It looks like demonic creature called volgra from this book: www.goodreads.com/book/show/61…

They live in one of the hellish dimensions/purgatories and prey on humanoid human souls that incarnate there in form of ugly gnomes. Volgras eat their prey by absorbing them throw their skin. One among their methods of catching prey is pretending to look pityful. That expression on the face of the creature and general form is why this picture looks like volgra to me.

Btw those human-gnomes who die that way in that dimension incarnate in the dimension further below that is made of exrements of volgras...

That book is full of fascinating details xD
It also has a ton of info on heavenly worlds and on that topic is more imaginative then Dante's Divine Comedy.

Bolas corrupted and warped demons resemble him in gold look and lanky body.

The dark and damp colours mold in to one, but the more I look the more I see. Very creepy, very nice.
