Visual Description : This devil is composed, for the most part, by geometric shapes, namely circles. It is disjointing to view his squat body and stiff protruding belly as his head is turned 90 degrees, parallel with his right shoulder. The positioning of his head gives the impression that something, to his right, has justgotten his attention. All of his features are highly stylized.
