Day 6 of 30 day drawing challenge: Favorite Book Characters (without a movie adaptation)
Aziraphale and Crowley of Good Omens fame. Ah modern day angel and demon hijinx~

The image is in reference to when the two bring out their wings and it turns out that actually Crowley has the prim wings while Aziraphale's are unkempt and messy. I guess it's a matter of priorities over pride.

But hey, if Aziraphale can get Crowley to fight in favor of something "Godly" then it must be a victory all around, right? :B

Also, I was thinking of including Bartimaeus from the Bartimaeus trilogy here as another favorite book character option... However, his look is less iconic since, well, he never stays in one form for long. Even the Ptolemy skin would evoke thoughts of Egypt first, rather than a snarky djin xD

Also, I only noticed this as I was finishing this image, but it looks like I drew these two in the school colors of A&M and UT.... Subliminal colors of conflict, apparently lD;;;;

I love Aziraphale's attitude-- and Crowley's disapproval. You'd think it'd be the other way around, wouldn't you? ;)

I love how you drew them! So close to my mental images of the characters, especially Aziraphale.

I could totally see those three in a crossover together--the mythology is like completely incompatible, but they would bounce so nicely off each other.

Their expressions! Dear lord, their expressions are so amazingly fitting! :D

And considering the fact that others have already told you about the wings thing, I'll save myself the trouble of typing out something you've already read.

xD Hehe! Thank you so much. I'm excited that people are enjoying the expressions.

As for the wing thing, I am glad readers are reaffirming my guess; It's been a few years since I've read GO, so the correction is well in order xD

Ah, I see. This is why I bought the book, to keep my memories fresh! Plus, I never stop giggling at all the same parts.

And it is Aziraphale with the dirty wings, demons keep theirs clean. Vanity and all that. ;)

Thank you! And thanks for the correction/ reaffirming I made the right choice here. It's been a few years since I've read GO, so its good to know my memory of it hasn't been muddled xD

I love this picture, and Aziraphale is th one with unkempt wings. The book states that the only difference between angel wings and demon wings are that demon wings are better groomed. Pride maybe?

hollarity Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2011  Student General Artist
That would make much sense. While an Angel has responsibilities to prioritize, part of a Demon's itinerary WOULD be looking sharp and enticing.

Yeah, and I have a feeling Zira just wouldn't care. Crowley on the other hand...look at how he takes care of his CAR. And his wings are a PART OF HIM. He wouldn't stand for anything less than perfection. :XD:
