St. Michael Slays The Evil One by natamon St. Michael Slays The Evil One by natamon
My 2nd St. Michael, I had this one in my head over a few years, with a lose, rough drawing on a piece of paper to remind me(amidst the stack of many-natch).
Finally, I crammed the time to work on it into my very busy workweek, and finished it.
Satan was initially going to be oxblood color, but I settled on a deep red, so you can see more of his shape and wounds. Plus, I wanted a balance of colors between him and St. Michael.
I really enjoy showing him suffering, and having his skull in 'mid-rupture'.
Yay St. Michael-go get him! ^_^

Thanks ...

I appreciate the comments about my avatar. In reality, I have nothing to do with promoting the whole "Big Brother" idea / INGSOC / etc. that George Orwell so eloquently imagined in his classic novel "Nineteen Eighty-four".

I just like the look of it and had been on sort of a "1984" interest streak (so to speak) here a short while ago when I signed on to Deviant Art. :) So I just sort of let it carry over. Additionally, I am reading a book right now on the practices / erroneous beliefs of the Jehovah's Witnesses entitled "The Orwellian World of the Jehovah's Witnesses" which is written by two former J.W.'s as sort of a tell-all book.

Authors weave in the theme / premise of the novel 1984 with the J.W. cult's ideas and how much the people who are at the top of the ladder within the J.W. establishment use the same techniques the Mr. Orwell spoke of. A very good read.

I am reading it because, as a Traditional Roman Catholic, I have engaged in some highly spirited debates with J.W.'s and have always been puzzled at how "robotic" or "uneducated" or "rigid" they are. Just amazed at it.

OK, sorry to have gone off on a tangent here. Thanks again for putting the St. Michael image up for others to peruse here on D.A. Wish there was some way that we could eliminate the really, really, REALLY evil images that some users here on D.A. put up to mock Jesus. Really saddens me.

"Quis Ut Deus!" and "Ad Jesum per Mariam"

Take care,

Brent / INGSOC

Hey thanks!
Since I am a fantasy artist at heart, I knew I could incorporate that feel into icons, which are now more close to my heart than ever. They are my favorite thing to capture as art, because I crave to bring them to people through the hands of a fantasy artist, if that makes sense. I want people to appreciate them and discover their lives as I have begun to. And like all Saints, they show us how to know, understand and love God more-which is another reason they are so helpful to people-even way after their death.
I want them to appear as the people they are, and were, but with that aspect of their lives as Christians shining through somehow. You know, something supernatural there as well.
Oops, I could talk about this subject all day! Teehee!
Thanks for the kind words my friend. :)

This is one of the best renditions I have seen of Michael and Lucifer's battle. I like the style.

Awesome! I drew a St. Michael picture too! It sort of looks like yours but St. Michael's foot his on Lucifer's neck and Michael is thrusting a sword down his throat! God Bless and VIVA CRISTO REY!
