In the arms of the angels by pbird12 In the arms of the angels by pbird12
My submission for this months :icondraw-along: and my dedication to all the poor souls lost in the terrible Connecticut event :tears:

I actually drew this little girl a long time ago and it was terrible, so I saved her for another time. And she always reminded me of an angel and this song www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Siylv… which is where the title came from.

For this drawing I used the following stock -
~vivstock fav.me/d17lvw7
=Thy-Darkest-Hour fav.me/d5183yt
And this image for the little girl www.sxc.hu/photo/646227

Materials:
A4 Mellotex
Graphite 3H - 6B
Erasers
Blutack
Time: About 10 hours

Thank you for having a look
Paula :heart:

It's quite a small drawing this one and I think it looks more complicated than it really was :)

What a beautiful, beautiful piece! It is emotional and a pleasure to look at both at the same time! Lovely way to separate the background from the foreground in this. Well done!!!

Is this the little white-on-black-girl?
