Hellfire’s Glare

Hellfire's Glare

This hatched in my head while listening to the song “Hellfire” from the soundtrack to Disney’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame, all while pondering what would motivate the Devil or any other demonic entity to wreak havoc on humanity. I decided they would have this extreme disgust for all organic life, with all its self-cannibalization and the fundamental unfairness of evolution by natural selection (since it depends on certain individual organisms having more reproductive success than others), and therefore set out to burn it into total extinction. That’s why I chose to represent this anti-organic Devil not as any kind of living creature, but as a sentient form of fire. Which you have to admit is pretty destructive towards almost all life it touches.
