Artists, both aspiring professional and terrified amateur alike, seem to struggle a bit with illustrating demons they either meet in person or see in photos—regardless of how poignant the impression left by their encounter or how clear a given photo may be.
The most accurate illustration I've seen since readers started submitting drawings of the demons they see in my photos and the ones they meet at home is The Pillow Demon, by aspiring artist Daniel Cabbage:

It's not that I need drawings of demons, especially when I have photos; rather, it's the drawing that convey the characteristics of a demon that need to highlighted in the study and classification of same.
In the illustration, the artist drew a toothless, open mouth. That's not the same, and anyone looking for demonic activity may not know what to look for without knowing that a pillow demon's face can appear distorted upon emergence until it was too late.
Here's an attempt by the same artist to sketch a hobgoblin demon:

In sum, any drawing of a demon must capture the unique qualities of its specific variety first, and then the details that make it unique among its kind. When drawing a demon, think of yourself as the artist who accompanied Charles Darwin on his expedition to document evolution. You have to emphasize the aspects most important to the purpose of drawing them at all.
