The Boxer by ALRadeck The Boxer by ALRadeck
In the clearing stands a boxer and a fighter by his trade
And he carries the reminder of every glove that laid him down
And cut him, till he cried out, in his anger and his shame
"I am leaving I am leaving" but the fighter still remains
-[link]


READ THE NOVEL HERE: [link]

So Raziel didn't always have little chicken stubs for wings, and despite his failings early on in the first novel, he used to be a very skilled, multi-talented individual with a great amount of respect tied to his name. Even though he'd probably rather have a different job then fighting demons, he was pretty good at it.

After things went to shit - for reasons that you should read the novel - he was demoted far down that ladder, they let him keep his old "serious" fighting gear. But it wasn't a show of respect, moreso insult to injury, being overly- armored for fighting off family pets and such. Though anything lost or broken after that point was no longer replaced; hence why it's a little patchy within the context of the story. So there you go; not totally necessary background information for you.

Though even wit that, there's some discrepancy in this image - he got the pike at a later date then something like this would've taken place - Raziel namely fought with swords and such prior to these events, and the pike came in later as extra insult, medium range weapon for a cocker spaniel after the last sword broke.

Anyways! I've been terrible with the novel lately in getting chapters out; there's just a couple left on this last book, and i want to do it right.
Quickish doodle- just about 3 hours of work. I sketched this up at about 9, had my body kinda crash on me so I slept for 2.5 hours, then woke up and finished this. I need to illustrate more Raziel images- he's a great character to elaborate details on.

Awesome painting, and I love that song (especially the mumford and sons cover). I really need to read the second book of this story, seeing as I enjoyed the first one so much.
