I love the whole painting style, and above all the play of the lights and shadows. How the shadowy forest gives a melancholic and/or "something bad is looming in the near future" kind of feeling. And how there is the light of the crepuscular rays in the background, it is still Eden after all. And how the halo still differs from it. And that marvelous golden-lit color of wings. And how, after the coils, the snake's body is curled up slightly resembling a question mark, as if Crowley would be asking "Okay, I like making messes, this was a good one, but seriously, what now?" All in all, beautiful. So very calm and beautiful.
Thank you so much! Seriously, I'm so glad that the artwork manages to convey that. I wanted the trees to give an appearance of fencing them, while at the same time being much darker than the pretty, lit centre.
And speaking of snake!Crowley, I am glad that you liked him. (Apropos of that, when I was finished with the artwork I was worried that someone would notice that Crowley's tail wasn't holding onto anything. Since snakes use their tail to 'hook' themselves to trees, he's probably feeling like he's in the process of slipping off. Oops.)
