         Okay. Last year, we had another supposedly required contest to enter: The Manila Archdiocese Commision on Church History (MACC) Painting Competition for 2014. theme was anything religious & our prof gave us the assignment late Nov with the last entry date being Dec. 18.
As usual, I bit off more than I could chew, opting for the Angelic Hierarchy with an Art Nouveau-inspired look (I love Alphonse Mucha so freakin much!), hoping to stand out among the Christs & saints & street children praying or whatever. (Granted though, the winners are hella talented but super realistic as mine are cartoony.) This time, I DIDN'T get my hopes up-- I just wanted to get exhibited & see the others.
          But like I said, I bit off more than I could chew. I couldn't make it in time for the submission.

NGUNIT/ SUBALIT/ DATAPWAT (BUT): ...
         I got a 100% anyway.Blower fella (Party) :chairdance: Rockstar Fella ( Music Band ) CELEBRATE Fella BreakDance (Music Band) Celebrate 
         And that's not counting the ADDITIONAL GRADE that goes with submitting the list of approved topics & notes/concept art/sketches/studies! My prof knew how hard I worked the past months [(including the Xmas break) -- he great that way :3), all the late nights & sacrifice then gave me that. Weew!

Without further ado, my depiction of The (Christian) Angelic Hierarchy:  

just like heaven just like heaven just like heaven just like heaven just like heaven 
Angelic Hierarchy by Riazana

OVERVIEW NOTES:
-Acrylic on 2' x 3' canvas

-Totally finished on: 1/13/15

-I had to use a SHIT TON OF REFERENCES!!! This was my main source en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christia… but had to look up further refs on the net, DA included. SEARCH EM! There are some pretty good ones here from your fellow DA members-- show some community love & support, y'all :) Exeptional example by justdejan.deviantart.com/: Hierarchy of Angels and Demons by justdejan  Also: wings. Demon and Angel Wings Tutorial by AvrilDC

-downside: the piece has plenty of flaws, especially the last sphere. Several things from concept notes had to be omitted & work was rushed. I was going to use metallic paints on details but was strapped for time.  

-no particular angel (of the 72 or otherwise) is depicted here, just embodiments of the ranks as I imagined them 

-details for me are either super fun to do or a total pain in the arse or both! But designing the costumes, tattooes, piercings, halos, etc. especially for the 2nd sphere was fun because I haven't designed any outfit in a coon's age-- not even a Polyvore ensemble. (My account: battleballgown.polyvore.com/) Plus, experimenting with skin color & facial structure/ features was pretty good, too.

-SPHERES NOTES/ CONCEPT: each sphere has a look & main duty:
1st Sphere: -guardians of God's throne
                -look: Celestial beings that look creature or monster-like
2nd Sphere: -governors of heavenly bodies & the cosmos
                 -look: inspiration involved looking at games (generally RPG-esque) & anime & yes, DA. (ex. by  zombiesmile.deviantart.com/ Angelic Hierarchy by Zombiesmile)
3rd Sphere:  -most interactive with humans, guardians of earthly matters
                  -look: most human looking-- as in, human disguises

So here y'all go (I'll put the index for each individual angel here):

1st Sphere:

Seraphim:Seraph by Riazana
Cherubim:Cherub by Riazana
Ophanim:Ophan by Riazana

2nd Sphere:
Dominions:Dominion by Riazana
Strongholds:Stronghold by Riazana
Authorities:Authority by Riazana

3rd Sphere:
Principalities:Prinicipalities by Riazana
Archangels:Archangel by Riazana
Rulers:Angel by Riazana

That's it! Enjoy! cat planet cat planet
