Even the mightiest can be forced to cower...
I had great fun with the storytelling in this piece. The idea of a huge Demon being brought low by an even bigger creature, whose form is deliberately only seen through its' shadow, whose an interesting challenge.
The victim still had to look big, and tough, even when beaten. I tried to achieve that through the background details of the skeletons and bones helping to give scale.
The shadow helped create a framing device, with the focus being reinforced through the use of a spotlight on the victim.
