Devil Disposer by Deus-Nocte Devil Disposer by Deus-Nocte
This was a project for my Theology in the Arts class...

It's supposed to be our favorite bible story.

But, I ran out of time. So all I have here is St. Michael the Arch Angel (my version of him, anyway).

In the original, he was stabbing the devil-dragon thing with 7 heads. Which is why he has that pose.

And yes, that's a sword in his hand.

The "story" was from Revelations. The only book in the bible I actually enjoy.

Anyway, I've been working on coloring this all day... and I think it worked out well, even without the dragon to complete it. I'm pretty proud of this one.

Well, enjoy, for what it's worth. :)

Thank you! I love them too, especially Michael. I dunno, I guess I was just always drawn to him because he weilded a sword and was a protector <3

Thanks again!

The wings and the muscle coloring is beautiful did you only use the burn and dodge tools?

Thanks! No, not at all. XD I choose all the colors myself when I shade, I seldom use those. Only when I'm going for a certain effect. :P

Oh really? I'm guessing you change the opacity of the colors so they blend better? You're so damn talented gosh!!! >.<!

But also, do you multiply layers? I tend to go over when I do that, and when two colors overlap the colors mess up. =/

I choose a pretty dark color, use a lower opacity brush, and just do more strokes where I want it darker, then smudge it out. X3

Sometimes, it depends. If I scan a picture, I have to. XD but really, it's just a matter of getting used to them. Sometimes I'll have a layer with the base color then a separate, multiply one for shadows. Or sometimes I just paint on the base layer. *shrugs*

And you can always erase the excess if you put some over a different color. :P It's not too hard to do with a tablet.
