with his horn of truthiness, tons of wings, a couple halos, his big ol’ blade–the works. no animal heads for him both because my brain is lazy AND because he’s a super high tier that i don’t think needs them. you’ll see he has a couple similarities to cas, y'know, ‘cause they’re family and all that jazz! (OH AND he’s probably about 1200’!!)
Imagine a combo of these, since I love them both so much:
“What the hell?”
Dean sat up with a frown. The last thing he remembered was hunting a truth-sorceress who saw into everyone’s “heart of hearts” (whatever that meant), but now?
Now he found himself in a vast expanse of white. There was no ceiling, and no walls. The whiteness stretched up from the vague idea of a floor beneath him, and remained unbroken until….
Dean squinted. Something stood out against the bright background, but it blended so well it was hard to tell. It looked like it was draped in white fabric, which was why he could barely make it out.
Whatever it was, though, it was huge. Like, the size of a building.
Was he in Heaven? That was a place usually described like a bright, white room, right?
But no, he’d been to Heaven and it wasn’t like this at all.
So where was he? An alternate dimension? A dream? Limbo?
A groan resonated through the air, and the hairs on Dean’s arms stood up. His eyes trained on the thing in the distance, which had begun to stir.
Dean tensed and felt himself for weapons. He still wore his clothes from earlier, but everything was gone - even the knife he kept in his boot.
The thing finally shifted to reveal four sets of enormous black wings that reared up into the air. The creature rose, its wings furled behind it, and with the black backdrop, Dean could see it much more clearly.
It was…breathtaking. Still the size of a building, but now vertical; it appeared to have been reclined on its side, before. Dean was right about the fabric, for it wore long, white robes that obscured its feet and figure. It bore the hands of a human, but needle-like claws jutted from its fingertips, and its head…
It had three of them that sprouted from a single neck, each facing a different direction: a zebra, an ox, and what could only be described as a porcelain mask of a human face. The mask-head had pupil-less blue eyes, and craned forward on its own worm-like neck.
Dean froze when giant blue orbs fixated on him. For some reason, he was reminded of Cas, and that’s when the creature cocked its head.
THIS WAS A GOOD TIME. you’ll see some twisted stag horns, sections of a viper skull, bunches upon bunches of wings, a broken halo, etc. he still has the essence of the angels i’ve done, but the visage of something every demon would worship in its stead.
his chains form the alchemical symbol for sulfur. and he’s also gigantic–i like sticking to the building comparisons, so he’s about the size of the burj khalifa–nearly 3,000’ tall!
im pretty proud of this, even though it’s not really ~mystical~ and just looks like an amalgamation of bullshit.
this is what i think castiel probably looks like outside of his meatsuit, i may use the design for other things bcus im pretty fond of it.
AU where Cas is stuck as a lesser version of his true form when they get to Purgatory. I had two sketches and liked them both, so I just played with two different atmospheric takes on roughly the same scene.
i didn’t really have a solid direction to take him in, except i wanted to combine elements of the lucifer and gabriel to create the "perfect” warrior, while still being fearsome and somewhat difficult to comprehend. turned out alright i think!
2 of his appendages are shields, 2 others are blades, and the other 2 are my “regular” angel extensions for quick blade draw/wielding. he has a lot more wings than i’m showing here, but the smallest bottom set that i have revealed are also weaponized. wherein gabriel is laid-back, i wanted michael to look a bit more like he was peacocking! (speaking of, size-wise he’s probably a good halfway point between luci and gabe)
Cas hovering over and around Dean and encompassing him in his true form, all warm blue light and low humming vibrations and the sensation of tiny, tiny sparks that run over Dean’s skin and leave a pleasant shiver in their wake. Dean feels smaller than ever before, and safer than ever before. And whereas in the beginning, he was frozen in awe and felt unworthy of even looking upon Castiel when he was like this, he now relaxes into the endless embrace and sighs softly and contentedly, his hands reaching for the mass of wrath and righteousness and gentle adoration without hesitation, smiling without fear and cradling Cas to his body, holding him close to his heart, just like Cas cradles him.
I’ve seen you burn demons to dust with a gentle touch of your fingers, blink of an eye, they’re gone.
I’ve seen you hold an intense staring contest with a horse, giving it as much effort and focus as you would a life-or-death task, both of you trapped in it, exchanging the secrets of the universe it seemed from the outside, blink of an eye, they lost, you smirked like a smug bastard.
I’ve seen you obliterate a full room of monsters, all bright fury, I closed my eyes, they were gone.
I’ve seen you comfort that kid we almost didn’t save, keeping him safely wrapped in your arms, “estás bien, ahora estás seguro. Tranquilo, ya te tengo, no voy a dejar que te pase nada”, whispering reassurances he could understand, protecting him like you would the most precious thing, blink of an eye, I felt a pang of longing, it hurt, I wished it were gone.
I’ve seen you wield your blade like a scorpion would its sting, a snake would its fang, a tiger would its claw, an extension of your body, the reflection of the light in your swift silver movements the last vision of many enemies, blink of an eye, they were gone.
I’ve seen you smile like an idiot at a cup of coffee, your eyes lighting up at the bitter taste in your tongue, even with the aftertaste of molecules, still love to indulge when you can, a soft sweetness painted over your features when I prepare it for you, drinking slowly, blink of an eye, it wasn’t gone, taking your time to savour it.
I’ve seen you carve yourself open, bleeding yourself out for me, faced a room full of angels, flashing lights, blink of an eye, you were all gone.
I’ve seen you looking at me accross the room, looking at me from a few steps away, looking at me as you stop right in front of me, adoration and warmth pooled in your eyes as you raise a hand to my cheek, as I look back at you, as you cup the back of my neck and bring our lips together, our whole selves too, I close my eyes as you deepen your kiss, as you make yourself at home in the deepest nooks of my soul, I keep my eyes closed with my forehead against yours, I am so far gone for you.
I’ve seen you swallowing the thousand suns of burning damned souls, being broken by their fire, unravelled into a shadow of yourself, smiting anyone unfortunate enough to cross your path, dissolving into a monster, you looked at me with empty eyes in bloody sockets, it wasn’t you, blink of an eye, you were so far gone I didn’t know where to find you.
You are vast, you are a giant, a cosmic enigma I can’t even begin to fathom, you are sempiternal and yet constantly evolving, you are light and you are shadow and you are none of those, you contain infinite multitudes of selves in yourself, you are my friend, my love, my enemy, my pillar, my support, an otherworldly universe out of my reach and yet reaching out to me.
the other one of the two sketches is now painted!! i’m so happy to have my computer back, and i was able to do both using it. my confidence is back!! (•̀o•́)ง this is one of the many pieces that’ll be featured in god’n’gabe iii!
so i drew a horse skull mainly because i really like horse skulls, but upon further inspection, my stream viewers did find out that dreaming of a white horse, and sometimes gray horses, can be death omens! so that’s a definite plus…well, you know, kinda.
he’s covered in rusted knives and other torture devices, with relatively low wings to help support the breaking wheel between his shoulders. so, they’re relatively useless. all things considered, he’s fairly simple–and a bit less on the height scale as far as the other demons go, measuring at about 600’!
she has a bat skull because i’ve always seen here as a little character, but they’re pretty formidable. she’s big and tough, her arms doubling as wings for weapons, surveying, speed, transportation, etc. those were a good amount of the things meg had goin for her–as well as being a thorny beauty c:
i’ve been asked about lilith and given all sorts of descriptions and all this sorta stuff, but i don’t know, i think of her as a pretty humanlike-kinda-thing. i didn’t use a reference for anything because i wanted her to be imperfect, but still a little elegant?? which is sorta canceled out by a halo forcibly shoved through the neck i suppose
this is one of those like crowley, where i may redo it at a later time! :u
Can I roll around in your true form art? Just lemme roll in it. Just a lil bit. A tiny bit plsssss. Ugh. Is it odd that I find the fact that true form Dean is taller than Cas really cute? I headcanon that Dean holds that over Cas because why not? And now he can give him patronizing forehead smooches and quickly deny that it ever happened SAM no I did not just kiss a Chrysler building angel that's impossible you're crazy I'd bet you'd bet I wouldn't do it again. Oyeah? *smooch* Pay up Sammy boy.
THANK YOU thank you!! i actually received quite a bit of flak for making dean taller! but it’s like, looking at the physical form, cas is more formidably built and could easily take dean out, it’s just that dean is taller. i definitely see it also in a “the bigger they are, the harder they fall” kind of way
WHICH BRINGS FORTH CUTE
I’m honestly still not over the muscular Sammy thing
this is a little simplified (well, i mean, y’know, as simple as i think i could do) version of the trueform of gabriel! FOR REASONS
front/back aren’t perfect layovers of each other, but i did it in a bit of a rush. still like it though! this is the first one i’ve shown a semblance of a color scheme for, but i’d really like to do detailed schemes for all of them!
