An Angel wihtout Wings - Art Post


Gabriel is my favorite angel and I was intrigued by the pairing with Adam, so I jumped on this claim for the [livejournal.com profile] au_bigbang. [livejournal.com profile] cashay wrote a great story about two people forced to deal with each other due to circumstances. And maybe more! Read An Angel without Wings on LJ on AO3

Thank as always to my beta and cheerleader, [livejournal.com profile] uisgich. I couldn't do any of this without you!

Main wallpaper (click for bigger)

I'm a scientist, so in my mind, the creation of life is inextricably linked with the ocean, hence the shell motif. Ocean = cradle of life. My brain, let me show you it.

Individual characters

Adam


Gabriel


Baby


Divider (shells again) and icons:

Again, thank you so much for the wonderful art! I loved working with you and thank you for never loosing your patience even though I'm bad at actually getting back to people ^^"

I love all of the pictures! Seriously, they're awesome :D I especially like Adam's eyes and the care you put into lighting etc. And Gabriel's littly baby bump is so precious and he looks so sad :( The baby is really adorable and I like the way she's sleeping in a shell. The pattern is great as well!

Also the divider? Perfect! :D

I'm curious though how did you get the idea to use shells?
