Stained Glass - Samkiel by nocturnefox Stained Glass - Samkiel by nocturnefox
Samkiel
~Angel of Destruction And Purifier of souls from sheol~
An angel of destruction in 3 Enoch. He is in charge of the souls of the intermediate-- that is, those whose good and bad parts are just about balance, so that they count as neither righteous nor wicked. Samkiel, whose name comes from the word for 'support', takes them down to hell where their souls are purified by fire.

Last one!

After Baraqiel, I really felt I needed to go back to drawing details. =I

And for Samkiel, well. Random in colors for an angel of destruction and for the fact she's pretty girly. But I doubt she's always destructive in the beginning so I left it as that. Also, originally I had the mind to give her more of a monochromatic gray scale for her colors... but without colors like everyone else, I thought it'd be a bit boring. THUS, she has pale pink added.

I am pleased.

Samkiel herself and/or me.
Art and interpretation of wings are by me.

I am really enjoying this stain glass series! It's so simple yet very elegant! The thick lines help the colours stand out and nothing beats that effect to make it look like glass. I really like all of the images, but this one is my favourite.

Thank you :)
Glad to hear. And interesting enough your favorite ended up being one of the most destructive angel in this series lol.
If you are curious about anything, don't be afraid to ask.

Haha, I guess I know how to pick em.
Why did you do all those angels? What exactly are they from? And was there any reference or inspiration for them?

Maybe XD
I really do enjoy them mainly. All these angels are legit angels that I've looked up in one of my angel dictionaries. A few of these are mine though, while the others are my girlfriend's characters. From there we created characters and expanded from there. While there are only a handful here, I do have many more angelic and fallen angelic characters as well as demonic to go long with multiple ideas that I've had. ID

I'd really like to see more of them, and find out more. I'm a big fan of angels and demons myself, and with your wing designs, this sort of character is perfect for you, isn't it? ;P

Oh goodness lol XD That may take a while to explain lol (I have quite a lot of different angels and fallen angel characters, some Incubi, and others) especially since I have many different characters in this area too-- gay, straight, lesbians, guys, girls, non-gendered, lovable, hated, etc. You name is hee
Yes it is ;p
And I haven't posted all the wing designs I've designed too lol

I would honestly love to hear about ALL of them, but that's up to you if you want to take all that time :D
You really should post those designs, they're really inspiring. Heck you could even start taking commissions to design them for other people if you wanted.

I don't see a reason why not ID Maybe under some IM I can overload you with rambles lol
Maybe lol
Admittedly I haven't had too much of a motivation to follow through with the commissions I said I'd do lately, but at the same time, barely anyone wanted the point commissions so I'm like :shrug:
