Archangel Uriel, the archangel of the earth and regent of the Sun. The concept behind this picture was to depict an angel weighed down with the heavy responsibility of guarding the gates of Hell, yet still he stands, ever vigilante and strong while the ages pass around him. Uriel means Light of God, and he is indeed a light in those depths so closest to the root of the earth farthest from Heaven. There he waits undertaking his duty with all the grace and strength imbued in him by the creator. Waiting till the day when he will destroy the gates of Hell and begin Heaven's reign. This rendition is a tad different than the traditional, but something that just sort of came to me.

I used a combination of prismacolor color pencil for the main figure and vines and watered down arcrylics for the background. The next angel I hope will be Gabriel, if time allows.
