but anyway check out the wings i got for my mesmer 

since u cant change backpack colors i had to add more green stuff into his outfit (worked out pretty well tho, cuz wings are more blue/turquoise when not glowing). wings are fluttering slowly, and the hanging jewelery bits are wobbly which is rly nice


Whaddup…showing the in progress series for Maxwell…as you can see, he started out in a tshirt (what he was wearing in the reference photo)  I wanted him in a suit, but didn’t want to lose his fly azz tatt, so I decided to have him rip a sleeve…that wasn’t the pose…had to take a camera phone pic of my own hand for positioning then add veins and shit to make it manly….the things we do for love (of our art).  Hope you enjoy - TERRI! The ILLESTrator

Pretty Wings-Maxwell

[Verse 1:]
Time will bring the real end of our trial
One day they’ll be no remnants
No trace, no residual feelings within ya
One day you won’t remember me

Your face will be the reason I smile
But I will not see what I cannot have forever
I’ll always love ya, I hope you feel the same

Oh you played me dirty, your game was so bad
You toyed with my affliction
Had to fill out my prescription
Found the remedy, I had to set you free

Away from me
To see clearly the way that love can be
When you are not with me
I had to leave, I have to live
I had to lead, I had to live

If I can’t have you, let love set you free
To fly your pretty wings around
Pretty wings, your pretty wings
Your pretty wings around

[Verse 2:]
I came wrong you were right
transformed your love into light
baby believe me I’m sorry I told you lies

I turned day into night
sleep till I died a thousand times
I shoulda showed you
Better night better times better days
I miss you more, more

If I can’t have you, let love set you free
To fly your pretty wings around
Pretty wings, your pretty wings
Your pretty wings around
