The most horrid battle of all times. The great war in Heaven. In all battles there must be a winner...and a loser. Pitty that poor pathetic soul, forever cast out of the Light. Imagine his unending torment...for he once was the greatest of them all. His name was NOT Lucifer...It was Sammael. (Pencil and PhotoDeluxe)

heh, a creepy pic. But the effects are cool. I know it's intended to be creepy. But i cant help but feel sympathy in this pic

Min...sympathy is close enough, I suppose. I intended to instill pity in the heart of the viewer. He is, after all, one of the most tragic characters in the jeudeo-christian belief system.

This is pretty amazing and that with one color, red... The feeling of war is very high in this work. The pose you drew is magnifico! The wingies are wawie! A big brave for the hands!

wow this is awsome! I love the positioning. The left leg looks a little close to the upper torso, but I guess it's forshortening. This is magnificent. And you said I could draw angels better than you. pah! I cant do wings like that, I know. Good job!

WOUCH! How on earth could I have missed this picture?! *sigh* must be going blind. As always, AMAZING! The torment/agony/anger...very powerful.

For David, I do not like to think that Sammael is truly evil. Have you seen Bedazzled? (Origianl not new) Perhaps the truth is just misunderstood.

I like the pose of this picture. Of course in my opinion his body could be a bit longer, even though it is fine the way it is. The fact that he is appearently reaching for heaven for help while at the same time wanting to destroy it. I think you did a fine job majorly considering the use of only one color.

*yea* Wow, someone who actually knew that it was Sammael and not Lucifer. Beautiful illustration too. I never understood why he was considered evil, he was simply rebelling against a monarchy. Oh well, what's done is done... You have some real talent.

Sammael was actually cheated out of his place in Heaven. He was tricked by Lilith, Adams first wife, and accidently released the dijn. That was his crime. Poor fellow.

Wooooooooow yet again, another great pic. Actually what got me to this page was your pic of Sammael here. I've been trying to find some stuff about him, but all the sites I've been to all say that he was a very VERY bad angel...but looking from your descriptions of the other sammael pics, did it really happen that way? Or was the whole story line just from your awesome imagination?
