Demons by Sycra Demons by Sycra
Many different creatures inhabit the world of Wraith.  Demons are a very interesting species, and they're probably the most fun for me to draw.  They come in a wide range of forms and patterns.  They can procreate with humans, mystics, animals and even gods or goddesses, and so there are a lot of interesting hybrids too!  Two common traits that all demons possess are black sclerae and a vertical wound in their foreheads.  I'll show more variations in the future, but here are three demons to give you a sense of what they look like.

Commenting super late but I love your interpretation of demons! They got this great serpent-like design to them and best of all? They have an amazing personality. The way you drew them, I can easily see them being stars of the own show set in the Wraith universe. I can't wait to see more variations! I also love how they are not evil. The Wraith universe seems to to have so much depth.
Really good image overall as well.

There's just so much life in them!
The idea about the wounds, do they have an origin story or were the demons always like that? I really didn't expect the whole thing about the prefrontal cortex being damaged making them compulsive. Do you often look into neurology?

Thanks again!  I'm still working on the origins of them.  So far I have some plot ideas I'm saving for a future reveal, I hope it'll be interesting. 

I'm definitely no expert in neurology.  I have a slight interest, because I like learning about how the brain works, and it ties with my interest in psychology, but I definitely don't know any specifics in neurology.  Sweating a little...

And you say you don't have many skills!

Can't blame you for not knowing specifics, honestly. My siblings onced looked up some neurology study and the whole thing was just a bunch of medical names.

Also, you have really great world building skills, very unique and most important of all: incredibly interesting!

I don't think demons are necessarily a species, so much as they are their own Kingdom, like reptiles, mammals, birds, insects, etc. Demons have so many forms and different shapes that it's hard to generally classify them.

Yeah, I don't really know how to refer to them.  I might even change the name, it's just a placeholder for a group.

Those are some attractive and epic looking demons! Also makes me wonder why they have a head wound o.o is it for third eye purposes? o◌̣o

Thank you!  The head wound is more like...  The demons are not necessarily evil, but rather emotional and impulsive.  So the wound there is a wound to the prefrontal cortex, that's responsible for reason and rational thought, to show that they behave more on instinct and are basically more hedonistic.

    (John 14:6) Jesus answered, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father but my me." 

    Repent and turn to Christ Jesus before it is too late. For after this comes the JUDGMENT. Christ died for your sins and rose on the third day, showing that anyone who trusts in him for salvation, will have everlasting life.

(John 3:16) For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

You do realize that unsolicited religious preaching and scripture could be construed as harassment and is exceptionally rude.

Looks like the lore of Wraith is getting really expansive now that you're adding different species into the story, and I always love to see an artist create a unique world form their imagination. It would be nice if you can construct a world map of the world of Wraith, showing where each of the races of creatures come from, and create some unique environments in different parts of the world.
It's cool how overall spiky you made these demons look, makes them feel dangerous. Quick question though... Are the chest pieces on the female demon a part of her clothing attatched to her skin, or is it a feature of their anatomy?

Thanks, I'm really glad you're enjoying the process of development.  For the chest pieces...  Well, the initial design doesn't have any covering, but I figured I needed to censor things so they wouldn't be flagged.  I was thinking some kind of bone 'bra' thing on top of her flesh and not part of it, but tbh I didn't put a whole lot of thought into it.
