This is amazing! Have you ever read the Maximum Ride books? That's what this reminds me of. So beautiful! The technique on the feathers are great! This is also very original! The human part of this masterpiece is phenomenal! Great drawing of a human! Better than I've ever seen! The shading is wonderful and the background makes it seem magical and mysterious! I love how she is sitting in the brick confinement with her wings shielding or guarding her. Hence the name sanctuary for the artwork! I love that name and the meaning of it!
Well all in all, it's great!

This is truly remarkable, visual and color not to mention the model are magnificent and inspiring, I love how you payed attention to detail with the face, hair, wings and the nest, it shows the soft and kind hearted side of the image.
I love the transition from the background as well as the greater spectrum between light and dark, believe me there aren't enough angels in the world caught in such a vulnerable moment such as this. Another amazing art work in my favorites, well done :D I would also like to feature this in my journal if that is alright with you.
