Angel of Justice

Had this idea in my head for almost a year, looking up at an angel as he is taking out his sword to deliver justice.  I started painting it over the summer and realized half way through that the composition was TERRIBLE, so I abandoned it.  A few weeks ago I was messing around in my sketchbook and did a sketch of the same idea of an angel unsheathing a fearsome looking sword.  This sketch had the energy and drama that was completely missing in my previous attempt.  So I scanned the drawing and took some more reference photos and I came out with this, something I am really happy with.
