SPN - King of Hell by Sayael SPN - King of Hell by Sayael
I watched Episode 802... and there were some theories on the internet which... I kinda liked.
Not sure tho...

Drew this after talking with a friend about those theories and had the urge to give crowley some... wings.
Damn his red smoke is not. isn't it?

Anyways... Took me 2 1/2h. I feel proud!
Took photo-references of course... he's a bastard to draw!

Enjoy!

Still on Season Four; haven't even met Crowley yet, but I'm excited too. As a serious Good Omens fan, I am always intrigued by the mention of demons with the name Crowley. :)
Absolutely love his wings. They're gorgeous!

He is very much based on Good Omens' Crowley, as confirmed by Kripke, although the fallen angel theory hasn't been at all confirmed yet. I'm not exactly sure it will ever be, not knowing for sure is actually the most fun part. But, it's been heavily suggested all throughout the series since he came in. Not only because of the name, but with 'subtle' hints, like his eyes never flashing and in the last episode his demonic essence's colour, and his jab at Samandiriel.

On the other hand this theory brings up quite a few problems. Angels need a vessel's authorisation to possess them. His original vessel is more than likely okay with all this business seeing as Crowley slipped back in his vessel while he was waiting just outside the door. But as seen in the last episode when he switched, I don't think Tiger Momma was too keen with the idea. Again, unless he managed to convince her in, in a few short minutes.

About the no soul thing, is it literally meant ? Or is it simply a jab ?

On one hand he has essence like any other demon ergo he probably has one, but then again when angels die their essence flashes in their bodies. Is this because they have souls or is it just angelic essence ? If he was an angel then he's necessarily like the rest of them seeing as Lucifer is an angel even if a fallen one.

But, then again, if he isn't an angel and he is a demon, ergo he has a soul. Why would anyone in their right mind say no to that kind of deal ? Having your hand on the King of Hell's soul is the ultimate bargain, and if you think about it, a bold and stupid move on Crowley's part. If he had won the bargain, not only would he basically become a lackey again, but he'd also be in real danger. Anybody could trade for his soul, like say, some angels who want the Apocalypse (because we know very well that there are still some out there).

It basically just too complicated to make Crowley's status official when you look at it. But I like to think he has more in common with Good Omens' Crowley even if he doesn't have a buddy angel (yet?).

It has been a long while since I have read good omens. But it is sitting next to me as we speak. So after I finished my current book I will move on to this one.
Maybe I get a few more ideas out of it, too.
But yes... you got your points right. It IS complicated! I have had those pros and cons, too. Well some of them...
I am thrilled to find out tho.
Crowley is one,... if not saying my very favourite character of the show. So to be honest also one of the only reasons I am still watching this series. D:

LoL, great minds think alike. Good Omens is a book that follows me everywhere, even when I'm not reading it.
And Crowley is one of the reasons I keep watching the series too, because the true end of the series was season 5. It was a perfect wrap up.

Oh god yes. I liked season 5 the most, too.
And yes... good omens is a wonderful book. Gah now I wanna read it!
*grumbles*
Oh well... let's see what season 8 brings. Hopefully more badass crowley. Without goats. XD

LooooL !

Can't you multi-task with your books ? I used to read up to five at the same time, on rotation. But then again, that was when I was still at school.

I really hope we'll see more badass Crowley, he deserves it.

I.. don't know... it feels wrong. Somehow... but I guess I have to force myself to. So many interessting books I bought recently and the current one goes so slowley even if it is pretty good.

That is fucking amazing, I absolutely love it! Especially since my girlfriend and I are constantly posting fallen angel theories about him on Tumblr and we just love the idea.
Crowley looks perfect and the wings look even better, awesome piece of art.

Crowley! <3
I found it fascinating that his smoke was red. I was kind of disappointed that his eyes were red and not, say, yellow, or even a brand-new color - but the color of his smoke has me intrigued again. No other demon - not Ruby, not Lilith, not even Azazel - had a color tinge to their smoke. What does that mean, I wonder?...
That episode was really, really good. Been a long time since I've been so happy with Supernatural. ^^

Oh Crowley why does your face want me to think of the Dream Lord from Doctor Who and his "I know more than you do"....
Sorry if that was random. 0^0

Oh that he's not really a demon and that he's actully an angel? I REALLY want that to be true! and This is amazing by the way. Great color of the wings and good for you because he is hard to draw!

Or that he once WAS an angel. Since angels have no soul blah blah... etc.
It would be an interessting plot-twist... <:

Me too. I've got 7 and a bit of 6 to catch up on. Not TERRIBLE considering I only started watching it in June.

School started up again and I never got the chance to get back to them. Perhaps I'll have to put some on my ipod to watch between classes.

(Ah, thanks!)
