This image in no way reflects "The Story From Hell
" story canon. Okay? So don't get any ideas!
Now that thats out of the way... I'm sorry.. I'm weak.. I'm very weak. It was going to happen eventually. I have a comic concept full of androgynous bishonen for crying out loud.
I decided to make three shonen ai/yaoi-ish illustrations of me Angel boys to sell at Anime Weekend Atlanta (the others are still being worked on and this came out nice and the cyst in my right arm hurts T_T ). Yes these are rather indulgent and pointless
but I figure its easier to part with something that isn't relevant to the series
and of course is more than a tad fanservicey.
However in the case of this one, which came out much darker and made Azrael and Lucifer look much more like angst-muffins than I intended, it still reflects their personalities, and their odd friendship. Especially Lucifer's rather possessive
look. (And just for you Azrael fans I made sure he looked uncomfortable about this). Azrael was, of course, the first to follow Lucifer in the rebellion against God, and is still loyal to him even though he really gets sick of Lucifer sometimes. Not to mention he's pretty much Lucifer's only true friend.
I drew the wings a little differently here (and in the other ones) too, because I intended them to be small like I draw them in gag comics sometimes. I think I like it.
And don't worry even though I'm selling the original later this month (hopefully) at AWA there will be prints.
