Seraphim Angel - Commission by Petite-Emi Seraphim Angel - Commission by Petite-Emi
In lack of better things to post...

I took on a commission about two cons ago.
Don't go getting your hopes up, because I'm not accepting any more atm. ^^; It was a one-time deal... He threw lots of money in my face and my inner prostitute just said "Yes." ;_; I'm so dirty...

The piece is a bit character-less and maybe even a bit stiff and not remotely close to what I normally draw. I hope you guys don't mind me posting it here. ^^;

I think this is one of you strongest pieces in handling a concept. The biblical definition is challenging to get right and what it describes is an incredibly majestic creature. In the bible there are several descriptions. You pick up in certain places that the seraphim Have more hoove like feet, and eyes all over the place. I love how you folded the wings tho

Incredible! one of the coolest interpretations of a Seraphim. You did good adding that fire-y effect, since the word means "burning ones"

The bible describes them as "using two wings to cover their face, and two wings to cover their feet, while the other two they use to fly"
...So I guess the lower wings could've covered the feet a bit more. and who knows this is pure interpretation, but maybe they would have the center of their body a bit more exposed.  Overall pretty awesome though. Thumbs up!

just perfect!!!!!!!!

Wait! Is this art for sale? This character itself for sale? If so, I deeply interested on buying her!
dabbido Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Sorry to barge in, I'm not the artist, but this is a depiction of a Seraphim, therefore not being a "character" but an illustration of a type of angel. I'm pretty sure since it's spiritual, it wouldn't necessarily be female or male xD.  But I agree! this piece is amazing, I'd love to print this myself. but alas it was a commission, I don't think it's up for sale.

spiritualwarrior288 Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2014
all these opinions on gender and looks now I'm not being conrtoversial maybe idk but who's to say this isn't this artists conception of what a seraphim looks like besides doesn't matter in times of pain or need of comfort why wouldn't an.. angel or seraphim maybe even god show themselves to us as what we are most comfortable with what would be the most heart or soul warming wjat have you ah well this isn't about me I like this drawing if this is drawn by hand would make this beautiful art all the more awesome

Gorgeous piece!

I absolutely love this piece. The fact that you did cover her shows you're skilled enough to do something outside your usual repertoire. The sheer amount of detail you put into this piece is applaudable. And this is the most accurate depiction of a seraphim I've seen yet. 6 wings, 2 to hide her face, 2 to hide her feet, and 2 to fly. Very majestic.
HaV0cK Featured By Owner May 5, 2012
wow...this is absolutely in love with this pic...nice job! :D
Aellostriker2 Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
what a glorious seraphim,

`hope it`s not a 'morning star'.
Sebow Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2012
Isaiah 6:1–3 : “… I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and His train filled the Hekhal (sanctuary). Above Him stood the Seraphim; each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.”

Your version has the wings covering the body and not the eyes and the feet, but other than that I really like this picture, I think it really brings out the powerfulness and strength of the Seraph. :)

Good Job. :D
SilberCorgi Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2012
I guess that would look so epic with open wings... O.o
anyway great drawing... :)
darkn2ght Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2012
i love the wing span, and admire that nice halo glow on the angel's head. especially like the way the hair is waving in upward spiral. such fluid movement!:heart:
MicKnight87 Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2011

Petite-Emi Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2011  Professional Digital Artist

This is amazing!! She is sooo beautiful!
skratch234 Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2011
How can you call this "stiff"? D: The hair flows well, the feathers look like they've settled naturally and the lighting effect is brilliant. This, my good artist, is amazing.
Shadokiller101 Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm thinking of getting a seraphim tatoo'd on the back of my arm
ziginz Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
Money makes things happen, for better or worse. I like it, though it is a bit stiff as you said. Even so the wings are well made. More wings could be very good, just mixed with your normal style. So Wings+Rough+Adorable= Stuff...
newmanaccount Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
That looks totally epic! Great work on the feathers!
Tygepc Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2011
Love the texture on the wings. And the star field, just adds to the epicness of this piece.

I won't bother being first. But this peaks my interest! Very nice.. Very nice indeed!
Morino5 Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2011
first might i say this is a very nice peice butthis seraphim seems to not be covering the only parts it's supposed to be covering. feet and face.
TheWeazle Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2011
Um... any possibility at all that this one might ever make it to printed form at any of your con booths? My girlfriend loves stuff like this and I'd really like to get one for her :)

Sure, it might be a bit stiff but religous motifs can kinda get away with that a little bit and it's still the most awesome seraphim I've ever seen, so...
Petite-Emi Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
It's supposed to go into print, so yes, there will be a chance for you to buy one. :3
TheWeazle Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2011
Aaawesooome! :)
