The Broken Angel by TwilitAngel The Broken Angel by TwilitAngel
DOWNLOAD FOR FULL SIZE PLZ~

Here is probably the single darkest piece of art I've posted so far... Sorry in advance if it puts anyone off, but I felt the need to kinda... express myself... for once. I'm going through kind of sad/lonely/depressing time in my life right now, due to some heartbreak I'm having a rough time dealing with...

But what better time than ever to give the first glimpse at my most evil and disturbing OC, am I right? But this is literally a glimpse, as this isn't even the true face of this OC. The character in this piece is known as "Broken Aaron" (or Broken Angel Aaron), the form of my main OC Aaron (based off myself) when he's being temporarily possessed by his inner evil: a nameless, genderless being simply known as "Aaron's Shadow", who is the concentrated embodiment of all pain and despair within Aaron's soul and frequently refers to himself as the "real" Aaron.

As you should be aware of by now, my OC Aaron is, in fact, an angel. In his Broken Angel form, Aaron's normally pure white angel wings become stained black and decay as they rot away, his skin becomes fractured and breaks away (reflecting the damage being done to his soul) as the true body of Aaron's Shadow comes to the surface, tears of blood create black scars down the sides of face and the marking on his chest (which you normally never see) mutates into the marking of Aaron's shadow (also shown in the background), revealing several more creepy eyes. In this form, Broken Aaron has an ability called "Demon's Blood" that allows him to manipulate his own blood in various ways to attack; this being only one of several of his somewhat... broken... abilities. Pun intended.

To really sum up what this form is, it's basically a form between a "Guardian Angel" and a "Fallen Angel" (Thus the meaning of the text). A stage of metamorphosis between the two, where an angel cannot become a guardian angel, yet possesses willpower enough to fight becoming a fallen angel, but inevitably and slowly, will. So it's truly a tragic and terrifying form...

Sorry for the lengthy description, but it's a pretty deep character I've been slowly developing for the longest time, and at the moment I (sadly) relate to. I know it must be strange seeing something like this after all the cutesy, lovey and light-hearted things I've posted, but hey, we all have our darkness, even me. And mine just happens to be scarier than most. I guess it just makes sense... the man who stands the closest to light, casts the largest shadow. It's the curse of the kind of life I've chosen to live...

....HA HA.... Poetry. :iconphilkensebbenplz:

But as you can see, even during all my sadness, I do have my sense of humor. I'm still... me. :icondignitylaughplz: And you can expect to see some more normal artwork from me soon. So hang tight, ok? Please don't un-watch me all of sudden or avoid my gallery! :iconomgwtfbbqplz: I swear, it's just a moment of emo.... >////> Though I may expand more on this character in the future, and show you the real nightmare-ish form of Aaron's Shadow. :iconscaredplz:

I can relate to this, thanks to my brokenhearted non-existent relationships I've endured over the years. But I'm now 27-years-old, but it's better now.

But it certainly wasn't that way a year ago, and thus, I drew this, to mask my pain I was feeling at the time. It's not as dark as your picture, but just as deep:

lol -> "i swear, it´s just a moment of emo" i think there is nothing emo to express yourself, no matter in which form you do it.
almost a perfect shadow seal. :XD: this character could never be an angel for me. not a broken, fallen or guarding one. everything screams on him: SHADOW. xDDD but you know him better than me.

you put a lot of thought into it and it is a very awesome made Picture. amazing work and a cool character. :nod:

This is truly an amazing piece~ I saw it and--as dark and weird as it may seem--it caught my eye and I fell in love with it. It's so dark and evil, yet there's a hint of sadness because he's been through so much. Those lines that are coming down from his eyes look like tears but more like tears of blood? I'm not sure but it looks awesome!

Now I know why he looks so familiar! Not too mention, I suddenly have "Fallen Angel" by Black Vail Brides stuck in my head right now, thanks to this picture... ^^;

Which is actually totally kick-ass, I might add. ;)

Most people see this as a sad or tragic drawing, but I see it as a symbol of hope since teh artist clarifies specifically that he is a broken angel and we all know most things things that are broken can be fixed and repaired back to their rightful appearance/demeanor I hope the artist saw that in this work of art when he was creating it.
