These are my so far few products of the Buffy/Angelverse. Let me know if I chose right to major in Graphic Design hehe. ;)

So far all pieces are either Bangel or Cangel fangirling. For a short time I was into Bangel but as I got further into Angel and saw what he and Cordelia had, they were easily the most real and natural couple in my opinion so I was quickly converted.

Bangel:


Lyrics: Beautiful Goodbye by Amanda Marshall


Lyrics: Beautiful Disaster by Kelly Clarkson

Cangel:


Lyrics: 10 Thousand Miles by Mary Chapin Carpenter.


Alright so yeah this is the same image I'd initially used for Bangel with Cangel instead. Long story here.
I wasn't able to use the original PSD as my flash drive carrying my entire computer life corrupted and with it all the files on it; they could not be opened, moved or even deleted, they were reading as not existing.
After my step father fiddled with it only some files became recoverable, my Buffy/Angelverse files were unfortunately NOT among them.
So I ended up having to work over the jpeg of the Bangel manip. I couldn't help it, I liked this post too much hehe.

This is my first original Cangel manip, done last night. It's not my best due to all the clone stamp work it required, I'm terrible with the clone stamp.
It was a book cover I'd come across on Google with a male character that just screamed Angel. The title was 'Messenger's Angel' so I decided to keep the title but change Messenger's to Cordelia's. That's where it got the most sloppy.
Considering that I didn't think I could pull it off at all I'm pretty pleased with how it came out.



Drawings:
I'm a really bad artist with a pencil but I want to improve and so I practice. So far I've got only one Buffy/Angelverse drawing.

Angel's vamp face:

Just finished up this manip that I spent a large part of last night working on and I'm quite pleased with it.

Love the last one you have done :) Manips are hard work I find, I've tried a few.... not with great results but as I say they are hard to do imo.

Thank you very much. They are difficult a lot of the time, it's true. It depends largely on the images you are working with. Cordelia's Angel was by far my hardest.
The one you pointed out, I struggled some with the wings, they were originally all black but I thought it would fit to have some white over them but finding a set that fit over nicely--quite a task.

Here is a piece which focuses on Cordelia's struggle with her visions in ATS.

Poem via @PoemPorns on Twitter.
This account posts several beautiful poems, thoughts or quotes and this one instantly made me think of the struggle we see Cordelia having with her visions in ATS which is addressed in season 3 and that it's exactly how she deceived Angel while keeping him in the dark.
