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 >_>

Dante and Vergil in Hell Redux by *Imaliea is a fantastic reinterpretation of a famous painting. ( Featured by Lyricanna )

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:

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!

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:

It's a good painting, you did well -_- but I don't like that you made Vergil out to be vampiric. Or at least, that's what it seems anyway. Makes me think of Twilight tweens e_e

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 ;)
