SPN Reunion: Re-Winged by magna-est-veritas SPN Reunion: Re-Winged by magna-est-veritas
EDIT: I attempt to make the wings realistic. I've upload the original in my fanart folder if you preferred it. ^^ (I kinda do, in a way...)

Technically, this thing was inspired by cloudyjenn's fanfiction: "The Soul Piece". It was kinda what I was imagining during chapter 34 and it wouldn't go away until I drew it.

So, it's Castiel, in his true form, finally finding Dean in Hell after battling demons and taking on some collateral damage.

Thanks! I have a new technique I'm going to be trying out to get them more realistic, so we'll see how that goes!

Thank you! I'm glad you decided to check it out. I'm planning to do at least three more from "Soul Piece" and I'm mulling over some for a couple of your other ones. ^^

I couldn't do it in a straight shot, so it was a few hours each day for 5-6 days.

Very nice. I love this story too....wish it would update. lol

I really love the damage you inflicted upon the wings. It really does lend it to a 'been through hell' feel. Love it. I like your version of Castiel's true form. Bold move.

Me too, but I can wait, though it pains me, because I know once cjenn does, it'll be awesome.

Thank you! I was thinking the same thing when I started the wings, but they fought me on it. They wanted to be kinda in-between white/gold, and I had to explain to them several times about how they had to reflect Cas' struggle to get to his soul mate. Eventually, they agreed.

And Cas, I had a feeling that people would probably respond more to Jimmy-Cas, but I wanted to be a bit more true to the fanfiction and I like the idea of Dean knowing Cas by his true form.

Oh that's beautiful! The wings look like a phoenix (good symbolism) and they look so gratful to be together again... AWWWW! Sweet! Love the dark red fiery colors.

I wish I could take credit by saying that I intentionally included phoenix symbolism through the wings so as to highlight Dean's resurrection and Cas' evolution into a free-willed angel, but I'm afraid that brilliance is yours!

I was just really trying to go for battle-damaged but beautiful to show what Cas had to go through, but I rather like your hidden meaning. Now I'm going to see it every time I look at this thing.

Thank you!

No worries. This happens to me a lot. I notice something in an artist's work that they didn't realize themselves- though I do think maybe on a deep, subconscious level those symbols exist buried and ready to be tapped into. Where else do we get our inspiration from?

(And that's enough groovy mystisism for me to ponder on a Thursday- LOL!)

I just have a sip a coffee and listen to a few of my professors discuss how a painting of flowers is intrinsic to the struggle between life and death, and I'll have my quota done for the day too. lol!

I know! I click it at least once a day for a re-read. I plan to draw a few more "scenes" from it. Maybe more depending on the next chapters. ^^
