This actually looks like Homura Akemi's demon form and Puella Magi Madoka Magica is heavily based on hope and despair.

This is amazing! Please do one of an angel just like that sitting by a fountain with her feet dipped into the water with only one side of her face showing ^^ Pretty please? It would mean a lot!!

In the small thumbnail she looks like she is puking over a drinking fountain after a long hangover from a “hell” of a party.

LOL when I saw this I immediately thought "Mockingjay" for some reason. Guess the two depressing things just linked in my mind...

This is perfect! The details and colors are great. I love everything; her wings, her long wavy hair, her dress, and her black overall appearance against white background. ^^

Is she a Weeping Angel?
