Revelation 8:1-2 (ANIV)
The Seventh Seal & the Golden Censer
1 When he opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.
2 And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and to them were given seven trumpets.
TIME OF DAY:
Not specified in the account.
Heaven is full of light and the angels have a glow about them all of which illuminates this scene.
01) (Previous page) Revelation 08 – Seventh seal – Scene 01 – Seventh seal: silence and trumpets (with scroll).
02) (This page) Revelation 08 – Seventh seal – Scene 01 – Seventh seal: silence and trumpets (without scroll).
The only difference between the two versions is the inclusion or absence of the 7 seal scroll in the bottom left corner of the scene. I wondered if it might detract from the overall impact of the scene for some viewers, hence its absence in the 2nd version.
The seven trumpets given to the seven angels are descending from God above. I decided to make each of the trumpets bodies represent the judgement type that it brings. Below is the sketch I drew of the various designs.
