Gabriel is angel of death and god's messenger:
Yes, the action takes place in the coliseum and I watched the Gladiator movie to get inspiration.
Special thanks goes to :iconbirdman007:, Chico & Kat, for help with this painting.

Awesome painting! I don't see how Gabriel is lawful evil though, if anything I would think true neutral since as you stated death is inevitable. Nothing good or evil about it.

A beautiful piece, Vitaly, but Gabriel is the messenger. If it were any specific angel, it would be Michael. Nevertheless, the details are amazing!

Angel of death is Azrael? Gabriel is the envoy of god.

Lawful evil huh. Interesting. I am curious about why you would view death as evil and not say neutral or good.
