This seems like some sort of soothsayer-like entity. The floating eyeball and symmetrical crest are really striking.

I love the head (especially the flying eyeball).
But I'm not sure to understand the title

Honestly, I don't either. I'm not good with that sort of thing. I just figured he's on the ground. Words aren't my thing

Wow, are those teeth in the interior upper crest? Because if they are, I sure hope it gate-gulps invaders straight to the dungeons.

I also like its quite humanoid body, like it implies human origin, plus transplastic surgery from Hell for improved efficiency. I mean, those petty sinners gotta be useful for something, right?

(Fond of Wayne Barlowe? It shows.)

Yep, those are teeth :)

I"m not sure what I'm thinking when I draw these, I just freestyle and see what comes up.

Definitely a fan of Barlowe :D

I totally love this drawing. 
I adore the details on the creature and the ground! 
The head looks just amazing, though I myself wouldn't have drawn the eye.
The creature at all reminds me of "Pans Labyrinth"... It would perfectly fit in there :D
One of my favourites of your drawings!

Thank you! I imagined that eye doesn't belong to it. Another demon placed one of its own eyes there to use this guy as a sentry.

Whoa... okay, THAT's epic :D
Maybe he can control him with that eye?

You should make a movie or a game with those creatures, the possibilities for storys are endless :D
