The Effective Judge

I did not want to portray Satan in dragon form because the latter has adopted a more sympathetic symbolism these days. I myself adore the design of these imaginative creatures and have so since I was a kid. To illustrate my hateful enemy as such seemed too traditional.

But as I was drawing Jesus, I was reminded: (Isaiah 53:2 ESV)

"For he grew up before him like a young plant, and like a root out of dry ground; he had no form or majesty that we should look at him, and no beauty that we should desire him."

That made Christ all the more awesome to me.;)

  • Thank you, Daniel.;)
  • I appreciate you, Brien, thank you. ;)
  • Funny that you mention it, Mia, because I only just recently began--again--in Revelations a few weeks ago. Yes, certainly some surreal metaphorical representations there. 8O

    Personally I have been more intrigued by the description in 2 Corinthians as disguising himself as an angel of light... slightly more illusive than a giant red goat dude in cultural comedy. XD
  • This is amazing work, great movement and action

  • Love the shapes entwined in combat, the heal of Christ on the serpents tail is definitely a nice touch. And yeah, Christ is most definitely awesome.

  • You should look into Revelation for some symbollic inspiration for the enemy. Not saying he deserves to be portrayed well, but it might add more specifics to more than just "dragon". He has many heads and horns with symbolic stuff in the numbers.

    Awesome work though! I love the the composition and shape. As well as how the serpent is being stepped on /and/ stabbed. So glad that our Lord is the winner!
