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 like your idea and specially how you made this idea.

It's not true that fallen or dark things are too powerfull, I believe that those who protect innocents and fight for freedom and guarding Heaven are more powerfull than those who only destroy.
