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.

Freaking luv it. I think that the guy killed the girl and the angel was his girlfriend and he killed her so she avenged her death.

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.
