Why? Why does everyone depict Dorian Gray with black hair? The book clearly states he is blond haired, and this is emphasized by his looks being described as "angelic beauty". While I prefer the "wheels upon wheels" angel depictions (hooray for mind-blasting*!), traditionally angels are depicted as blond haired.
I was telling this to Dale, and he told me I should draw Dorian Gray, so I did.
Clearly I am as inspired as Basil.**
*Mind-blasting is not recommended for any mortal ever, and one should not take Frank Peretti's depictions of angels as realistic.
