First off before I get overly harsh critiques this is the first anime piece I've done without any dependence on the pen tool except for lineart. Everything is coloured by painting including the hair. Things may need to be blended more, but I was experimenting a lot with this piece. That being said, I always welcome critique, I just want to keep that in mind
I also wanted to try a style which is slightly more mature and less.. loli
Still doesn't look overly old but yeah.
Alexiel is my favourite character of all time. I adore Angel Sanctuary and my online name is from a character in that manga. I should have done a piece like this earlier, but I never did. I did an odd chibi of her once which is practically blasphemous to her character, but
I hope Angel Sanctuary fans enjoy it at least ^_^
