The First Watcher of the North was a favorite among many. Azazel’s beauty and kindness were a thing of legend. He taught mankind to forge swords, handling both his hammer and his blade with equal grace. And though he loved mankind, he feared them as well. This was their land. He had tread upon it without invitation. A stranger. He was many wonderful things, but he was not human. 


Painting Process

Starting early in the process, I'm painting in the light and shadow of the piece. This one came together quickly, so I also apply my digital coloring technique using gradient maps and blend modes.

Azazel, Angel of Sacrifices

Tonight we pour the water from our bowls,
the warmth from our hearths,
and the breath from our flock.

We bring an end to these necessities,
not for their destruction,
but in their honor.

For in their absence,
we can truly see their glory.
