Uriel is the wrath of God, Gabriel is strong man of God... Nice picture, just incorrect translation, sorry ^^

Have a good one

Hmm, I don't see why an Angel would have a sigil like the jinn. Angels only do what god ask, they can't really be summoned.

But for entertainment purposes then that's cool.

Are the symbols made up? Or do they actually mean or come from some where?

Sorry for the delay.... I forget to check my DA all the time.
The seal is actually researched, not made-up. I'm not sure of the meaning of the particular symbols, but most of the seals come from either the Qabbalah or the Grimoire of Armadel. Some of the later angels (such as Jophiel and Azrael) I couldn't find ACTUAL seals on, but was able to create them using some symbols related to the respective archangel.
Thanks for your interest!

I believe you may be able to find them in books such as Dictionnaire Infernal (Unsure of spelling) and the Lesser key of Solomon

Thanks so much! According to my research, Metatron was primarily the voice of God, as the one who spoke through the burning bush to Moses and led the Hebrews out of Egypt as the pillar of smoke/fire. Gabriel is actually primarily a messenger, being the one who told Mary of her impending pregnancy. It also said that Gabriel is supposed to be the one who loves man or is closer to man than any of the other archangels, therefore when it is time to teach lessons, it's upon his shoulders that this burden falls (since he is the one who will never take it too far). It's assumed, therefore, that he was the primary hand behind the destruction of Sodom & Gomorrah, and that he was probably the passover angel as well (killing all the first borns of Egypt in the final plague that released the Hebrews). In the book I'm working on, I have him as a somewhat haunted individual, for he loves and admires man, yet wields such destructive force. He definitely gets his chance to be appreciated and thanked for all he does, though!

This is amazing and well-done! The proportions are very nice.

I thought Gabriel was the voice of God though...?

Thank you kindly! Anatomy and proportion are my strong suits... unfortunately backgrounds are my weakness!

backgrounds just get distracting
just look at the hellboy comics
they show one main background when they're introduced to a new setting and then its just flat background with solid or gradient color
i view backgrounds as a tool to show setting that you only need to really show once or twice unless use it as a tool or if its really important to the story line then include it but not full detail
if its not important to the story then screw it
