7 Princes of Hell: Belphegor by darksilvania 7 Princes of Hell: Belphegor by darksilvania
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

Love the concept.  It's honestly kind of inspiring a design of my own which also draws from Doom and the like.  I feel like I should credit you for it, though, but I can't wait to share some of the concepts once they're ready. :D

I think Geoffery Rush voice is the closest to resemble Belphegor, you know when he played as Barbosa from Pirates of the Caribbean?

Not really a big fan of steampunk, but this is simply great!

well, if you want a complex job done with the least amount of work, ask a lazy person

King of Sloth, invents something so he doesn't have to walk. Love the symbolism~

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.

Presumably he also poops in there.
nehehetrol Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2013
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.

Nice character development. This guy is awesome.
AmrasFelagund Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013
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...
gothold Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2012
This looks very steam punk to me.
BlackIce779 Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2012
seen all 7 princes and they are all awesome :D you should do the archangels or a rough design of them, to see how they would be interpreted :D

Now that is wicked! =D (No pun intended ;p)
The detail of his mobile throne is absolutely stunning! :wow:
Brilliant! :thumbsup:

Something that Eggman from Sonic would look Like.
By which, I mean a Cyborg.
Dorumon7 Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2012
Woah, he looks pretty creepy. Somehow reminds me of the villain from the Wild Wild West movie with Will Smith haha
Phoenix-God-of-Fire Featured By Owner May 23, 2012
it wouldn't surprise me if his last name was eggman

I always personally found the notion to Belphegor as a demon rather paradoxical. While he is supposed to embody indolence, at the same time he supposed to inspire people with ideas for inventions.
FreeRadicle Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2012
Steampunk demon ftw!
"Demon sitting on a toilet?" :rofl: I'm sorry, I just died when I read that part.
It's funny, he's so lazy he actually has to work to compensate for his laziness!
nemedeus Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
this is very smart.

Thats what like Robotnik's Grandpa must look like

Excelent work on this one, quite ingenious making him part machine.
Gusindor Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2011  Student General Artist
Hmmm, I notice he has a cross-hairs on one eye. That makes sense, because the demon of sloth is probably too lazy to fight in melee. It's so much easier just to launch a missile. Also, I wouldn't have been able to appreciate your art without a computer. So are we doing this demons dirty work for him, or are we using his own tools against him? OH! Did Belphegor create science too, to try and rob us of our faith (Creation v.s. Evolution and all that?) 'Cause that's what I'd have done if I were a demon associated with inventions.

Soo.....I should trhow away my computer since a demon probably made it? O_O?
