Seven Headed Beast by TheDragonofDoom Seven Headed Beast by TheDragonofDoom
" And now in my vision I saw a beast rising up out of the sea. It had seven heads and ten horns, with ten crowns on its horns. And written on each head were names that blasphemed God. " Revelations 13

I felt like doing some art from the last book of the Bible, Revelations. Now, I know some people take Revelations literal (I do) and some don't, but I'm doing this concept at literal. I always wondered how the seven headed beast would look so I did my concept of it. I know some versions of the Bible say that it had leopard-like head and bear-like claws, but I didn't do that cause I couldn't think of a way to draw it without making it look comical, it's just not scary. So I went with a demon-hydra-like beast. This drawing took a very long time to do, but I love how it turned out.

PS, please don't take this the wrong way, I'm not trying to push my beliefs on anyone or anything like that, this is just concept art. And I fully respect other people's views and beliefs. But please also respect my beliefs as well. Anyways, I just wanted to make sure you guys understand. ;)

"Mommy make the mean creature go away! Oh wait you went to heaven, right I'm screwed."(if you've ever read Revelations you get the joke).

Look like some kind of demon dragon but not a dragon. Seven heads like a hydra but definitely not a snake. Is that some kind of incarnation of Lord Satan?

* Points to description* It's the Seven Headed Beast that is mentioned in Revelation, so in a way it is Satan.

Book of human was written by human experience and human knowledge. There is no god say that is true.

So... you believe in Satan, but not God? Or are you just an Atheist? I'm just asking out of curiosity, not to get in a debate or religious battle. It's just I would think it would be kind of a oxymoron to believe Satan to be real, but not God.

I believe in both God and Satan because human is a complicated living being whose personality is mixed with both gods and demons. I will be definitely a moron if i think Satan is real and God is just a fairy tale of some ancient civilization. I do believe God is real and he truly exists somewhere out there but he didn't say that beast is Satan, doesn't he?

It's just my little opinion about it, just curious.

awesome, I'm doing one with the beast having the heads of what an Archangel supposedly has along with a wolf a dragon and a bat or some other creature of the night.
But really great picture, I love the concept, honestly, I hope that isn't what come out of the pit to rule the earth, Lol
