A place where people who have an interest in Angel Art, can meet. Angels of Light, Fallen Angels, Gothic, Surreal, romantic, preraphaelite-like, Magna / Anime. They are all welcome...
The only prerequisite is that they should be created by a Traditional artist!
Also, dark and Gothic, is welcome but nothing too violent or obscene, please...


:bulletblue: No photo-manipulation / digital creations, or Digital coloring please!

If you are using paints - oils, acrylics, watercolor, gouache - or pencils, charcoal, markers etc, you are welcome to show your work here, and share your art creations with all who feel an affinity with the Angelic realms...

:bulletblue: PLEASE, PLEASE!!!! (I can't stress this enough!!!), write in the artist's comments the media you used to create the painting you have submitted, in order to have it included in this Gallery! (How to do that: go to your Deviation page and click on "edit Deviation", then add under "Artists comments" the media you have used and then click on "Save Changes".

:bulletblue: At this point, submit as many deviations as you like. But please only finished paintings.

:bulletblue: Make sure you submit your artwork to the proper sub gallery. It is preferable not to add your images in the "Featured" folder but in one of the rest of the folders, since the "Featured" one, displays representative images out of all the folders featured here. How to do that: Choose the right Folder in which to submit your work (i.e: "Angels of Light", then click on "Submit to this folder" and choose your image. (I may however place them in a different folder than they one you have submitted...)

:bulletblue: About the folder "Dark and Gothic Winged creatures" and "Winged Gods", I mean Anthropomorphic Winged creatures. No more black birds please. Otherwise this will turn into a group for bird lovers :-)

Our affiliate group Myths-and-Fantasy myths-and-fantasy.deviantart.c… Spring ContestHello members of :iconmyths-and-fantasy:
I want to start a series of contests for this group, like a contest for every season.
I thought about a topic for a group so diverese and came up with the 4 elements: earth, fire, air, and water. :bulletgreen::bulletred::bulletwhite::bulletblue:
So for spring I would like to start with the element EARTH. :bulletgreen:
The idea:
Every artist can make an artwork for the topic earth. Those of you, who like to do dragons can submit artworks with earth-dragons, or tree-dragons, or what other creative ideas you have;  those of you, who love to do fairies can submit flower-fairies, earth-fairies, or what other creative ideas you have; those of you, who like to do monsters and demons can submit earth-monsters; and so on...
I hope that the topic earth is a broad enough subject for every fantasy-artist to work with. :)
:bulletyellow: All sorts of materials/media are allowed: photography, digital/trad
is holding a Spring/earth contest myths-and-fantasy.deviantart.c…?

Theme: Earth
Deadline: 31 May 2012 (can be expanded)

I am promoting A Contest for Sarah's Christian Book series Seekers?

Seekers tells the story of Wilfride Beth Carter, a child born of evil's fire destined to become queen of Hell however things don't go as planned when she is born with a powerful Ice God has given her, an Ice so cold she can freeze the air you breathe. No one knows why God has chosen the daughter of death(Cryptimus) to carry this power. All they do know is, She has made up her mind and is choosing to follow him for not only has given a gift everyone wants but also has shown her things no one can explain. Leaving everything she ever knew behind, she sets off to begin in an era of Tribulation.

Hello everyone in this wonderful group!

I was just inducted into being the group's new co-founder, and I'm really honored to have such a role. I wanted to introduce myself.

Tiny-Physcic-Vampire has a lot of personal work to do with her senior year ( traditional-angels.deviantart.… ) and needed some help with this group. I love drawing angels, and I'm a traditional artist, so the opportunity was like a dream come true!

If she'll allow, I'd love to really transform this group into something bustling with beautiful heavenly art and a lot more interaction between group members! If anyone has idea, please comment. I was thinking about doing member features, more contests, and maybe even eventually trying for super group!

A little about me:
My main project having to do with angels is my comic "Ethereal." It's based on the Book of Revelation from the Bible and features a lot of archangels and other, more obscure,  angelic figures.

Here is the description: When part of God rebelled from the Trinity, it upset the whole divine order. A previously functioning earth turned chaotic, and Safriel watched her European dominion collapse before her eyes. She had always been decent at her job, but she wasn't planning on becoming the pawn between two powerful beings. As she is forced to fight for her life, she makes a dangerous ally and questions both his authority and her loyalty to God. She is desperate for answers as she struggles to survive as the unwilling agent of the most powerful beings in the universe.

Some art from it!

I'm open to any questions or suggestions! I look forward to meeting you all. :)

And here is a shout out to our founder and current contributors:
:icontiny-physcic-vampire: :iconaodhagain: :iconerik-tan: :iconkxushka: :iconprpltennisgrl:
Hey guys,
I'm so sorry to do this to you guys, but as I've entered my senior year of high school I've found myself getting extremely stressed and getting quite ill quite often.
As a result I no longer have the time I would like to dedicate to the running of this group. If anyone would like to help me out by becoming either a new founder or at least a co-founder that would be a great help!
