Dante and Vergil in Hell Redux by Imaliea Dante and Vergil in Hell Redux by Imaliea
Inspired by William-Adolphe Bouguereau's painting of the same title (though he spells it Virgil, I think). I took the pose of the two naked men fighting and painted Dante and Vergil from DMC3 in their place ^^; lots of creative license used here >_>

Sweeter, but much more horrifying in the aspects of hell and even some areas of Purgatory.

Why thank you very muchly! And don't get me wrong, I'm totally not offended or anything :D like I said, to each their own! It's hard to adequately express emotion via text... suffice to say, seriously no offense was taken at all :) The original is one of my absolute favourite paintings after all :nod: :)

Of course, I understand your point and your intention! I'm just expressing my opinion. I said "it's okay", so it's not like I hate you cause of this picture. You're very talented after all.

Smiles softly and offers a small hug~

I LOVED your art when you posted on Y!Gallery, I started to watch your art over here on DA as well. I know your style to a degree and without a doubt, I do not believe that you would have painted over something to make it your own work. If the person took the few moments to type in the painting and the original artist, they would have had the information for themselves instead of jumping on the 'Shame on you Wagon', which only made them look uneducated in their foundless accussations of art theft. So you are welcome, very welcome, I am sure that you would have been kind enough to do it for another as well.

Oh I was just wondering because Dante and Virgil are very nice pairs in the story actually.. <3 Virgil is shown as a protective guide,a Messiah who will save Dante from error -- his role model kinda..^^;..and Dante calls Virgil as Master, so when I saw this painting I was like 'oh! this is so freaking awesome.. for some reason :iconmegustamemeplz:
..and then I was impressed of William Adolphe B's original idea that someone from centuries ago could illustrate the characters in this way O.o;
I also love your remake that how Dante looks feminine and Virgil looks muscular. I think Virgil is more fitting for Dante's partner/lover than Beatrice, who is his Divine Love in the book.

Oh I'm becoming a fan girl of the Divine Comedy ; u ;; anyway it's a great book! :iconilavplz:

Heehee :D To be honest, originally it was the painting by William Adolphe B that caught my eye, hence I really only know the bare bones of what it's about from reading about the painting -- I've never read the Divine Comedy, though it's been on my bucket list. Possibly there never was such a scene...oh well!

Cat-fighting? >_>

I believe it's more meant to be "tearing the other guy apart by any means necessary". Or else possibly it's foreplay. I guess we'll never know.

And thanks!

I think they mean because in the original painting its based on, the two figures I painted are actually not the Dante & Virgil figures in the painting, but are tortured souls in hell. ;P

D o you know what they are supposed to be doing in the original painting or your fanfic?

I read the Divine Comedy up to Canto XXVI but I'm not sure if there was any scene like this..
or I would go back and read it again :iconderpinaplz:

Yeah, in the original painting they're the dudes behind the nekkid dudes but.. that wouldn't have been as interesting for this purpose :D unless you mean it's not the Dante & Vergil from DMC... in which case... who the hell did I paint?! o.o ;)

Er...Where exactly did I say I painted over anything? I assure you this painting is painted entirely by hand, and in fact contains many mistakes when compared to the fantastic original work that inspired this tribute.

Whilst I am a little disappointed you felt the need to express this negativity toward me, since as far as I know I have never done anything to personally offend you, I understand and accept your anger, however misplaced. You must've just been having a bad day, yeah? Water under the bridge. Perhaps you are familiar with the artist that defaced the Mona Lisa?

Keep on with your art. One day you may feel braver about submitting more of your artwork to the public for open criticism, as I have done. I wish you the best luck.

Meh heh? Not quite sure what yer meaning, but err... thanks for commenting? If you're looking for deep meaning, I pretty much just liked the Dante's Cry video games, and the painting it's based on. 1 + 1 = Voila! :D

Was going to give a really pervy answer, but instead I'll say since the naked dudes weren't Dante/Vergil in the original painting as far as I remember (long time ago since I researched it now), then this is simply my preference of things :D

Thanks! If you check the original painting it's based on, that's actually what the guy's doing to the other guy --- though it's not vampiric, they're simply ripping each other apart in Hell ;)
