Israfil by 000Fesbra000 Israfil by 000Fesbra000
a quick concept for the angel of death. Most of you would think that angels actually look handsome and gentle. But I really think that as inter-planar beings they choose whatever shape it is to our liking in order to get our support. Which makes me wonder about the honesty of most demons, that appear at first as a terrifying monster in order to intimidate the summoner and be left alone. But once they feel comfy they will show their "angelical" form. Some of them, the most feared ones, like Beleth, who's King in Hell and amazingly violent and difficult to control once summoned. But when in control, the pale horse and the giant ugly demon will show his true colors and shape shift if demanded into a cute little girl with golden hair and white wings. Her only power? To control one of the most powerful energies in the universe. Love.
But the real question: are white wings and a fairy face and even... human shape, the true form of an angel?

our body design is just the result of addaptations to better survive in this material realm. The aspect of beings we know (like birds or goats) is the only reference we have when we try to understand, what we can not.
I can not understand why we think in angels as lovely and cutty beings, while abrahamic angels have wings, swords, and execute Yaweh destructions.

Is this from the Islamic concept or the Christian one?
Wasn't Israfil the angel who will blow the horn on judgement day?
I thought Israil was the angel of death.

Nice, your comment made me think about the fist time I evoked a demon, the feeling of terror was overwhelming, but after I kept summoning the same entity it would present fast and almost with a feeling of servitude, which was weird to me since it was a goetic King after all. The last time I evoked him, he came with many other entities, all of them looked alike this image, human shapes of shadows in the darkness of my room, after they left, it seemed as if the light had came back to the room, even tho it was late at night and the light was so scarce. 

nice work

If this were in a book, it would wave its hand "as though swatting a fly" and then some disproportionately large act of power would commence. This is Old Testament material. Five stars.

What is that symbol near its waistline area?

Angels would never show their real colors I think. I have a feeling that if angels and stuff would exist they would be just as selfish as anybody else and use humans for their benefit. I think they would be celestial enbodyments in maybe even a gas form. But being such powerful beings we would see them as who ever we want to see. (example: like your dead mother or long lost girlfriend) but someone else sees something else. Like I see george clooney and you see tom cruise but they are the same angel.

A very interesting idea! In the Christian NIV Bible I remember reading that when angels appeared to people, said people were usually terrified. There are other accounts of them in Revelations, in which some were said to have some rather bizarre forms. It's very interesting to speculate what they might have looked like...
although to be honest i'm probably the type of person to scream if a golden retriever magically appeared in my room

A really nice piece! :D
