Edit: Updated this. I wasn't digging the grey-blue wings, and I messed with the whole thing a little bit. Better, I think.
A fellow Castiel fan asked for "badass" Castiel, and I mulled over it for a while. Oh, he can be BA, no question. Sometimes just the tone of his voice makes a dude want to quake in his shoes. But when I think about Castiel, I mostly see his slump-shouldered posture in that big old trenchcoat, head cocked in confusion. It's sweet, but it's not badass, and I was having trouble with ideas.
But if you've been following me for a while, you know I've done a handful of Legion fanart, and I thought, hey shit, I sure would love to see Castiel decked out in Gabriel's armor. I tweaked it some to suit him, and I really dig it. You need a nice outfit to go to battle, right?
I realize I made him left-handed, but why not. And I had only the vaguest reference for wings, so forgive me if they're super anatomically off. I mean, we're talkin' about angels, here, so.[ reblog on Tumblr ]
