The Angel Of Retribution by Xerces The Angel Of Retribution by Xerces
Because what goes around, comes around.


I thank you..
To all of my watchers, fans, friends.
From the research I got, this was a good place to head. The overall vote was for a darker image. Angel, Blood and Hate (Revenge, I guess).
Thanks for all the love and appreciation for the past two years :-)

The Photo:
These are my wings. Quite a few hours work there and I almost ended up trashing them. I'm not used to having a wingspan. Ben and Geoff gave me a hand with the bloodwork. And all give your thanks to ~Virik for lying on the ground covered in blood (in a t-shirt available for destruction) for ages!

The Wings:
The wings are made with long black feathers and some ostrich feathers. It consists of 2 layers of feathers with a black foam board between them. The materials will have cost about £25, so they are damn special to me right now!

The Necklace:
That is an awesome necklace I got from a shop in Holt, N. Wales (Paul Burrell Town!). It cost me so little, considering it's basic chain mail..

The Angel Of Retribution:
Don't assume all of this blood will have come from ~Virik. My image of the angel of retribution would be this, but kinda 24/7.
And may the darkness come..

Photography: Geoff
Models: ~Virik and myself.

Please respect the models in all comments.

So is this a fallen angel getting avenging someone evil or is this just a sinister-looking, but good, angel avenging someone good?

If you're a relativist who doesn't believe in such "primitive" notions of good or evil, just humor me.

I love you. Your art is so gorgeous and this piece was the one that captured my attention. I love your dark themes and your artwork is simply gorgeous.

Might I say that you are a beautiful person, without it coming out terrifying?

Very dead indeed! The idea I had for the pic would be that he killed someone, and that the angel is paying him back for killing someone. :)

Dang! o.O I am very impressed. The make-up and costuming are very impressive and you are a very good model. The stance, your arms and hand positions, and your vengful glare all tie together really well and add a teen-angst-esque (for lack of a better term) vibe that I really like. I like the way you hair is blowing in the wind too, that just makes it even more epic. =)

The capture of the hair is all down to my boyfriend getting the shot at the right time! I loved this shot from all the ones he took- it couldn't have been much better, really!
Very glad you like the idea and my modelling too. I would have loved to have had a more vicious weapon, but the stick was crafted in a storm on a field trip, so we thought it kinda had some meaning to us =D#
Very glad you like it!

So good! The explanation of the elements helps me to appreciate it even more. I really like the way the "blood stream" runs under the gate - makes one wonder HOW MUCH blood has been spilled there, and what it looks like on the other side.

:giggle: i felt like putting a camera on the outside of the gate just to see peoples reactions =P
i think most of it got washed off in the rain, but it did make me chuckle a bit! very glad you like it! thank you!
