Asmodeus

 I keep drawing this guy...


Who is this demonic Asmodeus? (part of my "Fallen Angels" series)

Asmodeus - Al Gore's Internet keeps telling me - is one of the “seven princes of hell." This fucker is a demon whose awful and awesome and nasty wickedness is matched only by his intelligence, power and ability to react. He specializes in spreading lust - or wantonness... and he reaches into all kinds of peopleses... not just ordinary folks, but even divine beings!

Lust is a powerful thing!
