Castiel - War by inklou Castiel - War by inklou
Man I put this off for so long and now I can finally say I am 90% done with it huff! I totally still need to edit a hell of stuff in there before I send this to print (this will be sold at Anime Revolution).

Primary inspiration for this is my all-time gods Poets of the Fall and their song "War". It's funny how I actually thought of Castiel and Supernatural the moment I heard of it, rather than Alan Wake x) So here's my attempt to get the idea onto canvas...

There's also another inspiration on atmosphere, the godly OST of Deus Ex: Human Revolution by Michael McCann, in particular, "Endings". Just...just listen. You'll totally get what I mean by the 'atmosphere of epicness'.

Wow, this is stunning. Colors to me are very important and this has a very nice mood setting color scheme. And I really like the light coming from gaps in the clouds down to the below graves. And the wind blowing his clothes around? You did that well.

First, you art is amazing, like all your works; and second, you're right...the lyrics and the atmosphere of the song really fit the SPN's war between Heaven, Hell and the Righteous Men trapped in between!
The first time I heard it (following your link) I instantly thought of Castiel and the Winchester boys (esp the profound bond between Dean and Castiel, all those sacrifices, and the whole "I did it all for you" thing) :wow:
And of course PotF just had to include 'White crippled wings beating the sky' in the lyrics, that just adding more ice cream to the pie :D they were thinking about SPN while writing the song perhaps? Talking about correlated coincidence :XD:

ahhh your comment makes me so happy!! xD I'm glad you're seeing the same concept within the song as I do. Haha I'm not sure what POTF drew inspiration from when they did the song. Marko, the lead singer and lyrics writer said that if you truly want to know what he meant exactly in the lyrics you would have to talk to him personally or else it'll just end up being your own interpretation, no matter how 'obvious' the meaning of his songs sounded...very interesting xD

lol sorry, geeking out a little here. anyways, thanks for the comment! xD

This is really epic! Great job on the colors, the feel, and the details. I can hear the wind whipping at his clothes and wings. I listen to DE:HR OST every day, it is my favorite playlist ever. Great choice!
