Angel of Judgement by Morgoth883 Angel of Judgement by Morgoth883
The first angel in my Poster Project~ This guy is anatomically barf, but I do like some parts - the hair and the self illumination thing work quite well.

For the angels I wanted them to all be quite cold looking and cruel.

From the pose and weapon, I'm hazarding a guess at Michael? I just remember him having a spear when he put down Lucifer in a bunch of depictions, so yeah.

Oh yeah? Thats quite interesting because I was indeed aware of that story, but I'd forgotten entirely until you mentioned it there - it mus have seeped in subconsciously XD Astheticly I think spears were just made for angels ;) Even when, like me, the details of the symbolism are a bit foggy and require some wikipediaing, there's something about the spear that makes it fit in this context - judgment and portent~ Its been used in such a way in paintings throughout the ages. A favorite one that I remember, which I think probably refers to the story you mentioned now that I think about it, is of an angel striking down a big snake/dragon thing.

Yeah, that would be a depiction of Michal putting down Lucifer into hell.
