On Frail Wings of Vanity and Wax Picture

Because Alesana is like, the most amazing band in the world (along with A Perfect Circle, Three Days Grace, RED, and many others). I love how their album "On Frail Wings Of Vanity And Wax" is inspired by Greek mythology. It is seriously just awesome. Even their album title references the myth of Icarus. And so, to honor this awesome band, I wanted to draw a picture inspired by this album.

So here we have Sorrel falling through the sky. I guess she's a pretty vain character (well, at least, now she will be). This was one of the first times that I tried lining my work with the one-pixel brush, and I have to say that it has become my outline of choice. It helps to keep a lot of the detail in the sketch.

Just so you know, I love drawing wings (especially feathered wings), but I really suck at them. So these wings are undersized and pretty anatomically incorrect for how a real bird's wing would look.
