What a beautiful lineart for the wing...
And I like how it is almost a contrast between the photo-like figure and it's decorative wing and head thingie...
It's really a neat piece. =)

This reminds me of a debate we had in college, our lecturer objected to a class of art students doodling while she talked, not because we weren't paying attention, but because only one student was using a pencil, the rest were using biros etc. She didn't agree that ballpoint pen could produce good work. This amazing, delicate piece proves she was most definitely wrong!
