Great piece, would you mind if I got this as a tattoo?

Wes - What a great piece of art!  I am a pastor of a small church in Chesapeake, Va. and I would like to use this image for the sermon. Can I do that, or do I need to pay a royalty fee? Please let me know.

Hi, I have pinned your work here:… (Hope that would be okay!) It turned out to be one of my first pins on pinterest :)

Hey I really dig this image.  A College Christian Brotherhood I'm organizing at Shepherd University is looking for cool images of Michael and the angels to use in ads and maybe t-shirts. Would you mind if we use your image in any of this?  If not I understand.

I would like to know if I could get your permission to use you this picture as a decal on my truck hood. I would like to make reference on the windshield visor to Revelations 12:7-12. My name is Michael, and this is the best rendition of this scene I have ever seen. My compliments to you Mr. Talbot!

hi i'm making a trading card game and i was wondering if i could use this drawing for a card i will give credit where it is deserved and plus its a easy way to spread your art plus you can still use them for your project the card game is called Paragon Galaxy the concept is a galaxy built where all these worlds exist for the perfect galaxy . The galaxy will grow and grow until this perfection is formed

Very nice!!!

Holy hell (pun intended), this is magnificent. I love anything that deals with angels, and this is incredible. The wings, the details, the flying poses, and SWORDS!!! :yay: I love the inclusion of that angel stabbing the demon, and the dragon-demon thing looks very powerful and realistic. Oh, and thank you so much for drawing angels with impressive wings. I can't stand it when people draw them with little chicken wings.

OH - BY - THE - HOLY - BALLS! This is soo good, I love every pixel of it!
Brony4 Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2013
Great picture but something I never got was why angels are depicted as people with wings (since angels are NOT people and NEVER were) and why the demons are displayed as twisted monsters (shouldn't they look just like angels but with maybe different armor)? I mean they are the same species so shouldn't they look no different then a Chinese person compared to a British person? Just saying.

The reasoning for this is that, Biblically, angels often appeared as human-like beings with wings (so that is at least an option) while in Revelation 12 Satan is specifically referred to as a huge red dragon.

everyone thinks that angels have halos and protect people, and seem to forget that they're warriors, so this is awesome, I love how it's like we're hovering near Micheal (I'm guessing) and can see everything that's happening

Hey, Mr. Talbott, can I pick your brain for a moment?
Your art is what inspired me to completely work my Nephilim demigod protectors as not only concepts, but as real characters in the universe I am working on for a novel. I keep playing around with their armor, wanting to make it like yours, but going instead with my own "comic book" design so that I am not copying you. BUT, I'm having a devil of a time (no pun intended) coming up with the proper colors. I wanted to do teal at first, but when I commissioned the Nephilim king nothing about him looked right with the teal armor. What colors do you prefer to see on angel warriors? What colors truly blend together instead of combat to make the work like a jumbled mess of random paint splashes?
WesTalbott Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2013  Professional Artist
Well typically I prefer bright light colors like whites cremes light blues and greens, and mostly golds for angels. typically in color theory you have your complementary color schemes (colors on opposing sides of the color wheel) and your analagous color schemes. (colors that sit next to each other on the color wheel). if you want to use teal, that is bluegreen, so the complement would be Orangered. Analagous colors would be green and blue or if you push it a bit farther, yellowgreen and blueviolet.
Jeht-Maverick Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2013
Thanks! :3 I'll keep that in mind when I'm coloring armor again.
TheLittleGreenImp Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2013
Lovely details:) This is the most impressive clash between angels and demons I've seen good job and keep it up :D
Fawls Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013
Too bad it's fictional. But yeah, nice work, other than the obviously incorrect portrayal of Lucifer's rebels, as they were also angels who were sick of being treated like slaves.
Jeht-Maverick Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2013
Uh... no. Lucifer and his followers rebelled because they wanted Lucifer on the throne, and for him to rule over the Earth. They wanted us to be puppets, but apparently you're FOR being a power-hungry fallen angel's puppet.

Angels are the coolest.

The thing that truly hooked me to closely examine your wonderful picture is the sense of dimension you managed to give it. It looks really deep and plastic, what with all the clouds, the great use of canishing points, and even the wings of the foremost character.
(The wingsy, by the way, are so stunning they desever a mention in their own right. I LOVE wings and I adore how natural these look!)
The colours are stunning and their disposition is done with great care and an eye for aesthetics. All in all, this is a really great work! I couldn't think of anything to criticize at all.
