Jacob's Angel

This is my entry for the Bifrost Project "Not your Ordinary Angel".  I took as my inspiration the angel that wrestled with Jacob until dawn. So this is a sumo wrestling angel who will wrestle for your soul and drag you back on to the straight and narrow path of virtue. This picture will serve as a dreadful warning to me the next time I feel tempted to do artwork in flourescent marker pens.  On the original he has orange feathers on his wings,a glowingly purple loincloth and a lovely all over golden tan, but of course the computer would not reproduce the colours. Flourescent marker pen and Paint for KDE

You can see young people at night from a long way away by the light emitted by their mobile phones, I've always thought that was risky behaviour.
