Imp by Level9Drow Imp by Level9Drow
An Imp. One of the lowest forms of devil or demon, I think he looks more like a devil genetically though. Imps, unlike a lot of other devils and demons, can be good or evil. Don't know why, it's in their lore. They are very wanting of attention, often get lonely and are desperate to please if they are with a tolerant master. Often many imps learn to be helpful and good. They do NOT want to go back to Hell.

I love imps. If I had one I would love him to death.

EDIT: The tail is tripple barbed. It's not a vagina tail, zoom in and those things you thought were clits are spines. It is, however, a sheathable barbed tail, so it may resemble a vagina. And the fatness of it are the poison glands. But it wasn't supposed to be a vagina tail. I should have considered this when I drew it. Oh well...

Vagina tail? The tail looks more phallic to me. And it's twice the size of the imp's body. This is the largest proportion of phallic size to body size in the world. Btw, awesome detail on the muscles, wings, facial expressions, and the rest of the anatomy. This imp looks like the lead singer of a death metal band.

It was never intended to look sexual in nature. If people say it does than the only fault is in the artists. 

Thanks for the complements otherwise ;)

First I thought that thing at the end of his tail is a poisen sack like that from a scorpion... but now that the word "vagina tail" came up, I canīt imagine that itīs anything else but a vagina! Thanks for ruining the innocence of this picture for me -___-

Btw; awesome picture! ;P

Well, it wasn't supposed to be a vagina tail. But everyone thinks it looks like it. I didn't mean for it. It was, as you say, a poison sack. I don't know why a poisonous dripping barb would be sticking out of a vag, it was supposed to look like it was ble to be hidden and then pop out when threatened. Oh well. I think someday I will redo all these demons.

Yea, although they are never pretty looking. Another idea was that imps are baby demons.

Is it? I didn't see it that way. Strange. I just wanted to make the hard pointy part look like it came out of a cover. No intention for vagina tails, guess it was a freudian slip of the pen.

Either it's an artistic Freudian Slip, or I have a mind that takes permanent residence in the gutter.

I really like how you did the muscles where the wings connect to the back. Most people who draw wings on a humanoid just avoid drawing that area because you have to invent so much new muscle detail for it to look plausible.

I didn't know it looked like a vag. Wasn't intended. Wanted to make it look like it could be sheathed in a protective area if need be. Oh well, guess when you get used to drawing something you can't get away from it.

why not just make it a blade or spike? it could still be poisonous even then. there are more than a few species of snake, and also the gilla monster, who do not hyve stinger or hyperdermic needle type fangs that a poisonous.
personally i would have more grotesque happen with that tail than simple poison. perhaps it injects its own blood into the victim, corrupting them with darker tendencies.

........!! it could be another oppurtunity though. don't your wyverns have stinger tails too?

The imp is nothing like a wyvern, he is humanoid and is not reptillian, if that's what you are suggesting. I'll leave it as is. Too much work to recreate. I'd more sooner just delete imps altogether.

In the SSU imps are bald long-tailed pranksters. Not the two sisters with their tails crossed.

Dude, it wasn't even supposed to be a vag tail. I TOTALLY did not mean to make it look that way. But people are saying it looks like it. I want to change it now, was totally unintentional.

I was going for a sheathable barb look, but it came out as a vagina tail instead. And, on the premise of a vagina tail, I agree with you all the way.

I may take it down, not sure yet.

actaully the original imps are vague, shadow creatures. either way, i have never heard of an imp with a stinger for a tail, or at least in the idea lof making an imp a singular shape of creatures instead of a type.
thing looks more phallic than vaginal to me.

Remember, they have to fit in with the genetics of demons and/or devils. In my Monster Manual demons and devils are not spirits, insubstantial or gaseous but physical and alive with biologies and genese. So the imp looks like it is of some part of the genetic tree that the succubus, maskim, hellhound, etc...are from. They look like, at the least, that they are from the same world. Horns, hooves, spines, fire, red skin, bat wings, etc...

personalyl i am a staunch believer than the likes of demons and angels are fluid in form. at the very least, they can look like anything. i mean, look at some of the divinity we have. multifaced chimeras, living wheels of five with eyeballs, multiarmed deities, some of which have multiple faces or elephant heads. a whole patheon of gods that have animal heads and features. hell, hephastus my favorite god of greek myth, was not even a perfect beign as so foten depicted, but crippled and hunchbacky. he was also one of the least jerkassy of the greeks. though, admtiably, he was somewhat amoral with making deadly metal animals and such, but atleast he didn't fuck every woman he met like some gods (thubms at zeus).
if you think about it, demons might actually be the lesser in the weird looking category. you would expect them to look odd or scary, or even perverse. but who owuld think of a divine being and imagine a bunch of heads or a crippled leg? hell, that is actually the norm it seems with the divinity; more are odd looking beings that the entities of perfection we imagine.

but, in the end you are trying to make them a species. however i do point that no everything on heaven and earth matches other species. there are some native animal species that look nothing like any other creature. some would argue humans look like no other creature; i would be pointing out to them our we have similar ears and facial expressions to gorillas and chimpanzees, but you get my ponit.
