Basandra, Battle Seraph by TereseNielsen Basandra, Battle Seraph by TereseNielsen
I love painting angels, so I was stoked when I saw this assignment come into my email. She's one of my recent favorites.

Sometimes when I'm working on a job there are only a few parts of the painting that I really "enjoy" working on. However, all of the aspects of this piece felt fun, from the clouds to the borders to the costuming.

It's painted traditionally, because I'm a dinosaur like that. Maybe if I spilled some turpentine on my Wacom I could make the transition. Anyway, I start with an acrylic underpainting, and then add oil and colored pencil on top. The gold areas were done with gold ink mixed with a little linseed oil.

If you'd like to read more about this piece there's a blog post available showing the actual card, original art description, sketch etc. [link]

Also, there are two different limited edition print sizes available. [link]

This is amazing!  When I visited Greece, all the churches had frescoes of seraphs and I tried to envision them as the warriors that they were supposedly are.  (Not little cherub heads with six wings.)  This is much better!

I had a dream once of being a fallen Guardian Angel. I had no memory of this until i was called upon to rise again. In the dream I was a warrior angel ...... and here I find you have painted it! Bizarre and wonderful all in one.
