-Zachriel- by PeteMohrbacher -Zachriel- by PeteMohrbacher
For he who holds the memory of man
For he whose arcane business is long forgotten
Why should he bless you?
If you cannot even remember his face
He who holds the past upon his shoulders
And the future in his hands
Hail Zachriel, Angel of Memory

EDIT: My mom wanted a big print of this, so I went back in a made some corrections. More solid halo is the biggest one. Thanks to =look for the clockwork patterns on it. Other then that, it was just some lighting updates and cleaning a few things up.

I was initially drawn to your work because your flair for costuming resembles revolverwinds who I suspect is one of the greats as a unique clothier of fantasy characters. Recently his work has evolved into a type of collage which takes "the costume" to a new level where the costume becomes the being. I enjoyed your collection very much and also thank you for the interesting links.

The designs all look so cool. The background colors go with him quite nicely and the shine just makes it look dramatic. Hail dramatics! X3
Le-Doude Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2007
Your series about angels is definitely impressive.
Myths around Enoch's book are quite fascinating and inspiring i'd say :)

I'm not sure what you were thinking exactly when making this, but I can explain it to myself because of my beliefs and understanding of religion. Other than that idea, I could otherwise see it as a less-meaningful fiction character. It was the only thing to catch my eye today while browsing, so thanks :D.

Nice!! i like how it kinda techno, my opinion. the poem went with the pic just great. and the color scheme is just perfect. i think the wings could be more sold thou.

I'd have to say out off all your angel designs, I get the most EVA vibe from this one; maybe it's all the techy stuff I see in it. Interesting correlation between memory of the mind and electronic memory, this one looks like the protector of the Jedi archives...

There's going to be a live-action eva movie; has anyone contacted you about it yet?

evilarcana Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2006   Digital Artist

Although this is Zachriel angel of memory it fits perfectly the vision I had of the faceless Annunaki, gods of judgement from my D&D pantheon. I REALLY like this picture along with the rest of the series...very nice.
z3r0t0lerance Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2006

Ryouichi Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2005
Hmm. I really like the colouring style you used. I really like the description given for the image as well.

Would you happen to know any tutorials, etc. that I may be able to find about that kind of colouring?
PeteMohrbacher Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2005  Professional Digital Artist
*loish has a tutorial that I used to help further my style.
