7 Princes of Hell: Beelzebub by darksilvania 7 Princes of Hell: Beelzebub by darksilvania
Beelzebub
The fifth prince of hell, Beelzebub, Lord of the flies
Like a plague of locust or an army of ants, Beelzebub is always moving, always eating. He only exists to plunder and devour, gulping and guzzling anything the crosses his path of ravaging consumption, being crops, cattle, flesh, bone, blood or soul.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

5th prince of hell and probably the most detailed until now

Beelzebub is the demon of gluttony, so many people suggested a huge fat and disgusting monster, resembling a pig, with food everywhere and such, but pigs are not the only creatures who eat a lot and I thought that was an idea that was already too used.

Beelzebub is the lord of the flies, or at least thats what his name means, so I wanted a a bug approach, since we all know that when it comes to eating, no ones better than bugs, like caterpillars who devour leaves, locusts eating crops, even worms, beetles and flies devouring corpses. Also, while pigs usually eat just trash and leftovers, bugs tend to eat thing we still need to live, becoming feared plagues.

So his body is an amalgam of bugs, with jaws in every conjoint, his body has treats from a beetle, a spider, a mantis, a centipede and much more. His horns are supposed to resemble antennas, and he has eyes, everywhere.

I used blue cuz I hasn't used it yet, and I'm reserving green for the next one

so hope you like it

This design is so much better than the 'common fly' design people use so often.

while you are correct that the Lord of the Flies would make this particular demon look like an ever hungry monster that constantly ravages everything in its path to satiate its hunger you are wrong in some points.
Beelzebub regardless of his second title "the lord of the flies" he isnt related at all with hunger, he is considered by many a the demon king of sloth and by others the demon king of gluttony.
Normally (according to the dictionaire infernal) he is just a gigantic flie that propagates diseases wherever it goes without stoping.

This is the most original depiction I have ever seen of Beelzebub. Also, the description made me think of Nyarlathotep from the Cthulhu Mythos. I wonder if the two are related? O_O
