This is the (semi) clean lineart of Gabriel's true form. After doing a failed colored pencil version, I've decided that I'll probably color this digitally instead... I think he deserves it.
At any rate, this is why you don't mess with Gabriel. When in this form, he is extremely strong, extremely fearsome, but it has one major drawback. He's rendered blind.
Well, its a little more complicated than that. If Gabriel were to open his eyes in this form, everyone before him in sight range would be ripped apart molecule by molecule. Basically disintegrated on sight without prejudice or mercy.
On another note, Gabriel is one of three creatures in my story with this amount of wings and power, though it seems as though he is the only one with that kind of destruction centered on the eyes. He hates using this form because he needs someone to direct him to fight in this form, so he doesn't open his eyes and annihilate everyone. As you can tell that would be a hard job... You'd need to be gifted with the ability to think on the fly, and you'd have to know a lot about battle and fighting.... hmm I wonder who'd be qualified for that?
I finished inking and coloring this after work, beginning at around 2:30 am and going until around 4:30 am! Oh well its worth it. This is a redo of an old character that featured in a different drawing of mine (not up on the internet sadly).
This has to be my favorite coloring job to date, and luckily my scanner didn't mess it up as badly as it did the others. As for the character, her name is Eira, a Welsh word for snow. her story tends to pop into my head as soon as Winter hits again, and at some point I plan on writing it out. The basic gist is that Eira was born with the power to manipulate snow and ice, no matter the temperature. Her mother, seeing how special her child is, spoils and quite nearly deifies her child, twisting the innocent girl's mind into believing that she can do whatever she wants.
When her mother eventually dies (due to the child's powers no less) her last words to her daughter were "If you want something in life you must take it..." It seems Eira took these words too literally.....
I'm not going to say any more, because it would spoil the surprise! :wink: I think I might draw up some more characters, and give their background as well...
This is the first Character Card for my Demonized Angels series: Lucifer! I've decided recently that Lucifer (or Lucy as some of us have fondly began calling him, much to his chagrin) is my main character of the series!!! Introducing the King of Hell himself, Lucifer!!!
Lucifer's story is something I've been planning out for a while in my head, and actually know quite a bit of... It seems that at least for now, the troubles with Heaven (will be explained later ) are just a spring-point for Lucifer's life in Hell, which is the main focus of the first part of the story! Hell, Gabriel doesn't even show up 'til much later, once I thought on it! (I made a funny! I said "Hell" in Lucifer's description, not as a place... Get it? )
Lucifer: "I'd love to say: When you see his eyes, run, but by the time you see them, it's all over anyways....."
Yet another drawing of Gabriel's full form, but this time he's opening his eyes... Scary. If anyone ever gets him to this point, it means he no longer cares about anything or anyone but the person he is trying to defeat. His power spares no one in eyesight, so he really has to be ready for the consequences if he goes down this route. Gabriel detests this power he has, and when he does use it (very rare), he gets immobilized by guilt for a time afterwards.... Poor guy....
Wings are so much fun to draw, especially his eight of them!
