If you’re into this, Peter Mohrbacher did a pretty interesting (although not drawn directly from any text) series of angels as well
(His personal website doesn’t have the descriptions with them, so the link goes to dA.)
I just love the rings and the eyes so much.
No that’s how angels above the basic level actually LOOK, there is a reason why in the bible angels approaching people usually say “Do not be afraid” or “have no fear”- they’re basically saying “OKAY NOW DON’T FREAK OUT CAUSE I LOOK KIND OF…YEAH”.
It kind of goes hand in hand with the mentality of “Okay I can’t speak to him from my true form because reasons…Oh I know I’ll SET A BUSH ON CELESTIAL FIRE! That’ll be cool at least.”
"Au revoir, Shosanna!"
I mean, it’s like… something’s just got your name on it, like a, like a bullet or a nail in the road…
Shit. Sorry. I drift…
