Michael vs. Lucifer – Making Of

Michael vs. Lucifer, is a two part illustration of a scene from my original story.

The universe that my Lucifer and Michael are part of, is ruled by five elemental deities; Earth (Bruntos Tæmblor), Fire (Leodan Whiteflæm), Shadow (Rahmvar Darkhæl), Water (Nuhria Mælstrom), and Air (Deyhuan Wholegæl).

The Angel race, also known as Lan’Huan, that Michael and Lucifer are part of, was created by the god of Air, Deyhuan. “Lan’Huan” stands for, Children of Deyhuan.

Michael is the Viceroy of the sky-continent, Naraan (Heaven), whilst Lucifer is the Archon of the deepground realm called Basvaria (Hell).

These two illustrations originally started out as watercolours, but I changed my mind half way through, for I felt the watercolour either required less detail than I originally wanted, or the effect was lost when zooming out.

This is as far as I got with the watercolours before deciding that it will not work for these illustrations:

“St. Michael the Archangel” Statue – Review

I have recently purchased a statue of the Archangel Michael by Design Toscano from Amazon UK. The statue is sculpted in bonded natural marble, weighs about 1kgs and stands at 15 inches from base to wing-tip.

To call this statue beautiful would be an injustice. The level of detail, fantastic anatomy, smooth finish, and the general aesthetic give this piece a truly artistic, almost museum quality look.

There are three things in life I am obsessed over: Dragons, Elves and Angels. Major fantasy geek over here. Thus, I’ve seen a fair share of little statues and figurines of the Archangel Michael and I’m always on the lookout for new ones to add to my collection. But this piece… This piece tops them all!

Just look at those angelic features with the beautifully sculpted locks, somehow managing to be gentle and strong at the same time:

ArtRage paintings

ArtRage is a really fantastic little app for Android, that I use almost constantly. It’s an app geared at people with a Samsung Note Tab or Phone, because it takes great advantage of the pressure sensitivity of the Note pen, but I believe it can be used with fingers as well, easily enough, though I myself have never tried it that way.

Until now, ArtRage is the best app I could find for painting, because it enables the user to use a variety of tools that mimic traditional mediums, like pencils, felt tip pens, watercolours and oil paint —my favourite by far.

When I am waiting between lectures at uni it’s the perfect tool for me to pass the time.

Here are the latest examples of paintings I did using ArtRage on my Galaxy NotePro tablet:
