Tuesday Tips - Hair
There’s no hard rules to draw hair (or anything for that matter), but the one thing that I try to keep in my mind is that there’s AIR in hair. I can draw it as a shape because there’s hundreds of thousands of them, but I’m also considering the space between them. For example, the volume of dry hair and wet hair will be dramatically different. Also, the way it behaves will differ greatly from person to person. I mostly think about the “weight” of the hair. Longer hair will means that the mass of hair will be heavier and react accordingly.

What angels are apparently supposed to look like according to
They had 6 wings, covered with eyes on the wings. And had two eyes on their face, but used 2 wings to cover their face at all times because if a mortal ever saw their face they would die.
The bible mentions multiple faces, being covered in eyeballs, constant singing, lion heads etc.
Besides being described as beasts and monsters, they’re practically brainless drones. Heavenly angels are only one step removed from demons. The only difference is demons fell from heaven because they chose to follow Lucifer, who was an angel (angel of music and one of god’s favorites). So they are these eyeball covered animal mashed up monsters who were only created to worship for eternity (part of humanities creation was so that something would choose to love god, not just worship him because they were created to).
Angels fall into a lot of new age and conspiracy beliefs.We were taught that the supernatural realms went in the order of Heaven, Hell, then Earth. So when the angels fell from heaven with Lucifer, some fell through hell and landed on Earth. We were taught they intermarried with early humans and created giants and taught witch craft to women.
Technically, angels have made their only moral choice, and so experience morality only in theory.
Some angel characters are based on the non-humanoid or vaguely humanoid “canon” angels, which can be anything from a ball of wings covered in eyes to a huge, living wheel to animals on fire.
They’re abominations, they’re alien, they’re beyond us. They’re creatures that biology as we know it does not apply to. Often they do not love mankind, they love God and God alone.
Maybe angels taking on human form but describing just what they look like when they’re not wearing their skin.
Angels are such creepy and interesting.
The study of angelology is EVEN MORE interesting with a literal and scientific approach to understand what ancients have said regarding angelic deities. It’s a beautiful study
There is a damned good reason why the first thing out of an angel’s mouth whenever it appears to a mortal person in the Bible is “DO NOT FEAR”, and it’s because angels are fucking terrifying.
Different orders looked different. Seraphim, in Judaic canon, were second to God Himself, had six wings covered in eyes, and four wings covered their bodies which were so alien and glorious, they would set a mortal soul ablaze should one gaze upon it. Others, like Cherubim, were concentric circles covered in eyes and connected at the wing-tips. There are Thrones, Principalities and Dominions, too. Angels and Archangels are actually the lowest orders, however Christian canon has the Archangels as top dogs.
