Lord of anger, revenge, and hate, Sador's "true"
name was Xentropos. "Sador the Sadistic" was supposed
to be a name given to him by various human cults on Earth.
These images depict the five demon lords at their time
of creation. At this point, Sador was as thoroughly evil
as the others. Unlike devils, demons have no possibility
for redemption, becuase they are the products of evil. The
devils, at least, were once angels. And human beings have
souls (and therefore choice). Demons however are simply
products of evil, and therefore had no avenue for
redemption. The story
was to be about the redemption of a demon. Sador's metamorphasis
from an enemy of mankind into it's defender.
Of all the images I have drawn of this character (maybe
even all the images I have drawn period), this one is by
far my favorite, because it shows off my (now improved)
basic anatomy skills. I bought a book on anatomy specifically
for this image. Still far from perfect, but much improved
over what I had done previously.
I kind of regret cutting the image off where I did. This
image does not show Sador's cloven hooves or his tail, which
were key to the appearance of the character. But the rest
of it came out really nice.
