As salty waves march along the mortal shores, the remnants of our lives touch the realm of angels. Azrael takes us back into his house, scooping up the silt of our lives and carrying them to safety. No matter how long we leave him, he'll patiently wait for our return.
Look out to the horizon far enough and you'll see. You are on your way home.

Yeah mostly focus on one or two at a time. Art has endless possibilities and wonder you can imagine.
It's obvious that Azrael is your preferred angel, since this is the fourth time we get to see him, but somehow you always manage to make him look better every time. Love the horns/aureola, and especially the mythological detail: angels don't touch the ground.
Hats off to you.
