7 Princes of Hell: Leviathan by Darksilvania 7 Princes of Hell: Leviathan by Darksilvania
The Sixth prince of Hell, Leviathan, the coiled one.
Imprisoned by God itself, his desire to be as great as angels and demons lead him to scape from time to time to eat the moon. But yet, desiring more, he became a prince and his mouth became the gates of hell itself. But yet, he wants more...


Prince of hell number 6, big ol' Leviathan

Leviathan is the demon of envy, and envy is the desire of others superior qualities, achievements, or possessions, and trying to represent that into a creature its not an easy task, but I didnt wanted to just make a big snake or sea monster.

Then I found that while in jewish folklore leviathan is a mere monster, in christian demonlogy, his work is to be the Hellmouth, the entrance of hell, and an idea came to me.

His design could be considered the one of a Lamia, with the only detail that his torso is in fact coming out of the snake mouth.

Making emphasis in the idea of the hellmouth, I added first a fire like tattoo decorating the human part as it comes from the snake mouth, and also, the human head breaths hellfire.

The horns are supposed to resemble snake fangs, and the whole look is suppossed to look depressed and kinda angry, as in someone who is never satisfied with himself, always looking out for others traits, and always plotting how to stole them.

Added a rattle, cuz for me, if it has no rattle, its not a good snake nwn

well, hope you like it

Finish reading this
until it is done! As I said, I am
Teddy. I am 7 years old. I have no eyes
and blood all over my face. I am dead.
If you don't send this to at least 12
people I will come to your house at
midnight and I'll hide under your bed.
When you're asleep, I'll kill you.
Don't believe me?"no"
Case 1:
Patty Buckles
Got this e-mail. She doesn't believe
in chain letters. Well, Foolish Patty.
She was sleeping when her TV started
flickering on and off. Now she's not
with us anymore. Ha ha patty, Ha ha!
You don't want to be like Patty, do
Case 2:
George M. Simon
Hates chain mail, but he didn't want
to die that night. He sent it to 4
people. Not good enough George. Now,
George is in a coma, we don't know if
he'll ever wake up. Ha ha George, Ha
ha! Now, do you want to be like George?
Case 3:
Valarie Tyler
She got this letter. Another chain
letter she thought. Only had 7 people
send to. Well, That night when she was
having a shower she saw bloody Mary
in the mirror. It was the BIGGEST
fright of her life. Valarie is scarred
Case 4:
Derek Minse
This is the final case I'll tell you
about. Well, Derek was a smart person.
He sent it to 12 people. Later that
day, he found a $100.00 bill on the
ground. He was premoted to head
officer at his job and his girlfriend
yes to his purposal. Now, Katie and
him are living happily ever after.The
have 2 beautiful children.
Send this to at least 12 people or
you'll face the consequences.
0 people- You will die tonight
1-6 people- you will be injured
7-11 people- you will get the biggest
fright of your life
12 and over- you are safe and will
have good fortune

Very nice! I love the colors. They pop right off the page.  The only suggestion I would say is maybe making some of the lines darker in some areas, like the arms which kind of blend into the background. Perhaps darker shading on the tail that goes behind the body would help bring that out.  Other than that though it's very well done.

Leviathon is the Devil of the Sea.

I love your portrayal of Leviathan, I love the combination of serpent and human.

Could i use your seven princes of hell drawings to help inspire me of making my own demon versions of my oc's i you don't mind I'm not going to copy them only for inspiration.
Orbita2k2 Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
King of Envy. I love that you used the color green, for ironic reasons, and that you made it serpentine. Love it~
Magnolia667 Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2013
He's green. 'Green with envy'. I see what you did there.

Dear sweet god this is an amazing series~ I absolutely love what you did with these. a fav for the lot! its not very often that we see illustrations from the psuedomonarchia daemonium here on DA. cheers~
hostilesinbound Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2013
Very interesting I am also into angels, demonology and mythology in general... very nice work, it looks crisp!
jemdesign Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2013
Like Beelzebub, I consider this to be the most original depiction of Leviathan. Giving him human qualities does not take away from his menacing appearance.
DeadlyTigerProd Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2013  Student Writer
Very neat. Also thanks for explaining why he's envy. In the original description of him from the book of Job it makes him out to sound more prideful than envious. Or at least I think it does.
AmrasFelagund Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Green is a good colour for the demon of envy, considering the association of green with envy.
Gt-infinity Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012
Nice representation of the demon of envy, but can you do all of them, all of princes in female form
storming-darkness Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2012
Wasn't leviathen thought of as female?
TheNightmareCooper Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
Awesome. So far, he's my favorite prince, but maybe because I'm just snake geek, I don't know.
gothold Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2012
excellent work! love the way he emerges from the snakes mouth!
marcioo9 Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
His face is (for me) similliar for other Envy - from Full Metal alchemist ;P

But anyway your creativity with Dark Lords is full of admiration (for me the Best is Beelzebub)
GnarledContradiction Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I like this one - very exotic-looking! :nod:
Excellent work! =D

Holy sheet this is epic. :D
Hakkyou-no-Yami Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2012
an interesting design for the used to see the giant sea snake.yet this one is just as interesting.
ZAZADU Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2012
I have to say that you are very original!

Where did you get all the info about the 7 princes of hell?
FreeRadicle Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2012
Why oh why do I have this insatiable urge to hug him? O.o
:giggle: :D :hug:
Darksilvania Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
because he is emo-lish cute?
FreeRadicle Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2012
Exactly! :D
FreeRadicle Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2012
This might sound weird, but he kind of looks emo. I guess that makes sense, he's the Hellmouth and always envious. The green/purple contrast looks so cool.

Would you have a quarrel with me using this concept as a character in an RP I am apart of?
