Michael by Caelicorn Michael by Caelicorn
I am working on a fantastical series of angels at the moment in my own time that aren't meant to be religious, but almost comic style pieces. The armour and characters in general are over the top and very fun to design. For this one, I wanted to go with wing shapes and put six to eight on them since I think traditionally, archangels have many wings. Initially I was going to go for a rooster armour design and wing style, but it got a bit toooo colourful for my colourful liking. This is also a tribute to my brother, Michael, who has always been my angel and there for me (and also posed as the reference for this person!)

I had to laugh a bit when I saw this amazing piece of work. I really love it, because I was thinking about Arcangel Michael right in that moment before I saw this image.
Oh my, I love those wings and the position of how the character is standing. It gives you straight away the feeling of intimidation when you try to look at the face of the angel.
And the armor of the Angel looks just as heroic as he really is. (I must admit that he really looks good-looking and that I always had the weakness of admiring warriors [especially the heavenly friendly and good lookin ones] )
All in all I love this awesome piece of work and I hope and wish, that you will make some more of these kind of works!
Keep up the awesome work and lose never faith of love, peace and the good will in everyone!!!

Your Art is awesome.I love it.I love this piece.Also I keep looking for art of Nephillim.They were like giant angels that came to earth and took the daughters of men . There are many myths about it you can look it up. I imagine an exceptionally larger angel with magnificent wings and looks like the Chris Cornell from soundgarden. A variety of Nephillim angels would be awesome. Let me know if you ever do so I can add it to my pinterest Future Worlds Imagination Storyboard. I hope you check it out it will inspire you.

Are you are that this piece is being used by Anna Ershkigal as book cover?…

I am, she licensed the use of it for that cover :-) thank you for asking though. Without people like you we would not discover if our work is being used without our consent!
