So today’s angel archetype is the cherubim. They fall second in the first sphere of angels (first sphere angels serve as the heavenly counselors). They are described as follows:
Cherubim have four faces: one of each a man, an ox, a lion, and an eagle. They have four conjoined wings covered with eyes, a lion’s body figure, and they have ox’s feet. Cherubim guard the way to the tree of life in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:24) and the throne of God (Ezekiel 28:14-16).
As a general note, angels of the first sphere are the oddities of heaven, containing the “burning”, six-winged seraphs, the animalistic cherubim, and wheeled ophanim (or thrones). Each is more strangely described than the last.
[[Apologies to SPN fans for the awful timing. True forms have never been less relevant. :[ Except for a certain seraph who is sure to get what’s coming.]]

Stay classy Tumblr.
I’m drowning in a wave of sorrow
Too awesome not to share.
Some of the most iconic photos of our history. Seeing them in color makes it even more surreal.
HOW THE FUCK IS THIS DONE—
did i already reblog this
who cares it’s awesome
The middle three I think are especially poignant, because I think when images of destruction, violence, and death are seen in black and white, there’s a sort of unreality about them…a tendency to see them as history, the stuff of textbooks, and not as real things that really happened.
Violence. War. And people who keeps on going despite it.
Such is our history.
So I’ve decided that any excuse to make me draw people is acceptable. This is just silly (how far I let myself get away from drawing humans).
Anyway, here’s a modern day Khamuel in his angel-standard suit and tie. No idea where I was going with the background. It just sorta became a dawn sky.
Can’t wait till I have enough of a feel for his design to do random fun stuff with him.
So here’s where I am tonight with Khamuel. Since he’s supposed to appear usually in shining armor I spent most of my time making something at least a touch believable. Also made his face a little less trickster and a bit more quiet determination.
My theory is that his vessel was an actually pious knight during the crusades who modified it to fit his wings. I mean, it was still a time when manifesting some wingage was a legitimate strategy. After that, he kept it as a useful memento.
Tomorrow, I’ll be designing his new wardrobe so he’ll match the actual show angels. Hooray suits!
Nihonbashi Koukashita R-Keikaku, ladies and gentlemen
supposedly created with the randomness of Tumblr as the inspiration ^u^
Because it’s a happy magical thing, that’s why!
So. Too much Supernatural has finally effected my arting. Decided to draw some of the different spheres of angels as their true forms are described.
I started here with the angel of Tuesday, Khamuel, a seraphim. Still need to add his armor and such, but it’s a start.
Someone over the weekend asked me how to color hair. After trying to describe it without having my tablet handy, I figured I’d make this to give them a better idea. No color theory on what colors to make shadows and lights though because there are definitely better people and tutorials out there for that, but hopefully it’s still useful to someone.
