OK I'm working on a comic book with a main character thats an angel.Therefore I really need some pointers and ideas.However the I reason came here is because I really don't want this character to be so much as religion based(after all he is half angel/half demon) and more interesting to read.
Who really are angels and would this really cause a big confrontation(religion wise) if I publish this comic book.
Why would you want to publish a comic book about a demon? I contemplated giving you pointers until you said that the character would be a demon.
Don't let the enemy (satan) deceive you, receive Christ into your heart and life. Hell abounds with atheists. If they could turn back the hands of time they would desperately reach for Jesus and the chance to go to Heaven. But there is no more hope for them. Don't be numbered among them. The Holy Spirit bears witness that what I speak is Truth.
Jesus Christ is Lord. Do you want eternal life? Then admit that you are a sinner, then ask Jesus Christ to give you life eternal. Jesus does not condemn you, He died for you. Will you accept Jesus now? This good news is for anyone to take advantage of. God loves the world and gave His only Begotten Son, that whoever [this includes you] believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.
Love (i.e. Jesus Christ) wants to take you out of darkness and into His marvelous light. Will you accept? Jesus' heart desire is to give you everlasting love, life, joy, peace, comfort, happiness, glory, and sin-free consciousness. Will you receive His love? Simply ask Jesus Christ to save you from sin, satan, and from Hell. Repent: turn away from sin after admitting that you are a sinner. Jesus will wash away every sin and pour out His love upon you. The words that I speak to you are the true sayings of God Almighty. Read the Bible and see that the Lord is good. He is not holding anything against you. He has not condemned you. Jesus came to save souls not condemn them. Love--Jesus Christ--will wait for your decision. If you should choose satan, your decision will be honored by God. But choose Life, choose the Prince of Peace, choose Jesus Christ, the Son of God and you will receive eternal life. This good news is for everyone and anyone else who reads it
No it's not what you think.The book is not all about a demon but about a creature who was cursed and must learn to fight the darkness inside of him.Giving into all that is good(kind of like what most of us do everyday of our lives).So it's not like that ok. sorry if you got the wrong idea
Since you're not really looking for religous influence, this might be the place for this question. Probably an OTF thread.
Personally, as I design characters myslef, I usually base them more on the role I want them to play. What the character needs to adequately complete hsi role, he gets as part of his personality. If you want my help, you cna pm me.
PS. A piece of advice. Ignore JIA. He is the resident wacko.
I don't know if you already have some ideas in mind, but IMO, taking an unconventional approach will help your character stand-out from other angel-based characters.
An excellent movie for seeing angels depicted in a Not-business-as-usual manner is "City of Angels" with Nicholas Cage and Meg Ryan. Very well done, very interesting depiction of these divine messengers.
Other bits of advice:
- Stay away from spandex.
- Don't make the character so powerful you have a hard time writing challenging situations (without resorting to PIS, anyway).
- Consider an adversary based on JIA ( j/k)
Shinier than a speeding bullet.
Thanks guys. I'm already working on the costume I have a few designs(no spandex)lol.Also, he gains his powers as he matures and for a very short time is the most powerful-est being in the whole universe.However he loses some of he power due to the fact that he sacrificed it to safe another Universe. I also need a really cool symbol I was thinking of a cross at first but I'm still thinking.
The Prophecy, God through His Word (i.e. the holy Bible) instructs us to abstain from every form of evil. Demons are not good, righteous nor are they holy. Thus, they are evil. We must not glorify demons, but instead we must glorify God. Do all to the glory of God. If you want to make a comic then do so to the or for the glory of God. Much success.
1 Thessalonians 5:22 Abstain from every form of evil.
1 Corinthians 10:31
Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
2 Corinthians 5:8-10
We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord. Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to Him. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.
