This creature is something like ... mixture of all mystic animals and elements associated with my star sign (Leo, fire), ascendent (Ram, fire) and chinese zodiac (Goat, steel).
I drew him already some time ago, but just like random, nameless experiment.
Today he finally got name: "Sabnach". It's one from few other names for "Sabnock" aka Great Marquis of Hell. I just randomly searched for some nice looking demon's name, but this one have also one big plus - Sabnock is depicted as a soldier with the head of lion. So, why not.
About his pose and also little bit of background...it's connected with the title of picture which came to my mind before first sketch. And I like this contrast between demonic monster and similar pose which belongs to saints.
