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 >_>

Ohh! I remember finding this years back, but not knowing who did it. I thought it was a great interpretation, then, and maintain that thought now. Great light and shadow, and mimicry of the original painting.

Congrats on the DD! You deserve it :)

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

The Pervy answer would've been accepted. XD But I always thought it was Dante and vergil. XP

The reference is from is from Dante's Inferno book one of the Divina Comedia (Divine Comedy)...Dante is the poet guided through hell by the philosopher Virgil. Dante and Virgil were both real people, but Dante took liberties with both of their lives as well. Love this image. Nicely done.
