The Reaper by aelur
The Reaper


For a long time I’ve been fascinated by the different aspects associated with the figure of Lucifer, and thus I thought it might be a good time to try and create a painting celebrating those aspects. 
It wasn’t until a few years ago I had the chance to listen to Green and Grey sung by Damh the Bard, and I was weirded out by the association of the devil with the green man/the lord of the forest. The concept was weirdly attractive, as I think it derived from the Pan-like depictions of Satan in popular religious art. Thus the weird wooden-like figure represents the Green Man Lucifer. The red face with the fangs was inspired by decorated skulls from South East Asia, and is meant to represent the shamanic aspects of Lucifer as an initiator (which I think is it’s first and most important role in the Bible, as he’s the one that “initiates” Even to the truth of the Garden). He’s the old shaman that initiates its successor.
On his shoulder there’s a Quetzal, and behind him a corn field; two things I took from Central and South American mythologies as for us south americans Lucifer is also related in his aspect as the son of dawn/morning star to Quetzalcoatl, who’s also a Promethean-like figure associated with the morning star. The corn represents the creation myth in south american cultures, as men were thought to have been created out of corn (as famously depicted in the Popol Vuh, which by the way, I read before even knowing about greek and roman myths haha).
Seated on the wooden chair is Humanity, having an epiphany. On her lap there’s a peacock, a symbol for Melek Taus (who is not really ‘Satan’ but he’s a proud angel who God assigned the task of creating the world in Yazidi religion). In the back, a cave, yet another symbol for initiation as it was the most popular destination for anyone who was into mystery traditions. The black sun in the sky, as well, signifies the first stage of initiation (sol niger - the first stage in alchemical operation).

The Sun
The sun is where Phoenix and Mujercita meet. It is the explosion of creative (positive) action, where disorder becomes order and shadows lurk.

Cities
Cities, a small comic that came out of moving out from one city into another, having to adjust to a different culture and feeling the pangs of home sickness.

Cities

gonna sketch a quick comic of my impression of these three cities. i haven’t been able to get it off my head, thinking of anthropomorphic representations of them. dublin as esentially bernard black (dylan moran), buenos aires as adriana varela (a tango singer) and paris as an androginous person (modeled after andreja pejic)

(also yes the irish name of dublin is baile atha cliath, i just have bad memory)

The Final Judgment by aelur
The Final Judgment

The onlooker crosses path with Phoenix, yet another character in this story, and he’s the one to appear when the onlooker peeks into this world.
