Here’s a little pencil portrait of a lesser aristocrat of hell. I didn’t have any particular prince in mind while I was drawing, I assume this is one of the little guys who only command like one or two legions of devils and probably doesn’t have any impressive manifestations. Some weird smash-face antlered dog monster with a patchy frock coat and no pants is about as good as he gets. Maybe he can also appear as a single withered fig on a chipped pottery plate, and “thee hump of a Cammel, set upon a skating-board of no great Qualitye, ande Fyve Trumpetts Behind.” His name is Squalmagog.
If you want to buy this sketch (it’s 4x6”, graphite and white ink on paper) send me an ask or a fan mail (or a twitter @3liza) with an offer; I’m not real pumped on making a whole Etsy listing tonight!
It’s probably because I’ve had a penchant for the Spiderwick chronicles field guide recently, but this reminds me of Tony DiTerlizzi’s faery beast sketches.
