Angel of Death by Morgoth883 Angel of Death by Morgoth883
The second of two angels for my Poster Project :) Having now drawn them both I feel it would have been more interesting if I had gone down the route of the scary, multiheaded, eyeball encrusted angels. It would have fitted into the theme I was going for with these two angels at least - that of cold and uncaring beings. That said, I rather like that hour glass she’s holding.

If I remember correctly, the description for Azrael, Angel of Silent Death (as in natural death, I believe) was something like, four arms, two holding quills and one holding the book of life and the last to turn the pages, the quilled arms constantly in motion, one writing names into the book as people are born and the other crossing them out as they die, at least two wings, covered in eyes which open as people are born and close as they die. If he was a seraphim, he'd have two more wings, two to cover his face, and two more to cover his feet, the last two used to fly. Don't remember how big he was supposed to be, but most angels were so huge that their normal heights were measured in how many years it would take a man to walk their length.

That's exactly the kind of thing I should have been drawing XD I love the sheer monsterousness of these beings who are supposed to be benevolent. They're easily as weird as anything from the more ancient religions.

There's a reason they would say, "Do not fear," when appearing
