Commission - Demogorgon, God of Demons by jocarra Commission - Demogorgon, God of Demons by jocarra
A bold bad man, that dar'd to call by name
Great Gorgon, Prince of darknesse and dead night,
At which Cocytus quakes, and Styx is put to flight.

Downe in the bottome of the deepe Abysse
Where Demogorgon in dull darknesse pent,
Farre from the view of Gods and heauens blis,
The hideous Chaos keepes, their dreadfull dwelling is.


Another commission to fill Aeto's hellish ranks!  In his lore, Demogorgon is the god of all demons and lord of hell and the abyss.

~10 hours Adobe Photoshop CS5.

This bitch is sick
And i don't mean as in "its' health," i mean that it looks wickedly badass
And i wonder from whose folklore did it originate

Hahah, thanks so much!

In this case, it was the client's personal take on the Demogorgon - he's a big fan of demons and their related mythology.  As for the demogorgon itself, I believe it originally came about as a misreading of the Greek word for demiurge.

I read Demogorgon, and immediately started thinking about Stranger Things.

I'm sure a lot of people did!  After Stranger Things came out, a ton of its "demogorgon" images started popping up instead of the actual original creature I was looking for!

I wish Wizards of the Coast had you design their monsters. THAT is a Demogorgon I can see ruling hell.

No problem when I see Wizards' Demgorgon I think "This will be tough, but we can take him." When I see yours I think, "Oh S***!" :)

The Self-proclaimed, 'Prince of Demons', Demogorgon itself. This version of Demogorgon looks really badass.

Your attention to detail is, as per usual, amazing.  The textures and lighting is beautifully done.  I especially like the blue & red 'fires' in each head.

Oh...and I NEVER want to meet that thing! ;)

...you know, my first reaction to this is: "HOLY SHIT WHAT THE HELL IS THAT THING!?"

Which, considering that this is the 'God of Demons' I would say thta's a valid reaction wouldn't you?
