Also: this was an OpenCanvas effort... go go oC!


So it was that the angel Cassiel descended from her heaven, draw by the whispers of God, to seek out the demon Lord Mammon. To and from his hell she came and went as she pleased, some days she would be gone as quickly and quietly as she came, other days she would linger, speaking with him of the world at large, the things she’s had seen and the things he craved. Amused by her presence in the boiling hell and frustrated by how untouchable she was, he took her into his empty halls amid all his collected treasures, into the palace that had been so devoid of sound beyond the clink of his gold. There she sat with him, he’s own dark secret, consorting with the highest of angels in his halls that no other being entered.

But an angel Cassiel was, and like an angel she did leave his hall and only then did Mammon look about his palace and suddenly feel the silence that lingered there without her voice, how the gold had lost it’s beauty after she sat among it. Then did Mammon cast his greedy eyes heavenward and beheld her with others, how immovably her heart would not be swayed by any other being and he wanted her, so he drew her back to his hell, into his gem filled court. Thus it happened when she stood in his presence, he grabbed her about the wings, and with no word nor protest from her, fixed a collar about her neck and declared. “Never shall you leave these walls again, for you are my own, and here you shall sit with me to be the envy of the hells, my most prized possession. I don’t care about love or the heart, but you are the Virgin of the Heavens and now you belong to me, the Queen of Hell.”

And he dressed her in the most gorgeous of his gems, wrapped her in the most precious silks, so everyone would know his great conquest, his claim over the highest of angels. Neatly did she sit at his feet, crooning to him, her head in his lap as he stroked her hair, whispering to him things to fill his palace with sounds, her footfalls, her dresses and wings. And proudly did he overlook her, because of the collar he had placed about her neck, Mammon overlooked that Cassiel’s virtue was patience and she had been sent by God.



Sol'leks must be telling stories again... heh... ^^u.

It was an interesting piece to draw, it has a strange relationship to work off of.

OC is fun for when I just want to paint. Mind you photoshop is still my first love. How long? The hair or the whole thing? All distractions aside the hair was about half an hour, the whole thing about 6 to 7 hours. I had serious artist block with the line art on this so most of the time I spent on this piece was sitting and looking blankly at the screen

Freakin fantastic! The positioning of hairs and such, the possesiveness of Dae's hands on her head and neck, very nicely done. Add's a high does of intensity to the piece. This piece MUST be respected!

Dae can get pretty possessive, but Antha is just as vengeful. What can be better for a pirate captain than a manipulating drow for a semi-partner

Just finished it this weekend, very good. I really liked how the visions all made it look as if Halisstra would become the Yor'thae, but then in the end it's Danifae! *squee* I love twists like that. And I was happy to see that at least ONE of my fav characters stayed alive.

Blind-Leviathan Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2007  Professional Artisan Crafter
Yeah, I like that Halisstra replaced Selvetarm as the new guardian. Books never did say what happened to him, but I'm guessing as pissed as Vharaun was, he won because he's still alive.

:bounce: Purrrrrrty. I especially like her hair, with his fingers twisting up in it. The sharpness of their ears and faces mixed with the softness of the pose is fantastic, like...it's not quite fully natural for them to behave this way, and yet, here they are. Totally love this!

:iconblind-leviathan:
Blind-Leviathan Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2007  Professional Artisan Crafter
Yeah, they have a strange relationship, very love hate. As one of the other characters in the story put it, their relationship takes "a babystep forward and you both run full tilt in opposite direction, screaming like the world is ending. It's depressing. Everyone ELSE in the world gets it - besides you."
Reply
:iconvelrose:
Velrose Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2007
Heh, you can really tell it in the picture. (At least, I think you intended to show it.) it seems their lips are both really tight, and despite the gentle and intimate pose, their hands aren't entirely natural, almost like he his holding her head, making her look at him.
