Though the adversary would be scarier than this frightening depiction, it captures the message.

It looks more like a Lovecraftian horror than a dragon. Which is kinda fitting, I guess.

Oh wow, you drew this dragon more terrifying than I could have ever imagined him. Great work!

Fantastic work! The perspective is incredibly well done, and I am really enjoying the twisted envisioning of the "great dragon"! Definitely have a thumbs up from me.

I am at a loss for words.......... This thing looks so twisted and evil, I had to do double-takes first time I saw it.

Yet at the same time a great depiction of what the devil in Revelation must be like.

Could you have made the dragon more pretty? I thought since Satan is the greatest of all the angels he should look inspiring as the dragon. Beast can be beautiful too. In the bible when someone saw Satan's face they got filled with pride.

Excellent artwork - A real testament (pun intended) to the vivid
imagination of primitive writers of the biblical fantasy stories.
I file it all under "Esoteric Symbolism".

Your visual interpretation is mind-blowing!

You have patience for multiple heads, landscape, and SCALES?!?!
I commend you for those, I haven't worked my way that far yet. Love the faces, especially the slug-like one in the upper-left corner. Some even look like their puking ;p
