doodles of the day including the life cycle of the narf fairy i came up with in government yeah uh id comment more but im at the library uploading these cause i forgot my pen drive so ill reblog this with more comments later
i decided to draw some interpreations of demons from the Ars Goetia
here’s 21, 23, and 49
21: Count Morax -
Morax is a Great Earl and President of Hell, having thirty-six legions of demons under his command. He teaches Astronomy and all other liberal sciences, and gives good and wise familiars that know the virtues of all herbs and precious stones.
He is depicted as a big bull with the face of a man.
His name seems to come from Latin ‘morax’, that delays, that stops.
In my interpretation, Morax features the skull of a cow instead of his head and a vaguely humanlike body. Bones form his strange arms, and his main body is made of a strange purplish foggy substance.
23: Duke Aim
Aim (aka Aym or Haborym) is a Great Duke of Hell, very strong, and rules over twenty-six legions of demons. He sets cities, castles and great places on fire, makes men witty in all ways, and gives true answers concerning private matters.
He is depicted as a man (handsome to some sources), but with three heads, one of a serpent, the second of a man, and the third of a cat to most authors, although some say of a calf, riding a viper, and carrying in his hand a lit firebrand with which he sets the requested things on fire.
Ok, so I got bored with all these demons looking like men, so I tried this. It’s a snake with one eye and fangs, and the tail is another head, based on a cat. The two weird arms are supposed to be similar to lit firebrands, however he really just gushes flame from them.
49: Duke Crocell -
Crocell (also called Crokel or Procell) is the 49th spirit of the Goetia, manifesting as an angel with a tendency to speak in dark and mysterious ways. Once a member of the Powers, he is now a Duke of Hell who rules over 48 legions of demons. When summoned by a conjuror, he can teach geometry and other liberal sciences. He can also warm bodies of water, create the illusion of the sound of rushing waters, and reveal the location of natural baths.
So, he was an angel. The Powers are armored angels who protect heaven from demons, so in my interpretation he’s a suit of armor with special wings, one of which is shattered to reveal his falling.
He has two spears.
I noticed he teaches geometry. Thus, my headcanon is that he hates proofs.
What do you guys think? Any good? I haven’t drawn in a while….
