Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just $3 per month or $25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!

For the month of February we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 193 people to reach our goal of 3,100 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in March!

Please check out our Supporter Upgrade and consider coming aboard!

Buer

Share

A drawing I did of Buer, based on the original illustration by Louis Le Breton in the 1863 edition of Dictionnaire Infernal. I think this one turned out pretty good. It is only my first time trying to do this style, regardless. The face is a little off, and there are probably a lot of little mistakes here and there, but overall this has been a really good learning experience. I hope to do more stuff like this in the future, and if anyone sees this and knows some resources where I might be able to learn how to do the style properly (hopefully on paper, instead of full-on woodcutting), it would be much appreciated if you could share.

The original I have in my sketchbook has a little blot of ink over the nose so I've fixed that up digitally in this version. I didn't want to use any tipex/whiteout because I feared it may have just made things worse.

The original illustration from Dictionnaire Infernal can be viewed on Buer's wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lesser_Key_of_Solomon#/media/File:Buer.gif

I read of this peculiar demon in the Ars Goetia after I played the Belial game. This very much resembles the woodcut depiction. I wonder what symbolism is behind it exactly.

This for real frightened me when I saw it. Nice.

Sounds like I'm getting the desired effect here. Thanks for the very kind 5 stars!
