7 Princes of Hell: Beelzebub by Darksilvania 7 Princes of Hell: Beelzebub by Darksilvania
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

draw necronomicon plz
Nice design. 
The idea I had was a being that was literary nothing but skin and bones.
His head looks like a alligator, with a long mouth that he stuffs with massive amounts of food by using massively long arms to grab everything that he can see and eat.

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

King of Gluttony himself, love how you made him have so many mouths to devour more~
pervertsage Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2013
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.

I was looking for this one now its going in favorites great job. keep it up.
jemdesign Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2013
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

J'adore tout ce que tu fais, c'est super !!!, continue comme ša ! :D
AmrasFelagund Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
An insectoid design only makes sense for Beelzebub, considering that whole "Lord Of The Flies" title. The mouths are a good touch...
NaitoroTheHedgehog Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2012
i wonder why no hades?
Magnolia667 Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2013
Because Hades is a Greek god and has nothing to do with the 7 sins.

Oh my god, this design is so amazing!! :ohnoes: Would it be possible to adopt this design?

Fantastic! =D
The multiple mouths are very... unsettling. :fear:
But they're definitely part of his gluttonous nature!
Hakkyou-no-Yami Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2012
whoa now that is one messed up bug as well in a good way, so many details are put into this.
siborg626 Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2012
Does he Talk with all Mouths at once, 1 at a time on different body part, or just the 1 mouth on his Head?
geogreylord Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2012
Each should have a different voice and tone.
ClassyMan7 Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2012
of all your 7 princes, this is my favorite. It takes unique take on the traditional concept of gluttony by making it more pestilential manifestation. In a way, this fits the destructive exaggeration of the sin way better than most traditional depictions of gluttony which just associate gluttony with over-eating. No one ever thinks of the millions that starve because of the appetite. This depiction of gluttony is absolutely brilliant and also fits with the idea of Pestilence as one of the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse. I could see the Pestilential rider riding a beast such as this. truly well done. an ambitious project and very well inspired, but this is the centerpiece of this collection

I...I almost can't tell where his actual head is...they're everywhere...:fear:
Lol, you're right; bugs are the real gluttons of the world. Nothing says gluttony like something that would happily eat dog poo.
How long did this take you anyway?
