Red by Redpyre Red by Redpyre
I needed to draw. A family very close to us was ripped apart when one of their children died in a car accident, and the other is in intensive care. I needed to get stuff out. Here it is.

This is the kind of image that cries out to have a story told about it.  Very evocative.

If you only colored the blood, that would be pretty cool, but it is already freaking amazing! Awesome job! :3 -Holly

I can't describe it because its's beautiful!!!!!

This is so freaking awesome! The wings and the blood make this pic so epic looking
Satowra Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Such raw emotion is hard to come by. A wonderful work of art, indeed. The wings being torn from the body makes it very emotional, I think. :(

Gruesomely beautiful! What a sad story.
Silverdragon892003 Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2011
I'm sorry to hear about that . . . Stunning piece of art though.

MIROIRduSONGE Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
pure emotions. I love it !
Atern0x Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2009
Although it's pretty sketch-like, I'm impressing by the details! I like it and :+fav:
Mee-Ran Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2008
Wow, it's so beautiful, it makes me want to cry!:depressed:

Just amazing.
PJvG Featured By Owner May 24, 2008  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
This is so deep.. I'm speechless..
valnorsith Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2007
It's stunning and breath-taking. It hits me even harder since it is almost perfectly taken out a very dramatic scene in a story I have been writing. Only difference is that in my story, it was a demon named Dregon who was impaled upon those spikes. He died protecting his kin from renegade angels, a particularly cruel one named Anquis leading them, and his soul came to earth to wait for his beloved, an angel named Alexiel, to find him again.

Wow :jawdrop:

MartinStranka Featured By Owner May 1, 2007  Professional Photographer
I am stunned! This is really outstanding piece of art bud! WOW! Well done!
ihni Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2007
My god, that's amazing. It's really beautiful and really sad, and you've done a great job on it.
IanSquall Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2007
I've had this in my favorites forever, but I never really got around to telling you how amazing I think this is ^_^

I was wondering... would you mind if I attempted coloring it? Just for personal use, perhaps, like for a wallpaper. I'd show it to you when I'm done, too, and give you all the deserved credit if I decide to use it.

If not, that's just fine. The drawing is beyond excellent uncolored, I just love coloring things xD
Redpyre Featured By Owner May 9, 2007  Professional General Artist
Wow...I can't believe it took me so long to get back to you on this. At least...I don't think I already replied. Correct me if I did.

Yes, by all means. As long as it really is just for personal use, though. I'm not even sure I'd want the recolored version to be posted on DA. Normally I allow more, but this image is too special to me to be redistributed in any way beyond that.

Have at it, though.
Make sure you show me afterwards. I would love to see it. :)
IanSquall Featured By Owner May 9, 2007
Ah, yep, of course. And I completely understand ^^

I'll show it to you when I'm done. Thanks :D
hatefueled Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2007

Red-Jak Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2006  Student
woa! that's cool dude! very nice shading too by the way!
MartinSilvertant Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2006  Professional General Artist
A great drawing. Nice shading, and absolutely great symbolism. I am sorry to hear the reason for the concept of this drawing, though.
artattack666 Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2006
very sorrowful piece. I'm sorry for the loss of the family's child. you can definately feel the power and emotion in this one, and I think that gives it a sort of strange beauty
lightbird Featured By Owner May 6, 2006  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Amazing drawing! Actually, reminds me of an always depressed friend of mine - when he was 13, his younger sister was killed in a traffic accident. And no comfort could heal that scar.
gloomygir Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2006
So much emotion in this.
I hope everything turns out okay.<3
OrdoThanatoi Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2006
A moving picture.

I'm sorry about the loss they suffered...
HappyNoOodleBoy Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2006

Regen Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2006  Student General Artist
You captured the emotions very well, and you've shown how blatantly final death is.
RecharuKua Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2006

You've got so much talent. It's frightening.

Archercaptain Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2005

Redpyre Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2005  Professional General Artist
What's vampire freaks? I mean...yeah you can use it as long as you somehow give me credit of some kind...but what exactly are you using it on?
constantron Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2005  Hobbyist General Artist
Wow. That's really expressive and kind of scary in a sad way. Life can really suck sometimes, hey?

Redpyre Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2005  Professional General Artist
Wow...thanks. It was done over a couple hours with regular art pencils. It's going to stay sketchy, because I refuse to edit it beyond what I drew that day.
Silith Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2005
Gorgeous job, hun. And I'm very sorry to hear about what happened, even though I'm sure having a near stranger tell you that doesn't do much good...

<3 Please feel better soon.
