Crowley: White Wings by Eldanis Crowley: White Wings by Eldanis
Happy winter, everyone!!

I first thought of this idea some months ago... I don't even remember when, and it made me wibble and flail and so of course I had to draw it. I love Crowley so, and the idea of him making snow angels just kills me, in a good way. It's all deep and meaningful and stuff.

This isn't quite what I wanted it to be; I wanted it to be boyish, carefree Crowley, allowing himself to just be for once, and instead my pencil produced wistful, maybe-a-little-longing Crowley. I'm okay with this too.


[Edit: detail here.]

Crowley is from Good Omens and belongs to Pratchett and Gaiman.

I'm in love with this picture. It's so.... so full of stuff. I just... I can't, give me a moment please. *feels*

I love the way you draw Crowley. You make him very personable and real. Bravo!

This is a beautiful and very in-character portrayal of him. Well done!

While I'll confess to love sexy!Crowley, it's nice to see a more personal side of him. And he looks so adorable!

I love this pic. It's very etheral.

(And the thought of Crowley making snow angels brings a smile to my face. :-) )

Aw, Crowley! :D I love the concept, and you really made it look beautiful :)
Elsebeth Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2012
Oh, this is awesome. I saw this picture and I just wanted to read the book again. (And I wanted Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman to write more books like that) And I really like how you pictured Crowley. Not so badass at all but you can feel the crowleyness <3
It is quite cool :D

I'm sure I've let you know this before, but: this is my most favorite piece of Crowley fan-art, ever. You say just about everything there is to say about him in such a stark, simple, skilfully executed image. I'd love to see more Aziraphale and Crowley from you in the long run; I'm quite sure it'd be more than worth the wait. The Prohibition and burning-bookshop pictures are fantastic, too!

[Beware long-winded overfangirly reply that I can totally admit to composing in a different window, and am making myself send now so that I don't chicken out of it.]

You haven't -- I would remember, trust me. I don't know if you realise what an immensely high compliment and honor it is (how it's practically made my week, in fact), honestly; you are one of the best two (Daegaer is the other, for Bright with His Splendour) writers ever in the fandom, in my opinion, and it's only my own shyness and lurker tendencies that have never let me properly say hello and sing the praises I've long felt. I consistently recommend you to fandom newcomers though (since you were so formative for me), and it's been such a joy to see you writing for GO again lately. You get Crowley in ways it seems too few do, ways that make me hurt with their rightness, with how true they ring.

I think there is very little danger of me not returning to these two, especially Crowley, forever and ever amen. Other fandoms come and go, but Good Omens is eternal. My attentions may wander (for instance I'm currently rather besotted with Loki, but I suspect it's because in his current depiction he reminds me of Crowley in a few ways), but my love will never waver. I honestly don't understand how that even is, how I can still be so in love, over and over, except that perhaps somehow somewhere in the pages of GO, Pratchett and Gaiman unwittingly wove true magic.

I think most of the reason I've never properly talked to you is that on some level I still feel like a newcomer, an interloper even, in the fandom; all of the best people were established, and most of the best things seem to have been made and written (cf. your collabs with Linnpuzzle) before I came around, and I am easily intimidated. If, though, you ever want a collaborative illustrator again -- well. I still feel presumptuous for making the offer, but I'm here. <3

[All that to say: thank you.]

This concept is lovely, and the art is beautiful. You really captured his character well.

I think he looks a little lost.

This is really good.

<3 Oh, that's just gorgeous.
-giggles- Crowley making snow angels... pretty much the last thing I'd expect, and yet... oh, I can just totally understand this picture. I love the serene vibe this picture gives off... completely has the feel of a park or garden full of untouched snow.

Again, absolutely amazing artwork. It really makes me want to write a story based around it... but I won't, because I have far too many writing projects as it is.
canadiankazz Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2010
Beautiful pencil work.
peskylemur Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2010
I love how serene and wistful this is. It's pretty much the last vibe you expect Crowley to give off, but it works so well here. And he's a big dark spot in the middle of all that white snow, the darkest thing in the picture. Which is probably symbolic somehow too. :D

I think this is so Beautiful... Wonderful art! :D
MissElice Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2010
great! i love crowley
kassie Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
You do such amazing work. I especially love your few Good Omens pieces. This one too now! Everything looks so soft and serene. Very lovely.
IraFeye Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2010
-dies of jealousy- Art like this just makes me want to practise more and get much better than I am now...

I mean, I thought I was good at shading but this kicks my ass to... someplace really bad. Great, great job! :hug:
isadorathegreat Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2010
There's a lot of subtle emotion to this piece that really speaks to me. I find it an interesting choice that you drew Crowley without his sunglasses, it makes him seem more vulnerable. I definitely love the shading in the drawing, great job!
mesai Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Superb Crowley!
Gotitm3morizd Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2010
Awww. I just finished this book over the holiday. This is beautiful.

You know I reckon even if you just erase his mouth and run it upwards a little that would change his entire mood without having to redraw it =D it's such a nice piece though regardless of what mood Crowley is in. GO CROWLEY!!!
Shella Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2010
Oh lovely! Like you I was expecting 'Crowley making snow angels' to be humorous; I like how it turned out, pensive and maybe poignant... Very nice =)
Almeruve Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2010
It's Crowley! :glomp: He looks great here, a wonderful drawing :)

Pretty cool :D

p.s. you made him look so much like my boyfriend it kind of scares me!
AElddir Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2009  Student General Artist
Love it! Not a side of Crowley we really got to see in the book, but I like thinking of him this way too. Excellent illustration, as always. :D
IsisConstantine Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2009
Awesome job! :D
fastasaleper Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Wistful and beautiful. Favourited.
Melody-Hikari Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2009  Hobbyist Writer
Awesome job on this. You do amazing work with a pencil in hand. o3o
SeraphimKiss88 Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2009
This is beautiful! It perfectly represents the dichotomy that is Crowley. Saw it over at LJ and had to :+fav: it here. :aww:
EriolNeko Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2009
I think it's oddly appropriate; Crowley is a fallen angel himself, so why wouldn't he make snow angels? There's nothing saying that the angels in the snow are necessarily the 'good' ones.
PenumbraChey Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
An amazing, serene piece...with just a hint of melancholy in the expression.

LamLArts Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2009
Wow, you can almost feel the drawing... Very beautiful!
Negshin Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
LOL, ah brilliant idea XD
I love Crawly too, he's such a great character [I also want a Black Bentley now ^^;]

I actually really love how you've done the snow... cause it really looks like a snow angel ^^
grz3so Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
very nice ;)
LeonaWriter Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
For some reason, this just makes me go 'squeee' so much. It's his expression. And the fact that it's such a very childish thing for the stylish demon to do. Yet it fits him, so well. *_*
Shyshapca Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2009
Awww... it's so sad and beautiful. I really hope, that Crowley will Rise in the end.
Mangsney Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I let out such a big, bittersweet "Awww…" I wish you could have heard it.

Happy Holidays, dear! :xmas:
