Hell's aquatic Demon Lord of envy.
Leviathan, a giant demon that dwells within the lakes, rivers, and oceans in Hell. He migrates from one spot to another by crawling on his armored underbelly. Leviathan can raise his internal temperature to boil the water around him killing anything within proximity. He will also convert internally stored water into steam which is then held under pressure using powerful muscles, and forced out in jets with his lateral siphons, and the many orifices along his body to propel himself with tremendous speed. Leviathan can conceal his surface attacks by creating a thick fog or by temporarily blinding his victims with bright flashes of light.

Envy: a feeling of discontent or covetousness with regard to another's advantages, success, possessions and wishes that the other individual lacked it.
Leviathan has the ability to restrain/seal/prevent the use of an ability of another being by simply looking at them with piercing eyes as bright as the rays of dawn. In essence he makes it so a being is unable to use a selected power/capability.

Leviathan's length = 137 ft. 6 in. or (41.91 m)
To get an idea of scale, an average human male is 5 ft. 6 in. and an average Blue Whale = 90 ft.

OMG this is incredible!, its like Dragon meets Dunkeosteus. I swear Subnautica had to look to this for inspiration for their Sea Dragon Leviathon

Very cool.  Did you look to the Sea Dragon Leviathan for inspiration? Personally I like the massive fins in this design more than the tentacles of the Sea Dragon.

He's smaller than the Reaper Leviathan from Subnautica x3 the 112 meter Sea Dragon Leviathan would have him for lunch.

Just imagine playing Ark: Survival Evolved and you're trying to tame a Megalodon, or swim away from a Manta when this giant thing comes out of the dark depths to tear into it or your tribe XD

I don't know where people get the idea that Behemoth and Leviathan are supposed to be demons.  In the Hebrew Bible and the Christian Old Testament, Behemoth and Leviathan are described simply as part of God's creation.

So are fallen angels...

Fair point.  But in the Book of Job, Behemoth and Leviathan are simply described as creatures of might that will not be tamed by the hands of men (paraphrased, yes, but that is the essential gist).  And later, in the Book of Isaiah, Leviathan's purpose is stated to be simply: "to frolic".  Perhaps I'm missing a passage somewhere?

As for this artwork itself, the creature feels ominous and foreboding, and the coloring and shading do well to highlight this aspect.  The glowing eyes and the small scale of the human underneath do well to emphasize the sense of power one might feel if one were confronted by a creature of this size.

Job well done.

That idea doesn't come from the Bible itself, but from medieval monks and theologians who studied it during the Middle Ages. St. Thomas Aquinas used the Leviathan (along with various other Biblical creatures, such as the Behemoth) to personify the Seven Deadly Sins, with Leviathan representing the sin of Envy. While this does disagree with the Bible, it became widely accepted.
