"Dark Angel" is a dramatic work resembling a combination of evil power with various portents that are shown in both the subject and his surrounding environment. Dark clouds gather (as the ravens simultaneously form his wings) as fireballs descend from a sky with details so bold as to almost enable one to hear the calamity. Bright colors are made outstanding, and there is a clever melding of the armageddon realm with the character. Contrast is bold, and the angel bears a supernatural strength, facial expression, and otherworldly weapon with symbols that portend DOOM. He is all that is left for any still alive to be annihilated in this forbidding place. This critic is very impressed with the striking details of the work -- the dark silhouettes of the broken landscape background against a roiling sky, and the different colors/features of an evil character that rivals the originality of Clive Barker's "Pinhead" and would with certainty enhance the dark angel "Skar," from the early Vampirella comic magazine series. The dark angel here is very well presented as a center figure that practically demands a high rating (all emotions aside) and gets it from this viewer. One's curiosity is still piqued about the title though: if a male witch is a warlock, what then would be the actual name of a male dark angel? This person confesses to having no familiarity with the "Diablo Universe," but a nightmarish part of one that would be formidable to even Dr. Strange (of Marvel Comics) is finely depicted in this stunning creation. "Skar" arrives for sure better than ever here. Well done!

could it be? ... hmmm ... this remembers me of Izual from Diablo 2.
This is outstanding, but the sword could've had something different , its a little to simple for the complexity of this piece.
Either way... I love it :D
