Been listening to a couple of professors talk about Dante’s Paradiso and thought I’d design an angel with some armour.
W.I.P.s - still at the blocking out stage. Included a quick doodle exploring general forms.
Some interesting thoughts: I’ve dabbled in theology a bit and always wondered why angels in Hell are designed with so much ferocity and passion, more so than their Heaven counterparts. It seems like it’s hard to wrap around creating ‘free forms’ with angels in Heaven, since they are always stereotyped as ‘humans with dove-like wings’.
More to come.
