Though not in the same row as Zelus and Vallum, Dolosus would be known as the Beast of the Sky, Ziz.

Powers: The Demon Dolosus mastered lies and deceit, to the point that it had began moving behind the Sunguard. Using its mesmerizing coat and unspoken words, the creature had convinced a number of Sunguards that it was in fact a new being, and not one of the Twenty Primal Demons. But it was not until it was discovered that the monster was slaying the enemies it had convinced behind their backs, by unconcealing it's true form beneath the colorful plumage, that the Fraudulent's greatest ability was revealed, as one feather shed as a lie that Dolosus could, thanks to the Lawless, make reality, enabling the Demon to become uncorporeal, to stretch its bone-like apendages, or even turn it's inner bowels into a bottomless pit, to name a few.

Defeat and Aftermath: With the Lawless's disappearence, Dolosus's greatest strength became weakened to a great extent, and its lies had no effect on the Sunguard, the creature soon fell. In a worthless attempt to escape demise, Dolosus shed all of its plumage, revealing its true form that had been hiding beneath it, which in turn also weakened it greatly. The Beast was entombed in molten rock and then solidified, which was then tossed away to a great drop, where it would remain. Due to their power, any feather Dolosus would grow while entombed would slip out of the rock, carrying with it different attributes of great pain and lies.



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Don't get me wrong this is really well drawn, but someone's gotta address this eventually. I don't know what it actually is but the placement of the red horn part makes it look like a giant phallus. I don't know if that's intentional or not, after all its a demon that looks like it can devour you whole with it's entire torso which looks rather sexual as well.
Just to be clear, the score does not take this into account at all. A demon has to look disturbing and that's an effective way to do it. It worked for Giger anyway.

Ok, that's out of the way let's move on.
The feather texture is incredible, the blue-grey section on the right is some of the most detailed shading I've ever seen. The only weakspot on the drawing is the mask, the shading on has clear sharp lines between the transitions which clash with the smooth transitions on everything else. But overall this is very well done.

henlp responds:

Look, the thing is, I don't draw pr0n, so the phallic imagery has to come out somewhere else, right? The subconscious needs to get it out one way or another! xD

But seriously speaking, it's meant to be more of a hidden beak, and the creature is just more mouth vagina than anything else (for reference, search "Bleach Ayon mouth"). I appreciate the constructive criticism even after two years of it being made.
