Drawings still  
I have finished coloring "Legion". I switched over to him because I knew he'd be easier of everything that needs to be worked on.

I'm very happy with his design and his nice glowing lines that pulsate.

This is 8. He's currently in the ink stages. I was working on him today but decided to work on 10 instead. So ruler of the watery realm and not just the ocean. He is responsible for the legend of the Kraken and other sea monsters and lake monsters. His true size isn't that large I don't know exactly yet but nowhere neat the size of a true giant squid. BUT one of his powers is being able to change size. So he could be as small as a loligo or as huge as a ship eating kraken. And he doesn't need water. He can hover. So I love the notion of this strange floating giant squid. He looks like a normal squid and I don't know if I'll add anything to make him more "demonish" but I think that a giant squid is already an awesome monster that doesn't really need any more help. So that makes three floating creatures in the hierarchy. Badrazell, this guy and 10. Not sure if I'll make him a typical red squid or go for fancy colored dots since squids have chromatophores that make them change to lovely colors. And as you'll see next I'm contemplating some rank shifting.

This is 9. Bad pic I know. I was too lazy to scan so I took a photo and photos of drawings always turn out like crap. So this guy also needs a name and he's the smallest of the hierarchy. I'd say 3.5 feet tall. Probably my most demon looking creature apart from Thag himself. In ancient times he started all the vampire legends and was associated with bats because of his wings. And in modern times he accidentally started a new legend that ties him to aliens after a bad kill on a Puerto Rican farm. He was partially seen and it earned him the new name of Chupacabra or the goat sucker.
I'm actually thinking if his servant should be a type of goat. I think that might be funny and also tie to the whole demon symbolism. I don't know yet if that's to obvious to go that route but it's funny to think.

Ok now there's the thing. Chris brought this up and it's comical that he ranks higher than the space ship though he doesn't look powerful. I know in my universe size doesn't matter. Again Thag is not the biggest. But still hard to think that an organic can defeat a ship full of laser and bombs. So I'm thinking of switching 9 and 10. I hate making so many changes really annoying. I'm pretty good at creating stuff as it should be from the start and not having to make a lot of changes but this is all still in its infancy and I'm definitely fine tuning everything. Eh. I don't know all his powers yet other than blood sucking, flying and dimensional shifting (spirit form ) that all demons have.

Gosh I need so many names now.

I think I have more to talk about but will post later. Time to eat.

Yes that's fine. I have a few people here that aren't on DA so I post the same stuff here too. Yep you commented on him and I liked what you said. Well I'm thinking his lights are powered by soul energy as all the demons feed on that. Some need more than others.

I love squids and cephalopods in general. They are some of my favorite creatures. They look very alien and yes I think he's great and probably needs very little changing if any. I had to choose between making 8 a squid (Kraken) or a sperm whale (Leviathan). I even contemplated a hybrid like tentacles and a whale tail. But then decided against that as it would be odd to be made of parts of your enemy. Hum, but that gives me the idea that he still might have a sonic blast as part of his powers.

I think it's funny this guy is so small. I like he turned out creepy and ugly. Hehe. And very alien too. Yes I have heard about the whole sunlight thing being added. I am going to have him prefer the night but he won't melt in the sun so no problems with Sorath unless Sorath decides to fry him with a light beam. Few could stand against that. I do have a funny short story I need to write about some sun sensitive vampires though. I think I do need to change the ranks and it's only one reversal. Even if I gave him those powers which I most likely will yes it won't do anything against a machine. Mist seems like a means to hide and get away but not offensive to defeat. Yeah I think I need to switch the ranks.

Human forms are a total different matter and the ranks might totally change if they did human forms. Ophidius without his knives would be in huge trouble for choosing such a frail form. Haakon could totally pound him.

Thanks I needed one for thinking or "hummm".

I thought it would be neat as those two species are natural enemies for real but then I started to not like the idea so much. A sonic blast would be in keeping with a whale's abilities.

So far yes. Ophidius is a wimp. Even Leeanix can defeat him despite being the same build almost.

Legion looks cool, and I would say that the reason he is so low in rank is because of his hive mind. If the scrawny little bat guy had the right kind of mind powers he could paralyze Legion by disrupting the communications between whatever makes up the hive mind.

The giant squid is scary. They do have stories about those devil squids that drag down divers. I think those are Humboldt squids. The ones I saw on Nature were flashing red and white light. I saw a huge squid on a Nature episode about the deep sea. It was salmon pink and had blue eyes.

Thanks. I'm very happy with how he turned out. I had no idea I'd have a spaceship as party of my 11 so that does kind of change things. I'm fairly sure they'll be little mechanical crabs. They'd have little hands to manipulate objects with so that would be good. I have to draw them up as I don't really imagine how they'd look. I'm still not so sure and think I need to switch those two because again I hadn't expected to end up with a ship and I can't see how that little guy could stand against lasers, guns and bombs.

Yes Humbolt squid are very dangerous. I love all cephs but I can see why people would think they are scary so I think he probably doesn't need much changing. Yeah the bigger ones are red/pink and white but I have not decided yet what colors mine will be.
