Azrael by PeteMohrbacher Azrael by PeteMohrbacher
I have watched you since you were born
I wrote your name in my book as you came into this world
I have had an eye watching your entire life
See now, your name fades with time
And now you shall return from whence you came
Delivered from this mortal coil

Let this apple take your body from you
Let my hand guide you to your rightful place
For I am your shepherd

Blessed are the dead
And now you are among them
Delivered form this mortal coil

-Azrael, Angel of Death


A remake of an old piece of mine. Back by popular demand.

Holy. Shit.

This is the most awesome thing I've seen in a while. That was the most awesome thing I've read in a while.

I love everything about this piece. The colours, the background, and of course Azrael itself. (In Islam, angels do not have genders! Nor do they have free will.)

Best thing? You followed actual descriptions of him! 40 wings, 4 arms, the book in which all names are listed. The only things you missed was the 3-or-4 faces and the whole EYES ALL OVER HIS BODY thing, but hell, even finding a pic that follows even ONE of these is hard.

And that badass speech was just even more epic icing to the awesome cake.

I love you. I love this piece. I love angels.

Azrael? Evil? Well, that depends on which religion and interpretation you're looking at, but Azrael is nowhere NEAR evil in Islam, just like how death itself is not an evil thing.

They are not tentacles.They are the tounges of humanity.In his body there are the eyes and tounges of humankind.Seeing what humans see and saying what humans say.He knows and will record everything

ahhh i love how this is so fitting for the mythos behind Azrael, the wings, book, eyes.. and what you write in the description... and is that an eclipsed sun in the back behind his head, or his halo? I almost feel like it being an eclipse would make it better for the fact that it looks like a halo (which im more than positive was a conscious decision if its an eclipse)
