The Destroying Angel by LyntonLevengood The Destroying Angel by LyntonLevengood
Hello, This is an image I have been working on over the last 2 weeks. I was inspired by some amazing warhammer art that I saw. The epic warriors, so full of detail look great. Though there are many such images, they often depict demonic fallen or dark knights. I wanted to do exactly the opposite:)

The Hebrew Bible includes the Destroyer (ha-mashḥit) who at the Passover in Exodus killed the firstborn of Egypt. Later a "destroying angel" (mal'ak ha-mashḥit) kills many of the inhabitants of Jerusalem in 2 Samuel 24:15. While in the parallel passage in I Chronicles 21:15 the same "angel of the Lord" is seen by David to stand "between the earth and the heaven, with a drawn sword in his hand stretched out against Jerusalem." Later the angel of the Lord kills 185,000 men of Sennacherib's Assyrian army, thereby saving Hezekiah's Jerusalem in II Kings 19:35.

Hope you like:)

P.S. Thanks to my friends for casting their discerning eyes on this image and helping me to take it further ;)

I consider angels to be a lot creepier than demons. You have talismans, prayers, songs and rituals to keep demons at bay but angels, you can't protect yourself from them, and demons are little pansies compared to angels in every category. They just keep coming until ones sins are burned away and what is sown is reaped.
