiful piece of art. You are just so talented! :)
