Artwork Description

Well, finally finished this one up. Took me a long time, and lots of sketches, but here it is!

It's my own interpretation of the fallen angel, Abaddon. Here is a short description, in case you aren't familiar with him:

"Abaddon comes to mean "place of destruction", or the realm of the dead, and is associated with Sheol. (Job 26:6; Proverbs 15:11)

Revelation 9:1-11 describes Abaddon as being the king of the bottomless pit locusts that resemble battle horses with crowned human faces, having womens' hair (denoting length), lions' teeth, locusts' wings, and the tail of a scorpion. It appears to have been St. John who first personified the term to stand for an angel."

In my version, he is a monster that fell from the skies, with thousands of eggs inside and outside his body, wich contains the destruction of mankind.

Loving the creativity that went into this one. I've been toying with the idea of an Abaddon painting, but I lack the skill.

Great work.

Art at its best.
