7 Princes of Hell: Belphegor by darksilvania 7 Princes of Hell: Belphegor by darksilvania
Belphegor
Seventh prince of hell, Belphegor, the inventor.
The prince of sloth, Belphegor tricks men with inventions that will make their lives much easier, and will take them away from their hard jobs. But this is just a trap, in order for makind to abandon activity, relaying them on machines, and thus abandoning their bodies, and minds and souls to sloth.

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

FINALLY, the last one of my seven princes of hell, Belphegor the prince of sloth.

Belpehegor was a very hard one, as he is normally represented by a demon sitting on a toilet, or a beautiful girl, and none of those seamed to be good options to represent the demon of sloth.

But then I read his powers, and this came up

As I said before, Belphegor is a demon who gives men inventions to make them lazy, so, I wanted to apply the same idea to him. As Belphegor is a very lazy demon, but yet a very intelligent one, I made him somehow of a mad inventor who crafts machines to make his own tasks easier, to the point of mechanizing his onw body, replacing his eye, hands and lower body with machines.

His body is incredibly heavy, more by the plates of steel than by his own fat, but yet moves quickly thanks to his mechanincal power.

for the machinery I went for a Steampunk look rather than a modern robot style, as he is a demon, and I wanted something that looked old, ancient and kinda rusty, and steampunk fitted pretty well.

Also, his wings are strapped because he is to lazy to fly using them, he rather will build some kind of rocket device.

Well, this is the last one of the seven, I'm not going to make the archangels so dont ask for them

Hope you like it and see you soon

Finally, the last prince of Hell. To me, Belphegor looks the most human compared to the other princes, mainly because his skin is the same color as human skin, and your depiction really makes up for the "not so creative" design that other sources have given him.

Also, it's a shame that you won't be doing the archangels. I would have liked to have seen them in your style.

I've just revisited your princes of hell series, and I have to say I'm really impressed. You have displayed a lot of originality and creativity in your depictions of them, breaking away from stereotypes while still staying true to the essence of the demon. It would also be awesome to see you redraw these guys in your current style, I think they would look even more badass.

Like a demonic Dr. Robotnik! He'd rather put his intellect towards making his life more and more lazy than actually try to help people out...
