Stained Glass - Barattiel by nocturnefox Stained Glass - Barattiel by nocturnefox
~Angel of Support~
[Also found in some versions as Ataphiel]
One of the great angelic princes listed in that famed compendium of angelic lore, the Third Book of Enoch. Barattiel has a specific place in the angelic hierarchy presented in that work, being situated between the angelic princes Tagas and Hamon. When Tagas sees Barattiel, he falls upon his face prostrate and removes his princely crown. Likewise, when Barattiel beholds Hamon, he falls down prostrate and removes his own crown. Barattiel has the special post or power of literally holding the highest heaven-called in this tradition the Arabot-on the tips of his spread fingers.

Well. Back to the little things that make me happy. :heart:

Though if I had more time, I would redo the entire outline of this rather than manipulate the pencil lines to be as black as possible. Still, I really enjoy how this came out, even if I would have liked to do more details in this, especially in those wings.

Art and interpretation of wings are by me.

I really love the gold and purple tones here. :D I do have one question though: is there a reason you've left the hands as undefined/ fingerless? I feel like it seems a little at odds with the other details, like the drapery. I think if there were at least the suggestion of thumbs and maybe simple finger lines, it would fit with the rest of the image more. I hope you don't mind the critique. ^^; I actually like the fact that they're mostly faceless, though. It seems...fitting, somehow.

Thank you XD
Yes I did. Like the face I kind of left them undefined because like the face it's left open to, I guess, interpretation and because I'm a little lazy. ^^;
Not at all Rosy! Any critiques are good. :)

So beautiful <33 Though I doubt Bara would take that kind of compliment...

... The wings are just... incredible...

Hee, doubt it.

I love designing the wings most of all, even if I didn't get to add in all the tiny details on the stained glass version. Still, I love how this came out.

If you don't mind, I may try to doodle these wings too <3

... Even if... may do more of a fallen version, color wise, than the Eden one...

Just because I feel like it...

And partially... Now I wonder what his other half's wings would look like O.o

Not at all. :)

That'd be interesting to see all together really.

Aw... well. By all means have fun with your drawings!
