An Angel's Sacrifice by Kromnz An Angel's Sacrifice by Kromnz
this image was inspired by a couple of stories I heard about angels and demons not so long ago.
In one of the stories, an angel appear and saved a person, that angel was wearing medieval body armor and a long sword.
I loved that idea, of a "warrior angel", an angel that not only could influence people on Earth but also act with strength.

Well I thought it could be cool to present a fight between this angel and a demon I heard of in other stories.

And I think, the outcome would be like throwing water to fire, even if you put out the fire, lots of the water becomes steam. So I thought I could use that for the story and for the outcome of this fight.

Whoever wins, will not be as pure evil or good, as they were before this fight, and so there will be no place for them in neither hell or heaven, only as a human being.

Well this is my fiction :) for this pic which is also my entry for Bring Your Vision to Life Contest.

thanks for watching
and have a great day!

I'm tired of stories like this.  Why the hell do people insist angels are corrupted by evil just because they slay evil?  Since when did Holy become so safe, since when did Good suddenly become so inert and so soft and so weak, wtf?

I especially like the details and the mood of the background: gives the main characters depth.

Fantastic work on the background - the lava is beautifully done, especially. The only complaint I have is regarding the fire in the foreground - it doesn't seem to look entirely natural, and it clashes with the backdrop, since it is much harsher.

hey, thanks a lot for your comment and the crit, I really appreciate it.
Well I wanted the fire to be another character that represented evil and could fight the light of the top of the image.
thats why it is separated from the back. It was a composition idea I had.
hehe but I did use smoke from ciggaretts as reference and texture to paint the fire. That was an experiment, I thought it could help the fire look different.

Well done. :) I like the details, like the edges of the angel's feathers and the fraying on the brim of the demon's hat.
