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?
