Azazel by RevolverWinds Azazel by RevolverWinds
From the account given in the Apocalypse of Abraham
Azazel is a scavenger of sacrifices who pesters atoning sinners by eating their meat offerings. Worse is he has a tendency to badger sacrificers with snarky comments criticizing their disposal of good eats to gods that may not exist.

And the unclean bird spoke to me and said, "What are you doing, Abraham, on the holy heights, where no one eats or drinks, nor is there upon them food for men? But these all will be consumed by fire and ascend to the height, they will destroy you."

— Abr. 13:4-9

I keep looking and looking but I can't decipher HOW it's done!

Are they physically cut, slowly and carefully, from their pages and perfectly matched with complimentary backgrounds and elements? Are they cut from their original sources or are they photocopies?

Can you reccommend any good books for source material?

Was watching Monster Quest, as you were, perhaps, creating this. Reminds of the "New Jersey Devil". Mrs. Buller attested that she was scared out of her mind and pushed her son into the house just before the thing swooped from a tree, over their heads and onto the roof of their country abode. She testified, "We were taking down the Christmas lights when, it came at us...the eyes of an owl, the feet of a bird, a head like a horse, huge bat like wings and it was as big as a bear..."

No one's ever accused him of being an effective demon. But he tries. :p
