The title comes from relative obscurity in the Bible. The verse came through my head as I was drawing it [and to save you from straining your eyes to read that text, that is what it says]. Pretty straight forward depiction of an Angel versus a daemon or fallen angel. The drawing was originally 17x21 and executed in pencil and technical pencil. There is much more detail that is displayed here.

I agree with Sairn al'Caar.

The 'Creator of All' has given you great talent. I usually don't preach, but it says in the bible that these talents should be used to serve him, and this is a great example of that. It shows that the 'good' is always fighting to save us from the 'bad'.

Keep up the angel art! I really think this is awesome stuff!

Can you PLEASE do a fallen angel on it's own(preferably in that pose) or accompanied by some sort of demon familier? PLEASE!!

P.S your art is absolutely awesome

Great composition. We're rooting for the angel.

*Go angel! Woot! Woot!*

Well... where do I start...
I have restrained myself of commenting upon almost every work you have uploaded here because time has the bothersome habit to go on with its ticking no matter how important the task to be completed. And so, the comment upon this picture would be that apart from the excellence of movement I perceive in the piece, I specially like the symmetry presented halo-halo and the weapons/symbols they are wielding/wearing.
Just adding more of what I see, the detail upon the armors (specially upon the demon's armor) is just enthralling when combined with that shade/fade effect you applied to the combatants.
Now, Really I just posted my opinion upon this one because it was one of those I liked most, but others to mention would be 'Betrayed', 'Death of a paladin'(mostly for the added fluff, great stuff), 'Death of a pladin: the hand of God made still', 'Delanis Incandenza Tsaru and Tel'Evasa', and... well, I think I made my point clear enough no to need to list all the work in your gallery here.
'tis all great stuff man, there are some who have a gift, and there are some who cultivete their gift, I guess you are of the later.
I'd be real grateful if you could direct me at other places in the net (if there are) where your work might be exposed.

I want to see the 17x21 version - it looks like a fair amount of contrast and detail have been lost in the resized piece.

Are you religious or do you just enjoy drawing characters that have some type of Godly or unGodly background? (I dont mean to be rude, I'm just wondering) Anyways... I wish I could see the original, so that I may see the complete detail behind the drawing, but hey, it still looks great!

I love this picture. I'd like to speak with you about a drawing. But as of yet, I haven't found anyone that can do it do what I have in mind. I can't draw, well not good enough anyways. I can send you the samples of what I do have.
